Just over a month ago, I sat in Koskinen Stadium covering a seemingly trivial nonconference women’s lacrosse game between Duke and East Carolina. It was the week of Coach K’s now-infamous final game in Cameron Indoor Stadium, and so women’s lacrosse was probably the last thing on anyone’s mind.
I started watching sports regularly in 2009. My dad had season tickets to the Yankees, and that year he started bringing me to games consistently.
With Duke’s season officially in the books, the Blue Zone breaks down each player's season, including comparisons to their preseason projections.

It’s finally here: Duke and North Carolina, in the Final Four, for all the marbles. Now, at this point in head coach Mike Krzyzewski’s farewell season, most sports fans have likely selected one side of the aisle—either you’re rooting for the storybook ending or you’re praying someone stops it in its tracks. But if you still need something else to keep you interested, the Blue Zone’s got you covered with some can’t-miss prop bets:
The stakes have never been higher for No. 2-seed Duke and No. 8-seed North Carolina, with the two sides facing off Saturday in the Final Four in New Orleans for the first time in NCAA tournament history. With a spot in the national championship game on the line, here's who our beats predict will come out on top.
Each March brings a new breakout star for every college basketball team, especially the ones that make it deep in the NCAA tournament.
No. 2-seed Duke comes in as a four-point favorite in this Elite Eight matchup against No. 4-seed Arkansas in San Francisco. At the end of this one, the winner at Chase Center will come away with a spot in the Final Four in New Orleans and a chance at putting their team in the college basketball record books.
Duke will face off against Texas Tech at 9:30 p.m. at Chase Center in San Francisco, and given the way these two teams match up and the one-point spread in favor of the Red Raiders, all signs point to a nail-biter. Let's see who our beats pick to move on to the Elite Eight.
GREENVILLE, S.C.—With five minutes left in the game and Michigan State ahead 70-65, reality finally began to set in.
No. 2-seed Duke enters its Round of 32 matchup as 6.5-point a favorite but has a tough draw against No. 7-seed Michigan State.

Let's take a look at who our beats think will be moving on to the Sweet Sixteen.
GREENVILLE, S.C.—Coming off a disappointing conclusion to both the regular season and ACC tournament, it was essential that the Blue Devils set the tone of the NCAA tournament early.
No. 2-seed Duke has its first game of the NCAA tournament Friday against No. 15-seed Cal State Fullerton. The Blue Devils come in as 18.5-point favorites leading up to their 7:10 p.m. tipoff against the Titans in Greenville, S.C.
After an exciting start to the NCAA men's basketball tournament already, the Round of 64 finally starts Thursday. Our men's basketball beats opened up their brackets and walked through their picks. Check out how far they have Duke going and who they have cutting down the nets in New Orleans here.
When I visited Duke after getting accepted as a high school senior, the first building I walked into was the Duke Basketball Museum & Hall of Fame. Sports—specifically basketball—served as one of the main draws of the school to me, so it seemed like a natural place to start.
Right now, it feels like the end of the world for Duke men’s basketball.
Saturday is Coach K's final dance in Cameron Indoor Stadium. And it's against North Carolina. No further introduction.
“Cra-zy towel guy! Cra-zy towel guy!”
On the surface, No. 7 Duke’s 19-9 win against East Carolina might appear like yet another inconsequential nonconference blowout, the sixth straight in what has been a dominant start to the season for the Blue Devils.
On Feb. 20, Duke men’s basketball’s official Twitter account posted a tweet with the following caption: “Coach K has more Duke dubs than all other past Blue Devil coaches combined #GoatFacts.”
SYRACUSE, N.Y.—On paper, Duke’s win Saturday against Syracuse looked like utter domination from start to finish.
