Boeheim ejected, ’Cuse rejected

Blue Devils get revenge in rematch by Andrew Beaton The chronicle

in the first meeting between Duke and Syracuse this season, rodney hood drove in overtime with the Blue Devils down by one. hit on the arm, hood did not receive the foul call and missed his dunk attempt with 15 seconds remaining. Syracuse prevailed 91-89. So it was only equitable that this time, when c.J. Fair attacked the basket with 10 seconds remaining, down 60-58, hood received the call. hood absorbed Fair’s contact near the baseline, and the official whistled a charge, sending Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim into a fury.

Boeheim was ejected after screaming at the officials, and the subsequent foul shots secured no. 5 Duke’s 66-60 victory at cameron indoor Stadium Saturday night. “i just thought it was the worst call of the year, that’s all. i just hate to see a game decided like that,” Boeheim said. “People will remember this one for 30 years because the old coach went out there a little bit and got excited.” hood was critical for the Blue Devils (22-6, 11-4 in the Acc), who struggled to break through the no. 1 orange’s 2-3 zone in the first half, which ended tied at 26. But in the second period, hood was able to help penetrate from the foul line while Jabari Parker challenged from the perimeter. hood finished with 13 points on 6-of-15 shooting and did not turn the ball over, playing a team-high 37 minutes. The redshirt sophomore drawing

the charge with 10 seconds left and Boeheim’s subsequent ejection gave the Blue Devils four free throws, three of which Quinn cook hit to secure the win. “it was my time to make a big-time play at the end of the game,” hood said. “last time, it could’ve ended either way. i’m not sure about this one, but it probably could’ve gone either way.” While stars hood and Parker struggled in the first half—with Parker committing four turnovers in the period— perhaps the unlikeliest of Blue Devils kept the team in the game: Marshall Plumlee. The 7-foot redshirt sophomore recorded four points, five rebounds and three blocks in the period, playing 15 minutes, more than fellow big men Parker and Amile Jefferson. Plumlee played a career-high 19 minutes, unable to play for much of the second half due to cramps that sent him to

the locker room for a period of time. “We would’ve used him more in the second half, but he had cramps,” Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski said. “he’s got to get accustomed to playing more minutes, get some more fluids in him.” Unlike the first meeting between these two teams this year when they combined for a whopping 180 points—more than any game the orange has played this year— this game was characterized by its defense. Duke’s 66 points were the fewest it has scored in a victory this season. After Syracuse (25-2, 12-2) hit five of its first seven shots, they finished the first half making just five of their next 28, ultimately finishing the game shooting 38.7 percent from the field. The Blue Devils, who hung with the orange in the first game by nailing 15-of-36 3-pointers, See m. BasKetBaLL, page 7

Educators critique McCrory’s Senior Hannah Ward gives teacher pay initiative sermon on perfectionism by Katie Becker The Chronicle

Julia may/chronicle file photo

Gov. Pat McCrory vows to raise the starting salary of public school teachers in North Carolina.

by Tessa Vellek The chronicle

Gov. Pat McCrory has taken initiative to pay public school teachers more, but some educators say he is not going far enough to retain teachers. Earlier this month, Gov. Pat McCrory announced his intentions to raise starting teacher pay by 14 percent. Critics have since highlighted the need for a new incentive program for teachers to get Master’s degrees and an across-theboard pay raise for teachers, including tenured professors. Both of these features were absent from the new McCrory plan. Durham officials believe that public education in North Carolina is suffering as a result of government inaction.

“Teacher retention is critical for student success because research shows that teachers continue to gain skills as they are in the classroom, and we need to compensate them fairly and retain them,” said Natalie Byer, a member of the Durham Board of Education. Mark Jewell, vice president of the North Carolina Association of Educators, noted that this would impact lowperforming schools particularly negatively as students at these schools tend to learn best when the faculty is a team who have worked together for numerous years. Byer said she encourages the General See teacher, page 8

This year’s Duke Chapel student preacher spoke on a topic relevant to many Duke students—perfectionism. Senior Hannah Ward was chosen as the student preacher. In her sermon, titled “Everybody’s Perfect,” she said that everybody can reveal perfection by engaging in honest relationships, giving of themselves and recognizing God’s love. “Because our God is perfect, complete, holy, whole, we as His creation are too,” Ward told the congregation. “We are not to cover ourselves in insecurity, lies or deceit, but rather expose the caring, loving, compassionate beings God made us to be.” Originally from Asheville, N.C., Ward is a Duke Chapel PathWays Scholar and is involved in many facets of Duke religious life—Duke Lutherans, Presbyterian Campus Ministries, Undergraduate Faith Council and the Chapel youth group. Ward is a pre-med student majoring in religion and psychology. The student preacher is selected by members of the Chapel staff, Religious Life staff and Divinity School faculty, said Christy Lohr Sapp, associate dean for religious life. Director of Worship Meghan Feldmeyer noted that the committee strives to read the applicants’ sermons objectively. Although it is always a difficult decision, Feldmeyer said this year the committee was able to reach consensus. Katie Owen, Presbyterian Campus Minister and a mentor of Ward, ex-

