On Monday, the Knight Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics hosted a series of panel discussions focused on the NCAA’s amateurism model. While important names like Jay Bilas and Tom Yeager served as headliners, the most refreshing comments of the morning came from the mother of former Duke standout and soon-to-be…
Zion Williamson, the hefty dunking boy whose high-school exploits have been all over YouTube for what feels like a decade now, is finally ready to join the ranks of elite college basketball. Although he’s committed to Duke, he’s not officially a Blue Devil yet, which means you are free to lose your shit at the show he…
On Sunday, Duke lost to No. 1 seed Kansas. Depending on your loyalties—more precisely, depending on if you’re one of the North Carolinians that overpaid for your undergraduate education or one of the Northeastern private schoolers that couldn’t make the cut at Yale—you took this one of two ways.
On this particular Kansas team, with its all killer/no filler six-man core, it can sometimes be easy to overlook the contributions of shooting guard Malik Newman, a relative newcomer who has yet to establish his exact role with the Jayhawks. Devonte’ Graham is the face of the team. Svi Mykhailiuk is the sharpshooter.…
The Kansas Jayhawks accomplished a much-needed task today as they eliminated Mick Krizilonski and Duke in an 85-81 overtime win. The Blue Devils can settle for an Elite Eight appearance and get their dreadful visages off everyone’s TVs. Fuck off!
It sure as hell wasn’t pretty but Duke did what it had to do by scoring more than 60 points, and the Blue Devils sent Syracuse packing as they secured their spot in the Elite Eight.
Are you ready for some more Sweet 16 action? Well, too bad—it’s time to talk some good, ol’ fashioned amateurism.
Last night, Duke rode Marvin Bagley’s monster 33-point, 17-rebound performance to an easy win over Notre Dame in the third round of the ACC tournament.
St. John’s opened its Big East schedule by dropping all eleven games so far this year—even losing to lowly DePaul—but today’s visit by Duke to Madison Square Garden turned things around for Chris Mullin’s squad as the Red Storm knocked off the fourth-ranked Blue Devils 81-77.
Even in the best of conditions Krzyzewskiville, the tent city erected by Duke students before the North Carolina game in a performative tribute of extreme fandom, does not sound like a charming place to be. Getting drunk in a tent is a time-honored pastime, though since this particular gathering is both on Duke’s…
The Duke men’s basketball team, ranked number one overall and undefeated entering Saturday, was toppled this afternoon by Boston College in their first conference game of the season. Eat it, Blue Devils!
In a piece published at CBS Sports on Tuesday, reporter Matt Norlander chatted up several of college basketball’s top coaches, hoping to find a path inside the minds of these titans, these innovators. The main question being posed is the one that’s been vexing the sport since the FBI fucked everyone’s shit up in the…
The Indiana Hoosiers played the absolute best game they could against Duke last night. They shot 50.8 percent from the field against the No. 1 team in the country, limited themselves to nine turnovers, and got a promising career-best game from sophomore big man De’Ron Davis.
The number-one recruit in the country, Duke freshmen Marvin Bagley, took a freakish injury in the first half of his team’s game against Michigan State tonight. As Bagley went up for a rebound on a Spartan shot, teammate Javin DeLaurier caught him in his right eye with some force.
Once again, the loathsome Duke Blue Devils are expected to be one of the best teams in the country. Remember compulsive tripping artist Grayson Allen, a preening dingus whose Very Serious suspension lasted until Duke had an important ballgame? Not only is he back, but he’ll be the captain this year once again. He’ll…
Would you like to work in college athletics? Do you want to be around an elite college basketball team?? Do you have an aversion to earning currency in exchange for your labor??? Boy, do we have a job for you.
On Tuesday, Duke guard Grayson Allen announced his decision to once again forgo the NBA draft and return to Durham.
Smack Apparel—the brilliant minds behind this t-shirt and others of its ilk—has decided to say some very dumb stuff to defend an equally dumb shirt about Grayson Allen’s tripping tendencies.
Duke was unable to handle the Gamecocks as South Carolina eliminated the second-seeded Blue Devils, 88-81.
This is the first of three posts that will preview the NCAA tournament. This one is for people who just want to know which teams have the best shot at winning it all.
