'A Surreal Feeling': 14-seed Mercer stuns Duke

RALEIGH, N.C. -- According to Ken Pomeroy, 14-seed Mercer is the fifth-most experienced team in the country. Those are always some of the sexier upset picks when filling out NCAA Tournament brackets -- after all, experienced teams are often facing more talented (but younger) opponents. And certainly, no one thought a third-seeded Duke team (26-9) with NBA-level talent on its roster...

Quinn Cook breaks Mercer’s Kevin Canevari’s ankles (GIF)

Mercer senior guard Kevin Canevari appeared in his first ever NCAA Tournament game on Friday, and Duke’s Quinn Cook did not exactly extend a warm welcome. Canevari got his ankles shattered less than 10 minutes into the first half. Oftentimes when a player gets his ankles broken, it is excusable and happens among a sea […]

Notebook: Duke, Virginia enter NCAA tourney with high expectations

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Last year during the NCAA Tournament, Duke was led by an experienced core of seniors in Mason Plumlee, Seth Curry and Ryan Kelly and had as good a chance to get to the Final Four as any other team. The only question mark was its point guard, Quinn Cook, who had a rough go of things in Indianapolis in the third round with 12 points in two games on 3-of-16 shooting...

Duke basketball's backcourt by committee

The Blue Devils went down to Georgia Tuesday and secured another crucial ACC win, but one thing they haven't secured is a starting lineup. In the past eight games, guards Quinn Cook and Rasheed Sulaimon have split Duke's fifth starting spot right down the middle—four games apiece. The Blue Devil rotation has remained pretty steady otherwise; Tyler Thornton, Rodney Hood...

Duke-UNC: Less hype, same intensity

DURHAM, N.C. -- Nowadays, we're always obsessed with what's new. What's the new best thing ever? What can supplant the thing we previously thought was the best thing ever? Unless we really like what the best thing ever used to be, of course.  And in college basketball, the best thing ever used to be -- and, one might argue, still is -- the Duke-Carolina rivalry.  Fans...

Once again, the Blue Devils had a chance to tie at the buzzer — or win this time — but Quinn Cook’s last-ditch shot came up off of the mark: After Duke’s Rasheed Sulaimon hit a ridiculous buzzer-beater three to send the game into overtime...

Duke Knocks off FSU 78-56

There were a lot of things that clearly were not going right for No. 18 Duke on Saturday. Rodney Hood was unable to start due to illness, Quinn Cook looked a bit gimpy due to some injury and the Blue Devils were shooting woefully from the floor for most of the game. To make matters worse, Duke who has been widely rumored to be undersized all year, was going up against a big size...

Why Duke Blue Devils can still win the ACC

The Duke Blue Devils lost a hard game on Saturday against Notre Dame.  This is a big blow to their chances to win the ACC, because you can assume that they will lose at least two more games during the ACC season.  That is with them beating every team that they will be favored for the rest of the season.  Even if they do lose three or four games in ACC play they can still win the...