plained that the goal of Student Preacher Sunday is to allow the Chapel congregation to be involved in undergraduates’ spiritual journeys. Furthermore, she said, it emphasizes that preaching can include all types of people. “It’s a reminder that the role of preaching is not limited to those who have doctorates and are the best in the world at it,” Owen said. “The Chapel could be perceived as a place where those who are invited to preach are the best of the best. Student Preacher Sunday is a reminder that God calls lots of people to preach, not just those with perfect credentials.” Ward said she has always been interested in being the student preacher, but this was the first year she applied. She expressed gratitude to the religious life community for supporting her and exposing her to diverse perspectives and beliefs. “One of the biggest lessons that I’ve learned while participating in Religious Life is to be open to multiple perspectives,” Ward said. “Everyone at Duke is brilliant and passionate and it seems a shame to not explore that aspect of this campus.” Both Sapp and Feldmeyer commented that Ward is a “mischievous prankster” known around the Chapel for her sense of humor, which was evident in parts of her sermon. “Because of her humor, people often fail to recognize her depth,” Feldmeyer said.

Alspaugh belongings fall victim to alleged kleptomaniac by Rachel Chason The Chronicle

izzi clark/The chronicle

A seemingly innocuous dorm, Alspaugh residents are currently battling the rumored presence of a kleptomaniac roaming the halls.

Many students have expressed concerns about the existence of a kleptomaniac in Alspaugh Dormitory despite continued uncertainty. Shortly after the Spring semester began, Alspaugh residents started reporting a number of missing items, such as towels, clothes, blankets and even golf uniforms. Although the Office of Housing, Dining and Residence Life is doing its best to respond to students’ concerns—reminding them to stay vigilant and lock their rooms—finding a concrete solution appears difficult, said Alspaugh’s Graduate Resident Pete Chhoy. “We are addressing the concerns,” said Chhoy, a Ph.D. candidate in pharmacology and cancer biology. “To be honest, though, there are not a lot of concrete steps that we can take to catch a thief. We can’t install cameras or search people’s rooms.” The thief has allegedly stolen packages from outside of dorm rooms, taken clothes from the laundry room and even grabbed food from students’ rooms. Freshman Katie Pearlman said a Duke blanket was stolen from her room and a package worth $50 that UPS reported as delivered was taken from outside of her door. “I want my stuff back,” Pearlman said. “I would be less angry if they would return my things. Seriously though, it’s so annoying.” Alspaugh resident and East Campus Council member Hala Daou, a freshman, said several of her belongings—including three shirts, a computer charger and a package of Cliff bars—have also fallen victim to the alleged kleptomaniac. “We write in Alspaugh’s Facebook group, and everyone agrees about how mad they are, and nothing changes,” Daou said. “Realistically, though, I know that nothing can be done except [have] people be more careful.” Pearlman and Daou, who are neighbors, took their concerns to Alspaugh’s Facebook page earlier this month, requesting that the thief return any stolen items to the common room. Their post generated over 30 likes and comments, as students listed other items that were stolen and proposed possible solutions. “The Alspaugh House Council is currently investigating this mysterious situation,” House Council President Keaton Stoner, a freshman, said. “We advise all residents to lock their doors, remain vigilant and stay away from all windows. We will do everything in our power to catch this merciless villain.” Some students, though, were less certain about the existence of an Alspaugh kleptomaniac. “People got caught up in the excitement and hype and began to blame someone for stealing their things,” freshman Julia Kahky, an Alspaugh resident, wrote in an email Sunday. “I honestly don’t think there was a thief. I’m sure I lost my stuff as well as other people did.” If there is in fact a thief, Chhoy offered some concrete short-term solutions, mixed in with life advice. “People need to lock their doors and take care of their things,” he said. “There are dangerous people in the world. Including in our dorm.” Lacking other options, some students have used threats as their last recourse. “Give me back my things,” said freshman Alexa Decina, an Alspaugh resident. “Or else.” Danou offered a similarly menacing response. “We’re coming for you,” she said.

