Duke lost in Cameron Indoor Stadium on Tuesday night, the first time they’ve lost at home since March of 2009.

They’ve now lost back-to-back games for the first time since February of 2009, by a combined 26 points to a pair of teams -- N.C. State and Miami -- that have lost home games to Wofford, Eastern Kentucky and Miami.

The biggest issue?

Their defense. Duke got lit up for 87 points by the Wolfpack and 90 points by the Hurricanes, and the issue may not have a quick fix. Over at NBCSportsWorld, I took a deeper look at just what is wrong with what the Blue Devils are doing, and why it’s a problem that may not be going away anytime soon.
