Durham, N.C. — Duke’s basketball team will be the subject of an all-access show.
The eight-episode series titled “Earn Everything” was announced Thursday by the school, and it will document the Blue Devils as they prepare for the 2018-19 season and will be released in the fall.
It will follow the players and coaches from their arrival on campus this summer, through next month’s exhibition tour in Canada and into the preparations for the Champions Classic season opener against Kentucky in November.
The series will air on ESPN Plus, which will broadcast the three exhibition games in Canada.
Duke brought in the consensus No. 1 freshman class this season, led by forwards R.J. Barrett and Zion Williamson.
Oakland adds transfer Nobles
Jordan Nobles is joining Oakland’s basketball team as a graduate transfer, the school announced.
Nobles played his first three seasons at Eastern Michigan. The 6-foot-9 forward averaged 22.6 minutes a game and 4.7 points last season. He shot 38 percent from 3-point range.
Oakland says Nobles is the final addition to the roster. He’ll be the lone senior for the Golden Grizzlies.
Clemson's Brownell inks new deal
Considered a recent “hot-seat” candidate, Clemson’s Brad Brownell has the chance to become the longest-serving men’s basketball coach in Tiger history.
Brownell received a new six-year contract that will pay him $15 million through 2024. He’s spent eight seasons at Clemson, and his previous contract was through 2021.
His average salary increases to $2.5 million per year. He was scheduled to make $1.9 million this season before that bumped up to $2 million for each of the final two years of his old deal.
The 49-year-old Brownell began at Clemson in the 2010-2011 season. Should he remain there through this deal, he’ll surpass the previous best of 10 seasons held by Banks McFadden (1947-56) and Cliff Ellis (1985-94).
