Need to know: UConn dropped to 4-4 on the season as its offense struggled in a loss to Duke.
Duke's Tyus Jones scored 21 points and Amile Jefferson added 11 points and 13 rebounds as all five starters scored in double figures for the Blue Devils.
The Jahlil Okafor (12 points, 10 rebounds) vs. Amida Brimah game never really materialized. Brimah got a foul called in the first minute of the game and barely played. Brimah, coming off a 40 point game, had zero points, 1 shot, 1 rebound, 2 blocks and five fouls.
UConn shot 42.6 percent from the floor, but was 3 of 13 from 3-point range and 7 of 13 from the free throw line. Duke held a 25-7 edge from the line (34-13 edge in attempts), the difference from the game. UConn made 23 of 54 baskets, Duke 17 of 48.
Ryan Boatright had another terrific game with 22 points. Kentan Facey added 14 and Daniel Hamilton 10.
