To be frank, I’m not a fan of Drake. Even with access to the industry's very best, he somehow manages to release underwhelming tracks at an impressive rate. Although experimental to his fans, “Honestly, Nevermind” was a 52-minute composition of mediocrely produced house-inspired beats and lazy lyrics. Rather than marinating in its critical response and searching for inspiration, less than sever months later, we’ve been introduced to an ambitious, full-length joint album with 21 Savage.
Sportswrap is your one-stop shop for everything Duke athletics, where we’ll recap how each of Duke’s sports currently in competition performed over the last week and give a brief look ahead. Here is our recap for the week of Nov. 7-Nov. 13.
Last year, Duke took 206 minutes to net its first four NCAA tournament goals. Saturday night, the Blue Devils reached that mark in less than a third as much time.
DAVIDSON, N.C.—When we remember basketball games, it is easy to conjure up the flashiest plays and the big-time baskets in clutch moments. However, it is the fundamental skills that decide which team goes home victorious and which one hangs its heads in defeat.
Duke’s 24-7 victory Saturday against Virginia Tech was significant for many reasons for head coach Mike Elko and the Blue Devils—perhaps the best defensive performance of the season, 310 total yards for quarterback Riley Leonard, a seventh win after a combined five wins the two seasons prior. The most important, however, may be the depth they showed out wide.
Just as a tornado warning arrived at Duke, there was a whirlwind of a volleyball match inside Cameron Indoor Stadium. On Friday afternoon, Duke edged out Boston College 3-2 (25-18, 21-25, 25-13, 22-25, 17-15) to attain its 15th win of the season in a highly competitive game.

DAVIDSON, N.C.—The Blue Devils traveled to Belk Arena Saturday to face off against Davidson in their first away game of the season. Coming off of a lopsided victory against Charleston Southern in which six Blue Devils scored in double digits and the team reached 100 points for the first time since 2016, Duke found itself in a defensive battle against the Wildcats.
Duke’s still rolling.

My morning routine includes one of those UV sun lamps that helps with seasonal depression and, in my case, sleep drunkenness from my Delayed Circadian Rhythm sleep-wake cycle. It’s called a Happy Lamp, and it has 4.5 stars on Amazon based on reviews from 7,545 people. I also have a small whiteboard on the left side of my bathroom with a list of get-ready items: put on clothes, take meds, contacts, deodorant, Oh my god please brush your teeth, Lily pack your damn lunch. I set ten alarms, each for fifteen-second increments; my contacts and medication are in a neat pile next to my outfit on my bedside table.

Fourteen Blue Devils saw the court against the Spartans. Eleven grabbed a board. Eleven scored. Five scored in double digits.
After the clock ticked down to zero, the scoreboard displaying a Duke victory, the Blue Devils headed into the locker room. One player set up her phone and played the team’s postgame song, “Seven Nation Army” by The White Stripes. Just like any other victory from that season, they screamed and jumped with excitement to celebrate as the iconic guitar riff played.

As we approach Thanksgiving, I am reminded of the old gospel song that says, “Every day is a day of thanksgiving!”, so today I want to give thanks to God for what I have learned from my dog Niko. I can’t believe that I’m actually writing this—the dean of Duke University Chapel is reflecting on not some theological or religious treatise but instead his dog!
Duke is looking to build on its momentum after defeating Boston College last weekend, 38-31. Saturday afternoon, the Blue Devils have an opportunity to extend their winning streak to three at home against Virginia Tech. The Blue Zone has three keys for a victory:
