As for Duke, the Blue Devils are still No. 2 in Ken Pomeroy's rankings behind Kansas (1-0).

No. 4 Baylor 65, No. 23 Arizona State 59: Nalyssa Smith had 16 points and 11 rebounds, and Baylor overpowered ASU inside for a victory Sunday night in a game played on the Navajo Nation. Duke on Tuesday night announced itself the college basketball team to watch in 2018-19, as its freshmen sensations Zion Williamson, R.J. Barrett and Cam Reddish led the Blue Devils to a 34-point, season-opening win over Kentucky. No conference games. We've barely started the season.

The No. 4 Blue Devils looked lethargic and lax against Army in the first half of their home-opener, allowing the Knights to hang around for far longer than they should have.

Marques Bolden's quick-handed steal of an Army pass in the backcourt set up his pass to Barrett for a dunk that gave Duke a 60-49 lead with 16:28 to play.

Even though the performances came in their first collegiate game, the freshmen know tougher games lie ahead.

"They [Duke] could beat Cleveland", said Pierce. "They're a talented group, obviously as everyone saw". "They played hard. They played together. But to stay consistent is really the biggest key".

Duke maintained a 44-37 lead when Williamson hit one of two free throws at 3:12 before Army scored the game's next five points, taking advantage of Duke defensive lapses.

In film review and practices since the team returned to Durham early Wednesday morning, Duke's coaches have stressed the importance of preparation and consistency to the young team.

The score may not show it, but Duke did have some difficulties.

Something that should excite people about Zion is that he did this against the Kentucky Wildcats, the number two ranked team in the NCAA and not against a lower leveled team. Expect to see at least three former Blue Devils selected at the top of June's draft.

Coach Mike Krzyzewski called it "a flawless game for us following Kentucky" and said his team's preparation wasn't as at a high enough level beforehand.

"It's one thing for somebody to tell you that everybody's going to bring their best against you, that all their shots are going to feel like they're going in", Williamson said. "It kind of goes in one ear and out the other".

On Tuesday night, Duke routed Kentucky 118-84.

"We were forcing shots because we were trying to rely on our talent", Williamson said.
