    Jabari Parker and Rodney Hood both went off for No. 4 Duke as the Blue Devils smacked around North Carolina. Does that mean we can call them a Final Four team again?

  5. Wake Forest beats No. 4 Duke as Blue Devils struggle to score again

    Mar 5, 2014, 9:40 PM EDT

    Duke v Wake Forest

    Wake Forest has made a habit of giving top teams in the ACC a tough time in Winston-Salem, and that was no different for No. 4 Duke on Wednesday night. The Blue Devils were down for most of the first half, entered the break trailing 36-33 and couldn’t seem to get any separation from the…

  6. No. 18 Pitt loses to No. 17 Duke, will enter February without a quality win

    Duke v Pittsburgh

    Pitt had a chance to notch themselves their first noteworthy victory of the season as they hosted No. 17 Duke on Monday evening. Instead, the No. 18 Panthers were run off the floor in the second half, losing 80-65 in a game where Quinn Cook, Duke’s starting point guard, was slowed with an ankle injury.…

  7. Why a 30.5% shooting day is No. 18 Duke’s most important performance this season

    Jan 25, 2014, 2:45 PM EDT

    Florida State v Duke

    Saturday was not the best game that No. 18 Duke has played this season. It’s hard to put that label on a game when a team shoots as poorly from the field (30.5%) as the Blue Devils did against Florida State. It was, however, the most important game that Duke has put together this season,…

  8. Duke doesn’t need Rasheed Sulaimon if they have three guys that fit into a role

    DURHAM, N.C. — The story of No. 10 Duke’s 79-69 win over No. 22 Michigan on Tuesday night was some combination of the Blue Devils’ defensive prowess and the Wolverine’s offensive struggles. Whether you believe that Michigan’s horrendous night, which saw them score 50 points and shoot 39.1% from the floor in the first 38…

  9. The Chase for 180: Doug McDermott’s tough night

    Who is the best shooter in the country? It’s a tough question to answer, isn’t it? Does being a “shooter” simply mean merely being a high-level marksman from beyond the arc? Can a player who thrives in the mid-range but rarely ventures out into three-point land be eligible? How heavily should we be valuing stats like…

  11. No. 6 Duke survives a scare against East Carolina

    Nov 19, 2013, 8:27 PM EDT

    East Carolina v Duke

    Rodney Hood went for 30 points and Jabari Parker finished with 21 points, nine boards and six blocks — his fifth straight game with 20 points to start the season — as No. 6 Duke took every punch that East Carolina could throw and still managed to escape Cameron Indoor Stadium with an 83-74 win.…

  12. Andre Dawkins’ shooting tonight could be an important development for No. 4 Duke

    Much has been made about the circumstances surround Duke senior guard Andre Dawkins’ return to the program after sitting out last season and rightfully so. Taking the time off to address personal issues, there were some who opened wondered if the Chesapeake, Va. native had played his last game in a Duke uniform. But he…

    Tuesday is an indisputably great day for college hoop heads around the country, as we not only get 30 straight hours of hoops, but the marathon session of basketball is capped off with the Champions Classic, the single best in-season event ever. That’s right. I said it. I’ll even take it a step further: I…

    In what has become a nice non-conference game between these two North Carolina schools since the Stephen Curry days at Davidson, Duke had little problem with the Wildcats in the season opener for both teams winning 111-77. The Duke offense was clicking on all cylinders, and seemingly everything they threw up found the bottom of…

  15. Rodney Hood’s development as a redshirt spurred by every other team’s best player?

    Rodney Hood did not want to sit out last season. No athlete ever wants to put their playing career on hold, but the frustration was two-fold for Hood. The former five-star recruit left Mississippi State after one forgettable season playing for Rick Stansbury, alongside the likes of Renardo Sidney and Dee Bost. Hood was good-but-not-great…

  17. Duke debuts faster pace in preseason victory

    This year’s Duke team is younger than what we usually see in Durham. That’s tough, because everyone’s still learning how to play the right way. It’s also a great opportunity, because everyone’s still learning how to play the right way. That means a clever coach can introduce a new style of play without as much…
