Thema: Blue Devils will play exhibition games against the Dominican Republic s men s national team (

Geschrieben von: apylantie am: 14.06.17, 10:11:04
Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski will get an early look at his reconstructed team thanks to an August trip to the Caribbean.

The Blue Devils will play exhibition games against the Dominican Republic s men s national team on Aug. 20 in Santiago and on Aug. 23 in Santo Domingo as it prepares for the FIBA Americas Championship.

Perhaps most valuable to a Duke team that lost eight players from last season s roster and adds the nation s second ranked recruiting class will be the 10 practices the Blue Devils are allowed before the trip.

“The Dominican Republic is a good team, and we’re going to see who our guys are during these practices and games,” Krzyzewski said in a statement. “We lost seven of our top eight scorers from last season; this is almost an entirely new team. No matter how much you work out or practice, you really don’t know about a team until you see it in competition. This will be an unbelievable bonding experience for our group and we’ll also get to see how they play together before we start practice at the end of September.”

Grayson Allen is Duke s lone returning starter from last season, with sophomore forwards Marques Bolden and Javin DeLaurier expected to take on a larger role.

Krzyzewski has already said he wants the ball in the hands of freshman point guard Trevon Duval, who is likely to be joined in the starting lineup by fellow blue chip freshmen Gary Trent Jr. and Wendell Carter.

NCAA rules allow college basketball programs to go on a foreign exhibition tour once every four years. This will be the Blue Devils first trip overseas since a 2011 tour took them to China and Dubai.

iTunes chief and basketball devotee Eddy Cue was about as close as a fan can get Monday night, watching as the Golden State Warriors dominated the Cleveland Cavaliers to capture their second NBA championship in three years.

AppleInsider reader Willie captured the above picture of Cue courtside after the final buzzer sounded, giving the Warriors a 129 120 win, capping a dominant 4 1 series and 16 1 playoff run.

Last year, Cue even made the cover of the San Francisco Chronicle, in a photo where he was cheering on Warriors point guard Stephen Curry.

As a high profile Apple executive, Cue s pricey seats and passion have made him a fixture at Golden State games throughout the season. He even caught some flak earlier in the NBA Finals when TV watchers thought it looked like Cue yelled at pop singer and Cavs devotee Rihanna— though Cue himself denied the accusations on Twitter.

Having received a bachelor s degree in Computer Science and Economics from Duke University, the Apple senior vice president is also a Blue Devils basketball fan, and has been spotted courtside at NCAA games. Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook also earned an MBA from Duke Jayson Tatum Jersey, and has been photographed at Blue Devils games with Cue.
