I believe Duke losing to Lehigh was the biggest upset in tournament history. Yes, five other No. 2s have went gone down in defeat to No. 15 seeds. But, the other five aren't programs with the pedigree of the fine university in Durham, N.C.
Mason Plumlee was Duke's best frontcourt player this year. And in their game against Lehigh, Plumlee was a perfect 9-of-9 from the field.
Since he was pretty much having his way with the Mountain Hawks, you would think that the Blue Devils would keep feeding him until Lehigh made an adjustment and started to shut him down.
But they didn't.
Actually, Plumlee was 7-7 in the first half, which means he only attempted two shots from the field in the second half.
That's just not smart basketball.
One of the reasons why Mason Plumlee only took nine shots was that the Duke perimeter players were too busy shooting threes to feed him.
If they were "lights out," no problems. But, as a team, Duke shot 6-of-26 from beyond the arc. That's a frosty 23.1 percent. Brrrrr!
Austin Rivers, Seth Curry and Andre Dawkins shot a combined 3-of-19. Somebody should have told these players that they weren't on.
