IF we beat UT on Friday, we will have a home court advantage vs. Duke in their home state. Why you ask? History my friends. Back in 1979 Duke fans cheered for a 72-71 victory over North Carolina in the tourney in Raleigh, NC. However, Duke did not play in that game. That tourney game was Penn vs. Carolina. All the Duke fans showed up to cheer against their rival. This started a trend we will benefit from this Sunday. According to my source, a professor at UNC, "The crowd on Sunday will consist of 3,000 Duke, 500 Michigan fans, and 17,000 Carolina fans cheering against Duke."
"Coach Mattison told me what the Ravens were about, what he thought," Beyer said. "He definitely encouraged me. I hold his opinion in high regard."
