Duke basketball takeaways in victory against Texas Tech
Find Mark Williams Earlier
Mark Williams has proven to be one of the best centers in the country this season, and Duke has used him in very effective ways.
However, the Blue Devils have to establish their big man earlier in the game.
Williams was a non-factor in the first half against Texas Tech before Duke fed him the basketball early in the second half to open up the rest of the floor. And the 7-foot center delivered.
Mark Williams had 12 points and four rebounds in the second half compared to just four points and four rebounds in the first half.
Duke must get the big man going early in the Elite Eight in order to open things up for its perimeter players.
Tipoff between the Blue Devils and Razorbacks in the Elite Eight is scheduled for approximately 8:49 p.m. EST from the Chase Center in San Francisco, California.
