Outside thunder wakes up ACC foes

(01/24/05 5:00am)

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — While the Northeast region experienced a snowy blizzard Saturday night, J.J. Redick heated up the Deep South in one of the most impressive shooting exhibitions in recent ACC history. Redick hit a career-high eight three-pointers on his way to a season-high 31 points in a dominating 88-56 win for the men’s basketball team (15-0, 5-0 in the ACC) over Florida State (10-9, 2-4).

Blue Devil guards outshoot Miami

(01/20/05 5:00am)

CORAL GABLES, Fla. — With 17:36 remaining in the second-half, Duke junior J.J. Redick collected the ball from senior Daniel Ewing and squared up to the basket, toeing the three-point line. With all eyes on the most dangerous outside shooter in college basketball, Ewing unassumingly cut to the hoop, hidden from the Miami defense. Noticing his fellow co-captain, Redick lofted the ball towards the goal. Ewing extended his athletic frame—then stretched even further to catch the high pass nearly two feet above the basket to slam the ball through the net.

Support resilient Blue Devils

With one game to go, the football team has compiled eight wins and 38 losses in my time at Duke. This means the seniors on this football team lost 30 more games than they won, and fifth-year seniors lost 50 games before they won nine. Despite these facts, I encourage everyone to show up early for Saturday’s game against North Carolina to support a group of young men who never gave up even in face of the greatest adversity.

Leg injury will sideline Aguanno

(11/02/04 5:00am)

In his weekly press conference, head coach Ted Roof announced that senior co-captain Giuseppe Aguanno will miss Saturday’s game against Florida State due to injury. Aguanno leads the Blue Devils with 67 tackles this season and he is now the third defensive captain to miss playing time due to injury this season. The 6-foot-1, 240-pound linebacker suffered a leg injury in the fourth quarter of Duke’s 24-22 loss to Wake Forest last Saturday.

Scare-seekers head into the woods

(10/29/04 4:00am)

GREENSBORO — As local legend goes, angry spirits haunted the city of Greensboro during the Great Depression. Many people died from despair and lack of food and supplies as they faced the worst economy in the nation’s history. Few could even afford proper burials for the dead. The spirits, bitter about their deaths and lack of graves, tormented residents of Greensboro at all hours of the day, stealing their valuables and disrupting their sleep patterns. The frightening era had no end in sight until Priest Eddie Howie McMillian came along.

Games football can win

Freshman running back Justin Boyle’s 83-yard touchdown burst in the waning moments of Duke’s 28-10 win over The Citadel can be, metaphorically speaking, interpreted in two different ways. For optimists, the true freshman’s run could be sign that the Blue Devils are finally running away from their recent struggles. For others, Boyle’s head-first scamper could symbolize Duke’s dive into the buzzsaw that is its remaining schedule.
