College basketball has been buzzing this week following the Duke-Syracuse game last Saturday night at Cameron Indoor Stadium. Mike Krzyzewski’s Blue Devils won the game 66-60, but it was Jim Boeheim’s ejection with 10.4 seconds left to play that garnered most of the attention.
Coach K talked about the game and the incredible atmosphere at Duke on Thursday’s edition of Basketball and Beyond.
Cameron can’t be duplicated. It’s one of those places, a stadium, a court, a fieldhouse, a place that has a soul. When people walk into Cameron and especially when it’s the level of game like Duke against Syracuse, they already know they’re going to have an experience. When you get 10,000 people, all anticipating that, it takes it to a whole nother level.
While many analysts and fans have dubbed Duke/Syracuse the next great rivalry, Coach K prefers to call it “an instant classic”.
