    I feel so bad for DeMarcus. He has been one of my favorite players at Duke. Were going to miss him terribly. I look forward to seeing him make it in the NBA. The hardest worker on this years team by far.

    DeMarcus,

    We watched you play as a senior, before you'd committed to Duke, and I enjoyed your game then as today, and I wanted to say thank you for representing Duke with class and dignity and also, thank you for your efforts! We would not have accomplished what we were able to this year without your leadership and sacrifice.

    Thanks Demarcus

    Great ride with you Markie, you had four tough years and battled through some major injuries to still score over 1,000 career points and probably had one of the top 10 senior years of just about anyone in Duke history outside of the Mega-stars.

    Plus, he just seems like a great kid. The shots didn't fall today, but I love the heart.

    Man I hate March after all...So bleepin depressing.

    Where do you think he'll get picked in the draft

    Honestly, I'm not sure he will. Which is a complete crime. I hope I'm wrong though, if he has some good pre-draft workouts with some teams that could change, I'm wishing him the best. He'll never be a star, but he can definitely be a contributor...

    Adding to the praise

    Yes thank you DeMarcus,

    No one will ever convince me that we wouldn't have been a final four team in 2006 if you had been around and healthy. We might have even won it all.

    As it stands, you stood tall through some good times and some of the more trying times. Your task was difficult and you took it on without complaint or hesitation, and certainly fared better than most under the circumstances.

    Farewell

    Thanks for four years of hard work and effort DeMarcus!

    I'm probably being petty in another thread.

  14. First off, thank you to DeMarcus. You gave Duke everything you had for four seasons and I wish you well whatever career you plan to pursue.

    I'm especially sad because Demarcus will always be a "what if" player for me. With four healthy seasons Markie could have been one of the greats, provided the third option we never found in the JJ/Shel years, and gone out on a much less humiliating note. I'll never question his character or effort, but I still miss the player we never got to see.

    Thanks for the effort and dedication, Markie. We're all so proud of you and will miss your D and effort every night.

    DeMarcus will be missed. Good show for a fine senior year. Many games would have been lost this season were it not for your fine efforts. This capt salutes the real Captain!

    Thank you, #21!

    Nelson brought so much heart and toughness to the court this season, and his determination to always improve himself showed through his entire Duke career.

    Best wishes for the next phase of this talented young man's life. I hope he takes his Duke degree with him!

    Thanks DeMarcus - you now join the pantheon of Duke captains and players. We look forward to following your professional basketball career and (hopefully) hearing about your career post-basketball. I also hope to see you in Cameron for a Duke-UNC tilt in years to come. Well done, DeMarcus, and thanks for four great years!
