Duke men's basketball 2018-19 player preview: Cam Reddish

(10/31/18 2:38pm)

Game Breakdown: There is a reason Reddish is coming into Durham as the No. 3 overall recruit in his class, behind only teammates R.J. Barrett and Zion Williamson.

Overall, many scouts actually label Reddish as having the most pure basketball talent out of Duke’s top three freshmen, but with that talent comes causes of concern as well. 


Duke women’s basketball 2018-19 player preview: Jade Williams

(10/31/18 2:28pm)

Game Breakdown: The No. 14 overall prospect in the Class of 2017, Williams is one of the more talented young bigs in the ACC.

Offensively, Williams will not be a threat from downtown—she missed her lone three-point attempt last season. But the faceup-five has a keen ability to finish inside and a mid-range shooting touch that forces defenders to keep an eye on her at all times.
