With the win over Syracuse, Duke has now improved their record to 22-3. This was a tough battle for Duke. The first half saw Michael Gbinije (former Duke player who transferred to Syracuse) get on fire with scoring 19 points including five 3-pointers. Duke went into the half down by 3 points. The 2nd half saw Duke come out shooting hot. Rakeem Christmas tried to make an impact for Syracuse. Christmas ended up with 11 points. Duke ended up winning by a score of 80-72 led by Jahil Okafor with 23 points, Quinn Cook with 17 points, and the athleticism of Justise Winslow with 12 points. I guess you could say... Christmas has passed by... but Happy Valentine's Day Syracuse! ;)
There's nothing else even close enough that will get you ready for March Madness like wearing the Duke uniform. Duke is every other team's Super Bowl! Check out the pic below from Duke Blue Planet. Yet another record for Duke and Coach K. The largest on-campus crowd in college basketball history. And who was the team coming to town that packed out the Carrier Dome? Yep..it's Duke. But wait... this record was also set last season when... Duke played at the Carrier Dome.
Here's to looking forward to yet another epic rivalry game with UNC this coming Wednesday!
GO DUKE! GTHC!
