Duke Basketball Looks Promising This Season

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- Mike Krzyzewski's 30th Duke team might be his biggest.

The Hall of Fame coach has on his roster only two returning guards who arrived at Duke with scholarships -- senior Jon Scheyer and junior Nolan Smith. That's an unusual position for a program that has been dominated by guards through the years, from Bobby Hurley to J.J. Redick.

Coach K said Thursday during the team's preseason media day that for now, his starting lineup probably would include Scheyer, Smith and 6-foot-8 Kyle Singler on the perimeter with 6-foot-10 brothers Miles and Mason Plumlee in the post.

The backcourt was thinned this offseason when high-flying swingman Gerald Henderson entered the NBA draft early and Elliot Williams transferred to Memphis.
