Facing North Carolina, Duke women's basketball puts undefeated ACC record on the line
by The Chronicle
Jan 01, 2018
“Haley Peters left Chapel Hill last year with a smile on her face, despite the 17 freshly sewn stitches in her left cheek.
Peters bounced back from Tar Heel senior Chay Shegog’s ferocious, albeit inadvertent, elbow to finish with nine points and seven rebounds, leading the Blue Devils to a 69-63 victory.
The prospect of a little physicality has not left Duke’s 6-foot-3 junior apprehensive about the game—she looks forward to the energized environment.
“[The rivalry has] always meant a lot...”

Duke students flock to Europe for study abroad
by The Chronicle
Jan 01, 2018
“Despite increasing talk about a broader global focus, the numbers show European countries remain the primary destination for Duke students studying abroad.
Of a total 576 students who studied abroad in Fall 2012, 412 studied in Europe, according to data from the Global Education Office for Undergraduates. Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom are the three most popular locations, and only three non-European countries—Australia, Costa Rica and South Africa—rank in the top 10. The breakdown has...”

A tribute to Maryland, "not our rivals"
by The Chronicle
Jun 19, 2018
“As the final seconds ticked down in Duke’s 20-point victory against Maryland last weekend, chants of “not our rivals” cascaded through the confines of Cameron Indoor Stadium.
Although the win meant a solid recovery from a disastrous 27-point loss in Miami, it also held the added significance of being potentially the last time the Terrapins play at Cameron Indoor Stadium before they depart for the Big Ten in the 2014-15 season.
It is true—the Terps are not our rivals. They never have been,...”

Duke fencing's long drive to MIT
by The Chronicle
Jan 01, 2018
“The Blue Devils will travel nearly 700 miles to Cambridge, Mass. this weekend to participate in the MIT Duals. The team will not be flying that distance, and instead will traverse the Atlantic coast by bus—the ride is estimated to take about 12 hours. Despite the long distance traveled, Duke head coach Alex Beguinet does not think that his team will be phased.
“First, our focus during the season is entirely on winning and improving at every meet,” Beguinet said. “How we travel to our...”

Duke basketball pushes for second road victory at Florida State
by The Chronicle
Jan 01, 2018
“With its first true road win now under its belt, No. 5 Duke (18-2, 5-2 in the ACC) will attempt to earn its second straight victory away from Cameron Indoor Stadium, as it travels south to take on Florida State Saturday at 2 p.m. in the Donald L. Tucker Center.
The Seminoles (12-8, 4-3 in the ACC) currently sit tied for fifth in the league with North Carolina. Last year’s ACC tournament champs—who defeated traditional conference juggernauts Duke and North Carolina twice each last season—enter...”

Facing Miami, Duke women's basketball looks to stay undefeated in the ACC
by The Chronicle
Jan 01, 2018
“ACC play can be competitive and grueling. But this season, the ACC has barely challenged the Blue Devils on court.
Coming off two recent victories against Clemson and Boston College, No. 5 Duke will seek to continue that dominance against against a physical Miami squad Thursday evening at Cameron Indoor Stadium.
In Miami (14-6, 5-4 in the ACC), the Blue Devils (18-1, 8-0) will face a team that lost by two points on a buzzer beater to No. 11 North Carolina in its last game.
The last time...”

Unselfish play guides Duke basketball's 79-60 win against Florida State
by The Chronicle
Jan 01, 2018
“Sometimes there is nothing a team can do to make the shots go in. Sometimes everything falls. The most a team can do is put itself in a position to shoot a high percentage.
On Wednesday, Wake Forest’s hot shooting put the Demon Deacons in a position to upset the Blue Devils even though their effort ultimately fell short. Saturday, No. 5 Duke (19-2, 6-2 in the ACC) brought its hottest hand but it was more than random fluctuation. The Blue Devils shared the shots and moved the ball to put...”

FS WHO? Duke basketball shoots past the Seminoles 79-60
by The Chronicle
Jan 01, 2018
“TALLAHASSEE, Fla.—For the second time in as many weeks, Duke basketball has traveled to Florida for a rout. Unlike the 90-63 drubbing they received at the hands of Miami Jan. 23, though, the Blue Devils were the ones dealing out the beating Saturday afternoon at the Donald L. Tucker Center.
Behind a lights-out shooting performance from the backcourt trio of Quinn Cook, Seth Curry and Rasheed Sulaimon, Duke demolished Florida State 79-60 on the Seminoles’ home floor.
While Florida State star...”

Duke basketball's win against Wake Forest was more than just a win
by The Chronicle
Jan 01, 2018
“WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.—In sports, wins are a statistic—the most important statistic. But even though a team’s record doesn’t ultimately count as anything more than a number, wins also represent experiences for a team.
Wednesday night in Winston-Salem, the No. 5 Blue Devils earned another tally for their win column but also got a valuable experience beating an upstart Wake Forest squad on the road 75-70.
Head coach Mike Krzyzewski spoke after the game and emphasized wins as numbers rather than...”
