Oh, brother! 3 Plumlees on Duke's front line


DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — When Duke refers to its basketball family this year they'll probably be talking about the Plumlees.

The Blue Devils' roster features three Plumlee brothers: Senior Miles and younger brothers Mason, a junior, and Marshall, a freshman. It's just the third time that's happened at a Division I school and the first time since the 1950s.

Miles Plumlee calls it "the best year for me so far already."

Matthew, Thomas and William Brennan played at Villanova in 1957-58; Bucky, Harold and Terry Bockhorn played at Dayton that season.

Each brother in the Duke trio is 6-foot-10 or taller. That adds up to 20 feet, 7 inches, and 705 pounds of Plumlees banging the boards for the sixth-ranked Blue Devils.

Duke opens Friday night against Belmont.
