Mike Krzyzewski

No. 8 On Thursday, the unranked Duke Blue Devils defeated the unranked Oregon State Beavers 54-51 to avoid an upset. Many anticipated Duke basketball to distance itself from the Beavers, but the Blue Devils struggled to do so. That was largely caused by the Blue Devils’ historically poor offensive precision.

The Athletic’s Brendan Marks highlighted that Duke basketball’s 26.7 percent field goal shooting against Oregon State was the worst the team has ever experienced in a game.

Duke basketball resets history

Wow, Duke had the lowest shooting percentage (26.7%) in a victory in program history tonight. Has only under-par performances three other times, period.

Naturally, many Duke basketball supporters are left thinking about Mike Krzyzewski, the Blue Devils’ former head coach who recently retired from collegiate basketball coaching.

The Blue Devils had a field goal percentage of just 16 for 60 against Oregon State. In comparison to the Beavers, who made 14 of their 43 field goal attempts, Duke basketball had 17 more attempts. Additionally, Oregon State was 6 for 21 from beyond the arc compared to the Blue Devils’ 5 for 29.

Ryan Young came off the bench and recorded a double-double as well, scoring 11 points and pulling down 15 boards. Kyle Filipowski led the Blue Devils with a double-double of 19 points and 14 rebounds in 31 minutes.

In terms of adjusted offensive efficiency, Jon Scheyer’s Duke is now ranked 13th, so the Blue Devils are hoping that their dismal shooting splits against Oregon State were nothing more than an isolated incident.
