Duke Baseball's Clean Slate

(04/26/06 4:00am)

Last August, Duke's baseball team was as dirty as a shortstop's jersey buried in the corner of its disheveled locker room. In walked Sean McNally, the clean-cut, 33-year-old head coach who had replaced the ousted Bill Hillier just a month earlier, barking orders at one of nine players he would soon let go. He had no choice but to wipe clean the walls of the locker room-and an undisciplined program marred by scandal.

The List

(04/24/06 4:00am)

No matter how good something may be, I'm a person who always thinks it can be better. I'll preface the list by saying that I have thoroughly enjoyed most of my experience here and could have just as easily written a list of things I like about Duke. But here you go-President Brodhead, undergraduates and professors alike-here is my list of things I'd change about Duke.

Victims of their own success

(03/08/06 5:00am)

This is a University of two Dukes. For the first, the letter with "congratulations" at the top and the signature of Dean of Admissions Christoph Guttentag on the bottom is a means to an end. In just more than four years, they will be sailing out of Duke, stopping to pick up a second important piece of paper-a diploma-as they finally let out a giant sigh of relief and fling their mortarboards into the air.

Redick's shooting lifts Duke into final

(03/12/05 5:00am)

WASHINGTON -- After Friday's win over Virginia, J.J. Redick said it was tough adjusting to the rims at the MCI Center. Saturday he seemed to have it all figured out. Duke's top option hit 11-of-16 shots and scored 35 points, never disappearing from the offense. A day after he went just 4-for-17 from the field and had to rely on others to carry the load, Redick was there every time N.C. State tried to make a run. "I didn't dwell on it last night," Redick said. "I put it behind me, and went out there today and played with confidence." The third-seeded Blue Devils advanced to their eighth consecutive ACC Tournament final with a 76-69 victory Saturday. Will Bynum equaled Redick's 35 points as Georgia Tech knocked off North Carolina earlier in the afternoon despite a late charge by Rashad McCants that almost saw the Tar Heels pull off their second comeback in as many days.