The Chronicle

Are Duke students getting a deal on tuition? The past quarter of a century has seen the price of attending college skyrocket. At Duke, what used to cost students around $10,000 now costs them six times as much. The rising cost of tuition is making it harder and harder for many people, even those who are academically qualified, to see an elite college as a viable option. Of course, options like financial aid and student loans exist, but, at the end of the day, $60,000 is still an astonishing figure for most students. That is why it may come as a shock to many Duke students to hear that, according to Executive Vice Provost of Finance and Administration Jim Roberts, the $60,000 price tag on a Duke education is actually a discount—In a recent article from National Public Radio, administrators at Duke claimed that the University actually invests $90,000 in the education of each student. A large portion of this money goes to faculty. Duke spends a great deal of money recruiting talented faculty to the University, but many of these researchers only rarely or cursorily interact with undergraduates since they spend much of their time in labs and with graduate students. Administrators

claim, nonetheless, that having excellent faculty and researchers indirectly benefits the average undergraduate. Critics, on the other hand, argue that the faculty who spend most of their time doing research do not offer much immediate value to the average

Editorial undergraduate student. These critics contend that undergraduates are “subsidizing a giant educational edifice” with which they will barely come in contact. We are inclined to agree with the critics. We are skeptical about the $90,000 figure and see its repeated citation as a reactionary measure from administrators, who, pressured by complaints about the rising cost of education, need to justify Duke’s formidable price tag. There are some expenses—such as the renovations to the library and dining facilities—that students ought to contribute to even if they do not benefit directly from them. But, when it comes to the bulk of the costs—paying faculty—the University should

provide a more transparent accounting. If researchers do not contribute to the average undergraduate’s academic experience, costs associated with them should not be factored into the purported value of an undergraduate education. But what do researchers do for Duke? Many argue that top-notch researchers increase the value of a Duke degree and help drive up our national ranking. They also claim that researchers attract promising students to the University, making the undergraduate experience better and the $90,000 figure justifiable. Although these appear intuitively to be correct assumptions, it is very difficult to determine the veracity of such claims, and, in any case, it is not appropriate to judge the worth of a college education in terms of such distant and speculative benefits to the student. We would like to see undergraduates gain directly from the high price of attending Duke. We also request more transparent accounting of how our tuition dollars are spent. We ought to know how much, if any, of each student’s tuition is being spent on items that do not directly impact students and why.

traveling in troves desperate to find a pogo stick to jump on. On February 15, Desperation Day, we were all so sated with sex that we thought we could never pitch a tent in time for tenting. But now that Valentine’s week has passed and the candy is on sale, everything has changed. Their overwhelming phallic fascination has disappeared completely, and your balls are bluer than the Duke Blue Devil. The ladies have regained some level of “confidence.” But have no fear, boys—we can fix that. Some of you are probably wondering what makes me—an old man—such an expert on what women need. But you have to remember that women’s lives are run by men. Think about the names: guy-necologist, men-opause, menstruation. Clearly men know how to handle the female anatomy. And that’s doubly true with old politicians like myself. You see, old male politicians are the ones guiding policy, so other men can look to them for advice on how to treat women based on the legislation they pass. Below are my guidelines on how to treat a woman. The following is my summary of all the best state and federal laws about women from your friendly neighborhood GOP. 1. Don’t treat them as equals. In April 2012, Wisconsin Governor and fellow Republican Scott Walker tried to repeal the Equal Pay Enforcement Act, which works to close the wage gap between men and women. Wisconsin state Senator Glenn Grothman was quoted as saying, “You could argue that money is more important for men. I think a guy in their first job, maybe because they expect to be a breadwinner someday, may be a little more money-conscious.” I know what you’re thinking, guys: “That’s right. But how does that help me get laid?” It’s all about the mindset, brother. Chicks dig it when you don’t treat them as equals. Think of chivalry. All you need to do is acknowledge that a girl can’t open a door by opening it for her, and she is putty in

their time fighting for our nation. Some would say that this is a travesty of the greatest kind. But Sen. Saxby Chambliss from Georgia would not be one of those people. Men like Chambliss have tried to stop regulation in regard to assault in the military because it’s caused by uncontrollable factors like “hormone level created by nature.” We can extrapolate from this that we, as men, have no control over our bodies. So let’s say you’re at Shooters and a girl is clearly not in the mood. It is your job to press on. I mean, you can’t control yourself. As long as she doesn’t have a boyfriend, yes means yes and no means try again in five minutes. 3. Don’t let women control their bodies. We have all heard about the nonsense argument between pro-life and pro-choice, but not enough have heard about the fact that Kansas legislators passed a bill that says that doctors must tell women that abortions are linked to breast cancer. The World Health Organization very soon condemned this, but this didn’t stop the bill from being passed in Kansas along with a similar bill in New Hampshire. This shows that women can’t be trusted with their bodies, so we have to control their bodies be it by hook, crook or cancer. So let’s head back to our imagination Shooters. When you’re pumping drinks into a girl, drunk or not, you have to be there to take care of her body. I mean, who else will? Brothers, our government clearly knows how to treat women, so we should follow their lead. The cycle perpetuated by our Republican legislators is one that acts as a road map for how to get women. So long as we passively allow these laws to stay in place, we are propagating the idea that women aren’t equal to men and, we should treat them as such. Women are nothing without men. Am I Right, or am I right? Right Wing is pro-life. Except when it comes to war, gun control or the outlaw of trans-fats.

