It was a great week to be a member of the Duke basketball team as the Blue Devils took on two of the ACC’s weaker teams in Virginia Tech and Boston College. The lower level of competition allowed Mike Krzyzewski to play his full stable of players and the freshmen took advantage by having some […]
Ryan Kelly is just like every other senior, high school or college, in that he wants to play in his last home game. The only difference is Kelly has a lot of work ahead of him before he can achieve that goal due to a foot injury he suffered back in early January.
A back-and-forth first four minutes made it look like Duke was going to be in for another battle with ACC foe Boston College, but the Blue Devils made quick work of that notion by rattling off separate runs of 12-0 and 12-2 to earn a 51-27 lead at the break. Career days from Rasheed Sulaimon […]
Virginia Tech jumped out to a 4-0 lead and that was where the game may as well have ended for the Hokies. Duke went on an 11-0 run, eventually stretching the lead to 48-28 at the half on their way to an impressive 88-56 dismantling of the lowly Hokies.

The greatest rivalry in college basketball certainly felt like it on Wednesday night as Duke and North Carolina battled for 40 minutes before the No. 2 Blue Devils managed to pull just far enough ahead to secure the victory. Quinn Cook and Mason Plumlee netted 18 points apiece to lead Duke past their rivals, 73-68.
The fine folks from Duke have done it again, producing a wonderful look at some under-the-radar numbers ahead of Wednesday night’s marquee matchup with North Carolina. The game notes this week give an inside look at what has made this Duke team so good and where they are historically both in general and against North […]
North Carolina was already the perceived underdog heading into Wednesday’s rivalry game with Duke at Cameron Indoor Stadium. Those odds took another hit on Tuesday when it was reported that center Joel James would miss the game with an apparent concussion, per Roy Williams at his press conference.
He's a hard guy to miss. Jay Murphy stands 6-foot-9 and dwarfs all the dedicated Boston College fans whose hands he shakes as he finds his way to his courtside seat at Conte Forum. An Eagle legend, today is a special day for the Hall of Famer. Today his son, Alex, has come home.
