Hello Blue Devil Fans,

We have been continuing to train and take advantage of our breaks here. When there is time, you can't find a college player without their laptop trying to fit in a little work here and there with some who take midterms as well. I cannot say that it is always work though as sometimes there is some social media activity going. With our game slowly creeping in on us, we are down to one intensive training a day with the second session being much lighter. Now that everyone is getting settled in, the play is really improving and coming together.

We have also had a bit more time to venture to the markets and stores nearby. It was refreshing to be able to get out of the resort and see new sights. The free time has allowed for more bonding time which has been nice. All the opposing teams are starting to come to the tournament so; it is starting to feel more real as time goes on. We are excited to compete in this tournament!

As for now, that is mainly the gist. Stay tuned for more information as the games start come upon us.

Go Duke!
