Duke senior center Marshall Plumlee spoke at the men's basketball team's banquet on Saturday night. It was an emotionally charged speech, where he honored fellow teammates and coaches, and noted how it was the end of an eight-year era where either he or brothers Miles and Mason were members of the team.

Miles, Mason, and Marshall Plumlee helped lead Duke to one ACC conference regular season championship, three ACC conference tournament championships, and two NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament Championships between 2008 and 2016. Miles is currently a center on the Milwaukee Bucks roster, while Mason is a center with the Portland Trailblazers

Plumlee was a member of Duke's Army ROTC program, and will become a commissioned Army officer when he leaves school. He could still pursue an NBA career while serving as a member of the Army National Guard or Reserves.