Dillon Patel it’s casual... the Olympians we glorify. While they may hold our attention and our hearts for two weeks every few years, the vast majority of them live in relative obscurity. They are far from the celebrity status that many of our nation’s professional athletes in football, basketball or baseball live with on a daily basis. Yes, there will always be the Michael Phelps and the Shaun Whites of the world, but the vast majority of Olympians are everyday people. Sure they are talented and dedicated, but the majority is far from wealthy—not to mention the amount of people that have dedicated their entire lives to their sport, sacrificing their academic aspirations, personal relationships and career goals just to fall short of even qualifying. Then again, making it to the Olympics is one thing and actually winning a gold medal is an entirely other thing. While gold medals may not have been made of pure gold since the 1912 Olympic Games in Sweden, they still represent the ultimate symbol of athletic success. So what is a gold medal? Well, according to the International Olympic Olympics, for the last century or so at least, a gold medal is actually 92.6 percent silver with just over six grams of gold. They look and feel the same across every event and tally the same on the Olympic medal chart (more commonly known as America versus the world), but are all gold medals really created equally? I’m not just talking about a difference in sports preferences. That comes down to a combination of nationality and personal beliefs. I’m referring to the barriers to entry that make it much harder for certain countries, especially those in the developing world, to even have a chance to compete in the Olympics. The Winter Olympics is inherently unequal. The vast majority of sports require cold weather and snow, but more and more, they also require a substantial amount of money to train and compete. Sure, the Jamaicans managed to pull together a bobsled team on multiple occasions,

but, while they may be winning our hearts, they aren’t exactly bringing home the medals. While our Jamaican friends in Cool Runnings might have reached the 1988 Winter Olympics bobsledding finals, their real-life counterparts were eliminated in the qualifiers. The “applicant pool” is inherently smaller than that of sports in the Summer Olympics, such as track and field, soccer or swimming. The New Yorker recently published an article entitled, “Wealth, Equality and Olympic Success,” examining the correlation between wealth and Olympic glory, specifically focusing on the Winter Games. It turns out that the “wealthiest discipline,” measured by average per-capita GDP per medal, is curling, followed closely by snowboarding, ski jumping and Nordic combined. Curling, with a per-capita GDP of about $39,000, would rank around the top 15 nations in the world. What’s the discipline with the lowest per-capita GDP? Figure skating… go figure! Sure, figure skating may seem like a sport for the wealthy, complete with bedazzled leotards and classical music, but the fact that figure skating is the “poorest” discipline should tell us something about the inequality of the Winter Games. Even this per-capita GDP is somewhat misleading, however, as the “poorer” countries tend to be those that have some of the higher wealth disparities in the world, with the nation’s wealthier citizens generally being the ones that actually compete in the Olympics, only further perpetuating the disparity. Every four years, the Winter Olympics are broadcast to the world, and, every four years, we watch rich countries assert their dominance on the developing nations of the world. I’m not saying that the Summer Olympics don’t exhibit many of the same wealth barriers to entry, but I think their discriminatory scope is considerably smaller. They have a considerably larger number of sports where developing nations not only have a chance to compete, but also a chance to win. What are we supposed to do about it? I’m not really sure. Maybe winter sports are just made for the wealthy. I try my hardest to watch the Winter Olympics every four years. I’m not sure if it’s my patriotic spirit or love for Olympic drinking games, but, inevitability, every four years, I end up spending half the time trying to Google the rules as I watch. I’m still not quite sure how curling works, and the scoring system for figure skating will never make sense to me. But hey, Brazil 2016 is only two years away.


his week, Cosmopolitan Magazine published an article about Duke’s latest scandal—the oftentimes-upsetting response to the news that a member of the freshman class also happens to be a porn star. The article began as follows: “It’s no small feat being known as the infamously worst college for women in a country where a number of respected colleges cover up sexual assault reports, but then there’s Duke University. The elite North Carolina

