Duke has lost its entire starting group after freshman big man Wendell Carter Jr. announced he will declare for the NBA draft and forgo his final three years of college eligibility.
It was such an honor to coach Wendell, Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said in a statement. He and his family were a true joy to have in our program and they’ll always be in our program. He had a sensational freshman year — a double-double guy — and he has so much more potential. He’s going to keep getting better, because he’s talented and he has the best attitude. He really represented himself, his family and Duke in a first-class manner, and whoever gets him is going to be very lucky.
Game Mens Doug Gilmour Jersey Carter told The Undefeated that he has already interviewed five NBA agents and will be hiring one. He is uncertain if he will participate in the NBA pre-draft camp in Chicago.

I was pleased with them tonight, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said of his players. They executed the game plan wonderfully. Their physicality was great. We were aggressive, played very well. But the ball has to go in the basket. That’s the difference in the ballgame. They shot [48.4] percent from 3. I don’t know what we shot — 14 percent, 4-for-28. That’s tough to overcome.
