Less than a week in, Duke is 3-0—but it has not quite been all cookies and ice cream for the now-No. 7 team in America.
The Blue Devils knocked off Kentucky at Madison Square Garden thanks to the freshman duo of Paolo Banchero and Trevor Keels, pulled away from Army late as Wendell Moore Jr. notched the fifth triple-double in program history and survived a scare against Campbell Saturday night. Mostly positives, but still some room for improvement. With a short break before Tuesday night's date with Gardner-Webb, it was time to dissect this early season stretch.
Cameron Chronicles host Max Rego, along with fellow men's basketball beat writers Jonathan Levitan and Micah Hurewitz, sat down to discuss Duke's start to the campaign, going through an assortment of topics. They talk Coach K rolling out a small-ball lineup Saturday, the emergence of a "Big Three" and more.
