The Brotherhood runs strong through Duke men’s basketball, and nowhere is that more clear than in its coaching staff. Every man behind the Blue Devil bench was also once a Blue Devil himself.

But the guy who has glided under the radar has also quietly developed into the player that makes the Duke clock tick.
LOUISVILLE, KY.—Duke touched down in Louisville Friday for its noon tipoff Saturday against the Cardinals.

Here’s our five observations from the first 20 minutes.

Duke made the short bus ride to Winston-Salem, N.C., for a 7 p.m. showdown against Wake Forest.

Here’s five of our observations from the opening 20 minutes.
