Hill ready, Redick getting closer

Former Dukie Grant Hill says he is ready to go for the season opener with the Orlando Magic.  Hill who has batteled injury after injury in his NBA career says he is feeling the best he has in a very long time.  He showed people that he can duke under the basket off one leg, and he did it with both his right and left legs.  His ankle finally appears to be healthy, now we will have to see if it holds up for an entire season.

The Magic are also closer to activating J.J. Redick of the injured list as he recovers from a left foot injury.  Expect that to happen in the next week or two at the latest.

Blue / White Scrimmage

Seven footer Brian Zoubek stole the show at the Blue – White scrimmage yesterday.  The freshman finished with 27 points and 10 rebounds for the victorious Blue team.  The other freshman also did pretty good, Jon Scheyer had 5 assists, Gerald Henderson and Lance Thomas also finished in double figure points.

Look for Coach K to to use a big lineup at times this season with Zoubek, McRoberts, and Thomas all on the court.  We haven’t seen the Blue Devils use a big lineup like that in a long time so it will be fun to watch.

Newspaper reporting Singler with big lean to Duke

Kyle Singler could be the next big-name prospect to announce for an Atlantic Coast Conference school.  Ranked No. 5 among the country’s high school seniors by prepstars.com, the 6-foot-9 forward is leaning toward Duke over Kansas and Arizona.

Singler, who is from Medford (Ore.) High School, recently eliminated UCLA. He reportedly will make a commitment before November.

It will be an interesting few weeks and I’ve heard for multiple sources that Singler is indeed a big lean towards the Blue Devils.  This is great news for Duke Fans!  Another stud looks to be headed to the program.

Jon Scheyer at the point

Coack K has been very pleased at how well Jon Scheyer has been practicing at point guard.  Scheyer will be called upon to be the floor general as Greg Paulus is out with a foot injury for another 3-4 weeks.  Scheyer can bring the ball up the coart and run the offense pretty well and the Duke players are gaining more confidence in him every day from report out of Durham.

Josh McRoberts will also help with some of the ball handling.  You might be asking why would a center be bringing the ball up the coart?  Well McRoberts has shown his great ball handling skills, and he will use that ability to bring the opposing teams center away from the basket to open up the paint for other Duke players.

We will all get to see how well the point guard play is on Saturday when the Blue Devils have their blue / white scrimmage.  If you still need tickets to the scrimmage we do have some available here.

Looking for Duke Basketball Tickets?  You just got lucky as we have tickets every home and away game and I’m not talking just nosebleed seats, we got the center coart, floor action seats!  Get them before they are gone!  Duke Basketball is hot, and so are their tickets!
