CLEMSON, S.C.—When a team shoots outshoots its opposition 47% to 37% and dominates the interior 36 paint points to 22, one may expect the result to be a comfortable, lopsided victory. However, the reality Sunday afternoon in Clemson for the Blue Devil’s was a far more exhilarating crossing of the finish line. Up nine, with two minutes remaining in the game, the hare relaxed early and began snoozing. Fortunately for Duke, in this instance, they woke up in time to stop the tortoise from completing a demoralizing comeback and stunning upset.
Every team has an element that defines it and typically, alongside it, a glue that embodies that element. A glue that keeps the foundation strong and allows every division to be maximized. For Duke, that glue is junior transfer Celeste Taylor.
Another week of college basketball is in the rear view, meaning that it's time for another installment of the Blue Zone's thoughts on the latest AP Poll. This week, Duke's three wins held them in place as the No. 2 team in the nation as teams around the country gear up for conference play.
Duke continued its scorching hot start to the season with an emphatic 91-75 win at home against Troy to push the team to 6-0. This was an evening to remember for both freshman Shayeann Day-Wilson and junior Celeste Taylor. The former of which scored a career-high 26 points on 8-of-10 shooting from three, marking a new career-high and tying a Duke single-game record for 3-pointers made. Taylor, on the other hand, recorded season-highs in points, 3-pointers, rebounds and steals, dropping 24 points and 11 rebounds and six steals. To put it simply, Duke’s stars shined bright.

The NBA is finally back in action starting Tuesday evening, and before tipoff, the Blue Zone is here to preview a few former Blue Devils' prospects in the association this upcoming season:
So, what does this mean for Duke, a team that has not been ranked since 2018 nor beaten a ranked opponent since 2016? It means, shockingly, that it finally has a chance to not only crack the Top 25 but to return to the ACC Championship Game for the first time since 2013.
