5. Duke basketball sophomore center Mark Williams
The first thing I noticed about Mark Williams’s introduction was how large of a human he is. He came out to “Way 2 Sexy” by Drake, Future, and Young Thug.
Williams was the third Duke member to rock shades during his intro. And his dance moves matched well with the lyrics and beat of the song, so I have to give him some additional points for that. Although you might think he would be, the big man is not an overly awkward dancer on the dance floor.
6. Duke basketball freshman guard Jaylen Blakes
The freshman out of New Jersey brought a ton of energy with his introduction. Jaylen Blakes chose “Party Up” by DMX (RIP), a song that is guaranteed to get the crowd going. If you have ever been to a sporting event of any kind, there’s a good chance they’ve played this song throughout the stadium.
The Cameron Crazies seemed to enjoy it as it is a song that everyone knows and can sing the lyrics to. My only issue is that Blakes’ dance didn’t sync with the rhythm of the song. It was like he decided to do that particular dance before selecting a song. His dance mimicked some version of “The Dougie,” but it was a cool dance nonetheless.
