Impact Of Mason Plumlee In The NBA

Maon Plumlee (Photo credit: Jeff Gammons/Getty Images ) The NBA draft is less than a week away, and the Duke Blue Devils have three potential picks for this year’s draft.  The highest of those picks will be Mason Plumlee.  He could go in the lottery but we will have to wait and see.  His game looks like it will translate well in to the NBA so let’s see what he can bring to...

Preparation pays off for Plumlee

You may recall that I picked Florida State’s Michael Snaer to be this season’s ACC Player of the Year. When I get it wrong, I get it wrong. But the bulk of the ACC media picked NC State’s C.J. Leslie to win that award and that’s not going to happen, either.  If post-season voting were to take place now, neither would make first-team All-ACC. Plumlee is averaging 18.2 points...

Mason Plumlee’s Reverse Put-Back Dunk Gets Play of the Weekend Honors

How are you going to T Miles up here? Let the kid celebrate a ridiculous play for crying out loud. I looked around and there were some pretty sweet plays this weekend, but I have to give it to Miles. He gives the white man some hope. For those of you that care, Duke wiped out Maryland in this game 84-64.

Mason Plumlee Reverse Dunk Draws Technical, Helps Duke Rout Maryland Top-ranked (for now) Duke lost to No. 25 Miami, 90-63, on Wednesday, but Coach K and the Blue Devils came back with a resounding 84-64 beatdown of Maryland Saturday afternoon. Duke’s Mason Plumlee scored 19 points, but no basket was more emphatic than this one on a follow-up, reverse two-hand jam. Plumlee flexed his muscles — and celebrated the fact that white...

Plumlee throws down reverse follow-up jam

#1 Duke’s 90-63 loss at Miami on Wednesday night was the third-worst in history for a team ranked No. 1 in The Associated Press poll and the worst anyone has seen in 45 years. Early today, Maryland's... Full story at Bob's Blitz ~

Mason Plumlee With Huge Reverse Dunk (Video)

We can safely say that Duke was pretty mad after their 90-63 loss to Miami earlier this week.  Coach K apparently kept the players up until 1:30 am practicing as punishment.  They bounced back today though to beat Maryland by 20 points.  Big man Mason Plumlee had 19 points, and none were better than this reverse put back dunk with three minutes to go in the game.  Very well could...

Sample size throws Mason Plumlee under the bus

The narrative goes like this: Duke center Mason Plumlee - who has been a historically bad free throw shooter in his career - suddenly flipped the switch as a senior and became efficient from the line.  The reason was that he developed a new no-dribble routine at the line, which somehow allowed him to focus and make the freebies. Now, for whatever reason, he's no longer a good...

College Basketball 10 teams that could improve or falter in March

Teams that could falter come tournament time Duke- They’ve been phenomenal so far this season and have already won three games against top five opponents, but I’ve noticed something very disturbing about this team- they have no bench. Their starting line-up displays the perfect blend of youth and experience and has proven they can beat anyone, but as the year goes on players...

Duke's Mason Plumlee flushes alley-oop dunk

I am loathe to ever write anything positive about Duke basketball, but credit needs to be given where it’s due. On Wednesday night senior Mason Plumlee took an alley-oop pass from sophomore guard Quinn Cook and threw it down with authority. The above video shows just how insane a dunk it was. I mean wow. No. 2 Duke ended up beating No. 4 Ohio State 73-68, and Plumlee’s dunk was...