Ellie Schaack brave new world college has a heinous reputation for slut-shaming, double standards and overall sexual hostility towards their female students.” And we do—have a heinous reputation, at least. In 2011, The Atlantic wrote: “Something ugly is going on at [Duke] University.” The “glittering social world” dominated by unintellectual, casually racist and sexually demeaning alpha males, they wrote, would “offer any parent ample reason to think twice before sending a beloved child to Duke.” In 2009, GQ released a list of the “douchiest colleges” in America. Duke was ranked second. “They’re probably number one,” GQ wrote, “but we’d rather not rank Duke number one at anything.” Woah. This reputation is a sharp contrast to the Duke I know—home of the Me Too Monologues and Common Ground and Who Needs Feminism, home of the five hours of PACT training I received last year and the fabulous Women’s Center and, after a few years of student activism, “one of the most extreme college sexual assault policies in history.” To me, the dominant conversation hasn’t been one of “slut-shaming, double standards and overall sexual hostility”—it’s been a backlash against it. So why are we still characterized this way? One possibility is that that these initiatives are responses to an unusually toxic campus culture that remains dominant. Maybe Duke students generally are uncommonly crude, uncommonly racist, uncommonly misogynistic—maybe the social group I surround myself with has shielded me from this reality. But I think another possibility is more likely. The Duke lacrosse scandal still looms over campus. The lesson that the world learned from the scandal was that Duke was a toxic environment for women, a land of misogynistic douchery in excess. But the few who paid attention through the case’s end learned another lesson, too: We learned how easily people assign narratives to events and people and places. We saw privileged white athletes callously partying at their elite university. We saw an underprivileged black stripper trying to make ends meet. The narrative that made sense was that the men were taking advantage of her—not that she was taking advantage of them. And the world clung to that narrative, abandoning the principle of innocent until proven guilty, considering the social commentary inherent in the story evidence enough. The University as a whole has taken on the characterization of the accused lacrosse players. The narrative that now makes sense is the story of the dominance of the Dukebag: the rich, white, smart-butunintellectual misogynist unaware of his privilege. But, like the lacrosse case, the reality of the situation is more complex. “Slut-shaming, double standards, and overall sexual hostility” exist on this campus—of course they do. But I’d argue that they are not Duke problems. They’re societal problems. We don’t live on a campus where rape culture dominates, where women make less than men for the same work and where we subconsciously assert that women should be submissive and men should be dominant. We live in a world where rape culture dominates, where women make less than men for the same work and where we subconsciously assert that women should be submissive and men should be dominant. But when we see manifestations of these issues at Duke just like we would everywhere else, they get enormous amounts of attention because they confirm the Dukebag narrative. Believing that Duke’s faults make it unusual is an appealing story. Changing the culture in a place where the population is measured in thousands, not billions, is a much kinder task to take on. But it’s simply not true. Cosmopolitan demonized the Duke campus’s response to Lauren’s reveal. They described how she was “outed by her classmate as a porn actress” and “is now facing Internet humiliation and rape threats.” This is terrible—it is so far from OK. But do we really believe that the reaction would have been different somewhere else? That Yale or UNC or Brigham Young University would have universally welcomed a porn star with open arms? And, while the focus has been on the negative response, she’s seen broad support, too—the article she wrote was, as of last Saturday, tweeted nearly 1,500 times and liked on Facebook over 600 times. When I saw it shared, it was accompanied by expressions of admiration for the grace with which she was handling the situation. So parents? Don’t think twice about sending your child to Duke. There are a lot of screwed up norms on this campus—just like there are everywhere else. We’re just lucky enough to be so infamous that we confront them regularly. And, to the women who are about to be accepted into the Class of 2018: Don’t let the articles mislead you. Unlike the writers of those articles, my sample size of the experiences of Duke women is enormous, and I say chances are you’re going to love it here.

sermon from page 3 “As someone who has known her thoughtfulness and depth, it was particularly lovely to see her in the Chapel pulpit.” Ward noted that she hopes people will take away the message that we are perfect because God loves us and that love enables us to love each other. “There are two parts of being perfect,” Ward said. “There’s the acknowledgement that because you were created by God and redeemed by Christ and the process to which you reveal that truth to others.” Ward called on the congregation to take action, saying that the gift of God’s grace gives us a responsibility to be charitable and loving. “Our scripture today gives us a call to

action—to show the world the love that has redeemed us,” Ward said in her sermon. “Not sure you have the strength right now? Don’t worry…I hear practice makes perfect.” A number of students reacted positively to Ward’s message. “Her sermon was as inspiring as it was relatable,” said freshman PathWays Chapel Scholar Autumn Carter. Freshman Zach Heater commented that he appreciated the theological questions Ward raised. “Hannah addressed an issue that is very important for Duke students,” said Heater, also a PathWays Chapel Scholar. “She asked, ‘What does it mean to be perfect in the Duke context? What does it meant to be perfect in the eyes of God? What is the difference?’”

