If history was any indication, the football team would be happy to face Georgia Tech this Saturday in Atlanta. After consecutive games against arguably the top two teams in the ACC, facing the Yellow Jackets (2-1, 1-0 in the ACC) would prove an easier target to overcome. An easier target, that is, if history was any indication.
When a team earns a split against two of the top 10 teams in the country, it is usually satisfied with the effort. Not necessarily so for the women's soccer team this weekend.
A win is a win.
Spencer Romine hears what people say about the football team, he just doesn't pay much attention to them.
Sometimes, it's the little things that make a difference in a basketball game. Things like it being Senior Day. Or the fact that the two teams have possibly the greatest rivalry in college hoops. Or even 9,314 excited fans screaming at the top of their lungs as the other teams try to shoot free throws.
The men's golf team traveled south Monday for the Puerto Rico Classic and took last of 15 teams. The poor finish was not necessarily indicative of things to come for Duke, since much of the team did not make the trip.
The Duke wrestlers made a common mistake on Friday. In their eagerness to wrestle Atlantic Coast Conference opponent North Carolina State on Tuesday, they looked past the match in front of them. And while the Blue Devils (6-6) were looking ahead, Division II Gardner-Webb wrestled tough for a 28-20 win.
This year's women's track team has a new look to it. This look comes not from different uniforms or a team hairstyle, but rather from an influx of strong freshmen runners. Strong performances by these newer members have created a level of competitiveness rarely seen on Duke's track.
And now you know.
It was a tale of two halves on Friday night. In the first, Florida State battled the Duke women's basketball team every step of the way. In the second, Duke exploded, putting up 56 points en route to a 96-76 victory.
WOmegahen cheering for the No. 1 Blue Devils in Wednesday night's matchup against unranked Villanova, keep one thing in mind. The Villanova Wildcats are no strangers to games against the nation's top-ranked team. And often enough, they win.
The men's and women's swim teams both dropped their fourth meet in a row on Saturday, losing to UNC-Wilmington. The Seahawks won 17 of 26 events to defeat the Duke men, 135.5-115.5, and the women, 144.5-86.5.
The Cameron Crazies were treated to not one but two basketball games Thursday night. One was better known as "the first half," while the other went by the title of-you guessed it-"the second half."
The Maryland Terrapins have their work cut out for them. With a team that, in other years or other conferences, might be rated as a number-one or number-two pick, the Terps settle for a distant preseason fourth in the Atlantic Coast Conference, behind three Final Four hopefuls. To force its way into the upper echelon of the conference, Maryland will have to pool its talent and pull a few rabbits out of hats.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - In the football team's 13-10 loss to Virginia on Saturday, the defense made play after play in keeping Duke close to the heavily-favored Cavaliers.
You have to hand it to the men's soccer team. Every so often, it hands in an edge-of-your-seat nail-biter, waiting until the final minutes to decide the outcome, as beautifully as if it had been scripted that way all along.
Duke struggled last week against a weak Maryland program. It stands to reason, then, that the Blue Devils would be hoping for a bye week on their schedule, or perhaps a third contest against a military academy. That's not what they're going to get, though-Duke faces No. 4 Florida State on Saturday. And the players and coaches couldn't be happier.
The women's cross country team went the distance this weekend, traveling to two separate meets in different areas of the country. Seven runners traveled to South Bend, Ind., on Friday for the Notre Dame Invitational, while seven headed down the road to Campbell on Saturday.
