Maryland 40, Duke 38 at the half

COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- At the end of a loud and frenetic first half here at the Comcast Center where a celebratory crowd has gone quiet after Duke rallies.

Here are a few observations as we get ready for round two:

  • Duke went zone in the final three minutes after Maryland skewered the Blue Devils with 59 percent shooting early. It worked. The Terps led 40-29 before the zone and failed to score after it. I'd be stunned if Mike Krzyzewski didn't go back to it to start the second.
