"We're a team that wants to run and score points," senior Nolan Smith said. "It's going to start with our defense. You can't score off of made baskets, [because] the other team is going to be back and set up. So we're going to want to pressure other teams, create steals, create bad shots. If we don't do that, we're going to end up being a half-court team, and that's not how this team is supposed to play."

This is exactly the stuff I keep talking about. It would be nice to see Sid talk about going up-tempo in specifics like Nolan Smith does here. It might actually inspire confidence.

"Hopefully, we can rebound, so we can run," Krzyzewski said. "We're going to try to force more turnovers and try to get more possessions in a game. I think more possessions in a game would favor our group, whereas not as many possessions in a game would have favored last year's group."

Here's a coach talking specifically about what his team must do in order to up the tempo. What a concept!

After further examination of his right wrist at Duke today, Blue Devils junior forward Kyle Singler is being listed as probable for Wednesday's 9 p.m. game at N.C. State. Team spokesman Matt Plizga said Singler came in Monday for treatment on his wrist, which he hurt when he crashed to the floor after being fouled by Wake Forest's Tony Woods late in Sunday night's 90-70 Blue Devil win. Singler went for tests after the game and wasn't available for comment, but Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said the wrist was stiff rather than sore.

Singler probable for Wednesday's game.

"To say I'm happy is putting it mild," McKinney said. "I loved every minute we were ahead. Every second. Every split-second. And every timeout. It's been a long time since we came here to Tammany Hall and won."

This article is about Duke's 1960 ACC Tournament title, but it's a fun read if you enjoy ACC hoops history. And you get old school quips like Bones McKinney referring to Reynolds Coliseum as Tammany Hall. According to wikipedia, "the term 'Tammany Hall' is now used to refer to a corrupt system of buying or controlling votes." I see what you did there.
