This lopsided score doesn't tell the full story about this game. Portland State showed up. Barrett Perry can build something here. And I won't be surprised if Portland State leaves the PK80 with a win.

Portland State's Deontae North was sitting near the scorers table, waiting to check in. Somehow, he drew his second technical of the game. That's just bizarre. Never seen anything like that.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Portland State's Deontae North hit with a technical foul after he appeared to throw a punch at Wendell Carter Jr. during a fight for a loose ball. Silly.

Duke is making it simple now. Using its size, length and athleticism to attack in the paint. Didn't do enough of that in the first half. Offensive rebounding rate is up to 41 percent right now.

Well, it's real out here in Portland. Duke struggling to find and hit shots against this Portland State zone. Not very physical, either. On the other end, Portland State (46.2 percent from beyond the arc) is loving this Duke zone. Finding open looks. Duke was sloppy in the first half and now they're down.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

No size. But they're flying all over the floor. Challenging a bigger team for rebounds. Attacking inside. Doesn't matter if Portland State wins this or not. Gained a lot of respect off this first-half effort.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Portland State entered this game shooting 43 percent from the 3-point line. The Vikings started 5-for-9 from beyond the arc in this game. Portland State fans are going wild for this surprising start.

In this tournament, Duke needs Tre Duval to play like a true point guard. Turnover on previous possession was just the result of him trying to force a pass into the post. Portland State starting strong. Duval has to be the guy who helps the Blue Devils play with more patience.
