The Duke men’s basketball team competed in a closed scrimmage against Villanova on Saturday in Washington, D.C.
“This was a great day for us to simulate an actual road trip,” said head coach Mike Krzyzewski. “We came in the night before, had a little bit of a scouting report on Villanova – they have a veteran team, and we knew a lot about their players. We were here for two and a half hours playing. Overall, I thought it was a great day for both teams. Jay Wright is a great friend and he has a big-time program. Both teams played so hard and it was a good day for us in our development.”
