Glory Returns to Durham…

Alas! Your 2009 ACC Champions are the Duke University Blue Devils! Cameron Indoor’s pride and joy took it to Florida State today in the Georgia Dome and claimed yet another ACC Tournament Championship under Coach K. As a result, they ended up with a #2 seed in the NCAA Tournament and will literally get a home game against Binghamton in Greensboro, N.C. which is just a few miles down the road from Durham. Jon Scheyer and Gerald Henderson proved once again today that they are among the elite players in the ACC and in the country. dm_090124_ncb_duke_marylandThe ACC Tournament MVP trophy was given to Mr. Scheyer for taking control of each of Duke’s 3 games during the weekend. Furthermore, it just added another trophy to Coach K’s trophy case back home. After UNC choked and bit the bullet against Florida State on Saturday, took full advantage by winning a close one against a fired-up Maryland team (who also got an at-large bid in the tourney…congrats) and coming out launching and knocking down 3’s all over the court this afternoon. All the while, Elliot Williams and Nolan Smith locked down arguably the ACC’s best player in Tony Douglas and refused to let him beat them by himself. aagp131duke-university-acc-logo-postersI must say, for us Duke fans it was a great sign that they won the battle of the boards against quite possibly the overall tallest team in the country in the Seminoles from Florida State. Hopefully the hot shooting and aggressive play will continue for the next couple of weeks and Duke can once again claim its dominance of College Basketball and tear down the Championship nets on April 6th.

And yes, for all of you who hate me for liking Duke or just hate Duke in general and say they “suck” just because you’re bitter or just plain ridiculous, the JOKE IS ON YOU TODAY. WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS BABY AND THERE AIN’T NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT! GO BLUE DEVILS!

  1. Duke sucks…

    Haha I kid. Kinda. Thinking about going to the Thursday games in Greensboro. Tickets for the games are cheap as hell this year on stub hub.
