The annual hoard of Duke students has erected dozens of tents in front of Wilson on their journey from the comfort of their dorm rooms to the brutal, not quite freezing (grace below 32 degrees) conditions of the great North Carolina wilderness of Krzyzewskiville. The tradition of rejecting heat and sleep for a tightly-squeezed, uncomfortable viewing experience of the Duke-UNC basketball game dates back over 30 years.

The year is 2020. You’re sitting in your bedroom in a presentable top and pajama pants, gathering the mental fortitude to click on a Zoom link to join class, a club meeting or maybe a random webinar.

Humans have a distinct tendency to learn most effectively through their own experiences. It’s an inherent characteristic — we are stubborn beings, often resistant to advice and guidance no matter how wise or well-intentioned it might be.

‘They were hungrier’: North Carolina shows No. 7 Duke men’s basketball where it can — and must — progress

(02/04/24 3:32pm)

CHAPEL HILL—North Carolina’s largest lead Saturday came fairly early in the second half. An offensive rebound rattled away from the rim and into the waiting arms of junior forward Harrison Ingram, who coolly connected from the midrange to put the Tar Heels up 63-48 with a full 13:16 left to play. The Blue Devils spent the rest of the evening playing catch-up, doing just enough to stay within striking distance but never enough to truly make it a game again.
