Duke basketball bows on the season, UNC passes, plus hockey, baseball

Just because a college basketball game is over does not mean that the news in the field has stopped. And it was a busy week for some of the triangle’s best projects.

On Thursday night, Duke officially bowed to Mike Krzyszczyk’s era, holding his end-of-season banquet with a pair of posters that would eventually hang from the sides of the Cameron Indoor Stadium.

“I am the most successful boy on the planet,” said 75-year-old Kshizsky. “I am peaceful.”

Krzyszczyk’s final Duke team finished the season 32-7, winning the ACC regular season championship 16-4, reaching the 13th final quarter in 42 seasons under their head coach. No other coach has led the men’s college team to so many finals in the quarterfinals.

Although the Blue Devils lost 81-77 to North Carolina rivals in the national semifinals and were unable to claim the sixth national title in Krzyskowski’s career, he refused to allow it to worsen his feelings for the team this season.

“You guys are winners,” Kshizski told his team. “There are a lot of posters here, you have two of them. You have made my last season one of the happiest I have ever had. An incredible season. “

The team նոր Duke’s new coach John Sheyer arranged for the night to end with a happy note.

After his speech, Shayer asked the players ադառնալ the coaching staff, including Kշևևskև և and his wife Mickey, to return to the stage. Team captain Wendell Moore surprised Kizzyևski with an eight-week-old silver Labrador dog, which should be the new dog Kշiևski’s needed after his dog, Blue, died last summer.

Mixed bag on ice

The Hurricanes started the week by rolling, then hitting a team that is far from the playoff race, the Detroit Red Wings.

Let’s start with the positive news. Hurricanes kicked off the week with a win over Anaheim Ducks, one of the youngest NHL teams to advance from the playoffs. This was the last chance for Cannes fans to watch retired veteran Ryan Getslaf. Cannes ruined his last trip to Rally with a 5-2 victory.

The big match of the week was the face-to-face match with the New York Rangers, with which “Kannes” is fighting for the leader of the Metro Division. Carolina entered Madison Square Garden, winning only the second time in 15 games in a respectable place. The division then rose to four points, but New York’s victory on Wednesday and Cannes’s defeat to Detroit on Thursday were exacerbated by seven regular-season games.
