As you no doubt realize, yesterday at Duke was a day mostly dedicated to preparing for and then watching the Duke v.s. UNC men’s basketball game. I have the dubious distinction of being one of the very few undergraduates at Duke who has never attended an athletic event, nor watched a full game on television. Basketball is unavoidable here, but I certainly do try.
Wednesday night, the 249th edition of the greatest rivalry in college basketball occurred and Barack Obama made an appearance at Cameron Indoor Stadium. Why in the world is Zion Williamson’s left sneaker all anybody can talk about right now?
The narrative heading into Duke’s rematch with Syracuse was supposed to be about the Blue Devils’ quest to avenge their first home loss of the season, an overtime thriller that occurred without Cam Reddish and Tre Jones for most of the game.
Following weeks of anticipation, Duke's home game against North Carolina did not go as planned, as the Blue Devils fell to the Tar Heels 88-72 Wednesday evening. The Blue Zone breaks down three key takeaways, three key stats and looks forward for the Duke squad:
I don’t just tent for the Carolina game. Yes, the game is usually the highlight of the tenting season, but I wouldn’t tent if I didn’t enjoy spending time bonding with 11 of my friends. But I am also a die hard fan, and as a Duke student, I really enjoy cheering for all of my fellow Blue Devils. But we want to be the center of attention, and often our self-centeredness comes at the expense of our peers.
Introduction: I submit this statement as the director of the new Asian American Studies Program and as a representative of the Department of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies. I also submit this statement as an alumna of Trinity and a former student activist with a mandate from our current students, in the wake of the discriminatory biostatistics incident, to call Duke’s faculty and Duke’s leadership to action.
As Duke has dived head first in the one-and-done era, Blue Devil squads of recent memory have been consistently critiqued for one key shortcoming: lack of depth.
In the wake of freshman phenom Zion Williamson's injury against North Carolina Wednesday in which his Nike shoe tore to shreds, the shoe company has issued a statement.
After freshman superstar Zion Williamson went down for the game in the opening seconds, No. 1 Duke fell 88-72 to archrival No. 8 North Carolina at Cameron Indoor Stadium Wednesday night. The Chronicle asked students for their thoughts after the loss.
My dad and brother flew in this weekend for the N.C. State game, and with them here for only 24 hours, we tried to visit as many Durham restaurants as our stomachs could handle.
The Blue Devils fell hard to North Carolina after Zion Williamson went down on the opening possession.
Along with former President Barack Obama, a slew of celebrities attended Wednesday’s game between No. 1 Duke and No. 8 North Carolina at Cameron Indoor Stadium.
I’ll start with a thought experiment. The recent Chronicle editorial board piece that addressed the Ilhan Omar controversy included the following line: “The tweet drew some deserved criticism for her admittedly ill-conceived wording, and Omar subsequently offered an apology.”
Former President Barack Obama is in Cameron Indoor Stadium for this year's Duke-North Carolina game.
Without Williamson in their ranks, Duke struggled mightily against North Carolina, heading into the locker room trailing 42-32. Here are five observations from Duke's first half against the Tar Heels:
Cameron was buzzing at the opening tip. Barack Obama entered the building minutes before, and numerous hype videos had helped fire up the Crazies, who had stood around for two hours waiting for the game to start.
A few years ago, a group of students at my high school started a blog inspired by Humans of New York, where they compiled photos and stories of students and teachers. I was happy about this because I love reading Humans of New York stories, stories ranging from trying to fulfill the American dream to having a mother that’s an activist to writing a play about an ex-girlfriend. However, when I looked at the blog for my high school, there weren’t the compelling stories and insights that I expected. There were just pictures of people I knew with vague generalizations such as, “I love sports at this high school and how competitive it is” and “I’ve had some really influential teachers.”
Trustee J.B. Pritzker, Trinity ‘87 and governor of Illinois, recently signed a bill that will increase the state’s minimum wage to $15 per hour in the next six years.
Thank you for soliciting our memories on the 50th anniversary of the Allen Building takeover. One of this past week’s events nearly brought me to tears. I viewed the library exhibit and attended a discussion at the Mary Lou Williams Center, where I again saw the list of demands by the African American students. One was to increase the population of black students at Duke to 29 percent by 1973. This demand was so powerful to me because I matriculated to Duke in— you guessed it—1973. That demand, read today, almost felt like they asked for me by name.
Duke students will no longer be able to use their food points at the Washington Duke Inn and Golf Club after this semester.
