Photo: Jahli Okafor back on Duke's campus

Let's be real: Jahlil Okafor went from an extreme culture of winning at Duke to an extreme culture of losing in Philadelphia. So perhaps he was craving some home cooking (figuratively and literally), as he was seen chowing down with Amile Jefferson last night at his former school:#GloryDays

10 Things to Look For in the Final Four

The Final Four features three of the top four Ken Pom teams for the first time since 2012. In the human polls, Kentucky was number 1 the entire season, Duke never left the top 5 and Wisconsin slipped as low as 7th. Michigan State is 15th on Ken Pom. The Spartans were ranked for five weeks this season as well. It’s not like Michigan State is a slouch. On paper, this is one of the...

'Glue guys' who could make a difference in Final Four

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Reading a box score isn't always the best way to measure guard Josh Gasser's impact on a Wisconsin game. Not unless the stat sheet also includes drawing charges, diving for loose balls and careening head-first toward the sideline to save a loose ball. Meet the Badgers' ''glue guy.'' The senior is someone who ''helps us win basketball games, makes plays that a lot...

Vine: Amile Jefferson’s Nasty Dunk Might Be The Dagger For Duke Against Utah

Duke is in the process of pulling away from Utah in the Sweet 16 tonight in Houston. Should the Blue Devils hold on, they’ll face Gonzaga in the Midwest Regional Final on Sunday in a match-up between No. 1 and No. 2 seeds.

Photo: Duke Received An Early Shipment Of The New Kyrie 1 “Duke Blue Devils” Shoes

When Nike announced last week that it was releasing a new pair of Kyrie Irving’s Kyie 1 signature shoes in a Duke colorway, it became likely that the Duke team would be receiving an order of the new kicks. After all, Irving was spectacular in his injury-shortened season in Durham, and while the sneakers made no explicit reference to the Blue Devil program, the connection was obvious...

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.

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...

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...

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.
