Duke Slugs it Out With UConn, wins 66-56

Duke grits out a tough game against UCONN and gets the win 66-56. Duke played a very hungry and pesky UCONN team lead by Ryan Boatright who scored 22 of this teams 56 points. Boatright was also responsible for 4 steals and kept Duke off-balance on both ends of the floor. Duke turned the ball over 19 times and while some were unforced most were attributable to a very wily UCONN...

UConn-Duke Preview

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) During its recent rise to relevance, Duke has taken care of a bunch of first-in-a-long-time things. Except one: Win a bowl game.

Duke plays poorly versus Elon; Was it rust?

Duke hadn’t played in 11 days before their match up against Elon last night, and I heard a lot of talk about rust after the 75-62 victory. Besides turnovers, though, the stats from the game might not speak to rust as much as expected. Many point to Duke’s shoddy three point percentage, and I agree that many of the shots were wide open. But three pointers are fickle, and...

Sluggish Duke Pushes By Elon 75-62

Not too surprisingly Duke came out completely rusty and flat versus Elon but managed to get the win 75-62. Duke was sloppy in all phases of the game, turning the ball over 17 times, shooting under 20% from 3 point range and only 52% from the foul line. Duke did get a herculean and record-setting performance from freshmen Jahlil Okafor (playing on his 19th birthday) who scored...

Respect is due for Duke's Upperclassmen

Before the season started, I wrote a long feature article documenting how the Duke program has changed and adjusted, first to the early entry players, and then once again when the one and done rule came into effect. As far as determining what it takes to succeed as a team with the one and done types, I concluded that it was important to have developed upperclassmen who could...

The Road Ahead In The ACC: Can Duke play with Florida State?

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...
