Told myself I would take a 2 week break from following and reporting on Duke Basketball. Well.. while on vacation I got word that Duke recruit Grayson Allen is playing in Myrtle Beach at the Beach Ball Classic Tourney. Follow @DukeReport on Twitter as I will drop in and report on his game at 7pm today. New Years Eve has a lot going on for Duke fans. The Duke football team will be playing Texas AM in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl in Atlanta that night while the Duke Basketball team will be playing Elon in Greensboro during the afternoon. My buddy Chris will be at the football game in Atlanta taking pics of the game. Be sure to check www.dukereport.com the following days to see some of his work. I'll be reporting from the basketball game in Greensboro on Twitter @DukeReport. ACC play starts for Duke on Jan. 7th vs Georgia Tech at Cameron Indoor Stadium. I will be at that game as well. Look for an article out soon on New Years Resolutions for Duke Fans. Happy New Year and Go Duke!
I would like to wish everybody a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! If you are a Duke fan and have followed this site or my articles @DukeReport... thank you! If you are not a Duke fan and still follow...that's cool too! It has been a fun ride this season so far, and will continue to be with ACC season starting up in January. So far this year we have made a Duke practice, CTC, home games of Davidson, Florida Atlantic, Vermont, and Gardner Webb. I also made the Duke Miami home football game. I will be taking a little time off from Duke road trips these next 2 weeks as I take another trip to follow my other passion (chasing the Endless Summer) and will head to...the Beach! But I will be back in action Tuesday December 31 at the game in Greensboro against Elon. Follow @DukeReport on Twitter as I will send updates at that game. I will also be at the home game against Georgia Tech on January 7th (possibly hanging with the Crazies.) I hope to make a few more ACC games as well. I will also be at ESPN College Game Day at Cameron Indoor Stadium on March 8th for Duke vs. Unc. I'm hoping to be at the UNC game but...time will tell. Future looks bright for Duke fans. I have some very cool articles coming soon for @DukeReport www.dukereport.com so stay tuned. Links below will take you to some of the articles and videos I have done.

If you didn't think tomorrow's game against Michigan was big, you better think again! Pic above was taken by my buddy and fellow Cameron Crazie @ShakerSamman of Kville tonight. As you can see tent city is going strong in December for this game. I myself am looking forward to what the Cameron Crazies will bring tomorrow night when Duke battles Michigan. Let's not forget former Duke recruit and current Michigan player Mitch McGary will be in house. I'm confident the Crazies will welcome him as well ;) Here's looking to a great game tomorrow night when Duke battles Michigan as part of the ACC-Big Ten Challenge. Go Duke!
