Should Duke cast a wider net? Krzyzewski says no. "Looking at a number of kids is different, but I need to develop a relationship with kids in recruiting -- not just to recruit them but to coach them." He believes that even if a few of those relationships haven't worked out, on balance the Duke program has flourished.

“There is a certain standard around here,” Paulus said recently. “Either you are doing it or you’re not. If I’m not getting it done, then that’s what going to be said. There have been so many great players and such a tradition around here, all those great players ... that’s what the Duke fans are accustomed to.”

"We're using that VCU game as a stepping-stone and for teaching," said Nelson before he injured his wrist. "It left a bad taste in our mouth, and we're using it as motivation for everyone. The players and the staff are motivated to make sure this year is a promising year, to make sure we never feel like that again."

Durham — Some basketball-star wannabes are getting a couple of floor burns this week under the watchful eyes of Duke basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski and some well-known past Blue Devils.

About 80 campers from across the country have paid $10,000 a piece for the five-day Coack K Academy, where they are treated like authentic Blue Devil athletes – drills and all – by the Hall-of-Fame basketball coach and former players like J.J. Redick, Chris Duhon and Jay Williams.
Quote:
The program has hosted all-star games with former Duke players and a roast of Coach Mike Krzyzewski. But this year, there was the K Academy.

Guys dished out $7,500 to be a part of the Duke basketball fantasy camp, and it was worth every penny.

Cornell will visit legendary Cameron Indoor Stadium on Sunday, Jan. 6, in a game that will be nationally televised by FOX and dubbed the Atlantic Coast Conference Game of the Week, Donahue said Tuesday. Also, following a one-year hiatus, the Big Red will play Syracuse at the Carrier Dome on Dec. 22. Donahue said the official schedule will be released in the next couple of weeks.
Quote:
Let's just get it out of the way now-anyone who thinks the Blue Devils will be better off without Josh McRoberts is crazy.

Will they be better than they were last year? Probably. But that's because of a year of experience and development, not to mention a Sean May-sized chip on the team's collective shoulder. With McRoberts, this team would be a Final Four contender from the get-go.
Quote:
"So what's this story going to be about?" Greg Paulus asks.

"Well, if you had to write this story, what would you say?"

"I don't know, I probably wouldn't write it on me," Paulus says, flashing a huge smile and letting out a strong but markedly humble laugh.
