Here is an overview of what the Duke Men's Basketball team did for their pre-game warm-up against Wake Forest in early January. They took the court about 60 minutes before tip-off. They were precise, focused and enthusiastic in everything they did. They were organized and structured... nothing was haphazard. It paid off, they beat a very solid W.F. team by 20.
I would like to extend a special thank you to Hoop Connection for laying down the track... the song is from a hip hop artist who is boys with LeBron James!

Thanks for sharing this! For guys like me who have never had a chance to visit CIS or watch a game there, it's gives us a little insight to what actually happens. Also, I often wonder how the players run on the court from the locker room to start the game...is there music playing and or a video showing, are the lights off with laser graphics on the floor, etc?
I want to implement Duke's warm-ups with the team that I coach, but I have trouble explaining the passing drill that starts at the 30 second mark. I'm sure it is easier than I make it out to be, but if anyone has an explanation I would appreciate it. Also, can it be done with 8 players?
things to do this weekend:
1) watch duke
2) chip in to iron dukes for the average cost of one cleaning bill for "gatorade stain removal"
