Georgetown, UConn, Indiana, and Kansas

are the only teams outside of the ACC that have beaten both Duke and UNC since 2001.

Hogwarts U.

I doodled these whos-its of Universities and Hogwarts houses because this is the sort of thing that occurs to me to doodle. The pictures and the sketches aren’t great, but someday maybe I’ll create proper versions.

UNC/Ravenclaw:

Duke/Slytherin:

Boston College/Gryffindor:

UNCW/Hufflepuff:

In the past 82 games between Duke and UNC, the overall score is Tarheels: 6,355 to Blue Devils: 6,354.

That 6,355th point that Carolina made against Duke? A free throw by Tyler Zeller.

As usual, the final Duke-Carolina game on Saturday will decide the ACC regular season champion and probably a #1 seed in the NCAA tournament.

Said Hairston: “The thing about Duke was, every time they sent me a letter, they wouldn’t spell my name right. They would have ‘T.J. Harrison’ or something like that. And I’m like, ‘OK.

My mom asked me what it’s like to work “at Duke, around all those old buildings.”

I have to take the Robertson bus to Duke tomorrow because I work in the library there after I work in the library at Carolina. I will be deviant and wear a certain color blue.
The fact that a free bus between the two campuses even runs on Game Day is just asking for shenanigans, but short of taking the dog over there to take a dump in front of Cameron, I got nothing.
