Here’s A Selfie From Duke Basketball’s Team Dinner In New York City

No. 5 Duke is in New York tonight in advance of tomorrow afternoon’s meeting with St. John’s at Madison Square Garden. A win over the Red Storm would give Blue Devil head coach Mike Krzyzewski his 1,000th-career victory and make him the first men’s college basketball coach to reach that plateau. Judging by this group selfie taken by junior forward Amile Jefferson, the Blue...

Court Vision: No. 5 Duke gets back on track with a win over Pitt

DURHAM, N.C. -- No. 5 Duke (16-2, 4-2 ACC) got head coach Mike Krzyzewski to win No. 999, a win away from 1,000 for his career with a 79-65 win over Pittsburgh (13-6, 3-3). But that wasn't as important as getting their second straight win, and perhaps starting another home winning streak after their recent one was snapped at the hands of Miami. All that is arbitrary, though -- it...

Duke in the Zone, Takes Down Louisville 63-52

Not sure any team needed a win like this Duke team did and thank goodness they got it in a 63-52 win over Louisville. Duke got this win in a very non-Duke fashion, using a zone…yup, the 2-3 zone was utilized against a poor shooting Louisville team and minus some poor play in the waning moments of the game Duke played pretty well defensively. Coach K expected Duke to have...

What We Learned from Duke’s Win at Louisville

Duke’s 63-52 victory at Louisville on Saturday taught us a whole lot about both squads. It also helped Virginia get a little more breathing room now that Louisville and Duke each have a pair of ACC losses.

Court Vision: No. 4 Duke suffers second straight defeat to Miami

DURHAM, N.C. -- No. 4 Duke (14-2, 2-2) did not just have their 41-game winning streak in Cameron Indoor Stadium snapped -- it was broken in half and splintered by a final score of 90-74 by Miami (12-4, 2-1). Duke hasn't lost consecutive regular-season games since 2009, which is an absurd stat in its own right, and a big reason why head coach Mike Krzyzewski is one of the best in...

Canes Pull Off Shock Upset at No. 4 Duke

By Austin Sapin A 41-game home winning streak.  The No. 4 team in the nation. Nine McDonald’s All-Americans. All of these can describe the No. 4 Duke Blue Devils, (14-2, 2-2 ACC) but not the winners of Tuesday night’s matchup in Cameron Indoor Stadium. As the Miami Hurricanes (12-4, 2-1 ACC) took the floor against Coach K and his all-stars, the odds were stacked in the home...

Duke dispatches Wofford 84-55

Duke beats a scrappy and talented Wofford team 84 to 55 but as most of these games against  probably first round NCAA opponents the final score never indicates what actually occurred in the game. Duke would run away with the game in the final 10 minutes but Wofford did a very good job of keeping this game close. Jahlil Okafor was a beast for Duke scoring 20 points on 11 of...

Takeaways from Duke's win over UConn

A couple of takeaways from last night: Tyus Jones & Amile Jefferson will always find ways to impact the game.Tyus may not always be on with his shot but what he does do is force the issue, Jones was 9-10 from the free throw line. That is a huge stat and shows that with the ball in his hands even in a low scoring game he will find a way. Amile is a guy that is going to fight...

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...

One of the only teams in the country that may be more talented from top to bottom is John Calipari’s Kentucky team. Clearly someone at ESPN got the two blue blood programs mixed...
