"I get excited enough about basketball season as it is, but this Guide has been on my screen for weeks now and I'm more excited than ever. Not just about Duke, but the whole league. There are some truly unique and remarkable stats in this book, enough to make you just itch for the games to begin and see how the players do this year. I think my favorite article is the one on athletes and social media, though. I've read it three times already! Great photos, great writing, and lots of both. This is essential. " PlanBee

Dave Telep says he's the missing piece to a national championship team. He'll give Duke tremendous options with Amile Jefferson, Rodney Hood, Alex Murphy and Semi Ojeleye, along with Quinn Cook, Rasheed Sulaimon and Matt Jones.

What's not really being said is that with guys like Parker, Sulaimon and Ojeleye, Duke is putting together a group of kids with immense character to match their talent.
