Wednesday night Duke found itself in a matchup with an extremely small team, one it dominated in the post from start to finish. Saturday night, things will be a bit different for the Blue Devils as they get set to battle the Washington Huskies at Madison Square Garden.

Duke set to host big-time back

The Blue Devils are hoping to make some noise between now and Signing Day and while that's tough to do with limited scholarship numbers they'll be hosting one of the most dynamic running backs still available. Jamie Gilmore is excited about his second trip to Duke.

Duke's Austin Rivers Maturing Quickly, Expanding Game

There is no doubt that when Austin Rivers came to Duke he was a scorer and that pretty much was his claim to fame. Rivers was a good basketball player, but his game was a bit one dimensional. Granted that dimension is one major factor why he was one of, and in some cases, the top recruit in the class of 2011. But overall his game wasn't complete. He was cocky, and as I have...

No. 7 Duke beats Washington 86-60

The Washington Huskies spent almost a week in New York City. They got to see some Broadway shows and other points of interest. They also got to play two ranked teams in Madison Square Garden and left the Big Apple with two losses.

Scott Suggs to redshirt

NEW YORK CITY - It was hoped that senior guard Scott Suggs would play Saturday versus Duke at Madison Square Garden; now Suggs won't play at all this year.

Huskies drop third in a row on the road

NEW YORK CITY - Washington's first half struggles continued Saturday, and not even the Tony Wroten Show could bring the Huskies back from a 14-point intermission deficit, as the Duke Blue Devils defeated UW 86-80 at Madison Square Garden in game one of the CARQUEST Auto Parts Classic.

Lackluster start may prove costly for Washington in March

It's no understatement to call Washington's path to an NCAA tournament bid an uphill battle after an 86-80 loss to Duke on Saturday afternoon. At this point, the Huskies face the equivalent of climbing Mount Rainier to get back into at-large contention. Normally a pedestrian 4-4 start and a lack of marquee non-league victories would be flaws Washington could overcome in...

Washington G Suggs to redshirt for the season

Duke Beats Colorado State 87-64 Colorado State

Watching Duke last night against Colorado state there are two distinct schools of thought, one being yes they won the game handily and the other being considering where we are in the season, they did not look very good doing it, decent but not good. First and foremost I’m a fan and it’s hard not to compare Duke to the other top flight teams in the top 25, wrong or right, I...
