Postgame: An underwhelming performance today from the typically strong Duke passing game was overshadowed by a surprisingly strong performance from the running game. Official statistics from today's game are not yet available, but both squads had players near 100 yards on the ground. For the White team, Josh Snead posted (unofficially) 99 yards on nine carries, just one Matt Daniels-touchdown-saving-tackle away from becoming the first true freshman since 1945 to rush for 100 yards in Duke's Spring Game. On the Blue side, Desmond Scott and Brandon Connette both put forth strong rushing performances, while both Connette and Sean Schroeder posted completion percentages well below 50% on the game.
"Those were like signature plays for us. You get a rebound, you kick it out, you shoot a three and the world is--you know, we start skipping down the yellow brick road." -Head Coach Mike Krzyzewski, on Duke's offensive rebounding performance against the Hokies.
Postgame: Singler, Scheyer and Smith combine for 63 of Duke's 67 points. Singler posts a double-double with 25 points and 10 rebounds. Brian Zoubek was a force on the glass all night, finishing with 16 rebounds--eight of which came on the offensive glass. Zoubek also had the play of the game, as his three point play midway through the second half keyed the Blue Devils' 13-4 run that separated them from the Hokies for good.
FINAL: Kansas 44, Duke 16: Some quick stats here at the end of the game. The Blue Devils finished 4-for-18 on 3rd downs, but still amassed 394 yards of total offense, 299 in the air and 95 on the ground. Todd Reesing of Kansas was 28-of-41 for 338 yards and 3 touchdowns, carrying the ball 8 times for 51 yards. Thaddeus Lewis led Duke with 184 yards, 16 completions on 27 attempts, as well as 2 interceptions.

In a scene eerily familiar to a certain Big East Tournament, the madness of one night spilled into the next morning as the first round of the NCAA Tournament came to a close. Allow me to share with you the experience of one thrilled yet deflated Tournament fanatic watching his bracket crumble.
This is it—my final installment. It’s been quite a run. My journalism career began with a riveting game story of the women’s soccer team’s trip to Ohio State, and from there I progressed slowly but surely and dabbled in just about every sport Duke has to offer.
This is the point in the college lacrosse season where everyone starts to pay attention.
With the 2011-12 basketball season in the rearview mirror for all but four of the nation’s Division I programs, it’s never too soon to start talking about next year!
GREENSBORO, N.C.—On paper, Duke seemed to have everything in its favor in a second round NCAA tournament matchup with Lehigh. The Blue Devils boasted a more prestigious program, four national championships, one of the nation’s top freshmen and the winningest coach of all time.
Every March since 1985, mankind has pursued the elusive flawless bracket. Each of us has our own system that inevitably fails somewhere between the first round and the Elite Eight, leaving a bruise on the forehead that perpetually says, “Dope! Why didn’t I see that coming?”
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — When No. 5 Duke met No. 15 Florida State for the first time this season, the Seminoles’ timely 3-point shooting ended the Blue Devils’ 45-game home win streak.
Believe it or not, only six games remain on Duke’s regular season schedule. Six more games for the Blue Devils to solidify the team identity that has finally begun to take shape during the past week. Three weeks from now the regular season will be history. A month from now, the madness begins!
Great news for the Duke faithful—it’s February!
Oh, the foul shot. That elusive, undefended moment of bliss when a player is awarded between one and three attempts to make an open shot from a line drawn 15 feet from the basket.