teacher from page 3 Assembly to reassess their decision to strip teachers of Master’s degree benefits, a change which came from a 2013 law that also eliminated teacher tenure in North Carolina. She said that teacher pay has been frozen in North Carolina since 2008 with only a 1.2 percent increase, and the McCrory measure would only help a limited amount. Minnie Forte-Brown, vice chair of Durham Public Schools, said she equates the public school system to a business— as teachers advance, they should be paid more. “In order for us to have the most competent, the best-trained and the bestequipped teaching staff, we need to reward and compensate teachers who have the discipline to achieve higher education,” Forte-Brown said. Giving a raise to beginning teachers and not to tenured teachers will create a divide between the two in schools, Jewell said. He noted that North Carolina will lose its competitiveness for teachers in the Southeast. “The teachers are feeling very unappreciated, very devalued—especially tenured teachers,” Jewell said. The 2013 law that eliminated teacher tenure in North Carolina also requires school principals to select only 25 percent of teachers to receive a 4-year contract. As a result, teachers are leaving public schools in North Carolina at a faster rate, said N.C. House Representative Paul Luebke of Durham County. “Failure to provide a raise for seniorlevel teachers, while providing a raise for newcomers, will reduce morale further… and lead some teachers to leave N.C. for teaching jobs in other states, or to leave public school teaching and look

The Chronicle for a different job,” Luebke wrote in an email Friday. Jewell suggested simplifying the salary scale into 15 steps that outline the multiple ways teachers can go up in pay scale. These steps could be in 5-year increments along with certain criteria, like attaining a Master’s degree or National Board Certification. Luebke noted that McCrory’s priorities would not likely be manifest as actual legislation, other than the new teachers’ pay initiative. Rather, he said that the lack of a pay increase for experienced teachers would hurt the Republicans at the ballot box. “North Carolina has taken an extreme turn backwards,” Jewell said. “That’s why North Carolina is at the bottom of the barrel in terms of teacher pay.”

Duke-Syracuse sequel lives up to original

Hood’s role in controversial calls links two epic contests by Ryan Hoerger THe CHroNICle

often a sequel leaves an audience disappointed, failing to live up to the greatness of the original. The second installment of Duke-Syracuse was not that kind of sequel. Three weeks ago, Syracuse and Duke played the best college basketball game of the year in front of a record-setting crowd at the Carrier Dome. Saturday night’s contest at Cameron Indoor Stadium was just as riveting, but the two games could not have been more different. Perhaps the lone constant between the two contests: rodney Hood’s involvement in a controversial, game-deciding play. The redshirt sophomore’s driving dunk attempt merited a play-on in overtime at the Carrier Dome, but Hood got the benefit of the doubt Saturday night, sliding over to draw a charge on a slashing C.J. Fair with 10.4 seconds remaining. To say orange head coach Jim Boeheim disagreed with the call would be an understatement. The 69-year-old stormed onto the court, unleashing an expletive-laden tirade in the face of the officials and earning himself two technical fouls and an ejection. “The new rule is, it’s a block. That’s the new rule, it’s been explained 100 times,” said Boeheim, who still felt Hood was moving when contact was made after seeing the replay postgame. “I wanted

And I did—I thought I was quick, I stayed down, and I didn’t get injured. All those things are good.” A no-call would have tied the game at 60 apiece; a blocking call would’ve given the orange a chance to take the

lead. Instead, Boeheim’s outburst gave the Blue Devils four free throws and the ball, helping put the cap on a 66-60 win. Although Duke struggled from the freethrow line all night, finishing 13-for-25, Boeheim said he had no regrets about his reaction, feeling the game was al-

ready out of reach. “I kind of thought that we would lose the game,” Boeheim said. “I wasn’t thinking too much, but I thought that [call] was the game-decider. We’ve got to foul, See SEQUEL, page 8


blue Devils cruise to 4-0 start by Brian Mazur THe CHroNICle

jennie xu/The ChroniCle

Taking weekend contests against Pennsylvania and Stony Brook, Duke improved to 4-0 for the first time since 2008.

