No. 2 Duke beats Temple 90-67
DUKE 90, TEMPLE 67

By JIM O'CONNELL
AP Basketball Writer

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Mike Krzyzewski has been doing OK
for himself as a college basketball coach.



He has more wins than any other Division I men's coach with 936.
He has four national championships and he has led the U.S.
national team to two gold medals.



Still, he doesn't take anything for granted, not even when his
team is off to a 9-0 start for the 15th time under his
direction.



"I couldn't expect to be 9-0," he said Saturday after the
second-ranked Blue Devils beat Temple 90-67 at the Izod Center.
"I have dealt with unrealistic expectations since 1986. I deal
with them every summer with the U.S. team. It's a good place to
be. I'd rather have people expect something of you than not
expect something good of you.



"We're a beatable team. We just haven't been beat yet. With our
conference we'll be tested a lot."



Seth Curry scored 23 points and big men Mason Plumlee and Ryan
Kelly had double-doubles as Duke prevailed in the matchup of
unbeaten.



Curry was 5 for 9 from 3-point range, leading Duke's 12-for-20
effort from behind the arc.



Curry injured his left ankle in the win over Ohio State and he
hasn't been able to go at full strength in practice but
everything seems OK in games.



"He had good hard practices yesterday and the day before,"
Krzyzewski said. "When he gets going we have to call stuff for
him and we did."



The Owls got within 12 points twice late, the last at 72-60 with
6:38 left on a basket by Jake O'Brien.



After a free throw by Plumlee, Curry scored the next seven
points for Duke, the last a 3-pointer with 3:38 left that gave
the Blue Devils their first 20-point lead, 80-60.



"Curry was great today," Temple coach Fran Dunphy said. "He
stepped up and did what he had to do. When we were just sniffing
to get back in it, he hit some tough shots. That's a fabulous
team and a fabulous coach."



Plumlee finished with 16 points - the first time he was below 19
this season - and 14 rebounds. Kelly had 14 points and 10
rebounds for Duke (9-0) while Quinn Cook added 14 points and
made three 3s.



Duke hadn't played since last Saturday and with final exams
coming up, the Blue Devils don't play again for 11 days.



"I think it shows we're pretty mature," Curry said of the week
off. "We've been off all week and we came out and played with
the same aggressiveness, the same way we've been playing the
first few weeks of the season. We knew we had a good team, but
this team could beat us. We knew we had to come out here and
play well."



The Blue Devils have three wins this season over teams ranked in
the top four: No. 3 Kentucky, No. 2 Louisville, No. 4 Ohio
State.



Quenton DeCosey had 13 points for the Owls (6-1), who were
looking for their best start since going 14-0 in 1987-88, a
season that ended with a regional weekend loss to Duke in the
Izod Center.



"I thought their defense was really good and we added to it by
rushing," Dunphy said. "We got out of character and didn't have
the patience we needed. When you play a team like Duke you have
to manage every possession and we didn't today. Our guys played
hard and we were a little bit scared early. We got some
nervousness going for us early and that put us on our heels a
little bit."



Duke shot 51.9 percent (14 for 27) and held the Owls to 35.9
percent (14 for 39) on the way to a 46-32 halftime lead. The
Blue Devils made 12 of 16 foul shots in the opening 20 minutes
while Temple didn't get to the line at all. Temple finished 1 of
4 on free throws.



Duke, which came in being outrebounded 36.2-35.2, again had
trouble on the boards. The Owls grabbed 10 offensive rebounds in
the first half and had a 19-17 advantage overall.



The Blue Devils shot 47.5 percent for the game (28 for 59) and
held the Owls to 39.7 percent (29 of 73), including 8 of 21 from
3-point range.



Duke is 20-1 at the Izod Center under Krzyzewski and the winning
streak is now at 12 games. The Blue Devils are 10-0 in the NCAA
tournament here, all regionals that led to Final Four berths.
Their only loss in the building under Krzyzewski was 77-75 to
Arizona on Feb. 28, 1989.



"I don't talk to the team about it because they don't know and
they don't care about it," Krzyzewski said.



He did say what happens when he walks in the building for the
first time after not having been here in a year or two.



"I see (Christian) Laettner hitting a jumper off a side out of
bounds play," he said. "I see (David) Henderson dunking over
(Alonzo) Mourning. I see J.J. (Redick) going for 100. I see a
lot of great things in the building and today will be another
one. There are no gimmees here. These are all big-time games."



Duke has a record of 113-16 when it is ranked No. 2.



The game drew a crowd of 12,157.
