Wow! Could Duke be more efficient in this game? Probably not. I had a bit of a twitter tif with a kid who claimed Duke only schedule soft opponents. Real basketball fans know that Bob McKillop and Davidson are far from cupcakes. Duke handled a veteran group in Davidson with out much problem. Duke exploded for 111 points, 59 at the half. There was no one guy for Duke in fact there were several.
Starting with Jabari Parker who was sharp and made it look so easy in his first official game as a Blue Devil. Parker scored in a variety of ways inside, outside mid-range. Coach K can put this guy anywhere on the floor and good things are going to happen. If this kid is going to get better I fear for the competition especially the guy that has to check him. As good as advertised and maybe better. Parker ended the game with 22 points on 8-10 shooting and 3-3 from distance. The only issue I had with Parker was on the defensive end but he is a work in progress and part of what he will be learning from the Duke staff this year in preparation for an NBA career.
Rodney Hood also scored 22 and to honest I cannot really nail down a position for him, he’s a guard in a forwards body, but also is a forward with guard skills. He’s just a player and plays well, his game is under control and measured. He, like Parker, can score all over the place but his game is suited in my opinion mid-range to paint.

On September 19, 2010, 28 year old Gloria Borges — a Duke ’04 alum, ’04 Class President, and Cameron Crazie for life — was diagnosed with Stage IV Colon Cancer. She started a blog, www.WunderGlo.com, to track her â€œcancer-killing adventuresâ€ as she planned to â€œthoroughly embarrassâ€ the deadly disease with medical treatment, exercise, diet, acupuncture, meditation, and — above all — a positive, tenacious attitude. During her journey, she has barreled through 48 rounds of chemo and 3 surgeries and continues to dominate this deadly disease. Her story has touched many, as her blog has over 100,000 unique visitors and has been read in over 100 countries.
Sensing a deep need to give back to her new community, a community she calls the â€œcancer warriors,â€ Gloria launched The WunderGlo Foundation, a non-profit committed to raising funds to find the cure, support cancer warriors and their loved ones, and promote healthy lifestyle choices.

If you guys don’t know or haven’t read the story of Duke grad Gloria Borges, you need to do yourselves a favor and do so. I’m not sure there is a word in the English language strong enough to adequately portray the passion and drive she has for finding a cure for colon cancer. Please take the time to view the video I’ve embedded below, in addition visit the Wunder Project’s websiteÂ and forward or tell a friend because everyone knows someone who knows someone that cancer impacts.
