It has been nearly two weeks since the Duke Blue Devils played an actual basketball game (13 days to be exact), but that doesn’t mean they are out of sight or out of mind. With a 7-2 record, Duke is the eighth ranked team in the country, features one of the best players in the nation (Jabari Parker) and has some guy coaching their team that you might have heard of but can’t spell his name.
They also (finally) have a game again. It’s the kind of game that doesn’t really have that much intrigue to it. At the same time, however, you just never know.

Should I Be Watching?
Sure, why not? Outside of this game being the only one of its kind featuring a ranked team tonight, I would like to know why a “Runnin’ Bulldog” is a good mascot. I don’t know if I want my brand of bulldog to run. Wouldn’t it be better if it were a fighting bulldog or something? I mean, bulldogs that run aren’t that tough, right?
