Duke slogs through poor shooting night, drops Temple

Blue Devils reach Coaches vs. Cancer Classic title game, where Coach K will face off against Johnny Dawkins' Stanford Cardinal

Style points, or any points for that matter, were in low supply on Friday night.

No. 4 Duke found a way to slog through the muck and get a win anyway.

The Blue Devils survived a poor night of shooting, playing tight defense of their own to stifle Temple, beating the Owls 74-54 in the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic semifinals at the Barclays Center.

Duke (4-0) will face Stanford (3-0) in the tournament championship game Saturday night (9:30 p.m., TruTV) in an intriguing coaching matchup. Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski will face off against his former player and assistant coach, Stanford coach Johnny Dawkins, for the first time.

The Blue Devils remained unbeaten and reached the tournament final despite their poorest night of offense in the young season. Duke’s 74 points were far below the season average of 101 it carried into the game.

Duke’s shooting was below 30 percent well into the second half before the Blue Devils finally heated up to pull away from the equally cold Owls.
