    Jayda Adams is still just Jayda.

    Claude is an undersized post, 6-0, strong, very tough, great rebounder. Can she play inside in the ACC at that height?

    Azana Baines has the most varied offensive game. She's 6-1, will play all three perimeter positions, loves to go to the hole, very creative around the basket.

    Patrick is the best defender, an athletic 2, 3. About 5-10.

    As an aside, Lambert is about two weeks away from full-practice mode. Boykin's surgery was more recent and her return is thus more down the line.
    Thank you!

    ACC preseason polls

    ACC releases the preseason polls and awards. Louisville picked to finish in 1st... 4 teams receive first team votes. Duke picked to finish 7th both by the coaches and the media. Gorecki picked for the All-ACC team by both the coaches and the media.

    Been a loooong time since we've seen ND predicted to be so low. (Low by comparison)
    I would not mind seeing the Wuffettes living up to those expectations, that's good for "local business".

    Clearly some shenanigans going on with Deja Kelly and the last three services in actual agreement on something.

    Maybe they had a couple of these:

    Not having Kyra Lambert back just yet skews the A/TO ratio, as she would undoubtedly be the primary ballhandler. She would also help the three-point shooting, as a playmaker who could get the ball to players that much quicker and as someone who can hit the three herself.

    I only know that he resigned back in the Spring after the season was over. He does work with international teams, so maybe that played into it.

    Coach Joanne P. McCallie, from Blue/White:

    “The offenses this year are all from last year. They’re not brand new or anything, but it’s a different group of talent on the floor. It’s what we do with it and how we make it. We’ve got a long way to go.”

    “We have to be flexible offensively, which we are and have built on. Defensively, we’ve got some work to do. We did shake it up really well in the second half. But defensively and with rebounding, we’ve got a long way to go. We can’t be going basically even with rebounds—that’s going to be trouble.”

    The Chronicle's Duke women's basketball 2019-20 season preview

    Duke basketball is officially back, and the women’s team is gearing up to have an exciting season with many storylines and surprises in store. The Chronicle has you covered with how the Blue Devils have prepared for this upcoming year and how their season shakes up as the year goes on.

    'It’s Duke excellence from top to bottom': Wanisha Smith's journey back to the Blue Devil sidelines
    Spencer Levy (The Chronicle)

    In the midst of a discussion about career goals with a co-worker, the Cincinnati native received a call that encompassed the sentiment felt five seconds prior.
    Duke head coach Joanne P. McCallie was on the other end of the life-changing phone call as Smith’s former coach offered her an assistant coaching job.

    'All heart and soul': Haley Gorecki in position to make Duke women's basketball history
    Jake C. Piazza (The Chronicle)

    In an era where team sports have gravitated towards individual performances being valued more than the team itself, Gorecki is an anomaly.
    “She’s all heart and soul and love of team and one of the gutsiest players I have ever known” said head coach Joanne McCallie. “The thing that separates her is that she is tough as nails…. She doesn’t want attention she just wants to win championships.”
