Duke, Syracuse out to avoid trouble

"Earlier in the year, everyone was in a good flow and everyone was in a good rhythm, and we're not on that anymore," guard Trevor Cooney told reporters after the Boston College loss. "We just got to find it and get back into it. We're a good offensive team, we've had games where we put up a lot of points. We can do it, we've just to get back on it."

The Duke game was Syracuse's last productive offensive performance. The Orange shot a season-high 57.4 percent from the field against the Blue Devils en route to their third-highest point total this season.

"I think we work too hard for our points," Fair said. "We've got to get some easy buckets going, and that will open up things."

It's never easy in Cameron for opponents. Duke has been swept in a regular-season series just four times since 1996-97. The Orange will attempt to become just the third school to accomplish the feat joining North Carolina (2006-07, 2008-09) and Maryland (2004-05, 2006-07.)
