A look at Duke women's basketball's potential path through the ACC tournament

(03/07/24 7:28pm)

Following a regular season that exceeded expectations complete with big-time wins against tough teams like No. 10 N.C. State and No. 11 Virginia Tech, the Blue Devils are now headed to the 2024 ACC tournament. Held less than an hour from Durham in Greensboro Coliseum, Duke will likely be coming up against some of the top squads in the conference in rematches from the regular season as it heads into a stacked playoff bracket. 

Beyond the walls of fear

“O Captain! My Captain!” I cheered victoriously as John Keating’s students climbed onto their desks to (literally) stand in solidarity with him. Mr. Keating may have been fired — wrongly accused of instigating the death of a student — but he had left an indelible mark of courage on the young boys he had so vivaciously taught. As the end credits of “Dead Poets Society” rolled, I thought of college. In a few months, I would be leaving behind the comfort of my home and faced with the same choice as the boys from Welton Academy: I could either stick to the script I had clung to thus far — the assembly line of advanced classes and good grades and dozens of extracurriculars — or I could take inspiration from Keating and live freely, passionately, and accomplish amazing things all the while.

You know that feeling when you work really hard on an assignment? You stay up late and wake up early. You diligently spend hours in the Gothic Reading Room reading and re-reading your writing, checking the logic of your algorithm or crafting that perfectly persuasive memo. And then you submit it and get a grade back. It’s an “A” and you’re stoked. Then the high wears off. You take back the paper and you admire the grade one last time. Then, you throw it in the trash or never open the document tab again.

With Wednesday’s matchup canceled due to weather, Duke only had one midweek opportunity to test its mettle before a monster weekend series against No. 1 Wake Forest. On Tuesday afternoon against Appalachian State, the Blue Devils made the most of that opportunity. 

QuadEx could be great. Here’s how (Part II)

(03/06/24 12:53pm)

In my last column about QuadEx, I wrote about how Duke’s attempt at housing reform could mature into the most positively transformative feature of Duke’s community if it implemented a coherent model around the fundamental core of shared spaces.
