After back-to-back losses at the hands of Virginia Tech and Notre Dame, Duke desperately needed to right the ship in order not to fall into a three-game slide.

A column of tractors spewed tiny pellets of synthetic fertilizer across the parched earth, which then helplessly flew away with the next gust of wind. Such hardships must be necessary to prepare for the day when the verdant strips of turf will magically form a pristine lawn, right?






No. 8 Duke men's basketball earned its most lopsided ACC win of the season against Miami. Thank its rigid defense

(02/22/24 7:34am)

Her husband tries to pull her way, and her son is itching to get to his first Shooters pre-game (where only water will be served, of course). She grabs hold of her child; promises to never let go; tears flow uncontrollably.
