The Blue Devils head to Chapel Hill Sunday afternoon for a vital rivalry clash against North Carolina, looking for both a season sweep and a boost in seeding for the ACC tournament. The Chronicle's beat writers are here to offer their predictions of how Duke will fare:
Duke welcomes hometown rival North Carolina to Cameron Indoor Stadium Sunday afternoon for their first showdown of the season. Before the 2 p.m. tipoff, The Chronicle’s beat writers are here to offer their predictions about how the Blue Devils will fare:
PITTSBURGH—Good teams win big on occasions, but great teams are able to dominate their opponents time and time again.
When they say defense wins championships, there’s no better case study in support of that theory than Duke’s 63-46 win against No. 14 Virginia Tech Thursday night at Cameron Indoor Stadium.
Coming off a road victory against Georgia Thursday night, Duke returns to Cameron Indoor Stadium Sunday afternoon to take on what might be its most formidable opponent yet: No. 1 South Carolina. The Chronicle’s womens’ basketball beat writers are here with their predictions for the marquee matchup:
Following a two-game losing streak, the Blue Devils were eager to get back in the win column with a dominant showing against N.C. Central, and dominant they were. They played with a sense of urgency and purpose, en route to a 93-45 win at Cameron Indoor Stadium Sunday afternoon.
As the saying goes, if you live by the three you die by the three. Although it is a bit extreme of a label to plaster onto the ninth-ranked Blue Devils at this point in the year while the season is still young, it should serve as a traffic sign of a road to traverse with caution.
In the final matchup of the Blue Devil Challenge, No. 9 Duke has struggled to get things going against a resilient Southern Indiana squad. With 20 minutes behind them at Cameron Indoor Stadium, the Blue Devils trail the Screaming Eagles 35-31:
It was Education Day for Durham’s finest, and in their home debut, the Blue Devils put on a spectacular show that the passionate kids watching in awe will not be forgetting any time soon.
Ahead of the Blue Devils’ Monday season tipoff, The Chronicle’s beat writers are here to predict Duke’s record, team MVP, best win and more:
On Monday night, No. 3-seed Duke hosts one last game inside Cameron Indoor Stadium this season, this one against No. 6-seed Colorado for the right to head to Seattle for the NCAA tournament's Sweet 16. With the stakes high as ever in Durham, The Chronicle's beat writers make their predictions.
Balance is the antithesis to chaos. When it is maintained the opportunity to thrive remains. However, when it is tipped or shattered all together, everything is put into shambles.
On Saturday evening, Duke makes its return to the NCAA tournament with a Round of 64 matchup at home against No. 14-seed Iona. Before tipoff at 9:30 p.m., The Chronicle's beat writers predict whether the Blue Devils' season will stretch to Monday.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.—The toughness of a giant is not measured by how they beat up on foes beneath them, but rather how they withstand the blows of those hungry to knock them off. The Blue Devils demonstrated that in their nail-biting 56-52 win against an intense Virginia team to move one win closer to an ACC title.
There is a point at which greatness transcends great and becomes something the likes of which we have seldom seen before. It is no longer simply “another,” but one that stands alone in history. No. 9 Duke, in its milestone 1,000th win Thursday evening at Boston College, has crossed that point with a defense that has become one of the best the program has ever produced.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla.—There is the good, the bad and the ugly, but Sunday afternoon's game in the Donald L. Tucker Civic Center was all ugly for the 16th-ranked Blue Devils in their 70-57 loss against No. 24 Florida State.
With the wind of an 11-game winning streak in their sails, the 13th-ranked Blue Devils head behind enemy lines Thursday evening for an all-important ACC matchup at No. 17 North Carolina. Before the 8 p.m. tipoff, our beat writers make their predictions.
Before every game this season, our football beat writers predict whether the Blue Devils will pick up a win in their weekly matchup and keep track of their records throughout the year. On Wednesday, Duke has one last matchup: a Military Bowl showdown against UCF in Annapolis, Md., at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.
Depth is the name of the game, and the Blue Devils have plenty of it. Just 11 games into their 2022-23 campaign, seven different players have led the team in scoring. Of course, they still have top options in Celeste Taylor and Elizabeth Balogun, who average double-digit points and have led the team in scoring two and four times, respectively. However, on top of Duke’s senior leaders, everyone else is getting their moments to shine as well. Sunday's 70-48 win over Florida Gulf Coast was the sixth time this season that at least three players have gotten to double figures, and 10 different players have already had double-digit outings.
Duke’s regular-season finale against Wake Forest was a heavyweight bout resembling that of a boxing match. There was a certain suspenseful atmosphere that lingered throughout the whole game, heightened by the back-and-forth push. No team ever had complete momentum, as a crushing blow that left one of them stumbling would simply be countered with a haymaker by the other. There was still, however, this sensation that a knockout punch could come at any moment.
