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.
“I strongly feel that that’s not a basketball issue. I’m in charge of the basketball program as much the chancellor and the athletic director allow me to be. And it’s not a basketball issue.”
Williams said, he is aware of the classes that his players take. “I think it varies on a coach,” he said. “I mean, I’m pretty aware of what our guys are doing. And it’s not a basketball issue, guys. It is not a basketball issue. It’s a university issue.
