The Blue Devils face less-heralded foes in Army, on Sunday at 1 p.m., and Eastern Michigan, on Wednesday at 7 p.m., at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

The last time the Blue Devils fell at home against a non-conference opponent on February 26, 2000 when St. John's scored a shocking 83-82 victory on the road.

Duke's terrific freshmen trio of R.J. Barrett, Zion Williamson and Cam Reddish combined for 75 points with Williamson's 27 leading the charge.

Check out some of the best plays from the Blue Devils' second game of the season.

Mike Krzyewski the head coach of the Duke Blue Devils gives instructions to his team against the Kentucky Wildcats during the State Farm Champions Classic at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on November 6, 2018 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

"We have noticed that we've been getting a lot of attention", Duke freshman Zion Williamson said afterward. One of the team's multiple freshman phenoms in Williamson was only needed for 23 minutes in this game but dominated in every way when on the floor. You remember that? We were up 20. The following three keys are things Duke needs to do in order to get better and take care of Army.

Matt Wilson scored 15 points and Tommy Funk added 12 for Army (1-1), and Funk hit back-to-back 3s to pull the Black Knights to 67-61 with just over 12 minutes left. "In the second half, we played together more".

But the Blue Devils turned the ball over on their next three possessions.

Realizing he may have said a little too much, Kerr then says he going to change the subject before he gets fined.

"We play really physical in practice so that kind of flowed over into the game with all those fouls", Bolden said.

Williamson's near-perfect half allowed Duke to take a 50-42 halftime lead over the Black Knights. He also added in a block and a steal and only committed one turnover. But despite the Blue Devils' relatively comfortable 22-point margin of victory in the end, future opponents with good, fast point guards now have a blueprint for how to attack them.
