DURHAM, N.C. -- Duke is used to being on the right side of a blowout -- not the losing end -- and thanks to Rasheed Sulaimon, the Blue Devils got back to that familiar role.The freshman scored a season-high 25 points and No. 1 Duke bounced back from one of its worst losses under Mike Krzyzewski by routing Maryland 84-64 on Saturday."This was just a game to show basically what our character was like," Sulaimon said. "Are we going to fold after a big loss, or are we going to step up and be men?"
