  • Preview: Furman at Duke

    Duke's 111-game winning streak in non-conference home games isn't likely to be challenged when the No. 2 Blue Devils host Furman on Wednesday. The Blue Devils have trailed for only 29 seconds through their first five games — all double-digit wins — and claimed the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic title with wins over Temple and Stanford behind tournament MVP Quinn Cook. The Paladins are making their first road trip of the season and have dropped two of their first three contests, including a 58-55 loss to UC Davis on Saturday. Duke has been dominant inside thanks to center Jahlil Okafor, who was named the ACC Freshman of the Week for the second time after averaging 14.3 points, 8.3 rebounds, 1.7 blocks and 1.3 steals in three victories last week. The Blue Devils have shot an impressive 51.8 percent from the floor and should have success against a Furman team that ranks near the bottom of the NCAA defensively, allowing opponents to shoot 47.8 percent. The teams are meeting for the eighth time but have not squared off since 1965; Furman's only victory in the series came in 1951.
