“It was a sad and somewhat pathetic turn of events, therefore, to see friends narrating this interesting documentary about their moment in time and calling me a bitch and worse, calling all black players at Duke “Uncle Toms” and, to some degree, disparaging my parents for their education, work ethic and commitment to each other and to me. I should have guessed there was something regrettable in the documentary when I received a Twitter apology from Jalen before its premiere. I am aware Jalen has gone to some length to explain his remarks about my family in numerous interviews, so I believe he has some admiration for them.

The Red Storm played its best half of the season - possibly its best half in a decade or longer - to open the game and rolled to a 93-78 decimation of third-ranked Duke before a roaring crowd of 19,353 at the Garden.

It’s the best regular-season win since it went into Duke’s Cameron Indoor Stadium and emerged with a one-point win that same season - the last time the Blue Devils lost a non-conference game at home.
