No. 1 Duke cruised by No. 8 San Diego State in the Round of 32 today, 68-49, locking up its spot in the Sweet 16.

The game was never in question in the Time Warner Cable Arena, with Duke outscoring the Aztecs in both halves, and its defense remaining stout. Jahlil Okafor had a good day, ending the game with 26 points on 16 shots, but the real showing came from the Justin Winslow who grabbed 12 boards.

Impact Player

Coach K. We’ve known Duke is great for a long time, and that’s due in no small part to this man. Today, coaching shined, as San Diego was clearly outmatched.

Strange, Yet True

The only stat that San Diego led except for turnovers? Offensive rebounds. They had 11 to Duke’s 4.
