Final Duke 74, Coastal Carolina 49: Things started very slowly for the Blue Devils offensively tonight. But, they were able to heat up a little bit in the second half, and Coastal Carolina never had a chance shooting just 28.6% from the field. Statistically, Kyle Singler was the standout with 23 points and 10 rebounds. John Scheyer, Andre Dawkins, and Miles Plumlee were all in double figures as well. While Dawkins definitely didn't shoot a high percentage tonight, if he can be a solid third or fourth scorer, this Duke team will be better off for it.
Just as they do back home at Jack Coombs Field, Duke rising seniors Alex Hassan, Jeremy Gould, and Michael Ness have been trotting out to take the field together this summer.
No team across the country gained more from its conference tournament last week than Louisville.
Perched atop the bleachers at midfield in Koskinen Stadium Saturday afternoon, I took in my first lacrosse game as Duke beat Loyola 11-9 in a contest that featured four lead changes. With The Chronicle's staff undermanned over break, I was forced into action covering a sport in which my Texas roots failed miserably in providing adequate background exposure.
I will always remember the afternoon when I decided to make sports journalism a pillar of my college experience.
Although the crashing end to Duke’s season Friday night in Greensboro sent shockwaves through the college basketball world, the deficiencies the team showed against a resilient Lehigh squad were foreshadowed throughout the season.
Duke has been a No. 1 seed in the previous two NCAA tournaments, but did not earn a similar distinction entering this year’s postseason. There are many reasons for this drop in seeding, not least the departures of offensive standouts Nolan Smith, Kyle Singler and Kyrie Irving. But the bigger regression has come on the other end of the floor, as this year’s team has also failed to achieve the level of defensive prowess typical of Duke teams past.
Although Austin Rivers’ buzzer beater instantly became a part of Duke-North Carolina lore Wednesday night, the real fiber of the game was the battle between two contrasting styles. The Blue Devils pulled out the 85-84 comeback win as their perimeter-oriented offense endured against the Tar Heels’ interior attack.
At the surface, Duke’s 83-76 non-conference victory over St. John’s would appear to be a satisfactory result. However, after seeing a 16-point halftime lead that ballooned to 22 points early in the second half become a four-point contest in the game’s waning moments, head coach Mike Krzyzewski was disgusted with his team’s effort, especially on the defensive end of the court.
During their shellacking at the hands of Ohio State, at times the Blue Devils looked unorganized and unsure of their specific roles within the offense. The confusion and lack of cohesion resulted in frequent one-on-one play from Austin Rivers and an uncharacteristically high number of entry passes into the post to let Mason Plumlee play with his back to the basket. The end result was a blowout loss in Columbus.
When two of the nation’s top five teams take the court for tonight’s battle in Columbus, Ohio, the eyes of the college basketball world will be on Ohio State’s Jared Sullinger and William Buford. But the duo, which has combined to score 36.5 points per game for the Buckeyes this season, gets substantial assistance from a man working in the shadows, the Ohio State video coordinator—former Duke point guard Greg Paulus.
Duke will make the short trip to Chapel Hill this weekend to close out the season with its annual rivalry game against North Carolina. The Blue Devils will be looking to snap a six-game losing streak and pick up just their second conference win—with the other coming over two months ago in the ACC opener against Boston College.
As he addressed the crowd in a postgame ceremony recognizing his achievement as the winningest NCAA Division I men's basketball coach in history Friday night, head coach Mike Krzyzewski quipped that at halftime of his team’s 82-69 victory over Davidson, he was not sure that there was going to be a celebration.
A sentiment that seems to be growing in popularity with students and alumni alike is that head coach David Cutcliffe should be on the hot seat. The ignorance of such commentary not only makes me furious but is also a train of thought I would bet has never crossed the mind of any senior university official.
November is the month that college football’s top teams traditionally spend with their eyes on capturing a conference title, or at the least securing an invitation to a high-profile bowl game. Everything that happens up until the calendar is flipped for the last month of the regular season goes out the window—it’s a new season.
