SULAIMON’S ROLE: Veteran is Duke’s top on-ball defender

So far, Rasheed Sulaimon’s time in a Duke uniform has matched how the Blue Devils have fared as a whole.

Two years ago, as a freshman, Sulaimon played in every game, starting all but three, as Duke reached the NCAA Tournament’s Elite Eight.

Last year, struggling to find his role, Sulaimon started only 17 times, riding the bench one entire game, on a Duke team that went 26-9 and lost its only NCAA Tournament game.

Now the 6-4 guard is a junior, one of Duke’s veteran players on a team in which the play of its freshmen will go a long way towards determining how the season goes.

Sulaimon figures to have an important role but only if he’s mentally ready to accept it no matter what he’s asked to do.
