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. Head coach Mike Krzyzewski has intelligently opted for a smaller lineup than he has typically had in the past in order to increase his team’s offensive efficiency. Unfortunately, by having...

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...

ACC Bubble Analysis for 2/23

ACC basketball is fun to watch again. Elite Teams, bubble madness, Hall of Fame Coaches battling, tons of media coverage… It’s what John Swofford always dreamed of. Now about those bubble teams… In my ranking system, any RPI top (100) win is a good win and any RPI top (50) obviously worth more.

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...

No. 10 Duke back to basics with defensive win over No. 22 Michigan

DURHAM, N.C. -- No. 10 Duke (7-2) finally got a win over a ranked team in its fourth try this year, knocking off No. 22 Michigan (5-3) by a 79-69 score. And it wasn't as simple as getting the win, although that was nice too. The Blue Devils grew as a team in the win, which wasn't always a pretty one. 1. Duke's defense might just come around after all. It was jarring to...

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.
