Grant Hill and his wife Tamia donated $1.25 million to Duke, the school announced Wednesday. $1 million of the donation will be used to upgrade athletics facilities, and the remaining $250,000 will go to the Annual Fund for the Trinity College of Arts and Sciences.

“I’m going to coach USA, and this is true, through Rio [in the 2016 Olympics]. I might coach in college longer. Probably. I do not see an end of my road in my college coaching.”
Congrats to Tyler! Such an awesome and perfect opportunity for him!

Duke released its non-conference schedule for this upcoming season. We’ve got some good match-ups to look forward to! (x)
@rodneymhood: It’s official! So excited to be apart of this organization! Thank you #jazz (x)
Can you imagine if the Cavs get Kevin Love too?
I might just straight up move to Cleveland if that happens.
LeBron back to Cleveland. I’m not gonna lie, I am SO looking forward to seeing what he and Kyrie can do together on the Cavs. (x)
Made some changes to this blog!
- New icon of some Crazies. Not a big deal, but a change nonetheless, and definitely a step-up from that “DUKE BASKETBALL NEVER STOPS” logo that I made in about 10 minutes on the Mac equivalent of Paint however long ago.
- After, like, two years, I finally installed a theme, and things actually look halfway decent.
- No more drop-down menu to search for current players. Instead, there’s just a search box. Just type in who ya want to find, press Enter, and you’re set!
Also, for this upcoming season, I really want to start writing original pieces regarding Duke basketball—recaps of games from certain angles, opinion pieces on different happenings, and just things like that. Nothing serious really, but I used to write more stuff for this blog, then I just got lazy and busy with other work for school. So hopefully I can pick that up again!
But that’s about it. Have a good day, y’all!
