Party at Jons House…

Brian HoraceGeneral InformationLeave a Comment

In a game in front of the hometown Jon Scheyer used everything in his repertoire the long ball, the layup, the scoop. It was a thing of beauty, a brilliant performance. Scheyer dropped 31 in the United Center on 10 of 19 shooting as Duke put it on the Cyclones of Iowa State 86-65. Scheyer had help from Nolan Smith … Read More

It was good to see Duke rid itself of last years demons by completely destroying the Clemson Tigers in this game 74-53. Duke gave up only 12 points in the first half and minus a few minute spurt by Clemson after halftime Duke never had any real threat from Clemson. It was good to see Duke show toughness in this … Read More

Clemson Tonight..

Brian HoraceGeneral InformationLeave a Comment

This is an important game for the Devils as the last look they got at Clemson was one of the most embarrassing losses in recent memory, a 47 – 74 drubbing. In the game, Duke played so poorly and were so outmatched by the Tigers, leading scorer Trevor said, “They quit at the end”. That’s probably the worst thing an … Read More

Duke Destroys Penn 114 to 55

Brian HoraceGeneral InformationLeave a Comment

A score like this was inevitable with Penn being as injured as they are and under an interim coach. But it was a good change to play the supporting cast a good amount and get some good rest for the starters with the Clemson right around the corner.

More on Duke WI

More on the Duke loss to the Badgers… in my own opinion of course. *While I appreciate what our bigs are bringing into the game, be it rebounding, defense, it cannot be said that they brought that against WI. Brian Zoubek only had 4, while Lance Thomas had 2. It’s a bit more understandable for Zoubek as he only played … Read More

Duke Falls to Wisconsin 73-69

Brian HoraceGeneral Information7 Comments

More in a bit, Duke as usual not getting the points from the forward spot, 0 from Lance Thomas, and only 6 from the Plumlees combined. 0 from Brian Zoubek, it will continue to be their undoing if it isn’t addressed. The other glaring stat is the turnover battle, Duke with 11, WI only 4.
