Will Duke basketball's dearth of depth cause problems?

(03/21/13 12:36pm)

Duke’s substitution patterns have been in flux for much of the year, as head coach Mike Krzyzewski worked to cover for Ryan Kelly’s injury and Rasheed Sulaimon’s up-and-down freshman campaign. Despite all the changes, he was back to playing a six-man rotation in Duke’s ACC Tournament loss to Maryland, with the seventh and eighth players—Josh Hairston and Alex Murphy—seeing a combined 10 minutes of action.

Duke basketball learns from first-round loss to Lehigh

Traffic around the Greensboro Coliseum can back up for miles during big events like the ACC and NCAA Tournaments. But when the bus carrying the Duke basketball team pulled out late on the evening of March 16, 2012, it stopped for nothing. It’s not difficult to imagine the occupants’ anxiety to leave the Coliseum behind as the harsh lights of police cruisers escorted the bus around traffic and through red lights until it reached I-85.

Duke wrestling loses to North Carolina, remains winless in the ACC

Before the match, Duke head coach Glen Lanham removed his shoes and socks with the slow, calm precision of Mr. Rogers. He and his staff coached barefoot to benefit Samaritan’s Feet, a charity that provides shoes for impoverished people worldwide.

The movement started with several minutes left in the game. From my seat in the upper level of Raleigh’s PNC Arena, it wasn’t hard to notice the tide of N.C. State students making their way into the aisles, pressing down towards the court in anticipation of a Wolfpack victory. Their intention quickly became obvious: If the Wolfpack held on for an increasingly likely win over Duke, they were going to rush the court.

Duke basketball has options for replacing Ryan Kelly

(01/11/13 9:30am)

Foot injuries have been a big problem for Duke in the last few years, and Ryan Kelly just added his name to the list of the afflicted. If Kelly’s injury—the severity of which has yet to be revealed—necessitates an extended absence, it could rank on the impact scale closer to Kyrie Irving’s 2011 mishap than Seth Curry’s or Marshall Plumlee’s issues this season.

Bringing back Duke basketball's moxie

(12/04/12 8:00am)

Last season, you just never got the sense that the Blue Devils ever really clicked. Gone were the days when playing the Blue Devils at Cameron Indoor Stadium was akin to matching up against Tiger Woods (circa 2000) on the final day of a major, when you just knew Duke had the upper hand, if only by sheer moxie. It was difficult to have confidence that they would find answers when they needed them.
