Video: Marshall Plumlee Visits Virginia Tech Fan At Duke Children’s Hospital

When Duke center Marshall Plumlee heard that there was a young college basketball fan — who we’re pretty sure is named Pierce — at Duke Children’s Hospital, he decided to pay him a visit. The only problem: Pierce was not a Duke fan. Rather, Plumlee found out that he supports the Blue Devils’ ACC rival, Virginia Tech. In a video put out by Duke basketball, Plumlee spent...

Marshall Plumlee shows some improvement for Duke Basketball

Marshall Plumlee shows some improvement for Duke BasketballVery early in the season it became painfully apparent that this year’s Duke Basketball team lacked any form of a low post presence.

Krzyzewski on Marshall Plumlee: ‘He’ll have a more and more prominent role’

After logging a career-high in minutes and blocks and collecting at least five rebounds for just the third time in his career, Marshall Plumlee was asked if the Syracuse game, specifically the first half, was his finest collegiate moment to date. “I don’t know, I guess that’s up for viewer’s discretion,” he said. “I’m proud of it.” As well he should be, as Plumlee...

Duke's win over FSU a study in tenacity, rebounding

DURHAM, N.C. -- For this Duke team to reach the kinds of heights it wants to reach, it must contend with the big boys in the ACC. And that's intended both literally and figuratively. No. 18 Duke (16-4, 5-2 ACC) doesn't have a lot of size -- at least, not a lot of traditional size, and not a lot of size that it uses very often. In some of Duke's losses this year -- and...

DURHAM, N.C. -- No. 10 Duke (7-2) finally got a win over a ranked team in its third try this season, knocking off No. 22 Michigan (5-3) by a 79-69 score.

Jefferson Bulking Up

With the departure of big men Mason Plumlee and Ryan Kelly, Duke will rely on Josh Hairston, Marshall Plumlee and Amile Jefferson in the post. Thing is, Hairston, while an excellent role player, is 6-7 and limited as a post player, Plumlee is still in a boot following foot surgery and Jefferson weighed 195 as a freshman and was punished by bigger, stronger opponents.
