Every Monday morning, Crazie Talk culls Duke basketball news, articles, and videos into a half dozen of the best “Deviled Eggs” on the interwebs.
Here are this week’s best:
1. National Champions! Again!
Dana O’Neil with a great piece on Duke’s first ever championship in lacrosse. The past five years have been a remarkable journey.
As we mentioned yesterday, Murphy and Muhammad are the top priorities for Coach K in the Class of 2012. Duke has a great shot at both of these guys.
Rivers was kind enough to share the latest news on his recruitment while in Los Angeles for the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League. Although Austin says he’s wide open, Duke is a major player here. Rivers will make the call in August.
The Boston Globe had some interesting insights as to the relationship between the two most recent jersey retirees in Cameron Indoor Stadium. Maybe it’s me, but I found it a little odd that J.J and Shelden, for all they went through as classmates, were never really close off of the court.
The folks at March to March aren’t so sure. He’s struggled at times against elite competition this summer, but has also been unstoppable at a few events. He’s prided himself in being similar to Durant, but he’ll have to prove that he’s worth the hype on the AAU circuit this summer.
Marshall Plumlee (brother of Duke’s Mason and Miles) and Cody Zeller (brother of UNC’s Tyler) are AAU teammates, with brothers on opposite sides of the rivalry.