Duke passed a pair of weekend tests to move to 4-0 in the month of February for the first time since 2008. The No. 1 Blue Devils kicked off the weekend by downing No. 16 Pennsylvania 9-6 Friday night at Koskinen Stadium. Duke had previously lost two of its past three matchups PENN 6 against the Quakers, including a 14-9 loss DUKE 9 in Philadelphia last 6 season. The Blue SB Devils then cruised DUKE 14 past Stony Brook Sunday afternoon, notching a 14-6 victory. “As we play games we put them to rest right afterwards, but the [4-0] start in February feels great,” senior attack Josh Dionne said. “We had a competition between the Penn senior class and our senior class, so it was good to get a win in our backyard. I just give a lot of credit

to our seniors on that one.” Blue Devil goalie luke Aaron, who made his first-career start against Pennsylvania, made seven first-half saves in the net. The sophomore finished with 11 saves and stopped 65 percent of his shots against the Quakers (0-1) before following that up with another 11-save performance against the Sea Wolves. After backing up Kyle Turri last season during Duke’s national championship run, Aaron’s strong play has propelled him into a starting role in between the pipes. “luke has been really under control,” Duke head coach John Danowski said. “He is having fun and playing very relaxed. He is playing like a senior, like a guy who has been around.” even though this was the season-opener for Pennsylvania, which had weeks to prepare for the game, the Blue Devils got off to a quick start. Duke (4-0) netted four first-quarter goals, including two that came in the first four

minutes of the game. each side tightened up defensively in the second quarter, with neither team able to find the net in the first 14 minutes of the period. Both teams had open looks at the net, but the play of both goalies kept the scoring at bay. The Quaker defense, which allowed 11 shots in the first period, slashed that number to four in the second quarter. Senior goalkeeper and All-America honorable mention Brian Feeney helped hold Duke scoreless in the second quarter by making three saves. With just 10 seconds to play in the second quarter, Pennsylvania executed a play out of a timeout and found a way to work the ball past Aaron to cut the lead to one goal heading into the locker room. In the second half, the Blue Devils regained momentum when senior attack Jordan Wolf See M. LACROSSE, page 7

blue Devils fall to Notre Dame, Jones sprains knee by Amrith Ramkumar THe CHroNICle

Just when things finally seemed to be going Duke’s way, the unthinkable happened. With 11:53 left in the game, sophomore guard Alexis Jones wove through the Notre Dame defense and finished a layup to bring the Blue Devils within seven. Duke’s point guard then fell to the ground, writhing in pain after her knee buckled. Without a natural ball handler left available to play, the Blue Devils’ comeback fell short and No. 7 Duke fell 81-70 to No. 2 Notre Dame at the Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center in Notre Dame, Ind. When Jones exited the game, the Blue Devils had made 10-of-15 second-half field goals. Duke scored just two baskets during the next 9:30, allowing the Fighting Irish to stretch the lead to 18 and pull away. “Notre Dame is a great team. You don’t know what would have happened from there. But I guess I wish I could have seen it,” Duke head coach Joanne P. McCallie said. “She’s an All-American candidate, a super sophomore and obviously we were a different team when she was gone.” The Blue Devils (24-4, 11-3 in the ACC) looked lost to start the game, falling behind 20-2 because of sloppy turnovers, poor shot selection and porous transition defense. Duke committed 14 first-half turnovers and allowed 13 points off those turnovers, making it seem like the Blue Devils were on their way to their second loss to the Irish by more than 20 points in the last three weeks. “We took some bad shots, some quick shots, which fueled their transition,” junior center elizabeth Williams said. “We just need to learn to be more patient early.” Notre Dame’s seniors set the tone early. Kayla McBride had 16 points in the first pe-

However, after Achonwa picked up her second foul nine minutes into the contest, Williams—who failed to register a field goal in the first meeting—went to work, scoring 10 points during the rest of the half. The Blue Devils looked like a different offensive team after getting their All-American center involved. “I felt that [Williams] wouldn’t be denied even when she was frustrated,” McCallie said. “even when some things didn’t go her way early, I just saw a person of great resolve. She wasn’t going to stop. She really rose to the occasion.” Jones started pushing the ball up the court at every opportunity and Duke made seven of its next eight field goals after start-

ing the game 1-of-10 from the field. Although the Blue Devils were unable to slow down the Fighting Irish—who shot 53.1 percent in the first half—Duke’s offensive pace gave the Blue Devils a chance to overcome their horrific start. After senior richa Jackson banked in a 3-pointer from just past halfcourt at the end of the half, Duke trailed 46-32 and had grabbed the momentum by scoring six points in the last seven seconds. “I think that the team has that resolve,” McCallie said. “I think it’s a great reflection of our leadership. They were definitely mad and frustrated, but I think we really have some folks that fight.” Jackson and Williams each scored six

