In a Sunday full of close games demanding clutch performances, Duke beat Creighton 66-50 in an absolute slugfest.

The No. 2 seeded Blue Devils avoided the upset against Doug McDermott and the No. 7 seeded Bluejays despite being dogged by poor shooting and foul trouble.

Ryan Kelly and Mason Plumlee were both saddled with four fouls for much of the second half, but contributions from the freshman pairing of Rasheed Sulaimon and Amile Jefferson helped Duke push through a physical game.

Sulaimon finished with 21 points while Jefferson provided solid defense against McDermott. In the end, the Blue Devils had enough to get past Creighton and go to the Sweet Sixteen.
