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 […]
Sorry for those of you who spent your Monday without the Rookie Report, but now that the internet issues have been sorted out we can get back to sorting out Duke’s freshman ballers. This was another up and down week for the Blue Devils as they scored a solid win over rival North Carolina before […]
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.
The Duke Blue Devils once again finished a week of ACC basketball with a 2-0 record. That’s the good news. The bad news? After winning a statement game against N.C. State on Thursday, the Blue Devils laid a bit of an egg on the road at Boston College for one of the weirder two-game stretches […]
Alex Murphy has been in and out. Hot and Cold. Here and there. The only constants for Murphy this season have been his name and the No. 12 he puts on every day.
Duke scored two solid wins this week behind the play of their two senior stars, Mason Plumlee and Seth Curry. Plumlee was a relative non-factor against Florida State, but his 32 points against Wake Forest keyed the victory. Curry, on the other hand, scored 21 points in both games while shooting 6-of-13 from three-point range.
In this week’s edition of the Duke Basketball Rookie Report, we actually get a two-week sample size to look at three games worth of stats to pour over and decide who this week’s top-ranked newcomer should be. All four have established themselves as members of the rotation in the wake of Ryan Kelly‘s injury and […]
Wednesday night in Miami was nothing short of a devastating, demoralizing loss. Duke looked as though they had no interest in playing basketball, let alone winning the game, save a few fun moments from Alex Murphy and Amile Jefferson. In the aftermath of this loss, fans are forced to wonder if Ryan Kelly‘s loss will […]
There really isn’t much to say about the effort Duke put forward against Miami on Wednesday night. After regaining the No. 1 ranking and getting almost a whole week of rest, the Blue Devils came out flatter than flat while the Hurricanes came out flying and hitting everything en route to a 90-63 blowout win.
This past week was an interesting one for Duke basketball’s fans and players. On the one hand, the Blue Devils took care of business at Clemson, but on the other they lost a key road game to N.C. State. They also saw an encouraging game from Amile Jefferson, but only because Ryan Kelly is injured.
