Kyle Singler hit two free throws with 19.4 seconds left, then stopped Rhode Island's top scorer down the stretch to lead Duke (No. 5 ESPN/USA Today, No. 8 AP) past the Rams 82-79 on Sunday.

Jon Scheyer scored 23 points and was 13-of-13 from the free-throw line, and Singler finished with 21 points for the Blue Devils (3-0). They fell behind by 12 early and trailed for most of the way before scoring on their final seven possessions to rally for their NCAA-best 62nd straight non-conference victory at Cameron Indoor Stadium

Sounds like Duke wasn't screwing up, they just got played straight up.

Oh, yes they were screwing up. Rhode Island isn't even in the top half of their conference and yet they seriously outplayed Duke during all but the last 2-3 minutes of each half. All the Dukies but Sheyer and Singler couldn't score at all. They got outrebounded and played lackadaisical defense.
