Mason Plumlee says there is no excuse for the Blue Devils loss Friday against Lehigh in the NCAA Tournament second round.
GREENSBORO, N.C. --- A few Lehigh students at the Greensboro Coliseum gave the "we're not worthy" salute to Duke's Mason Plumlee after a rim-rattling dunk two minutes into the Blue Devils' NCAA Tournament game Friday night with their Mountain Hawks.

GREENSBORO, N.C. --- This is it for Miles Plumlee.

Duke Basketball had their first open practice session of the NCAA Tournament earlier today and beforehand, Coach Mike Krzyzewski and various players met with the media.
Among the questions asked were those wondering about the health of Ryan Kelly. According to Coach K’s comments, it’s looking unlikely that the junior forward will be able to suit up for many, if any, minutes tomorrow...
