  3. Don't blame Duke loss on Irving's return

    Eamonn Brennan

    Before we turn to tonight's helping of Sweet 16 madness, it seems important -- well, not important, but at least worthwhile -- to debunk an altogether too-common theme emerging from Arizona's 93-77 thrashing of Duke Thursday night. The Blue Devils...

  4. A year later, Butler one up on Duke

    Eamonn Brennan

    On April 5, 2010, with a national title on the line, Duke and Butler sparred in Indianapolis for 40 minutes. In the end, Gordon Hayward's last-second, half-court heave missed by inches. Duke won the national title. Butler ended its storybook run with...

  5. Could Kyrie Irving play? Should he?

    Eamonn Brennan

  8. Kyrie Irving's injury still has no name

    Eamonn Brennan

    It's frustrating enough when your star freshman, in the midst of a potential player-of-the-year-type season, gets injured. It's even more frustrating when that injury is so out of left field that it defies diagnosis or understanding. That's where Duk...

  9. 'Save Kyrie's Toe' cheers Irving up

    Eamonn Brennan

    Last week, the Save Kyrie's Toe folks -- a group of Duke students who want to, you know, save Kyrie Irving's toe, I guess -- were brought to my attention on Twitter. Because I had no idea what to make of what was, at that point, basically just a list...

    Eamonn Brennan

    With each passing win, the talk has only gotten louder: Can Duke really do it? The idea that the Blue Devils can make it through the 2010-11 season undefeated isn't exactly full-fledged consensus. I'm not sure a majority of fans or pundits believ...
