The news keeps coming for Duke Basketball, so we come to you less than 24 hours later for an emergency Episode 259 of the DBR Podcast. Duke Basketball has made the decision to cancel the remainder of their non-conference games. The rescheduled game against the Gardner Webb Bulldogs was canceled, and previously postponed games against the Elon Phoenix and the Charleston Southern Buccaneers will not be rescheduled.
Jason, Sam, and Donald jump on to discuss Coach K’s decision and the reasoning behind, namely the ability to let the players take a short break for the holidays, and they take to task anyone who questions the decision because they think it’s cool to hate on Duke. The crew defends K and the program for doing this and lets everyone else know that safety and the amelioration of the mental health of the players is the most important thing during this difficult year.
The crew will be back over the weekend to preview the upcoming game against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
