NCAA Basketball Boston College at Duke

Legendary Duke men's basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski reportedly banned his team from the locker room and told his players they were no longer allowed to wear Blue Devils gear.

The report said the locker room ban was temporary, so we'll have to wait and see how this plays out. Wake Forest ended a 25-game ACC road losing streak by winning last Saturday at North Carolina State and a few hours later Duke rallied to overcome Miami.

After Allen's 3 with 52.5 seconds left pulled Duke to 83-82, the Demon Deacons worked on the clock before Woods missed a 3 over Kennard and Harry Giles grabbed the rebound for the Blue Devils.

A source told ESPN the penalty would last "until they start living up to the standards of the Duke program". They haven't finished under.500 in conference play since 1994-95, which was also the last time they failed to reach the NCAA tournament.

He does regret, however, that other relatives he left behind may have been punished and sent to prison camps for his defection. Mr Thae , who defected last August, predicts that reunification with South Korea could happen within five years.

Despite a bevy of elite freshmen, it's been an arduous league schedule so far for Duke. For most of the day they appeared headed for their fourth loss in five games. It was the third time he'd tripped an opposing player in the past year. Duke, on the other hand, came into the season as the preseason No. 1 ranked team in the AP Poll and had very legitimate National Championship aspirations.

Luke Kennard was absolutely en fuego from three-point land on Saturday against Wake Forest. While Allen excels at drive-and-kicks and Jackson is growing more comfortable bringing the ball up, watching the pair run the offense simply reminds one of how good Duke had it with Tyus Jones at the helm of 2015's championship team.
