Duke men's basketball 2020-21 player review: Mike Buckmire

(03/23/21 1:03am)

Season breakdown: In his final year at Duke, Buckmire posted a similar stat line to previous seasons and provided an exciting moment near the end of a blowout victory. The Pennsylvania native scored his only points of the season on a putback layup during the Blue Devils’ 79-53 win against Clemson back in January, a fitting end to what was one of Duke’s most impressive displays of the ACC slate. Interestingly, another one of Buckmire’s appearances came near the end of the first half in a road loss to Virginia Tech earlier that month, albeit for less than a minute. While Buckmire never had a breakout game a la Justin Robinson, he remained a fan favorite and a valuable leader within the program.

Last year was a hectic one for every track and field program in the country, but the Blue Devils dealt with a unique challenge outside of COVID-19. After 30 years as a member of the coaching staff—including the last 17 as the director of the track and field program—Norm Ogilvie announced his retirement last April. With Shawn Wilbourn now at the helm as interim head coach, a new era for track and field in Durham is underway.

Duke women's golf 2021 season preview

(02/16/21 7:38am)

There’s a lot for the Duke women’s golf team to be concerned about. While the Blue Devils technically enter this season as reigning national champions, much of their title-winning squad from 2019 is gone. Duke did not play at all during the fall due to COVID-19 concerns. The team’s lone senior, Jaravee Boonchant, stayed in her native Thailand during the entire fall semester.


ChronChat: Breaking down Jalen Johnson's decision to opt out of the season

(02/16/21 2:19am)

On Monday night, Jalen Johnson opted out of the remainder of the 2020-21 season, ending a tumultuous campaign for the freshman forward. The five-star recruit started the season with a bang, putting up 19 points and 19 rebounds in the Blue Devils’ season opener, but quickly ran into some issues with replicating that high-level performance. The Milwaukee native missed three games due to a foot injury between December and January and even after returning has seen his playing time decrease in recent contests, including playing just eight minutes Saturday against N.C. State.
