Danny's gone, but Dolce is still a mean Devi
By DOUG HOOGERVORST
"I want to let everyone know that
we' re really pleased that Danny Ferry
is no longer with our program, that
we're looking forward to playing a
couple of freshmen and having more
of a challenge than we've had the
last couple of years." Mike
Krzyzewski, head coach of the Duke
Don't take Krzyzewski seriously,
though. The Duke head coach would
most likely give up his first-born child
to have Ferry back for another four
seasons. However, that violates
NCAA regulations on recruiting, so
Ferry will remain in pastaland this
What Coach K does have back for
the 1989-90 season is an experienced
frontline, a freshman point guard and
good team quickness and depth.
"I really like my squad,"
Krzyzewski said. "I think our team
can be an exciting team. It's a good
group of kids, but they are kids. We're
going to have to depend a lot on the
The young guys or more spe
cifically, guy referred to is fresh
man guard Bobby Hurley.
Hurley, a 6-foot Jersey City na
tive, was handed the point guard start
ing job on Oct. 15, and Coach K has
liked what he's seen of his frosh so
much that he's changed his vaunted
"We're changing our system some
what to run the court and to take
advantage of Hurley's abilities,"
Krzyzewski said. "I really like Hurley,
and I think you're going to like him,
too. He's great in the open court."
Team captain Robert Brickey said
that playing with the frosh has been a
pleasure thus far. "Bob isn't very
vocal, but you like to play with him
because he just likes to play."
In addition to Hurley in the
backcourt, the Blue Devils return
senior non-transfer Phil Henderson.

The lanky 6-4 shooting guard played
havoc with the Duke coaching staff
over the summer, declaring he would
transfer to Illinois and then deciding
to stay at Duke a month and a half
Krzyzewski said the debacle has
not effected the team, and it is over
in the minds of the players and the
"When he said he was leaving, it
was over for me," Krzyzewski said.
"Once the thing was done, it was
Good luck, and if we can help, we
will. Then a month and a half later,
he was back in, and it was handled
correctly with all the players, the staff
and the school administration."
If the episode is truly out of the
minds of the team, Henderson can
really help with his athletic ability,
outside snooting and defense. The
senior needs to improve his ball han
dling (99 turnovers to 93 assists), but
his experience should take some pres
sure off of Hurley.
When Henderson and Hurley need
breathers, Krzyzewski will have a
choice of junior guardforward Greg
Koubek, sophomore Brian Davis and
freshman Billy McCaffrey.
Koubek, who slumped all of last
season, has learned to relax over the
summer and looks much improved,
Coach K said.
"Probably the biggest surprise in
the preseason so far has been Koubek.
He's just playing like a very confi
dent player, which he should because
he is a good player," Krzyzewski said.
The 6-6 Davis may be used as a
swingman, similar to Koubek. The
sophomore has a year of experience,
good quickness and plays tough de
fense. McCaffrey will get minutes this
