Duke men's basketball pulls past Georgia Tech, breaks 3-game skid

There’s still plenty of basketball left to be played this season, but this felt a lot like a must-win game for head coach Mike Krzyzewski and his Blue Devils.

Luckily for the Blue Devils, they got just what they wanted Tuesday night in Cameron Indoor Stadium, as Duke downed a pesky Georgia Tech team 75-68.

Ultimately, Alvarado could not lead his team to a win, as he committed a crucial turnover on the following possession and could not corral an offensive rebound with 31 seconds left.

The Blue Devils would maintain a narrow lead until a fastbreak layup from Georgia Tech’s Jordan Usher knotted the score at 52 with 9:27 left.

As it so often does, Goldwire’s tenacity seemed to jolt the rest of the Blue Devils awake, with freshman DJ Steward taking the reins from his senior teammate as the first half drew to a close.

The Blue Devils will get another chance to prove themselves Saturday night as Clemson will travel to Durham for a 12 p.m. tilt in Cameron Indoor Stadium.
