After a six day break, the longest remaining on the schedule, Duke takes the court again tonight against Miami in their second road game of the season. The last one didn’t go so well, as the Blue Devils fell to NC State in their first game without senior forward Ryan Kelly. The game against Georgia Tech last week showed that this Duke team still has a lot of work to do for it to be talked about in the same conversation as the one with Kelly in the lineup. Hopefully the week of practice they’ve had since last Thursday will have been enough to get the win against a tough Miami team (4th in RPI, 19th in Kenpom).

By Wayne Bumpass – The Duke Blue Devils’ offense hasn’t looked the same since 6′ 11” senior flex forward Ryan Kelly re-aggravated a foot injury against Clemson that caused him to miss the ACC and NCAA tournaments last season. Not only has the Blue Devils had to adjust without the senior forward, but on offense the team has missed the spacing that is created by Kelly’s...

While the ACC season is young, and Duke has played less than a quarter of its games, the Blue Devils are going through a huge transformation right now so its appropriate to point out any impressive number the players on the team are putting up right now. Duke suffered its first loss to NC State during this stretch, so I didn’t expect the numbers to be this good, but four Blue Devils...
According to a Nike release, Duke is one of twelve college basketball teams around the country to wear “Hyper Road Elite” jerseys this season. Last season, the Blue Devils were one of eight programs to wear the Nike “Platinum” jerseys and while many middle aged men complained about the look, the players themselves seemed to enjoy them.
They Hyper Road Elites sound pretty...
Duke has had some bad beats, but last night was the worst one since they were beat by 27 against Clemson in 2009. Coach Mike Krzyzewski forced his players to remain on the floor that night to soak in just how bad they had gotten beat, so they could take some lessons from a negative. The Blue Devils ended that season with a 23-point defeat to Villanova, the last time they shot as...
By Duke of Hoops – After losing the top ranking following their loss to NC State, the Blue Devils only fell out of the top spot for one week. Both teams ahead of them lost their games, while Duke beat Georgia Tech by a good margin. Tomorrow night comes another chance for Duke to get their first win on the road, and first ACC win on the road, as they head to Coral Gables to take...
“Celebrate good times, come on!” – Kool and the Gang Historic losses usually do not have the Duke Blue Devils as the victim, but that is exactly what took place on Wednesday night in Coral Gables, when the Miami Hurricanes manhandled Duke by the tune of a 90-63 score. The loss was the third-worst ever for a team ranked #1 in the nation. This game was never really close, as...
Life is good for Hater Nation. The Patriots lost at home in the playoffs despite leading at halftime, Notre Dame lost in the BCS title game in spectacular fashion, the Lakers are playing like the Bobcats and the Dwight Howard experiment is working as well as Crystal Pepsi, the Cowboys missed the playoffs yet again as Tony Romo continues to do Tony Romo things, and last night the...
UPDATE: This was a poorly stated joke, evidently.
According to Dan Patrick on his radio show today, he reported from sources “who work [at Duke]” that the team’s charter plane arrived back in Durham after midnight. About an hour after arriving in Durham (at 1:15 according to Patrick) the Blue Devils began practice at 1:30 AM and didn’t stop until 4:45 AM. I’ll link audio...
With the Class of 2013 basically wrapped up, Duke has moved most of their recruiting focus on to the junior class. Tyus Jones and Jahlil Okafor remain atop the Blue Devils’ wish list but Duke will likely need to replace wings Jabari Parker and Rodney Hood after next season. That is in addition to Josh Hairston and Tyler Thornton, as well as Andre Dawkins, were he to return after...
No.1 Duke was handed the worst loss ever for the No.1 overall team team in the AP poll on Wednesday night against the University of Miami. Duke’s guards (Quinn Cook and Seth Curry) played atrocious, shooting a combined 1 for 29 from the floor. Miami went on a 25-1 run during the first half and never looked back. Is Michigan the next team to take a stab at No.1?These three consecutive...
The Duke Blue Devils took over the top spot in the latest college basketball polls this week. However, their stay at No. 1 isn't going to last long after No. 25 Miami completely dismantled Duke on Wednesday. The final score read, 90-63, but the game wasn't nearly as close as the score might indicate.
One man who was in attendance to see the upset victory was Hall of...
The UConn Huskies women's basketball team has dominated the Duke Blue Devils as of late. However, the Blue Devils were the only undefeated team in women's basketball and figured to challenge the Huskies on a snowy evening in Storrs, CT.
That challenge didn't happen though.
Behind a 27-7 run to start the second half, UConn went on to beat the Blue Devils 79-49...
If I Had a Vote, College Basketball Top 251. Michigan, 17-1. Most complete team with the best point guard.
2. Duke, 16-1. Losing Ryan Kelly hurts but the Blue Devils are still loaded.
3. Kansas, 16-1. I’d draft Ben McLemore no. 1 in the NBA Draft at this point.
4. Syracuse, 17-1. Doing what the Cuse do with a lottery quality point guard.
5. Indiana, 16-2. I still think the Hoosiers...
