P.S. That guy you can't think of was the best HS big man a couple years before coming to Duke. The greatest basketball player to come out of North Carolian snce Michael Jordan and so on.

I don't know about you, Passion and Mabdul, but I was upset at the play of JJ and Shav tonight. Shav continued his usual soft, idiotic play (trying to take a charge when you have 4 fouls :nono ). As for JJ, I was noticing he was shooting at an Iverson-like percentage the past few games (don't even talk about the 60 he dropped tonight, you know what I mean) and taking idiotic shots. I think that came to a head tonight. He's just like a pitcher who's in love with a specific pitch. Use it once too often, and you get burned. Well, that was JJ tonight. Not to mention he can't drive to the hole for a bag of weed (and yes, the weed story is true. If I didn't tell anyone here yet, I actually know the RA who busted him). K needs to either rein in his shot selection or bench his ass. Ditto to Shav and his defense (boy does he look like a cancer right now).

Shav did play poorly tonight...he didnt show the same intensity he did against GT. He really needs to get it together one of these games...he looks so scared out there and he holds onto the ball too long before making a move.

 

I saw this guy in high school back in N.C and he was a monster he had some great one on one matchups with Eric Williams and he usually came out the winner, now that is laughable.

 

JJ didnt have a good game by any means, but I thought he was getting abused by MD. Watch him as he goes through screens he gets held 90% of the time, plus he was getting hit in mid flight alot tonight as well. He should have shot 15 free throws. Some of his bad shots were the product of the shot clock being low or having no other option, like late in the game. He has to be dogg tired now, and its showing, he rarely ever comes out as we only have three viable offensive options at this point....I think he is a bit worn down. We could have used a Dave McClure tonight.

 

I dunno its frusterating, but Im less mad at this loss than the other two for some reason.

Maryland fans are obsessed with J.J Redick and Duke in general now...its getting bad...

You have to understand GW plays the no-respect card. Every Terp fan believes in it. When a program or player is praised for undiserving reasons (such as Duke's supposed squeaky clean image or Redick being a great shooter despite not leading the ACC in 3P% or FT% or Duhon's one-month long brusied ribs) and they are constantly taking a backseat to downfallen programs like UNC, NC State, Virginia and Georgetown.. it is frustrating. Terps want to be recognized as among the best, but in a way they don't know how to handle it.

 

Add in that half of Duke and Maryland's were neighbors in New Jersey and Long Island...

 

 

BTW, wasn't there a riot on Duke on Wednesday? Something about couches being burned.

STUDENTS BURN OUT RIGHTS

The Chronicle

 

With their spirits high and adrenaline pumping, students stormed West Campus Wednesday night for the traditional torching of the benches after Duke’s victory over the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. But the celebration was left smoldering after the Durham County fire marshal revoked Duke’s bonfire permit and firemen extinguished the mammoth blaze after only 45 minutes.

 

It was the first time the permit has been rescinded in four years—and potentially the last permit Duke receives.

 

According to Leanora Minai, senior public relations specialist for Duke, no more than three benches can be in the fire at one time and no dorm furniture may be used as fuel. Minai said there were up to 20 benches in the fire at various points. Students also threw dormitory couches and bed pallets into the flames.

 

““All future permits are now in jeopardy,� she said. "If you’re throwing more on, that’s not in the agreement. The rules were clear."

 

The bonfire ignited around 11:15 p.m. in front of House P after students stuck flaming pieces of newspaper between the slats of three stacked benches. Several male students tossed pieces of wood torn from other benches into the flames. Other students snapped photographs on their cell phones and cheered as the Crowell Quadrangle bench was fed to the fire.

 

His face illuminated by the firelight and glistening with sweat, senior Jason Jones called the scene “over the top madness.�

 

“This is the perfect way to top off my four years here,� he said. “It’s one of the greatest traditions in the country.... I hope it lasts all night.�

 

Other students, too drunk to talk, simply yelled and swarmed around the blaze, pouring beer on each other and skirting security to race in circles around the benches.

 

Residence Coordinator Chris Ellis, who was assisting with security, said the administration was trying to preserve the smaller benches and new Spanish benches—which security officials code-named “El Benchos�—that sit around the perimeter of the main quadrangle. But some students uprooted several two-seat benches and added them to the growing pile of fuel.

 

As rain began to fall, other students hauled more benches into the fire, sending embers high into the air. Capt. William Green of the Durham Fire Department said it was then, as “things were getting out of hand,� that the fire marshal decided to revoke the permit.

 

Wasiolek said police told administrative security to leave the quad near midnight. Lugging a high-power hose, Durham firemen soon broke through the crowd to drench the fire. Several students said one fireman also shot water into a group of revelers standing nearby.

 

“He was just spraying the fire, then he turned and started spraying us,� freshman Blair Carter said, noting that no students approached the fireman before he sprayed them.

 

Senior Ed Bailey, who was hit by the water, said he saw one or two students throw beer cans at the fireman, but added that he was still upset by the way the fire department, police and administration handled the situation.

 

“It’s just symbolism with what’s going on with the administration,� he said. “People were having fun, and they just poured water on it, put it out.�

 

As smoke billowed from the soaked remnants of the benches, students—some complaining that they had been manhandled—booed the firemen and police. Many said the fire had been put out for no reason. Minai, however, said the flames were doused because officials were worried the trees overhead might catch fire.

 

Whether or not the bonfire permit will be reinstated for next year’s UNC game has yet to be decided, Minai added. University and law enforcement officials will meet to discuss the issue in the coming days.

 

The fire marshal previously revoked Duke’s bonfire permit in Jan. 2001 after students started an illegal blaze on the quad following a game against the University of Maryland. It was reinstated within a few days.

 

University officials said they hope the current situation will end similarly. “This is a Duke tradition we have no interest in not having,� Vice President for Student Affairs Admin Moneta said.

Bother to read the article?

 

Big sold out game on a large campus. Bars located all in one area. Yeah, one would think traffic would disrupted as people left the bars.
