9. Duke basketball freshman forward Paolo Banchero
It’s not easy being the first player introduced. But since Paolo Banchero is a freshman and has a last name starting with B, the Seattle native had to be the first to bring the energy.
Banchero went with “Who run it” — a freestyle — by G Herbo. It’s a high-energy song, and the Cameron Crazies seemed to be into it. I like that he incorporated a hat and sunglasses to add some additional flavor.
I will have to dock Paolo Banchero some points, though, since the hat didn’t seem to fit very well. He was holding on to it the whole time he was exchanging high fives with the fans.
10. Duke basketball junior forward Wendell Moore
Wendell Moore had one of the strongest ovations from the crowd. The Crazies always seem to cheer a little louder for the more experienced players. He went with “Ski” — a song that features Young Thug and Gunna.
Moore executed the “Ski” dance well, although the co-captain could have gotten a little more into it. I am not saying the dance was lazy, but it could have had a little more juice.
