Duke rolls past Rhode Island, 87-62

Mike Krzyzewski stands alone in the record book. More

On the season, Rhode Island averages 76.8 points, 34.3 rebounds and 15.4 assists per game.

Rhode Island's squad is much older than Duke's and brings experience that Duke's youngsters lack.

The Blue Devils dismantled the No. 15 Iona Gaels in the First Round, 89-67. Though they're bigger than Iona, Rhode Island will still be undersized up front and must find another way to contain Duke's big front court.

The game should be a showdown of strength against strength as the productive offense of Duke takes on the stingy defense of Rhode Island.

Now it's up to teams like the Duke Blue Devils to save the good name of the conference. Can the young backcourt of Duke stack up against Rhode Island?

Here are the game details for today's Duke vs Rhode Island basketball game in the 2o18 NCAA Tournament Round of 32.
