The Duke Blue Devils have been in China to play some exhibition games against the Chinese National Team “II” — a group of up-and-coming young Chinese who are expected to be reserves on the 2016 national team.

On Monday, Yao Ming dropped by the Blue Devils’ hotel in Beijing to say hello to the team and visit with Mike Krzyzewski, Duke’s legendary coach.
