from Tuesday afternoon:Duke 86, Elon 48…Andre Dawkins led Duke with 15 points, on 5-7 shooting from three-point range….
UNCG men vs. N.C. State on Monday at 7pm in the Greensboro Colieum and then TODAY/(Tuesday), you have Duke vs. Elon…..Duke-Elon listed at 1pm per key reports and that may effect attendance…Afternoon game?…OK….
You would think this would get the local ACC fans fired up and the Coliseum should draw in a lot of Duke fans, with the drive being minimal, from Durham to Greensboro….
Most feel the Duke crowd will make the biggest impact over the two days/nights, and I guess we will have to wait and see what goes down, or who all comes….
I remember a Duke-UNCG game a few years back in the Coliseum that must have nearly SOLD OUT, with upwards of 20,000 fans on hand to see the Blue Devils and the Spartans and this one was on a Saturday afternoon….
You don’t get to see N.C. State all that often around here, and tonight is ‘The Night’, as they square off with the Blue and Gold of UNCG….Maybe State’s T.J. Warren will have a monster game and wouldn’t that be nice for the Red and White tonight???
This is real men’s college basketball tonight and Tuesday, so get out to the ;Big Barn’ on Lee Street and High Point Road, while you still can….By next year, Gate City Blvd. will be coming on through…..Rich Brenner used to call the Coliseum the ‘Big Barn’ and we will call it that in honor of Mr. Brenner….Sure he would have had a front row for these two games…..
State-UNCG on Monday….
Duke-Elon on Tuesday….Not a bad doubleheader at all….
