Duke notes: Kelly-Cowher to wed, Jefferson carbing it up

Mike Krzyzewski and Duke are holding the 11th K Academy this year, which is essentially a fantasy camp for adults to be coached by Krzyzewski and former Duke stars. The proceeds go to the Emily Krzyzewski Foundation and general scholarships at Duke. Both Krzyzewski and some of those former players sat down with the media on Thursday as the camp began. Ryan Kelly has had a pretty...

Krzyzewski: ACC should think big

Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski believes the new-look Atlantic Coast Conference could be the best basketball league in the country -- and should act like it. The ACC is growing to 15 teams next season when Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Notre Dame join. National champion Louisville comes aboard the following year to replace Big Ten-bound Maryland. Krzyzewski said Wednesday that ''...

Krzyzewski: ACC should think big with 15 teams

Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski believes the new-look Atlantic Coast Conference could be the best basketball league in the country - and should act like it. The ACC is growing to 15 teams next season when Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Notre Dame join. National champion Louisville comes aboard the following year to replace Big Ten-bound Maryland. Krzyzewski said Wednesday that ''if...

Jefferson Bulking Up

With the departure of big men Mason Plumlee and Ryan Kelly, Duke will rely on Josh Hairston, Marshall Plumlee and Amile Jefferson in the post. Thing is, Hairston, while an excellent role player, is 6-7 and limited as a post player, Plumlee is still in a boot following foot surgery and Jefferson weighed 195 as a freshman and was punished by bigger, stronger opponents. The most likely...

Duke beats 'Cuse to win NCAA title

Duke beats Syracuse 16-10 in NCAA lacrosse final

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Duke rallied from an early deficit to beat Syracuse 16-10 on Monday and win its second NCAA men's lacrosse title. The Blue Devils trailed 5-0 in the second quarter. Jordan Wolf had four goals for Duke (16-5). Josh Offit and Josh Dionne each scored three times. "We were down 5-0 and we really had no choice, we had to make the next play, and that's...

Why is Syracuse Thinking of Switching Sugar Bear Thompson to Defense?

Color me as disappointed Ron Thompson could be switching to defense. The Post-Standard ran a piece saying Sugar Bear is getting a look at defensive end. I realize there are depth issues along the front seven for the Orange. It’s nice that Thompson played well on defense back in high school. But the reason he was a 4-star recruit out of high school was for his soft pass catching...

3 Keys to Syracuse Football Reaching Shafer’s Goal of a Winning Season

Expectations for Syracuse football have been slowly climbing since the end of the Groobers Error, and Scott Shafer believes a winning season would be cause for celebration in a new power conference. SU is no stranger to exceeding expectations. When Ryan Nassib entered his senior season, there were grumblings whether he could adapt to pocket pressure well enough. He responded by...

DUKE LACROSSE: 2013 NCAA CHAMPIONS

It's the end of Memorial Day Weekend, and for anyone who follows college lacrosse, that means a new champion has been crowned. After an amazing tournament (where my bracket was almost perfect), (7) Duke played (1) Syracuse for the title today.
