First Impressions

I grew up near Greensboro, NC and had the chance to attend my first Duke basketball game in 1988. I was 18 years old. Did I mention it was the championship game of the ACC Tournament v. Carolina??? I arrived early and walked down to court-side as the teams were on the floor warming up. I looked behind me and saw Jay Bilas. I asked him to sign, and he did. Then I called out to Coach K and asked if he would sign. He sent a security guard over who asked for my program and told me to meet him again after the game. Duke won the championship, of course, and the security guard returned my program to me… signed by every member of the team and all of the coaching staff, including coach K. during 1/2 time. What a memory!!!

Congrats on your all time wins record Coach K!
