Memorial Day weekend is but right around the corner (Literally) and everybody...
Duke Vs UNC Alumni Game Scheduled+Roster For Both Teams
With the NBA lockout still in full throttle, it is now time to get excited about college basketball my fellow basketball heads! Growing up as a little girl wanting to play college ball and be amongst the greatest, I always wanted to be a Blue Devil and attend Duke. Loved watching Redick shoot from damn near half court, Williams beast the post, even to the new kids on the block as Nolan Smith handled the ball with ease. Even more exciting to see the new man on campus Austin Rivers play this season.
While all the NBA exhibition and charity games during the lockout have been great, there’s been one element missing: school pride. So if guys can put on for their city or their team, the next logical step for them was clearly to put on for their alma mater. And it only makes sense that one of the most heated and storied rivalries in sports kick things off.
According to Mark Watson of Blue Devil Nation, the first annual “Kings of Tobacco Road” game will take place on Nov. 17 at 8:30 p.m. on the campus of North Carolina Central University. Here’s who the game is slated to feature as of now:
Duke: Kyrie Irving, Nolan Smith, Corey Maggette, Chris Duhon, Elton Brand, Gerald Henderson, and coached by Jay Williams
No Redick or Williams??? Wait. No Grant Hill???? *rolls eyes
UNC: Jerry Stackhouse, Rasheed Wallace, Brendan Haywood, Antawn Jamison, Vince Carter, Raymond Felton, Shammond Williams, Donald Williams, and coached by Phil Ford
Oh how I wish I could attend this game.
