We can safely say that Duke was pretty mad after their 90-63 loss to Miami earlier this week.  Coach K apparently kept the players up until 1:30 am practicing as punishment.  They bounced back today though to beat Maryland by 20 points.  Big man Mason Plumlee had 19 points, and none were better than this reverse put back dunk with three minutes to go in the game.  Very well could be the dunk of the year in the NCAA.  Check it out below.
