Overall Game Analysis
Duke should have lost this game. Although they did make a comeback at the end and hold onto the lead for the win, UCF played a better all around game than Duke. They had no answer for Aubrey Dawkins and were only able to stop Tacko Fall by getting him into foul trouble. Duke got a couple lucky bounces and survived this game, but got exposed in the process.

He provided no offense but did grab a lot of boards including 4 on the offensive boards
Jordan Goldwire (14)
SG 
He got some big time minutes which he may not be accustom to, which may be why he was almost a non-factor

Tre Jones (3)

Comments On Offense
The whole Blue Devils team is based solely on Zion. If he is playing well so will the rest of the team. This may be to their demise as they get deeper into the tournament since they really haven't had anyone offensively to rely on outside of Barrett and Williamson.

Comments On Defense
They had the right plan, get Tacko Fall in foul trouble early. However, they got burned in the paint by both Fall and Dawkins. Duke has more holes than people expected, which is going to hurt them in their upcoming games.
