Columnist takes on Duke Golf Course, loses miserably

(04/23/96 4:00am)

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.







Men's lacrosse improves to 3-2 despite loss to Brown

(03/18/96 5:00am)

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.



A year later: Gaudet, Brey have taken separate paths

(03/07/96 5:00am)

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.


Men's hoops searches for missing ingredient in recipe

(03/04/96 5:00am)

"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."






Football inks large recruiting class of 25

(02/13/96 5:00am)

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.



Deacon destruction! Wake wins 8th straight over Duke

(02/12/96 5:00am)

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.
