IMPOSSIBLE TO PICK.
Each week we’ll bring you the AP’s college basketball rankings along with serious, measured, professional analysis. Let’s get to Week 9!
The No. 3 Duke Blue Devils defeated Virginia Tech Tuesday night, 85-57. Fans at Cameron Indoor were treated to a pretty competitive game in the first half, but as you can tell, it got out of hand quickly for the Hokies. But while things were close, this particular fan wasn’t having any of it. You only live once, and this fan needs Duke to squeeze in as many victories as they can.
Duke beat N.C. State last night 98-85, avenging an earlier loss. Duke’s student section was spirited, as it normally is. In a less normal development, however, some accusations were levied at the student section during and after the game – accusations that, if true, would brand the student section less as “spirited” and more as “terrible.” But was the outcry justified?
The 1980-81 season was Mike Krzyzewski’s first as the head coach of the Duke men’s basketball team. The little-known coach had spent the five previous seasons at Army and Tobacco Road was squarely in the hands of already legendary UNC coach Dean Smith. Coach K has since cemented his reputation as one of the greatest coaches in NCAA history, but had to do it without one Michael Jordan, to whom he wrote this letter after Jordan opted for Smith, Carolina and the Tar Heels.
Another basketball-heavy evening to look back upon. Let’s get to it, so you might drink from the glorious fountain of (sports news) knowledge.
It’s basketball season. And soon enough, it’s going to be basketball-and-nothing-else season, so you best get used to these morning-after roundups looking like this. Not a basketball fan? Cherish that football you have left, is all I can say. Because today, we’re going all hoops all the time. Let’s get this train rollin’.
Currently, UNC-Duke bragging rights belong with UNC after the Tar Heels dispatched the Blue Devils 88-70 on Saturday. And UNC’s student government took full advantage of these bragging rights… maybe a little too much.
