"The fact that he was prior military, I never knew that he was a West Point graduate," he said. "Even though I'm enlisted, it still stuck with me. It's impressive."
Senior guard Seth Curry sat out the team drills nursing a minor injury and redshirt freshman Marshall Plumlee was on crutches. Duke announced prior to the practice that Plumlee broke a bone in his foot and is out six to eight weeks.
But that didn't dampen Duke's spirit. The Devils had tremendous energy, which they attribute to the men and women in uniform.
"It was a great 24 hours to come here and see the way they live and what they go through; it was really a great experience to see this," junior guard Tyler Thornton said. "Then to come out here and practice with them here, they gave us so much energy. It was a tough morning, but when they came through the room everybody got a little extra boost of energy and it was fun."
