Very nice, glad to hear it. I hope we are able to flex our muscle on both ends and go deep in the tourney.

Yeah I think we will be running up and down non-stop. They were putting on a 5-man full-court press throughout practice, so I think they will try to dictate the pace of the game on both ends of the floor.

Good to hear, looking forward to seeing how they all fit together. Would love to see an up-tempo offense this year.

No concerns whatsoever. He was just stretching it out during the scrimmage portion, otherwise he was full-go.
After practice I asked him if he was OK and he said "yeah i'm good" without hesitation.

Great information and thanks for providing some insight on the open practice. I planned on going but family weekend at UNC-W prevented me from going. Very hyped about this year. I hope the team as a whole can stay healthy and gel. Looking forward to the return of Dawkins and I hope he can become productive. Can't wait to see Parker and Hood in action. You said Hood cramped up....are there any health concerns moving forward for him or does he seem to be completely ready for full throttle?

I'm sorry but this post is about Duke, not UNC.

Yeah man, I'm so excited! This team will run like K's Olympic squads -- no true back-to-the-basket post man, but tons of interchangeable parts, ready to adapt to whatever the game dictates. During most of practice, they pressed full-court with all 5 players the entire time, immediately after each made basket.
This season is going to be a blur! We will play like an NBA team, with NBA talent. Ready for a HUGE 2013-14 season!
