    DBR Bites #48 - Another Portal Addition!! Cameron Sheffield Comes To Cameron!

    DBR Bites #48 - Another Portal Addition!! Cameron Sheffield Comes To Cameron!

    We got another one! We thought the Duke Blue Devils were done in the transfer portal, but Jon Scheyer’s always closing. Cameron Sheffield will be headed to Durham as a transfer from Rice, and we react to what he brings to the table on DBR Bites Episode 48.
    Sheffield will head to Durham and is not a guy that’s expected to contend for any significant minutes next season among the guards. But, at 6’6” and with 3 years of D-1 experience under his belt, he still has 2 years of eligibility remaining and can be a guy that can really help the team prepare for games. He can rebound, he’s a consistently decent 3 point shooter, and he will be a guy that can help the team in practice get better. And, there’s more experience added to the roster. Jason and Donald discuss everything and what this means for Duke in 2024-25.
    After the break, Jason is in New Orleans and got a chance to sit down with Sion James at Tulane for some coffee tea as a way to get to meet him and for Sion to get to know some of the Duke community. Jason was impressed by his character and he feels like a guy that can become a fan favorite at Duke. We discuss some of that brief conversation that Jason had with Sion and we end with a nugget about the new roster and how quickly they will unite on campus to get the summer workouts started.

    #628 - Who plays, who sits next year Part 1 - The Perimeter

    #628 - Who plays, who sits next year Part 1 - The Perimeter

    The portal is closed (as far as Duke is concerned)! According to everything the Duke Basketball Roundup has heard, the Duke roster for 2024-25 is pretty much set. There may be a practice player brought it but in terms of meaningful rotation guys, these are the 11 guys. So, the next natural question is -- who plays what role on next year's team? The DBR Podcast crew -- Jason Evans, Donald Wine, and frequent guest-host Scott Rich -- sit down for a deep dive into that question... and they all have different answers. In part 1 of this exercise, they look only at the perimeter players -- from the 5th year transfers to Duke two returnees to a trio of intriguing freshmen. If you want to know which guys start, which one factor in the rotation, and which ones may struggle for minutes, this is the episode you need to listen to.

    #627 - EMERGENCY POD! Sion James commits to Duke!

    #627 - EMERGENCY POD! Sion James commits to Duke!

    Sound the sirens! Sion James is headed to Duke, and we discuss it on Episode 627.
    The 6’6” graduate transfer arrives in Durham after 4 years at Tulane, and Donald and Jason are excited about having him onboard. Besides him being built like a machine, he brings a lot of qualities to the table that will really help the Blue Devils next season, from strong play at the rim to sportsmanship. When it comes to transfer players, it’s about fit...and Sion James is a great fit for the Blue Devils.
    After the break, Christian Reeves is headed to Clemson. We discuss his departure briefly and that leads into a continuation of our conversation on Duke players entering the portal. Donald focuses on some of the talk over Jeremy Roach leaving and he’s here to tell you that it’s not an indictment on the program that he has decided to graduate and leave his home for a new opportunity.

    #626 - Portal Intel, Parent Complaints, and Scheduling News

    #626 - Portal Intel, Parent Complaints, and Scheduling News

    We have all heard the rumors, guard Sion James from Tulane is thiiiis close to picking Duke as his next destination. On the latest episode of the Duke Basketball Roundup Jason and Donald do a deep dive on what the transfer portal has brought and what it has taken away. You will hear intel about how Jon Scheyer is building this roster and what it will take to complete it. The guys also talk about where some of our beloved former Dukies are headed and what their prospects are in those locations. Oh, and there is scheduling news that shows how excited Jon Scheyer is about the 2024-25 Blue Devils as Duke prepares to take on one of the toughest non-conference schedules in the land.
    And, after the break, we have something really unusual. The DBR Podcast peels back the curtain on the decision players made to leave Duke. Jason got a chance to have a brutally honest conversation with a parent of one of the players who entered the portal and Jason tells you exactly what that player heard from the program that led him to choose to continue his playing days elsewhere. It is a raw summation of how some of the kids who are leaving Duke feel about how the program treated them and could be eye opening to some fans.

    #625 - Detailing the History of the Blue Devil!

    We have a fun episode for you! On Episode 625, we discuss the history of the Duke Blue Devil mascot as we interview Bryan Reklis and welcome back Sam Klein!
    Details of the Devil: The History of Duke’s Mascot is a documentary that covers the 102-year history of our beloved mascot and some of the moments that have made the Blue Devil so special to all of us. Sam Klein returns to help us discuss this topic as we welcome Bryan Reklis, Sr. Video Producer of Duke University’s office of Communications & Marketing to the show to discuss the documentary! Bryan helped write, direct, and edit this documentary, which is available on YouTube to watch.
    With Bryan, we go through some of the parts of the film that were important in chronicling the history of the Blue Devil and we get into some stories that were not in the film. Sam Klein, who was the mascot while he attended Duke, also provides us with some info that did not make the film as we discuss why the Blue Devil is so lovable and some of the things that the mascots have to deal with in order to provide boundless energy to Duke sporting events. You won’t want to miss this interview!

    DBR Bites #47 - Next Portal Targets

    DBR Bites #47 - Next Portal Targets

    The latest episode of the Duke Basketball Roundup features a few minutes of several different topics. Jason and Donald begin by looking at Duke's recent activity in the transfer portal. While we don't know the name of the next player Jon Scheyer expects to sign, we are getting some interesting hints about what type of player it will be.
    After that, the guys spend a few moments getting giddy over what they have seen in recent weeks from incoming freshman big man Khaman Maluach as he has faced off against the grown men of the Basketball Africa League. Whew, it has really been impressive.
    The guys take a break and then get into a quick conversation about the fancy new scoreboard coming to Cameron.
    And then they wrap it all up by talking about a major lawsuit that the NCAA wants to settle which could effectively end the private NIL era by making all teams actually pay the players a fair wage.
    (Audio warning -- Jason had some technical difficulties in this episode and his audio is lower than we would like. the DBR Podcast apologizes for the lower than usual standard of quality in this episode).
