On this episode of the DBR Podcast, we are without Donald Wine, but AJ Griffin is back from injury, so we’ll take the good with the bad as Duke takes down Winston Salem State in the Blue Devils’ lone public exhibition game of the 2021-2022 season.

Speaking of AJ Griffin, we begin with a breakdown of his brief Duke debut. It does seem like he’s still getting back in shape from his injury, but we are excited by his limited showing so far.

Paolo Banchero was the star of the exhibition, scoring from near and far and showing us why he was such a hot prospect coming into Duke. Wendell Moore, Jeremy Roach, Mark Williams, and even Bates Jones showed off a bit in this easy night for Duke.

Coming back from the break, we preview this year’s edition of the DBR Podcast stats game, where we try to predict statistical outcomes for Duke at the beginning of the season. It always goes haywire, no matter how much we think we know the team.
