SDBB – Welcome to Duke Basketball – The 2017-18 Season

By Bermuda Bob

Greetings to all our readers near and far !!! 

We welcome you if you are a 1st time reader and hope you will join us throughout this season !!!

I am not prone to making predictions of where teams will finish, which players will dominate, or even who will play.  Considering the ups and downs of the last 5 seasons, Duke fans might think they have seen it all.  Here are just a few that you might pull of the top of your head … 

  • A National Championship …
  • A 1st Round Loss …
  • Two (2) Associate Coaches get teams of the own …
  • The disappointment of a season ending injury … 
  • A Red Shirted Senior …
  • The 1st player ever dismissed …
  • Five (5) players transferring to new schools … 
  • The disappointment of early injuries to pivotal Frosh  …
  • A surprise ACC Championship …
  • 1000 Career Wins for Coach K …
  • The youngest team ever for Coach K …

This year gets off with eight (8) new Freshman faces replacing:

  • The Graduation of Amile Jefferson, Matt Jones, & Nick Pagliuca …
  • The Transfer of Sean Obi and Chase Jeter …
  • Harry Giles, Luke Kennard, Frank Jackson, & Jason Tatum to the NBA

Between now and the 19th of October, we will be introducing you to this year’s team, via a daily profile of each player, then the coaches.

Don’t forget the 20th of October at 7PM is “Countdown to Craziness” ...   

So, join us daily, won’t you ???
