Duke Beats Col. State In Home Opener

Duke kept the W’s coming in the home opener against Colorado State, exhibiting a well-balanced team. Tre Jones took charge yet again, giving out 8 assists alongside his 15 points and 5 rebounds. Three freshman and Alex O’Connell were also into double figures.

Cassius Stanley, the freshman from California, has caught the eye of Duke fans and college basketball analysts alike. His athleticism is outstanding, his vertical jump having outreached even Zion Williamson. Stanley went for 19 points and 7 rebounds, leading the Blue Devils in both categories.

Alex O’Connell put up 14 points on 50% shooting from 3. O’Connell, a junior, provides valuable range and experience for the freshman. He started on Friday, taking the place of Jordan Goldwire.

Bleed blue. Duke is back in action against Arkansas State to begin the Empire Classic on Tuesday at 7pm.
