"National championship or bust" may be asking too much from the Duke Blue Devils in the 2014-15 season, but it is certainly a "deep run in the NCAA tournament or bust" scenario for the team. Mike Krzyzewski’s squad inexplicably lost to Mercer in its first game of the last NCAA tournament and n…

Given the way Duke's offense has piled up yards and points against Miami over the last two years, it's easy to see why Hurricanes' defensive end Anthony Chickillo was a little confused about the status of the rivalry.
26 September 2014 | 4:22 pm

As a team, the Duke Blue Devils have something to prove as they enter the 2014-15 season.

“The thing that [Adrian] Wojnarowski wrote was completely off-base. The thing I hate about writers is they want to state their case and they use false information. He put in that Mike [Krzyzewski] went to the hospital [to visit Paul George] for publicity. Paul George’s parents took the p…
