Virginia Tech had success driving the basketball and then kicking it out to Bibbs, Smith, Muller and Hill who contributed to the Hokies 54.5% shooting percentage from behind the arc. On the night, the Hokies shot 53% from the field, but allowed Duke to shoot 59%.

The Blue Devils were paced by Jahlil Okafor with 30 points and Quinn Cook who added 26. Duke had a hard time defending Virginia Tech's dribble drive attack, but the athleticism of Duke proved too much for the young Hokies.
