Duke keeps adding Plumlees, needs them to produce

Duke is adding yet another Plumlee, according to the Asheville Citizen-Times, and no ACC team has ever had three brothers on the roster at the same time.

7-foot Marshall Plumlee is a senior at Asheville's Christ School, and would be joining Mason (a rising sophomore) and Miles (a rising junior) in 2011 at Duke.

Aside from the novelty of it, Duke will need real contributions from the Plumlees going forward.

Many people, including me, thought Mason was essential to Duke's hopes in 2010, but Brian Zoubek secured a post position and the contributions from the Plumlees dwindled as the season progressed. Mason played nine minutes and Miles three in the championship win over Butler, but neither scored.

Mason has the chance to be one of the ACC's better players. And Miles should be a decent banger/rebounder/defender. Their efforts this year are critical to Duke's chances.
