No. 1 seed Duke beats Robert Morris 85-56 in NCAA opener

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Robert Morris kept fighting, even if top-seeded Duke wasn't about to let the Colonials make history.

The 16th-seeded Colonials hung in while the Blue Devils made every shot to start the game, and then fought back to twice get within 10 points midway through the second half. But Duke pulled away to an 85-56 win Friday night in the NCAA Tournament's round of 64.

For coach Andrew Toole, it was a teachable moment.
