    'When I got on the bus for my first road game at Duke, I saw that every player was carrying textbooks or laptops. I coached in the SEC for 25 years, and I had never seen that before, not even once.' - David Cutcliffe to Duke alumni in Washington, DC, June 2013

    I understand that both Elizabeth Williams and Odera Chidom are seeking approvals to play for the Nigerian women's basketball team, as well.
