Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski on Luke Kennard's breakout shooting performance vs Utah State: "He wasn't shooting the ball at the speed of the game... he needed to pick up the pace." In other words, Kennard was still thinking he could get away with playing the same way he did in high school. He turned up against the Aggies with a season-high 22 points on 7-9 FG including four 3-pointers. He entered the game shooting just 33 percent from the field and had made 4 of 23 from behind the arc.
