Eleven states and Washington, D.C.
April 4 was Sean May’s 21st birthday, but it was Roy Williams who received the greatest gift in North Carolina’s 75-70 win over Illinois in Monday’s national championship game. Most Carolina fans failed to realize the benefactor of Roy’s present, and surely no one thanked him.
J.J. Redick’s career has been full of clutch moments. His 23 points in the last 10:05 of the 2003 ACC Tournament title game against N.C. State was one of the most heroic performances in the history of conference tournaments.
I’m tired of hearing how great Raymond Felton is.
Despite losing expected starters Luol Deng and Shaun Livingston to the NBA, Duke has managed to accumulate a 16-1 record and a share of first place in the ACC, the most competitive conference in the country. But the real fun for the Blue Devils has not yet begun.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — While the Northeast region experienced a snowy blizzard Saturday night, J.J. Redick heated up the Deep South in one of the most impressive shooting exhibitions in recent ACC history. Redick hit a career-high eight three-pointers on his way to a season-high 31 points in a dominating 88-56 win for the men’s basketball team (15-0, 5-0 in the ACC) over Florida State (10-9, 2-4).
CORAL GABLES, Fla. — With 17:36 remaining in the second-half, Duke junior J.J. Redick collected the ball from senior Daniel Ewing and squared up to the basket, toeing the three-point line. With all eyes on the most dangerous outside shooter in college basketball, Ewing unassumingly cut to the hoop, hidden from the Miami defense. Noticing his fellow co-captain, Redick lofted the ball towards the goal. Ewing extended his athletic frame—then stretched even further to catch the high pass nearly two feet above the basket to slam the ball through the net.

With one game to go, the football team has compiled eight wins and 38 losses in my time at Duke. This means the seniors on this football team lost 30 more games than they won, and fifth-year seniors lost 50 games before they won nine. Despite these facts, I encourage everyone to show up early for Saturday’s game against North Carolina to support a group of young men who never gave up even in face of the greatest adversity.
The tides of Duke basketball may be turning.

In his weekly press conference, head coach Ted Roof announced that senior co-captain Giuseppe Aguanno will miss Saturday’s game against Florida State due to injury. Aguanno leads the Blue Devils with 67 tackles this season and he is now the third defensive captain to miss playing time due to injury this season. The 6-foot-1, 240-pound linebacker suffered a leg injury in the fourth quarter of Duke’s 24-22 loss to Wake Forest last Saturday.
GREENSBORO — As local legend goes, angry spirits haunted the city of Greensboro during the Great Depression. Many people died from despair and lack of food and supplies as they faced the worst economy in the nation’s history. Few could even afford proper burials for the dead. The spirits, bitter about their deaths and lack of graves, tormented residents of Greensboro at all hours of the day, stealing their valuables and disrupting their sleep patterns. The frightening era had no end in sight until Priest Eddie Howie McMillian came along.
Diehard Duke basketball fans may be concerned that their beloved team has been picked as low as fifth in preseason ACC polls. Rest assured, Blue Devil faithful, there is little reason to worry about the 2004-05 men’s basketball team.

With the drama of the baseball playoffs and the excitement of the NFL season, former NBA star Scottie Pippen’s retirement last week went by with little notice. Pippen’s career was brilliant: The NBA named him one of its 50 greatest players of all time during the league’s 50th season, and Pippen was Michael Jordan’s sidekick for six NBA championships in the 1990s.
Although most professors at Duke are finding the complications in publishing only slightly problematic, the situation is bordering on a crisis throughout higher education.
Freshman running back Justin Boyle’s 83-yard touchdown burst in the waning moments of Duke’s 28-10 win over The Citadel can be, metaphorically speaking, interpreted in two different ways. For optimists, the true freshman’s run could be sign that the Blue Devils are finally running away from their recent struggles. For others, Boyle’s head-first scamper could symbolize Duke’s dive into the buzzsaw that is its remaining schedule.
