Belmont ... so close.

Duke men's basketball squeaks by Belmont in season opener | Triangle Offense

This was the second game ever played between Duke and Belmont, and Duke's second straight one-point escape over the Bruins. In the 2008 NCAA Tournament, the No. 15 seed Bruins took the No. 2 Blue Devils to the wire, losing 71-70 in the final seconds.
How sweet would it have been for Duke to open with an L? So sweet. I was pulling for you, Belmont. You'll get'em next time.

Meanwhile, the other local powerhouse was out on an aircraft carrier having their way with the Spartans.

In other Duke news, I see pretty nifty Google Map of the Duke campus via Google Maps Mania. I hope someone out in Storrs is working on of these. And, if so, that it will include a Gampel interior view:

Championship trifecta. (Will 2012 be the fourth leg of the superfecta?)
