Dockery sparks Duke past N.C. State, 81-68

January 19, 2006


— Playing third-fiddle to fellow Duke seniors J.J. Redick and Shelden Williams doesn't bother Sean Dockery at all. He gets plenty of attention and respect where it matters most - in his own locker room.

"If people overlook me, oh, well," Dockery said. "My team and my coach, that's my family, and they know what I'm doing. That's a great feeling."

Helping No. 1 Duke stay unbeaten feels pretty good, too.

Dockery made a go-ahead three-pointer and set up another an instant later by Lee Melchionni to help the Blue Devils beat No. 14 North Carolina State, 81-68, Wednesday night.
