To me, the summer has been filled with stories about which Duke player people want to see, obviously people want to see Rodney Hood and Jabari Parker, new faces and players that most of us havenâ€™t seen play at Duke. The player that excites me the most in Duke blue is Quinn Cook. Now that Cook has a year under his belt as a starter and spent this summer steeped in competition and working on his game, I expect huge numbers as well as a renewed effort on the defensive end as well. Averaging just under 12 points a game and just under 5 assists should end up an All-ACC performer this year.
Quinn Cook showed throughout the year the ability to shake his defender and get to the rim when things break down or step back and knock down the 3-pointer. His decision making has always been good and I expect that to tighten up even more as he rolls into his junior year and second year as a starter.
Cook will be the driver of this sleek automobile that will be the Duke offense, he will be given the keys and the green light by Coach K and I, for one, canâ€™t wait to see him go from a Cook to a chef on the court.
