• This isn't the first blog to break out the "Jon Scheyer in 75 Seconds" video that a Duke improv group produced, but I did get a chance to ask Scheyer for the backstory on Tuesday. (If you haven't seen it yet, it's a spoof of his legendary 21-points-in-75-seconds outburst from his senior year of high school at Glenbrook North in Illinois.)
He said he didn't have a hand in writing it -- other than throwing in the Brian Zoubek/Borat cameo in the first scene -- but "was more than happy to do it" when the group approached him in the spring. "Then it popped up on YouTube, and pretty much everybody's seen it," Scheyer said. "They're all over me about it, mostly about going to the Freeman Center [for Jewish Life] and coming out with the beard." Scheyer is Jewish, and in one part of the skit emerges from Duke's in full Rabbinical garb.
• This might be old news to Blue Devils fans, but Scheyer alerted us to the fact that there's actually a better Duke-related clip on the site: Chris Collins' high-school team's highlight video -- he also went to Glenbrook North -- set to the MC Hammer classic 2 Legit 2 Quit:
Said Scheyer, "[Collins] didn't want to say it, but he's one of the guys who made the video."
