Duke’s swing through Canada (Eastern Canada as one Canadian reader reminds us) is over and seems to have made an the Commonwealth.

Yes, BBN has taken note and while they seem confident - with good reason - in their team, they’re not very happy about the attention Duke has gotten this August.

We’ve seen and heard about message boards that have some, shall we say, interesting things to say about Duke. The best summation of it may be this article from Kentucky Sports Report, where the writer seems to be having a hard time with the attention Duke got this week, and primarily of course the media hype for Zion Williamson and RJ Barrett.

Kentucky fans are already gearing up for the Duke game that opens the season and honestly they’ll probably be favored.

For what it’s worth. You don’t play for the beginning of the season of course, you play for the end.

Well, unless you’re Kentucky because as we all know, the most important thing for Kentucky, as John Calipari has said, is draft night.
