Duke men's basketball kicks off season with open practice

(10/04/15 3:43pm)

Six months removed from capturing the program's fifth national title in April, Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski and the Blue Devils officially kicked off their 2015-16 season Friday afternoon with an open practice available to the public. The squad that took the court at Cameron Indoor Stadium Friday looked very different from the one that cut down the nets at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis—gone were the likes of Quinn Cook, Jahlil Okafor, Tyus Jones and Justise Winslow, and in their places stood Brandon Ingram, Chase Jeter, Luke Kennard and Derryck Thornton.

Blue Devils hampered by conservative offense in loss to Wildcats

In the Blue Devils’ first two games of the season, the offense carried the team to a pair of easy victories by averaging nearly 600 yards per game and eclipsing 35 points both times.

Duke kicked off its season on a positive note Thursday night, easily dispatching Tulane 37-7 at Yulman Stadium in New Orleans. Thomas Sirk led the way in his first career start at quarterback, amassing more than 350 total yards. Several other new starters had big days for the Blue Devils—including wideouts Johnell Barnes and T.J. Rahming—and the defense shut out the Green Wave for the first three quarters in a complete win for head coach David Cutcliffe’s squad.

With pillars of past success gone, fresh faces must shine for Duke football

In last year’s season opener, the Blue Devils put 52 points on Elon. Quarterback Anthony Boone tossed four touchdown passes—two apiece to Jamison Crowder and Issac Blakeney—and Laken Tomlinson helped pave the way for a 275-yard rushing performance, led by a team-high 74 from Josh Snead.

2015 Florida State football season preview

(09/02/15 7:32am)

The last time Duke shared a field with Florida State, it was not much of a contest. Riding high with a 10-2 record, the upstart Blue Devils clashed with the undefeated No. 1 Seminoles in the ACC Championship game in December 2013 and held the game scoreless for the first quarter before Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston kicked his offense into gear en route to a 45-7 win.
