Duke and Kansas both remain viable options for uncommitted 2014 McDonald’s and Jordan Brand All-American Myles Turner despite the fact that both already have committed bigs in this class.
The 6-foot-11 Turner out of Euless (TX) Trinity has now taken officials to those two along with Ohio State and Oklahoma State, and will take his last visit to Texas, David Turner told SNY.tv. It’s possible he could also take an unofficial to Kentucky. To read more of this story, click here
Myles Turner, Luke Kennard and Chase Jeter are among the big names who will visit Duke this weekend for the North Carolina game on Saturday.
The 6-foot-11 Turner is the top uncommitted player in the Class of 2014 and will trip to Kansas Wednesday and then Duke on the weekend. He has already visited Ohio State and Oklahoma State officially, and Texas A&M and SMU unofficially.
“It would be great to have him,” Allen told SNY.tv after Florida the state semifinals. “We already have the No. 1 recruiting class in the nation with the four guys we have right now, and he would put us over the top.” To read more of this story, click here
CHICAGO—The biggest game of the year lived up to its billing.
In a four-overtime slugfest, Curie prevailed over Whitney Young 69-66 Friday night on a corner three by senior Kamar Marshall in the game’s final seconds. The Condors hoisted their first-ever Chicago Public League championship after an extremely close contest that will go down in history as one of the most exciting games to ever take place in the state of Illinois.
With Syracuse and Duke set to face off Saturday at Cameron Indoor, it will mark the second meeting this season between two of the top freshmen in America and the two top rookies in the ACC: Syracuse’s Tyler Ennis and Duke’s Jabari Parker.
Wednesday’s two Chicago Public League semifinal games at Chicago State University produced the matchup that not only the city, but the entire country has been waiting for.
Jahlil Okafor and Whitney Young will face Cliff Alexander and Curie in Friday’s city championship game.
It almost never materialized. Both teams narrowly advanced, a testament to the Public League’s depth and talent. The city playoffs have been full of heavyweight battles, perhaps none more dramatic than Wednesday night’s games. To read more of this story, click here
Both schools knew it and so did their fan bases. And for one last time in the regular season as conference foes, there was an extra aura in Cameron Indoor Stadium.
“That was vintage Cameron, man,” Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski said after No. 8 Duke eked out a 69-67 win over Maryland in the Terps’ last game there before moving to the Big Ten next season. “That was one for the ages today.” To read more of this story, click here
Chase Jeter is set to visit Duke March 8 for the North Carolina game and his AAU coach says Duke “loves” the 6-foot-10 Las Vegas Bishop Gorman big man.
“Of course, Duke loves Chase,” Clay Williams of Dream Vision told SNY.tv. “Duke really likes Chase Jeter.”
He added: “Chase is a 3.85 student so Chase is a very academic-oriented. His mother is a teacher, his dad works for the Sheriff’s department. He has great structure and Chase is humble so I’m sure academics really matter to Chase as well. He’s a well-spoken kid. To read more of this story, click here
