Default Duke MBB ends season

Big news in our neck of the woods. As a grad of the other team on Tobacco Road I am not a fan but I also did not want it to end like this:

Coach k did. He never wanted to play this season. Take the year off and collect his 13 mil salary.

Exactly. They didn't want to turn down an invite to the NIT.

Maybe the school can petition the NCAA to have this year's losses removed from his record like they did after the '95 season when Coach K faked a back injury because they sucked.

That was when he punched Giminski and was having an affair with coed. Or so ive heard.

This is unfortunate. I would have liked to have seen the FSU/Duke matchup tonight.

In more important news, the UNC game has moved up to 8:30.

The way Duke has played this year they're better off stopping now. Not sure how they got this bad in one year. Maybe too much time worrying about other stuff.

K couldn't stand the thought of a blemish on his record of not making the NCAA Tournament. So he took the easy road out, last time he blamed it on Pete Gaudet this time on a virus. RAH, RAH, Car'lina 'lina RAH, RAH, Car'lina Go to Hell Duke

I strongly dislike that whiny bastard. I guess the Duke Bagman failed this time around.... Good riddance.

Well, damn. UVA is out of the ACCT now.

As much as I'd love to see the Heels go for the title, they should just cancel the conference tourney now. None of the remaining teams are playing for a bid. Might as well give them some time to isolate and get ready for the NCAA.

As much as I wanted to see the Heels possibly have a third win opportunity this year against Dook, I hate to see them go out that way, whatever the truth may be.

The Heels might, might make it past the second round but not likely. If that far.

No one cares.

Duke’s ACC Tournament run, and likely the remainder of the season, is over after a positive COVID-19 test and there could potentially be a link to the positive test on the Duke campus. https://www.dukechronicle.com/article/2021/03/duke-university-durham-interfraternity-council-in-person-rush, 102 undergraduates on campus tested positive for COVID-19 after being involved in a newly formed Durham Interfraternity Council. And
, but not confirmed by the school, many players were staying at the same hotel as those undergraduates, thus a positive case could have potentially come from there.
