Fear The Spear

My beloved Duke Blue Devils lost a heartbreaker at Phillips Arena in Atlanta today to a tough Florida State squad.

Following the game, Coach K said he was proud of his guys noting that, “They played winning basketball and when you lose playing winning basketball, [you] just shake hands and thank God there is at least one more game ahead.”

The ‘Noles, who were the third seed in the ACC Tournament, knocked second seed Duke out of the running for the championship 62-59.  The loss against FSU puts their record at 27-6 for the year.  This will be only the fourth time since 1997 that Duke will not make an appearance in the tournament championship.

No. 17 FSU will go up against No. 4 North Carolina vying for their first ever ACC Championship.  Meanwhile, Duke must until Sunday evening to learn their NCAA Tournament seeding.  Hopefully, they’ll be a No. 2 seed.
