Duke got things started on Saturday with an exhibition game against Div 2 school Virginia Union. Virginia Union was clearly outmatched in the game which was expected as the Blue Devils went on to win 114-50. It was a good win for the Blue Devils but they have plenty of work to do.
In some what of a suprise, freshman Miles Plumlee got the start at center for the Blue Devils. He says he was very nervous as he was announced but he quickly got over the nervousness as he scored the two first baskets for Duke. He finished the game with 14 points, seven rebounds, two blocks in 16 minutes.
Kyle Singler and freshman Elliot Williams led the Blue Devils with 15 points each. In all the Blue Devils had six players score in double figures.
One other suprise in the game was that Nolan Smith got the start at point guard and Greg Paulus came in off the bench. I’m not sure if Coack K is trying light a fire under Greg but he is up to something. Many reporters are saying they would not be suprised if Paulus came off the bench to start the season as well.
Duke will play another exhibition match this Wednesday, November 5th against Lenoir-Rhyne. We will have a update on Thursday regarding the game so please check back!
