The Herald-Sun has an article up about leadership on this year's team, saying that it comes from players of all ages and of course the staff as well.
And that's true; the team is quite egalitarian in that respect.
But what isn't touched on here, and what really should be, is the role Quinn Cook has played on this year's team.
A lot of the focus naturally goes to Jahlil Okafor, Justise Winslow and Tyus Jones, and that's fine. They're extraordinarily advanced for such young players.
But Duke's MVP is Cook. He's been an exemplary leader and an absolutely reliable presence when someone needs to step up. If he keeps this up, he's going to be as good a captain as Duke has seen in a while.
On a side note, or maybe not so much of one, we've wondered for a while where we'd see Jon Scheyer's coaching influence. Given Cook's elevated play, we think we've figured it out.
