|My brother and I, 2005 ACC Tournament|
|Coach K cutting down the net, ACC Tournament 2005|
|Duke ~ 2005 ACC Tournament Champions|
Anyway, today Coach K and the Duke Blue Devils beat the UNC Tarheels with a final score 75-58. Duke's Nolan Smith had 20 points and 10 assists. UNC's John Henson had 10 points and 18 rebounds in the losing effort. I only caught the 2nd half, since I had plans earlier today but the Blue Devils prevailed.
I was out a few weeks ago with a couple of guys. One was a retired NBA Veteran and UNC alumnus. The other was a Duke alumnus and a current professional basketball player. We were at a fundraiser for an NBA player's foundation and as the Blue Devil walked by the UNC guy yelled, "Go to hell, Duke. Go to hell." **** For those of you familiar with the rivalry, that's not uncommon ~ but the chant is wrong. Immediately, the Duke alumnus and I both smiled and yelled back, "Go to hell, Carolina. Go to hell." We all laughed, but let's not get it twisted ~ this rivalry is serious.
Check out the tourney. If you're a fan, you owe it to yourself!
