18-8 Blue, 7:43 remaining in second half: An update on Seth Curry, who got hit in the nose before the half and left the game: We hear he had to get eight stitches, and he hasn't reappeared yet.
Fresh off winning a team championship with the Blue Devils Tuesday, freshman Mallory Cecil has a shot at another national title--an individual one.
It was a race to the finish--for sophomores Ellah Nze and Reka Zsilinszka, that is.
Delayed start? Bitter rivalry?
Last week, head coach Jamie Ashworth said the Blue Devils weren't looking ahead to a potential third meeting with ACC rival Miami, which they bested April 19 in a thrilling ACC Championship final.
After Duke pulled out a 74-69 win over Texas Saturday night, I stuck around the locker room until the media had thinned out and got into a fun exchange with Jon Scheyer while picking his mind about the ridiculous, left-handed behind-the-back heave that put the ball deep in the Longhorns' end of the court.
One aspect of the Blue Devils' contest last night in Atlanta may have been lost in the relief over moving on to the semifinals of the ACC Tournament: The win over Boston College marked Duke's 287th win this decade. That sets an NCAA record for the most wins by any program, in any decade. The previous record was held by Kansas, which tallied 286 wins from 1990-1999.

Back in November, we wrote about the high expectations surrounding Gerald Henderson (who reportedly has a 41-inch vertical leap).
On Tuesday night, both Mike Krzyzewski and Kyle Singler seemed at a loss to explain Duke's initial inability to put up points against N.C. State. After a thrilling win over Georgetown Saturday, the Blue Devils had come out flat, inexplicably, against a Wolfpack squad fresh off an overtime victory over Georgia Tech. Duke's unsightly 29 percent shooting clip in the first half reflected the struggles of normally-reliable sophomores Singler and Nolan Smith, who were a combined 2-for-8 before the break.

NEW YORK — Coming into Sunday’s matchup against Duke, the Red Storm had played seven straight games against top-25 opponents, losing five of their last six. St. John’s head coach Steve Lavin said after the game that although his team was improving, it had been hard to see the improvement the players were making given the quality of their opponents in the second-toughest schedule in the country.
Since Maryland topped Duke March 3rd, the Blue Devils had reeled off 24 straight wins.
Duke got all it could handle when Maryland came to town Sunday night.
In 21 years, Reid Carleton had never journeyed outside the United States. On Monday, though, Carleton left for Rouen, France, where he will represent his country in the Master’U BNP Paribas collegiate tournament against the players from Belgium, France, China and Great Britain.
Two minutes and one second into last night’s game, freshman point guard Kyrie Irving was whistled for his second foul, having harassed a RedHawk player a little too closely near the sideline. Irving later admitted it was a foul he shouldn’t have committed.
Friday night was a celebration of last year’s national championship season—but also the beginning of a new one.
They’re the Other Two.
