Dec 2, 2010 6:28 AM

Duke freshman Kyrie Irving scored 31 points to go with four assists in Duke's 84-79 win over Michigan State at Cameron Indoor Stadium on Wednesday.

“He’s one of the best point guards I’ve ever seen,” senior teammate Nolan Smith said. “He’s very coachable. He loves being on the court with us. Whenever I have something to say to him, he looks me in the eyes and listens. He’s been a great teammate.

“But he’s on a different level as far as confidence. We know there are going to be games where he’s just going to go – and we’re going to follow him.”

Irving has been given great freedom by Mike Krzyzewski.

“We’ve changed the way we play because of him,” Krzyzewski said.
