Kyle Singler - DukeNot that anyone gets an “easy” route to the Final Four but Duke may have a bracket in which their biggest challengers bludgeon each other on their way to the Elite 8.

No such luck this time around as he and his teammates came out hot, making their first six shots on the way to building a 36-23 halftime lead.
