1. Mason Plumlee continues one of the most bizarre free throw shooting seasons in memory. Through the first seven games of the year Plumlee - historically bad from the stripe - made 79% of his FTs. In the following twelve games he seemed to remember who he was and made them at a 52% clip. Now he's turned it around once again and has made 27-36 (75%) over his past four games, including 7-10 vs BC where he made two with 0:46 seconds left in the game to tie it, and another on Duke's final possession to give them the lead. 2. Olivier Hanlan continues to make his case for Freshman of the Year. Against Duke he had 20 points, 4 rebounds and 2 steals. He's been limited to single digit scoring just four times this year, and only once in conference play. Add Hanlan to the list of young players from Canada who are currently playing at a high level. 3. BC had just 9 assists on 21 made baskets. The 43% assist rate was the 3rd time in four games where they generated an assist on less than half their baskets. Joe Rahon led the team with 3. 4. For the 2nd time this year Boston College failed to record a single blocked shot. Boston College is currently 278th in blocked shots, which matches Steve Donahue's worst season as a coach. This is the fourth game BC has lost by one possession, so a few more blocks would go a long way. 5. Duke won 62-61 in a 62 possession game. They just avoided scoring less than a point per possession, which would have only been the 2nd time this year. Since tempo free data became available (2000) Duke has never had a season where they held below a point per possession fewer than two times. Duke's offensive efficiency is currently No. 6 nationally.
