Cook Ready to Take Duke to the Top
March 12, 2013, 3:57 pm
The Duke Blue Devils are ranked #2 in the nation right behind Gonzaga heading into the ACC tournament. It's possible that if Duke wins the ACC championship they will be the overall #1 seed in the NCAA tournament.
Duke PG Quinn Cook joined The Bald Faced Truth to give perspective heading into the NCAA postseason.
To win the NCAA national championship a basketball team needs to gel at the right time. If Duke heads into the NCAA tournament as a top three overall seed it could spell trouble for the rest of the field.
"I don't think we're at our peak yet," Cook said about Duke's performance. "We're still getting good chemistry back with our main guys but we're playing good basketball."
Duke is fortunate to have one of the greatest college basketball minds as their head coach in Mike Krzyzewski. He built Duke into a perennial national championship contender and has taken home the title four times.
"He's the same all year," Quinn replied when asked by John whether Coach K changes his approach to coaching when the ACC and NCAA tournaments start. "Coach is focused right now."
Quinn also talks about his relationship with Blazers guard and former Duke player Nolan Smith.
