Duke could lose every game for the remainder of the season, but after Saturday's performance against the Cavaliers, it won't make a difference. The Blue Devils (1-4, 1-1 ACC) outlasted a beleaguered Virginia squad to gain their first victory of the season in dramatic fashion.

Welsh looks to heal wounds of defense

Of all the questions facing Cav coach George Welsh this week as he looks to improve upon Saturday's collapse at Clemson, the biggest is "Where do I begin?"

"Between the academic suspensions, the assault suspensions and the injuries, we're hurting," Welsh said.
