UNC Crushes Duke
Duke has been regarded as one of the best basketball colleges in the last twenty years, but their rivals North Carolina would do anything to make them look bad.
After the massive win by UNC at Duke, the rivalry of these two colleges is something to laugh about. It really doesn’t seem possible for a win to happen in this setting. Here are some of my ideas of why Duke had an upside in this game. First of all, the Blue Devils were in their comfortable position playing at Cameron Indoor Stadium, where they have a very large home court fan base. Second, it was senior night at Duke for a very special player, Miles Plumlee. So, why did Duke lose? They simply weren’t ready to play. The Devils were making bad passes left and right, along with being stressed out because of the large lead by the Tar Heels at the beginning of the game (22-5.) The thing about this win is it probably scares the crap out of NCAA Tournament bound teams.
Even though Duke had the advantages with the home court and senior night, UNC is definitely one of the best shows is basketball. I heard Dick Vitale say tonight that he would rather have the Tar Heels than the Charlotte Bobcats. UNC is certainly Final Four bound, we will just have to see when they get there if they can keep up with other teams that are just as talented.
I have never seen either Coach K or Doc Rivers so mad during a basketball game. K looked like he wanted to kill someone and Doc is like, “man I completely wasted my time.”
