Top Plays: Duke 95, NC State 60

Rasheed Sulaimon hosts Duke Hoop v. 3.2:

President Bush visits Duke:

  • Sulaimon was odd man out as Duke's No. 3 option; he wants inIn the NBA, they call it DNP-CD: Did Not Play-Coach's Decision. If being singled out for such a designation seems cruel, college is worse. They just exclude your name from the box score. You don't play, you don't exist. Except if you're a former McDonald's All-American and ACC all-freshman choice, in which case they talk on television for two hours about why you've disappeared.
  • Rookie Ryan Kelly Leads Lakers Over Celtics: Kelly finished with 20 points in 34 minutes--both career highs. He also had four rebounds, including one especially crucial rebound that gave the Lakers the ball with 25 seconds to play.
  • Turnovers help Duke cruise past NC State: This looked like some of the great Duke's teams of the past crushing an outmatched opponent at home, whether it be a non-conference opponent or an ACC team that is a bit young -- like the Wolfpack this year -- and simply breaking their spirit.
  • George H. W. Bush cheers on victorious Duke Basketball: Duke trounced North Carolina State in Saturday's basketball game, but the crowd favorite was former President George H. W. Bush, who was greeted with a standing ovation and chants of "USA."
  • resident George H. W. Bush Salutes Duke's Mike Krzyzewski for Commitment and Leadership Toward Eliminating Cancer: The 41st President of the United States, George H.W. Bush, traveled to Cameron Indoor Stadium on the campus of Duke University in Durham, NC to recognize Duke men's basketball head coach, Mike Krzyzewski, for his personal commitment and leadership in working toward eliminating cancer as a public health threat.
  • Duke Basketball: Takeaways from the Win over Virginia: It looked like the Duke basketball team was well on its way to an impressive bounce back win over Virginia. The Blue Devils used depth and intensity to overwhelm UVA for much of the night and held an 11 point lead with 3:44 remaining in the game.


  • Crowder Receives Duke Football MVP Honors : Junior wide receiver Jamison Crowder was named the recipient of the Carmen Falcone Most Valuable Player Award at Duke University's annual football banquet held on Friday evening at the Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club in Durham, N.C.
  • Cutcliffe Earns AFCA National COY Honors: Duke head football coach David Cutcliffe has been named the 2013 National Coach of the Year by the American Football Coaches Association, announced on Monday at the organization's annual convention in Indianapolis, Ind.
  • Season wrap: Duke: Duke coach David Cutcliffe has made a recent habit of saying that the Blue Devils are here to stay. If it means more seasons like 2013 are on the horizon, those record books in Durham, N.C., could be re-written an awful lot in the coming years. Duke put together a historic season in 2013, winning eight straight games to go 10-4 (6-2 in the ACC) and win the Coastal Division title before dropping its final two games, against the two most recent Heisman Trophy winners.
