According to the Dan Patrick Show, Duke practiced from 1:30 a.m. – 4:45 a.m. this morning when they arrived in Durham after being routed by Miami, 90-63. According to NCAA rules, that is not allowed:
Article 184.108.40.206.3: Countable Athletically Related Activities Between Midnight and 5 a.m.
Countable athletically related activities shall not occur between midnight and 5 a.m. (Adopted: 1/16/10)
The only exceptions?
(a) During participation in a conference championship or an NCAA championship;
(b) Participation in any competition that begins before midnight and concludes after midnight; or
(c) Participation in a promotional practice activity (e.g., first practice of the season).
UPDATE: Andy Katz is reporting that Duke associate coach Chris Collins as well as two Duke officials said Duke did not practice from 1:30 to 4:45 a.m. What a bunch of Lennay Kekuas.
