DURHAM, N.C. -- Duke didnt shoot the ball well nor did it have one of its big runs against Florida State. Rather, the 18th-ranked Blue Devils gave their Hall of Fame coach a milestone win by aggressively crashing the glass, converting on turnovers and cashing in at the free-throw line. Rodney Hood scored 18 points to help Duke beat Florida State 78-56 on Saturday, giving Mike Krzyzewski his 900th victory in his 34th season at the school. Jabari Parker added 14 points for the Blue Devils (16-4, 5-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who shot 31 per cent but nearly doubled the Seminoles on the glass while scoring 29 points off both turnovers and offensive rebounds. Krzyzewski is the all-time leader in career victories in mens Division I with 973. He joins Syracuses Jim Boeheim as the only coaches with at least 900 wins at one program. "Thats a lot of wins," Krzyzewski said. "I thank Duke for keeping me. Ive been blessed with being at one of the greatest schools in the world. Great schools dont necessarily always have great people in command. This school has. ... We have a good thing going here and Ive been blessed to be here for over three decades and take advantage of that." Duke used an 11-0 spurt late in the first half to build a 20-point lead on the Seminoles (13-6, 4-3), who didnt get the margin below double figures again. But Dukes shooting percentage and its 18 field goals were both season-lows. The Blue Devils had a 47-24 rebounding advantage, including 27-7 on the offensive glass. The 27 offensive rebounds were the most for the program since grabbing 28 against North Carolina A&T in December 2002, according to STATS LLC. Parker, who had a career-high 15 rebounds in Wednesdays win against Miami, finished with 14 rebounds, while Hood had nine. Duke also got a boost from reserve big man Marshall Plumlee, who posted career-highs of seven points and seven rebounds -- with each rebound coming on the offensive glass. "Rebounding is something weve really tried to make a focal point these last few weeks," Plumlee said. "Alongside our defence, I feel like its something thats starting to show in recent games so no matter who we play were hoping to come up with the W on the boards and defensive stops." The Blue Devils scored 29 points off 17 FSU turnovers and made 34 of 43 free throws for the game -- including 20 of 27 after halftime to offset a 6-for-27 shooting performance (22 per cent) in the second half. "I just think they had our number today and did a very good job of playing to their potential," Seminoles coach Leonard Hamilton said. "And they did the things I thought would give us the most problems. I dont think we countered it appropriately." Okaro White scored 14 points for Florida State, which shot 50 per cent but saw the rebounding and turnover troubles undermine that. "It will mess with you emotionally," White said. "You got a team shooting so many threes, theres a lot of long rebounds. Youre trying to box out, and your normal tendency is to run to the rim, thinking the ball will fall there. They really killed us on offensive rebounds and turnovers. They were competing." FSU, which won in its last trip here on a last-second three-pointer two years ago, led by one point for about one minute in the first half. But key scorer Aaron Thomas, who was coming off a 20-point effort against Notre Dame, finished with two points on 1-for-7 shooting before fouling out with 5:13 left. Krzyzewski was animated and often unhappy with his team in the early minutes, slamming down a chair during an early timeout and shedding his suit jacket by the 12-minute media timeout. Then, after Duke looked to be in cruise control, the Blue Devils went nearly 7 1/2 minutes without a basket in the second half. FSU got as close as 11 points with 6:51 to play before Quinn Cook ended the drought with a driving basket that made it 71-54 with 3:25 left. Hood was a last-second scratch from the starting lineup. Krzyzewski said Hood was sick, though Hood told reporters he had to change after spilling Gatorade on his uniform. Hood missed his first five shots, but he scored 14 points after halftime.

