Mistakes send No. 25 Duke to 45-20 loss to UNC

Jahlil Okafor headlines #3 Duke Blue Devils vs #19 Michigan St

Jahlil Okafor will give the Duke Blue Devils a very different look this year. They will be a team that runs their offense from the inside-out as they will go through Okafor. He is the best big man, a true post player, a real inside presence that Coach K. has had in a very long time. He’s not a big that will be buried in the corner to shoot baseline jumpers like Jabari Parker sometimes...

After Slow Start Duke Beats Down Fairfield 109-59, Winslow Scores 18

Duke picks up the win 109 to 59 on short rest against Fairfield. This is exactly the type of early scheduling that should make this team better in March. Duke was ahead at the half by 14 but by all accounts wasn’t playing it’s best on either end. Obviously Duke was going to win the game but, it gave Coach K something to lay into his team about – and as expected they responded...

After Duke’s annual shootout with Pittsburgh, one question came to my mind: Can this experienced Duke team compete with Florida State in the ACC Championship Game? Though their defense looked like Swiss cheese against the Panthers Saturday, the Blue Devils gave a performance that appeared to be a blip on the radar, at least if their season is evaluated in full. Pitt just seems...
