    Her HS men's team features the sons of Lebron James and Dwayne Wade. Bet that gym is packed on game nights.

    Sierra Canyon was also Marvin Bagley's high school.

    The AP preseason rankings are out, but Duke is not in. (No shock there.)
    ACC teams are
    #9 Louisville
    #12 FSU
    #14 NCSU
    #16 ND
    #18 Miami (tie)
    #21 Syracuse

    Once again, the conference is well represented.

    Tied for 40th with UNC-CHeat. Behind such notables as Boise State and both South Dakota and South Dakota State. I think we're better than 40.... just have to go out an prove it. Hopefully like we did in 2016-17.

    Duke is playing Alaska Anchorage in an exhibition and leads after one quarter 23-13. Na Odom hits her first career three pointer at the buzzer.

    51-33 at the half. This team is showing some firepower.

    91 - 59 Final. Regular season begins Tuesday. Neither Boykin or Lambert played. Two freshmen scored in double digits, Baines and Claude.

    Lambert is on track to see the court sometime this month. Unfortunately, not likely next week against Texas A&M. Remember, Lambert is from Texas.

    Boykin had her surgery much more recently than Lambert and consequently is further behind.

    Pleasant surprise.

    Kyra Lambert will play tonight in Duke's season opener against High Point.

    Very cool. Will her action be limited?

    Outstanding news! Can't wait to see her back in action. Very happy for Kyra!

    FWIW, Creme’s pre-season bracketology has Duke as an eight seed. Which feels about right. Expectation management will be a key to enjoying this season rather than moping through it or worse.

    This is who we are. If you can’t deal ...

    Kyra made her first bucket in over two years... on a 75 foot heave to end the 1st quarter. Gotta believe it will end up on ESPN's top 10 plays of the day...or whatever they call it.

    48-29 at the half. HPU with a lot of three attempts, not much else.

    The play reflects this is the first game of the year.

    Good first game. An over-matched and shorter HPU team made 9 threes, but shot 34 of them for 26%. good defensive effort there.

    I liked the mobile offense, a lot of cuts to the basket. Looks like we’ll play nine, with Leaonna, Haley, Onome, Miata and Jade starting. Kyra will play limited minutes at the beginning, and three frosh, Jada, Jaida and Azana will play a lot. Good movement from them, a lot of slashing. 50% from three, including Leaonna’s first two career threes, and 22-25 from the line (88%).

    Big step up in opponents on Sunday against #6 Texas A&M.
