Welcome Andre!

Although it hasn't been officially announced, we understand that Andre
Buckner has been offered and has accepted a scholarship from Duke to join the Blue Devils
as the sixth incoming freshman. We ran into Andre at the Washington Duke Inn on Friday
evening, and the reports that he's 6'0" are exceedingly generous. We'd guess he's
around 5'9". From those who have seen him, Buckner is said to posesses excellent
speed, good ball-handling ability, and no NBA dreams. Andre's content to being a back-up
point guard at Duke. He's also a very good student.

From thinking about being a walk-on at Tennessee to receiving a full
scholarship from Duke where he can be part of a team with great tradition and can get a
Duke degree. What a terrific opportunity for the kid. Congratulations and welcome!
