After watching Greg Norman choke during the last round of this year's Masters, I was reminded of the many times I had held a large lead in a major (well, sort of major, at least in my mind) tournament, only to have it snatched away at the last moment due to forces out of my control. And then after reading about the women's golf team capturing the ACC Championship, I began to reminisce about the time I won the... no wait, that wasn't me... well how about... well, wait a second, I guess that was actually my brother. So okay, I don't have a lot of victories under my belt, but the sun was shining and I had a paper due the next day, so you guessed it-it was time for a round of golf.
"In this corner, weighing in at approximately 600 pounds, it's the L.A. Breakers, featuring Nick Van Exel, Magic Johnson and Dennis Rodman. Cedric Ceballos would be with us tonight, but he decided to take his mid-playoff-run vacation this week."
Both Clemson's and Duke's men's tennis teams were looking for a close match on Saturday to tune up for the Atlantic Coast Conference Championships, which begin this Thursday in Greenwood, S.C. Despite this wish, however, the match was nearly over before either team really got warmed up.
Ahhh! Spring is here. It's that time of year when we can once again hear the crack of the bat, the cheers of the fans (or "Hey Joe, Screw You" if you are at Shea Stadium) and get a whiff of the mixed smells of beer, cotton candy and hot dogs.
As we head into spring, I would like to take the time to give you all a bit of advice. Instead of heading down to Myrtle Beach, S.C., after finals are over, I think you should all go south to Florida. Why? Well for one, even if you break the law, you won't be punished. At least not if the NCAA has its way.
The men's lacrosse team was finally able to raise its record above the .500 mark over spring break, but it still turned out to be a disappointing week because of an 11-9 defeat at the hands of seventh-ranked Brown on Saturday, March 9th at Loyola, Md. Despite the loss, the No. 10 Blue Devils were able to bounce back, crushing Canisius College 24-9 on Tuesday at Duke Lacrosse Stadium and then blowing out Navy 15-4 on Saturday to improve to 3-2 on the season.
As sportswriters, we would have you believe that we are knowledgeable about all things under the sun. Obviously that's not true. There are, however, three things which we know about. I take that back, there are three things we think we know about-sports, members of the opposite sex and food.
The summer of 1995 was a rough one on the Duke men's basketball team as Eric Meek and Cherokee Parks embarked on their respective professional basketball careers, leaving the Blue Devils with a large question mark in the middle. Things got worse as two coaches who would have been essential in solving that problem moved their careers past the Duke basketball program. Although they left Duke at the same time, the similarities in the stories of Mike Brey and Pete Gaudet end there.
"It's tough to explain, but there was something missing," Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski said. "My mom makes really good food and she doesn't do it all by recipe. If something is missing, she knows it and she can add it. We knew it, but we didn't know how to add it today. I don't know if that's a Polock response or whatever, but something we couldn't get. And Carolina didn't cooperate by playing poorly-they played well."
I think that college basketball may be the greatest thing ever invented. This whole thing about God on the third day with the air and the water and all is fine, but if he doesn't figure out basketball by the seventh day he better get out of his Barcalounger and start doing some thinking.
The Duke men's golf team enjoyed a roller coaster ride this weekend. Unfortunately, instead of being at an amusement park, the Blue Devils were competing in the Puerto Rico Golf Classic.
In a surprise change of venues, WrestleMania held its feature event in Cameron Indoor Stadium Wednesday night.
When the UVa and Duke men's basketball teams met on Jan. 13 in Charlottesville, Va., both teams were near the bottom of the Atlantic Coast Conference, desperately looking for a win to turn their seasons around.
After going 4-7 in its 1995 campaign, the Duke football team earned its first victory of 1996 when it was able to chalk up 25 recruits for next season. The Blue Devils stayed in their traditional grazing grounds on the east coast, signing only one player west of the Mississippi. But Duke did do its best to expand its horizons by signing six players from talent-rich Florida, compared to only five from North Carolina.
WINSTON-SALEMDWhile Sunday's Duke-Wake Forest game had an important effect on Atlantic Coast Conference standings, many people were eager to watch the battle within the battle as Wake Forest's Tim Duncan faced off with Duke's Greg Newton.
WINSTON-SALEM-It was only fitting that Wake Forest retired the jersey of Rodney Rodgers after the men's basketball game at Wake Forest on Sunday afternoon. After all, it was Rodgers' 35 points that were mainly responsible for the 98-86 Demon Deacon win on Feb. 13, 1993 in Cameron that began the infamous Wake Forest winning streak over Duke.
After three and a half years of combing through ACES, I have finally found the coolest class at Duke. PE 52-Fencing. I know it doesn't sound like the greatest course to take, but it is the most fun I have had in a class, and when you look at my supposedly
In the past few weeks, the men's basketball team has been trying to repair the damage it did with an 0-4 start in the Atlantic Coast Conference, and climb back into the top echelon of the conference standings. The Blue Devils can begin their ascent of the ladder if they can conquer Georgia Tech in an ACC road game tonight.
Unfinished business. That's a fair description of how the men's lacrosse team defines last season, but that really only scratches the surface of how much potential the team has and what its own expectations are.
