The Duke Blue Devils exacted their revenge against the team that handed them their first loss of the season, North Carolina State, in a 98-85 home victory to improve to 20-2 on the season and 7-2 in the ACC.

It was the Blue Devils' fifth victory out of their last six games dating back to the first meeting between the two schools on January 12. 

As Duke had established their largest lead of the game at 22 points with 18:43 left to play, North Carolina State regained their composure and slowly shot themselves out of a double-digit deficit all the way down to eight points. 

However, the Blue Devils remained resilient down the stretch as senior Seth Curry converted a pair of free throws late and fellow senior Mason Plumlee slammed the door shut (literally!!) inside 30 seconds left to play. 

So, what are the five things we learned following Duke's victory over North Carolina State? Click ahead to find out!
