The 24th-ranked Blue Devils opened their season in disappointing fashion Friday afternoon, falling 10-9 to Navy in a game that, despite the final score, was anything but close.
Welcome back to the third episode of this season of Cameron Chronicles, a Duke basketball podcast hosted by The Chronicle.
After a dominant win against Notre Dame earlier this week, No. 9 Duke returns to Cameron Indoor Stadium to face Boston College. The Blue Zone is here with some key prop bets:
Every year, Valentine’s Day is during Black History Month; the two are not necessarily related but I do see a connection: love. This is not a sentimental love focused on heart candies with sweet messages (wonderful as they are). In the context of Black history, which is a human history, the love I am thinking of comes from those human beings who endured the fiery brutality of slavery because of the color of their skin — those who came through the blood of the slaughtered, weary years and silent tears. Theirs is a tireless love to live.
During the heart of league play, every game matters. This rings especially true in the ACC, arguably the best conference in women’s hoops, where five of the league’s teams are ranked in the top 25, with three other squads receiving votes in the poll.
After a win against Notre Dame Wednesday night, Duke will look to establish a win streak against Boston College at home Saturday. Before tipoff, the Blue Zone is here with a potential difference-maker for each squad:
Maria Ressa, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate and Filipino-American journalist, spoke about her experiences in journalism, the influence of technology and social media and her perspective on the future of journalism at a Rubenstein Distinguished Lecture Thursday evening.
The Durham Public Schools Board of Education released a report Wednesday night detailing extensive internal miscommunication and fiscal irresponsibility leading up to the current salary dispute.
Durham Public Schools announced Thursday that all Friday classes were canceled due to “an overwhelming number of staff absences” following weeks of demonstrations by DPS teachers, staff, parents and concerned community members.
Durham residents turned out at a city council work session to share their opinions about a proposed resolution calling for a cease-fire in Gaza Thursday afternoon.
Five-hundred-sixty-five miles from his hometown of Barrington Hills, Ill., 405 miles from his new home of Durham and 861 miles from Kansas City, Mo. — the site of the 2024 College Wrestling National Championships — Duke sophomore captain Gaetano Console stepped onto the mat for what would be the most momentous match of his young collegiate career.
Two undergraduate seniors have been selected as this year's Young Trustee finalists.
And in a blink of an eye, it was all over. After a season full of so much hope, everything fell apart with remarkable speed. Less than 24 hours after a triumphant victory over Pitt, Blue Devils football coach Mike Elko stepped on a private jet headed for College Station, Texas, to sign a contract as the new Texas A&M head coach. Soon after, a cascade of Blue Devils hit the transfer portal, making it clear that the Elko Era was officially over. Those happy memories of storming the field after knocking off Clemson, getting hyped for College Gameday and savoring back-to-back bowl victories are now all things of the past.
After a quality road win against Pittsburgh the week prior, Duke hosted Wake Forest, hoping to pick up a key win against a team 0-10 in its ACC contests.
The Blue Devils got back on track Wednesday, picking up a victory at home against Notre Dame. Duke will remain in Durham, this time for a bout with Boston College Saturday. The Blue Zone is here with three keys to a Blue Devil victory:
It was a bit of a rocky road last year for Duke. After a stellar 2022 regular season that featured a consistent top-10 ranking, the Blue Devils struggled pretty immediately in the postseason, falling in their first matchup of the ACC tournament and in their second of the NCAA tournament. The disappointment only continued into 2023. Conference play was Duke’s Achilles’ Heel. After a 6-2 ACC slate in 2022, the Blue Devils ended at 1-8 in the 2023 regular season.
Hedwig Höss (Sandra Hüller) discusses her love of her well-kept garden. The camera cuts between marigolds, sunflowers and roses, finally landing on a single hibiscus. Its red hue slowly envelopes the entirety of the screen. The silent beauty of the garden is overtaken by a droning, rumbling bass that is intermixed with anonymous suffering. The noise is that of the Auschwitz-Birkenau crematoriums. Hedwig’s husband, Rudolph (Christoph Friedel), is its commandant and their family lives on the other side of the camp’s walls.
No. 9 Duke men's basketball began its three-game home stand with a statement win against Notre Dame. The Blue Zone is here to break down the game with a Player of the Game:
Kyle Filipowski opened up the Blue Devils’ first possession with a turnover. Two possessions later, he would miss a layup, followed by a personal foul. With its preseason All-American struggling for the entirety of the first half, No. 9 Duke was in danger of faltering without a strong response from Filipowski’s supporting cast.
A couple decades down the line, Duke fans will look to this year as a pivotal one in the trajectory of the Blue Devils’ youngest varsity team to date. In its sixth season of existence last year, “Team Six” earned the right to host the program’s first NCAA Super Regional in a campaign that saw Duke establish itself as one of the better teams in the country. However, at the tournament, the Blue Devils still stood just short of the best. With the wind in its sails after a strong run in the ACC tournament, punctuated by freshman ace Cassidy Curd’s no-hitter, Duke welcomed Stanford to town, and was brought back down to earth in a two-game sweep.
