Duke Done in NCAA Tournament

Coach K
Jeff Tiberii

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.

Jeff Tiberii covers politics for WUNC. Before that, he served as the station's Greensboro Bureau Chief.
