Scheyer leads balanced effort as Duke makes easy work of Binghamton
GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Just in case Duke's players forgot the lesson they nearly learned the hard way last year, Mike Krzyzewski had a stern reminder for them: There's no such thing as an easy out in the NCAA tournament.And then the Blue Devils went out and proved their Hall of Fame coach wrong.
• Duke had six players score in double figures, moving within a win of reaching the Sweet 16 for the first time since 2006.
• The Blue Devils scored 24 points off 15 Binghamton turnovers.
• Binghamton, which was one of four teams making its first NCAA tournament appearance, lost in its debut.
