Duke's blitzing in Morgantown was eye-raising.

The Blue Devils got key hits and had great pitching all weekend in a sweep of Texas A&M and host West Virginia.

That hitting and pitching combo was a lot harder to find when injuries piled up earlier in the year.



Now they're getting healthy. Shortstop Ethan Murray is back at practice and ready to contribute.

A couple of weeks ago, the freshman got smoked in the face. He broke several bones and is currently being protected by a mask.

Duke won't sneak up on Vanderbilt -- one of the best teams in the country.

Maybe they don't have to.
