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.

Kyrie Irving wowed Duke fans for just 11 games during his lone year in Durham and he has continued that level of play in NBA. The Cleveland Cavaliers’ point guard made a statement on Saturday night by posting a 23-point round en route to a win in the 2013 Three-point Shooting Contest.
With 2.8 seconds left, Quinn Cook ran up court and heaved up a three pointer. From the looks of it, I thought there was going to be devastation at College Park, but Maryland held on to finish off the upset.

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.