Found a running back in Nick Grigsby, Buck was right when he said he was a slasher!Aaron Kelly had the half of his career, crazy-good TD catch to open the scoring in 2014, can he sustain that production?Hate to see Cory Watson continue to have hammy problems, hes a difference maker for that offence when hes healthy.Drews smiling for many reasons, but the biggest reason has got to be for the amount of one-on-one coverage he saw against the Argos. When looking back at the video its unbelievable how much cover 1 he faced. Play after play, flat across the board, man to man coverage. Its a quarterbacks dream to get that percentage of man coverage in a game. When the Argos tried to apply pressure and blitz, Drew had a relative easy time reading the alignment of free safety Matt Black. The young QB, making his fifth career start, was seeing everything clearly. He spotted the ball with great accuracy and timing when exploiting the one-on-one coverage and easily detected zone coverage delivering the ball with anticipation and location. Fun night at IGF experiencing the birth of a new coach, new quarterback and new attitude for the Blue and Gold! Ricky Rays Huddle in Toronto The old saying "When you least expect it, expect it", applies here. I for one, thought Ricky was going to shred the Bombers. Hello Mr. Wrong! Theres another saying/philosophy that "offence is the best defence". Well Id say thats true to some extent here but Winnipegs defence was swarming the record-breaking quarterback from 2013 all night. With that said, Ray showed his pedigree and still posted solid numbers that most QBs would take in a heartbeat, 27-38-283-2TD-0INT.A few costly turnovers, out of his control, and this game may have not been so one-sided, just saying! Looks like Ricky and Co. are going to have to score often if the Argos defence does not come around quickly. Really thats their job anyways, score and score often. Id be surprised if they dont! Mike Rileys huddle in Edmonton The same gutsy style of play we fell in love with in 2013 was on display against his old teammates at BC Place, with a bit of a twist. The slide was incorporated into Mikes game and it was effective. Not that he didnt get smacked around out there, which he did, but all in all against a talented Lions team, the Eskimos leader led and did it without flinching. What a difference a healthy Adarious Bowman makes. Next to "Thick Nik" Lewis in Calgary, is there a more physical receiver in the CFL? Bowman balances the field so well and opens up Fred Stamps to do more, although Fred was fairly tough to find in the Dome, except on one occasion when there was a bust in the BC secondary. Shamawd Chambers caught my eye as he seems to have an extra bounce in his step. The third-year receiver from Wilfrid Laurier was exploding out his breaks and played with a discernible difference of confidence. Great to see. Kevin Glenns huddle in BC The night started out fantastic for the New Lion King, showing off his accurate arm and leadership skills, knifing the Eskimo secondary with precision-like daggers in the first quarter. He found Gore, Poblah, and then Harris who owns BC Place Stadium. Since coming back to the stadium after the refurbishing, Harris has 24 touchdowns in 26 games played! Glenn needed Harris to produce because Ian Logan went MIA, due to the lockdown put on him by the Edmonton defence. Next possession something strange happened, Eddie Steele stole Glenns pass attempt over the middle, showing sweet hands on an interception that no doubt he will tell his grandchildren about. That was the first of four interceptions Glenn would throw in his debut. I know he will take responsibility for the mistakes and has, but you have to give some props to Edmontons defence and the pressure and poise they played with. Finding a way to get it done offensively and getting Logan involved wont get any easier as the Lions go on the road and face a tough Montreal defence this week. I expect the new Lion King to be on the hunt and rebound for the sake of the pride! Bo Levis huddle in Calgary Climb on up, settle into the saddle, put a quarter in the ride and lets roll. Thats what Bo Levi Mitchell did when he took the reigns of the high powered and explosive offence. In some tough windy playing conditions he was patient, efficient and accurate when he needed to be. The biggest throw obviously was the 102-yarder to Maurice Price right before the end of the first quarter with the howling wind at their backs. Who knew those would be enough points to win the contest at that juncture? Ill bet ya, Rich Stubler, the Stamps new defensive coordinator, and his troops had a sneaky suspicion. The new signal caller for the horsemen is going to have the luxury of many weapons at his disposal. One of those weapons is second year receiver Jeff Fuller, who many believe is poised to have a big year. Bo was looking for him and found him on three occasions. He can always look for Marquay McDaniel, Nik Lewis and Brad Sinopoli. If the defence has miraculously covered all those guys then Bo can always turn to the ground and pound with the CFLs Most Outstanding Player in 2013, Jon Cornish. An eight-year veteran, Cornish suffered a concussion during the contest and fortunately for the Stampeders they have a bye this week and there will be no pressures to play the warhorse. If Cornish is not able to go in a few weeks, Mitchell can always hand the rock to a guy Ive had my eye on for a while, Matt Walter, third year running back from the University of Calgary. I cant wait to seee this kid fed the ball on a regular