    I do not know the answer to that question, but I'll try and find out. I am moving to Shanghai in 3 weeks (where I worked last summer as well) and my father is going to be speaking to some people in the Iron Dukes office about attending the games and whatnot, so I'll make sure to mention the inside access to him.

    Info on the China tour?

    Hey all!

    Just wondering... does anyone know any more info about the China trip, as far as broadcasting of games and all? I don't recall seeing anything anywhere... but I'd love an early glimpse at the guys!

    Thanks!

    One update from the thread that Watzone started earlier today. All of the Duke Freshman will be taking the Dubai/China trip as all will be enrolled in Summer School and be on campus no later than June. I assume Coach Capel will be taking the trip as well.

    The team will get 10 full/regular practices with the complete coaching staff as though it were the Regular Season, prior to leaving for Dubai. That will go a long ways toward helping the development of this young squad.

    During the trip the team can practice as many times as they need/want to, along with playing in the exhibition games.

    Good stuff and perfect timing.

    TV Coverage?...oh, good!

    From the Chronicle:

    Expanding the Brand

    The University is currently in talks with ESPN International to broadcast three of the four games on the ESPN family of networks, according to senior associate director of athletics and director of the basketball legacy fund Mike Cragg.

    Chronicle article on trip

    Sorry, let me try that again.

    With his Olympic coaching experience, I'll guess Coach K is approaching celebrity status in China, though perhaps not to the level of Shane Battier?

    Just so we are clear about expectations, the Chinese National Team, against whom Duke will be scrimmaging, is very good. They are extremely tall and will be physically stronger than almost all the kids on the Duke roster. We will be more skilled, but I would expect tough games against them. The Chinese PF played in the NBA a while back.

    They would probably kill Duke if Yao Ming and Yi Jianlian were playing.

    Does this strike anyone as an unfair advantage for us being able to play and practice out of season? I know it is ok under the rules, but shouldn't all teams do something like this, even if it is to Canada or Mexico?

    Every team gets the opportunity to do the same every four years.

    A lot of them do. Here's the listings of a google search of the subject.

    Additionally, the extra practice time makes sense considering something I've heard Coach K say a number of times, most recently in the Paterno/Krzyzewski ESPN special. That is that the NCAA restrictions on practice time allowed with the coaches is not realistic. The players are involved with basketball for many more hours, but are prevented by the rules from additional contact with their best resource, their own coaches.

    Can't help but to mention that no where does Andy Katz even talk about Josh Hairston! I really do not understand why he just gets lost in the mix. I hope he uses this as motivation this year. But I'm pretty sure Katz mentions every scholarship player on the team except Josh. Maybe its due to the fact no one knows what his role will be? Hmm...

    True. The UAE team, on the other hand, is probably the equivalent of a bad high-school team. Most of the guys don't even play professionally... and the ones that do barely participate on the teams they play for. That'll be a fun one.
