The Duke Blue Devils enter the 2015-16 season with a great chance to repeat as national champions, and five-star freshman power forward Brandon Ingram is a big reason why. As was posted on the team’s official Instagram earlier today, the 6-foot-9, 190 pound Ingram showed just how high he can jump.
Duke won a title last year with the help of stars like Jahlil Okafor, Quinn Cook, Justise Winslow and Tyus Jones, all of whom either graduated or were drafted into the NBA. This year, despite those key losses, Duke has fully reloaded with top prospects like Ingram, Chase Jeter, Luke Kennard and Derryck Thornton, not to mention returning players like Matt Jones, Grayson Allen and Amile Jefferson.
Needless to say, with Ingram’s leaping abilities, expect him to be on the receiving end of multiple alley-oops once Duke opens its season against the MAAC’s Siena Saints at Cameron Indoor Stadium on November 13.
