Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports

  • Rysheed Jordan is leading the charge for the Johnnies, who has been their anchor on the transition and on the set offense.  So far into the game he is also leading the team with 16 points on 6-for-9 shooting
  • Although he has been relatively quiet, D'Angelo Harrison has been shooting 3-for-5 for 7 points, including a near buzzer beater at the end of the first
  • As a team, St. John's is 55% from all areas of the floor, 50% from 3-point range, and 63% from the foul line.  Though its been quiet so far from the foul line from both St. John's and Duke in this game
  • As a team Duke is shooting 44% from all areas of the floor, 33% from 3-point range, and 50% from the foul line.  Jahil Okafor lead's all Duke players with 10 points, but so far Duke has had a rough time against St. John's defensive pressure
  • Towards the end of the first half, St. John's missed a few lay-in shots off the transition.  The transition play has also exposed some areas of Duke's play that St. John's could take advantage of
  • Chris Obekpa has been a perfect match to Okafor so far underneath the basket, Obekpa has six rebounds so far in the game, but surprisingly no blocks just yet
Enjoy the second half!
