DURHAM – Blue Devil Nation was on the scene in Cameron Indoor Stadium as Coach Mike Krzyzewski won his 902nd career game, tying Bobby Knight for the record. I caught up to Ryan Kelly who scored a team high 17 points and Miles Plumlee who had a double-double of 13 points and 11 rebounds for their thoughts on the game and Coach K’s accomplishment.
Ryan Kelly came off the bench against Shaw to help Duke to an 80-66 win as he put up numbers of a team high 15 points while grabbing 8 rebounds. He was credited with 2 steals, but trust me, he had 3 from my vantage. Ryan spoke to BDN after the game saying he knew he needed to be more aggressive and that he was not happy with his performance against Bellarmine in the exhibition season opener.
Blue Devil Nation video was live and on the scene at Cameron Indoor Stadium for the Blue Devils win over Shaw. I caught up to Kyrie Irving in the locker room for a one on one interview where he spoke of going to sit with the Cameron Crazies with Nolan Smith and Lance Thomas. I also addressed the Duke-UNC alumni game that is in the works with him. Interestingly, another Duke site ran with all of my questions via WRAL which gives me a bit of a smile. They all follow BDN around, LOL. You can view our outstanding photo galleries by joining our Blue Devil Nation Open Group Facebook page
Andre Dawkins came off the Duke bench knocking down three 3 point shots and ended the game with 12 points and 2 reounds. “He’s a veteran, he needs to do that,” said Coach Krzyzewski when questioned of what he thought of Dawkins lifting the team.
