The Duke Blue Devils have a star recruit in the building tonight for their contest against #5 Miami. Can they put on a show for Winslow?
Justise Winslow, a 5-star small forward in the class of 2014, is in attendance for tonight’s contest against the Miami Hurricanes. The star recruit shared this tweet just 23 minutes ago:

Winslow, a product of St. Johns in Houston, Texas, currently has 14 schools listed on his RIVALS profile, all of which are highly respected programs. The young man seems pretty excited about sporting Duke blue, though, and he appears to have a close relationship with current Duke freshman Rasheed Sulaimon (both men played on the Houston Hoops AAU team).
A few years ago, Duke was ran out of their own building by North Carolina with Harrison Barnes, sporting a Duke shirt, in attendance. I’m not saying that was the pivotal moment in Barnes choosing to be a Tar Heel over being a Blue Devil, but the loss certainly didn’t help Duke. Considering this, it probably would help if Duke performed a little better than they did the last time they faced Miami, tonight’s opponent, an embarrassing 90-63 blowout in Coral Gables.
