Much to Mike Krzyzewski’s consternation, the process of putting together this year’s Duke basketball team to help it play at its best is taking far longer than the coach would prefer. The staff had a week between losing 74-67 at Virginia Tech on Jan. 12 and Tuesday night’s loss at Pittsburgh.

Immediately after Clemson’s James Skalski speared Justin Fields on New Year’s Day – we dress it up as “targeting” these days – Pablo Fields took a phone call. A friend of the family, a doctor, was reaching out to Fields’ father, bearing a scrap of cold comfort. “She said he should be fine, the spleen is on the other side,” Pablo recalled. Plenty of other internal parts were still in play, ...
