A casual viewer may have been confused when they walked into Cameron Indoor Stadium Thursday night. Duke donned its gray uniforms for the first time this season, and the entire staff wore purple “The Sisterhood” pullovers as part of the team’s “We Back Pat” night, honoring legendary coach Pat Summitt while raising awareness for Alzheimer’s disease.

(12/26/23 4:24pm)

Just two weeks ago, it seemed like Duke men’s basketball’s season may be defined by intense underperformance — a-la 2022-23 North Carolina, who similarly began highly ranked before enduring an early slide. With star sophomore point guard Tyrese Proctor suffering an ankle injury and the Blue Devils sitting at 5-3, the outlook was bleak.
