Duke Done in NCAA Tournament

Mar 17, 2012

NC State and UNC are moving on in the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. But Duke‘s season has come to an abrupt end.

Jeff Tiberii: The second seeded Blue Devils were shocked by the Lehigh Mountain Hawks, 75-70, in Greensboro on Friday night. Earlier in the day UNC beat Vermont 77-58 in the same building. And many Carolina fans hung around for the upset. Lehigh senior Jordan Hamilton:

Jordan Hamilton: We don’t often play in these type of environments. So I really have to give credit to our fans and also the Carolina fans who joined I to support us. And I think we were able to feed off that energy and I think it helped propel us to this win.

Meanwhile, NC State upset San Diego State 79-65. The sixth-seed Wolfpack faces 3-seed Georgetown tomorrow. Next up for U-N-C is Creighton. The Blue Jays are led by Doug McDermott, a former High School teammate of Tar Heel Harrison Barnes.
