What's wrong with Duke's defense?

The Blue Devils' defensive issues were glaring in their loss at Boston College. They're still scoring at a torrid pace, but why do they have such problems stopping 3-pointers and controlling the paint?

Duke haters beware. Almost no way the Blue Devils fall off the top line even with loss at B.C. Villanova likely No. 1 overall in next bracket if it finishes off Philly sweep of La Salle and Temple.

At the under-4 timeout on ESPN, Duke's locked in a one-possession game at Boston College. The Eagles sank 11 3s before halftime and led in the second half by as many as 10. Gary Trent Jr. has hit five 3s for the Blue Devils, but his teammates are just 2-of-16 from beyond the arc.

Duke 70, BC 69 with 6:29 left. Marvin Bagley was dominant down low early, but has been settling for perimeter shots. Blue Devils struggle to shoot it from deep.

The 3pt shot is mandatory for BC to pull off the upset. BC (11-15) from distance and up 48-41 at the half. But as important the Eagles are playing strong defense and collectively working the glass. Upset alert in Chedtnut Hill? ESPN
