Duke freshman Marques Bolden's first name isn't pronounced how you think.

Dana O'Neil ESPN Senior Writer 

Amile Jefferson, healthy and ready to play, is chatting with Jeff Goodman now. He told me earlier that his goal is to teach a young Duke team what it means to be "worthy" to win.

No timetable for exact return, but rehab going well and it sure sounds as though Harry Giles on schedule to be cleared soon for full-contact practice and be ready for the opener.

Dana O'Neil ESPN Senior Writer 

Duke's Harry Giles just told Jeff Goodman that he can cook "a hamburger, but not anything you'd make for a date or anything." Giles' personality is as big as his game.

Grayson Allen said he has dropped 10 pounds from last season. "I feel much quicker," Allen said. Played at about 210 last year, is back down to 200 -- which is what he came in as a freshman.

This year's ACC could be deepest yet

Duke is at the top. North Carolina, Virginia, Louisville and Syracuse will be close behind. The ACC is always king in college basketball, but this year's league could be deeper than ever.

Jeff Goodman ESPN Insider 

OK, maybe Frank Jackson really is 6-4. Maybe even 6-5 with the hair.

Jeff Goodman ESPN Insider 

Jayson Tatum just told me that his roommate Harry Giles can't cook and doesn't clean the bathroom. Can't wait to hear Giles' response.

For now, just me and the hum of the lights at Cameron Indoor Stadium. Soon enough that will change.

Transcript of Coach K on CNBC on NCAA decision to pull championship events this year from North Carolina: "Yeah, yeah, it's embarrassing for our state that this has happened. Our state has gone through, the economic stuff in our state as a result, not just of losing business, you know, events - image. How much do all these companies, states, areas spend on image? Our image is being tarnished. And it's embarrassing. My A.D. came out with a great statement, Kevin White last night, that I'm totally supportive of. It's sad, really, it's sad for our state."

NCAA move strikes chord for many in N.C.

Reaction out of North Carolina was swift, widespread and ran the gamut Monday in the wake of the NCAA's removal of seven championship events from the state.

Andy Katz ESPN Senior Writer 

Statement from Duke AD Kevin White: Carolina "We agree with the NCAA's decision. Our position has been clear on this matter, which is that this legislation is discriminatory, troubling and embarrassing. We deplore any efforts to deprive individuals, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, of legal protection and rights. We will always be committed to diversity and inclusion, and applaud any efforts to ensure that those values are protected and enacted at all times, and in all places in the state of North Carolina."

ESPN 100 No. 27 Matt Coleman takes his official visit to Duke this weekend.

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

The NCAA tournament was one of seven championship events the NCAA removed from the state of North Carolina for 2017 due to the HB2 law. That means for just the third time since 2003 Duke or North Carolina will not play at least one NCAA game within state borders. That means a bit more to the Tar Heels than Blue Devils. Carolina is 33-1 all-time in the NCAA tournament in the state. Duke is 34-6, which includes a 2014 first round loss to Mercer in Raleigh.
