The Blue Devils could not come up with a victory on the hardwood Saturday, but there was one winning team honored on the court of Cameron Indoor Stadium.
At halftime of Duke's 95-91 loss to Notre Dame, the Blue Devil football team was honored on the court for their 44-41 victory against Indiana in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl Dec. 26. In a report released Jan. 3 by CBSSports, the game—which ended in Hoosier kicker Griffin Oakes missing a 38-yard field goal in overtime—was ranked as the second-best bowl game out of 40.
Pinstripe Bowl executive director Mark Holtzmann was there in person to honor head coach David Cutcliffe and the rest of the Duke squad. The entire team came onto the court wearing matching shirts to gather around the Pinstripe Bowl trophy and pose for pictures.
The Blue Devils named Zac Roper as their new offensive coordinator Jan. 8 and tabbed Jim Bridge to replace him as the special teams coordinator for the 2016 season, when they will attempt to qualify for a fifth consecutive bowl game.
