Duke basketball takeaways against Cal State Fullerton:
The Starting Lineup Change
The biggest news prior to the Duke game was the change in the starting lineup for the Blue Devils as Jeremy Roach started the game while Trevor Keels was moved to the bench.
Roach was one of Duke’s best players at the ACC Tournament in Brooklyn while Keels has been struggling as of late.
The change was not something new for the Blue Devils this year as the sophomore guard began the season in the rotation before AJ Griffin was inserted into the starting lineup. Roach also started when Keels was sidelined with his lower leg injury.
It makes sense for the starting lineup to remain the same for Duke’s remaining games in the NCAA Tournament.
