The Duke Blue Devils continue to hold of the Kansas State Wildcats in the second half, leading 62-47 with just over 13 minutes to go. The 15 point margin is the Blue Devils’ largest of the game. The Kansas State starting five is still unable to get it going, combining for only 15 of Kansas State’s 47 points.
