Season breakdown: Two words: freshman phenom. Vernon Carey Jr. was among the most dominant diaper dandies in America this season, providing a consistent interior presence on both ends of the floor. He displayed a refined offensive skill set throughout the year, and often gave the Blue Devils a reliable option to turn to in crucial moments. In the low post, the South Florida native utilized a bevy of moves to his favor, particularly quick spins and drop steps.
After losing a member of its 2020-2021 roster just a day ago, the Blue Devils have added another component to their squad.
College students have watched the spread of the coronavirus with a range of shifting emotions: dismissal at first, then horror as the virus closed campuses and canceled travel plans.

Looking for courses to knock out some Trinity requirements? Realized you really don’t want to fill your fourth credit slot with another core course this semester?
Season breakdown: Cassius Stanley was already known as a showman before he even stepped foot onto Duke’s campus, but he proved that with his electric playing style comes legitimate output. Most will look back on the Los Angeles native's season to reminisce on the dunks, and there are a fair share to choose from. But there was more to the Stanley experience this year. The freshman turned in his best performances when the rest of the team came out flat: his 24-point and 22-point lines against Louisville and North Carolina, respectively, proved to be essential in keeping the Blue Devils in both games.
Thinking About the Future

Patrick Tape's stint as a Blue Devil lasted all of nine days.
On March 6, students departed campus for spring break, anticipating a week of rest and a reprieve from academics and extracurriculars. Four days later, the semester as they knew it was over. In a dramatic institutional response to the burgeoning coronavirus pandemic, Duke turned on a dime, shutting down campus, extending spring break and digitizing the entire university experience. That transition has not been seamless. Yet we have never loved Duke more.
In a budding spring without nightclubs, windows-down car rides with friends and almost every other moment that begs for new pop music, it might feel weird to revel in “Future Nostalgia,” the electronic, disco, dance-pop album that Dua Lipa released last Friday. But Lipa’s album gives me a vivid mental image of what our post-quarantine nights will be like — and I hope you join me in that “nostalgia” for the future.

Up to $50 million has been approved for new research on a potential COVID-19 treatment, and Duke is taking charge.
What used to be a two-hour sit-down is now a 20-minute Zoom conference—welcome to the new Duke Student Government Senate meetings.
Duke may be keeping its default satisfactory/unsatisfactory grading policy for now, but that does not mean undergraduate student debate about it has stopped.
Senior Kerry Castor first heard the news about Duke’s transition to online classes while on the elliptical in Wilson Recreation Center. Her phone flashed with a message from her swing dancing club’s GroupMe chat.
If the past two weeks have afforded me anything, it is an uncomfortable amount of free time. As a slightly overly-introspective dreamer, I have filled these hours reading, writing and reflecting on our current situation. And I would be lying if I said that I did not clearly feel God’s presence in these moments.
