Jim On Duke’s 1985 Win In the Dean Dome

With the summer doldrums upon us, I’m going to get creative and take a look at some Duke history, great games, great teams, great players. I’ll make no attempt to rank anything, just take some trips on the Wayback Machine.

I’m going to start with a Duke-Carolina men’s game. This isn’t one that you see on ESPN Classic but in the context, Duke’s 1985 visit to Chapel Hill was one of the most satisfying games in the long rivalry.

What was the context?

Duke defeated North Carolina three times in 1966, including a famous 21-20 win in the ACC Tournament.