basis.dddddddddddd Bos got to be smiling while atop of that thoroughbred! Troy Smiths huddle in Montreal Watching this video back on this game was painful in many ways. Lets just say theres a lot of work to be done in Montreal. Troys huddle is loaded with exceptional talent from top to bottom and its great to see Brandon (two-way) Whitaker back on the field. Two-Way is an exceptional multi-faceted back that should see the ball early and often until Troy settles in. There is much hype around the former great receiver, Chad Johnson and justifiably so. But Chad has a long way to go before hes consistently contributing at a high level here. Hes playing "Z" receiver in the Als offence, thats the receiver that is the farthest one away from the quarterback to the field side. Tough for a young quarterback thats learning this game to consistently find the Z in the offence. Got to move Chad around but you cant hurry that process because hes just getting accustomed to this game. Duron Carter is a second year player that everyone has pegged to break loose. Good call! But after watching the video, Duron needs to find consistency in his game before thats going to happen. Hes on when he thinks hes got a chance the ball may come his way and off when its a run play or the ball is going the other way. Easy fix, if the young receiver wants to. Its called being a pro and hustling on every play. If I was Troy, as those two gifted athletes figure out the game, Id be locating SJ Green a ton and continue to rotate in Brandon London, Kenny Stafford, Eric Deslauriers, and Dave (Sticky) Stala. The big boys up front are as good as they come in the CFL, rely on them, Two-Way, SJ, simplify things, run it, play action, screen it, high percentage throws, move the launching point and use the unusual amount of talent in that huddle.This is the second year in a row that I find myself scratching my head when it comes to the decisions being made or not being made in Montreal. Im telling ya that puts an experienced quarterback such as one of the best, if not the best ever, in Anthony Calvillo in peril, let alone a young and talented one like Troy Smith. Give LaPolice a call, please! Zach Collaros huddle in Hamilton The young hired gunslinger is in town replacing the old wily veteran. Hes a decade and a half younger than the old fart, more affordable, hes promising, all shiny bright, and new. With that comes some growing pains and an initial drop-off that you hope to coach up to where he comes around quicker rather than later. But in the meantime, games such as what we witnessed this past weekend are going to happen. That was an old fashioned butt kicking and what impressed me about Zachs performance is how he handled it, for the most part. I didnt like it when he walked past head coach Kent Austin while Austin was coaching him up! Not a good sign, but I understand, stuff happens in the heat of the battle. But I liked the way Collaros kept getting up after he was stapled to the ground, time and time again. You look at his numbers and although not great, he really did not force the issue and turn the ball over like he could have very easily. He hung tough and will learn from this debacle.His huddle was a bit depleted without Andy Fantuz and a healthy Greg Ellingson. With that said thats a talented group nonetheless. Recognition, protection and discipline are three areas which will get better with time and reps. With every rep, things will become a little clearer for the young quarterback and he will be able to recognize fronts, stunts and coverages better with each and every one. The ball will come out quicker, improving the so-called protection problems. The young quarterback will be better equipped to put the boys upfront in more advantageous positions improving the offence overall. Discipline is a learned characteristic, the Ticat coaches will pound that one home! In the meantime Zach lived and hopefully learned to fight a better fight another day! Mamma always said, there will be days like this! Unfortunately, Ive been there and more than a few times, ouch! Lets just hope Zach is a faster learner than I was... Darian Durants huddle in Saskatchewan I can hear Darian introducing himself to Anthony Allen and saying, "Anthony, Im Doubles, and Im going to hand you the ball about 20-25 times a game and your lucky ass is going to get to run through holes as wide as the prairies, here in Saskatchewan, that those guys, yep, those big dudes over there, open up for you". "Now Ill buy the dinner and the cool refreshing drinks for all yall just as long as you promise to hang on to the ball and catch it every now and then, sound like a plan"? And so it went...Doubles gave the ball to Anthony over and over and over again. And just as Darian said it would happen, the holes were as wide as the prairies in Saskatchewan. Now what I wanna know is, did Doubles buy dinner and the cool refreshing drinks? Darian looks mighty comfortable, even the most horrific conditions could not dampen the production offensively. Sure not great numbers passing, that just was not in the cards. Adapt and conquer, thats what they did. They went to the ground-and-pound and found themselves what looks to be a keeper in Double A. Brett Swain continues to impress as did Ryan Smith. I know Saskatchewans offence was cheering the loudest for the performance their defence was laying down, led by Ricky Foleys three sacks and six tackles. The Riders made the most of a poor situation at Mosaic Field and for the folks that could be on hand, they were full of Rider Pride. Ready, Break!!! ' ' '
