Five Reasons State Can Beat Duke
David Glenn's ACC Journal
Granted, this list would be easier to write in the other direction. Duke is, deservedly, rated the No. 1 team in the nation. Most of the time on Wednesday night, the Blue Devils will have the two (J.J. Redick, Shelden Williams) best players on the floor. Mike Krzyzewski loses at home about as often as Dick Clark is on live television at midnight. So, yes, the title of this article easily could have been "25 Reasons Duke Will Beat State." Read More

Williams a big challege for Pack's Simmons
Andrew Jones * Star-News
When Shelden Williams blocks a shot at Cameron Indoor Stadium, Duke's whacky student section hollers in unison, "Pay your rent, pay your rent…" One of the nation's premiere players and perhaps most imposing defender, Williams' nickname is "The Landlord," hence the constant "rent" references. He patrols the lane, often making anyone daring enough to enter deal with the circumstances. And with two more blocks, Williams will pass Mike Gminski to become Duke's all-time leading shot blocker. That could come tonight (7 p.m., ESPN), as the top-ranked Blue Devils (16-0, 4-1 ACC) host No. 14 N.C. State (14-2, 3-1) in a game that offers Williams one of his stiffest personal challenges of the season. Read More