quick points in the second half to bring the Blue Devils even closer. Although McBride— who had a career-high 31 points—continued knocking down shots, the Fighting Irish had no answer for Duke’s fast-paced offense. With Notre Dame crowding Duke’s leading scorer—senior Tricia liston—Jones took advantage of the extra room to operate. After getting Jackson, Williams and senior Haley Peters involved early in the period, the lefty took the ball coast-to-coast on consecutive possessions to make the score 62-55 before suffering the knee injury. She would return to the court with tears in her eyes, knowing she was done for the day and her team was out of point guards. Seniors Chelsea Gray and Chloe Wells were already lost for the season. Jones finished with 15 points and six assists for the game and was consoled on the bench by her mentor, Gray. The Blue Devils simply could not find a way to answer Notre Dame’s late baskets without a true floor general and were on the wrong side of the 15-4 run following Jones’ exit. Notre Dame’s Jewell loyd helped secure her team’s 50th consecutive regular season win and first ACC regular season title—scoring 19 points to complement McBride—but the sophomore’s strong game and defensive job on liston was still overshadowed by McBride’s array of scoring moves. “I realize that it looked easy, but it’s probably because she’s that great of a player,” McCallie said. “She’s got such a quick release. She’s a pretty smart player and she found some holes to quickly shoot it.” The MrI on Jones’ knee Monday now has enormous implications for the Blue Devils’ postseason hopes. Very few players can bring a team back from a 20-2 deficit on the road against a top-two opponent, but that is what Jones did with her unique speed. “This game isn’t really our focus right now,” McCallie said. “We have the health of our point guard. That’s our focus.”

Duke earns 5 medals at ACC Championships McCrory named Most Valuable Diver for fourth straight year by Ali Wells The Chronicle

The Blue Devil seniors shined in championship competition as senior Nick McCrory swept the diving events and the women’s swim team rewrote the school’s record books. Kicking off the ACC Championships Wednesday night in Greensboro, N.C., with an NCAA A-standard in the women’s 200-yard medley relay, Duke earned five trips to the podium and a seventh-place overall finish by the conclusion of competition Saturday night. McCrory was crowned ACC Most Valuable Diver Saturday after his third win of the championships on the platform, becoming the first athlete to earn the title four times. “For Nick to come in and destroy his records again and once again win… it just speaks volumes,” head coach Dan Colella said. “He’s one of those really special athletes that everybody’s watching. He put on a show tonight.” The senior led the field in both the 1- and 3-meter springboards and the platform. With a final score of 531 points on the 3-meter springboard, McCrory broke both his own school record and the conference record. With close competition from Samuel Dorman of Miami on the 1-meter springboard, McCrory took first place by three points with a total score of 425.70. He wrapped up his final ACC Championships with 492.95 points on the platform and a sweep of the diving events. In the pool, Duke qualified a relay for the NCAA Championships for the first time in program history with an A-standard performance in the 200-yard medley relay Wednesday night. After freshman Jessica Sutherland led on backstroke, senior Christine Wixted turned in the third-fastest 50-yard breast-

stroke split of the field. Freshman Maddie Rusch was quick off the block with a reaction time of 0.04 seconds following Wixted’s touch. Senior Lauren Weaver anchored the relay with an impressive 21.76-second split for her 50-yard freestyle, nearly catching North Carolina’s Hannah Lincoln in her final strokes into the wall. The Blue Devils’ final time was 1:37.91. “The first event of ACCs is always very, very stressful and to perform and just crush the school record the way they did was amazing,” Colella said. Duke broke all four of its other relay records in the course of the weekend. Wixted broke the 200-yard freestyle record with her time of 1:49.03 on the leadoff leg of the 800-yard freestyle relay. Her teammates Brittany Friese, Kiera Molloy and Liza Bragg remained under pace, smashing the Blue Devils’ previous record mark by more than two seconds with a final time of 7:19.70. The 200-yard freestyle relay of Weaver, Rusch, Kathryn Eckhart and Chelsea Ye took half a second off Duke’s top time and earned an NCAA B-standard in 1:30.01. Sutherland, Wixted, Rusch and Weaver teamed up for the longer 400-yard medley relay and again earned a Blue Devil record. The group’s time of 3:37.92 was just off an NCAA B-standard. In the final event Saturday night, Rusch, Weaver, Eckhart and Ye placed their names on Duke’s record board in the 400yard freestyle relay, touching the wall in 3:20.13. Weaver defended her third-place finish in the 50-yard freestyle at last year’s ACC Championships by again taking the bronze in the event. Her time of 22.19 broke yet another record for the Blue Devils. “It was a goal going in that Lauren wanted to be back on the podium,” Colella said. “In the 50 free, if one little thing is off, whether it’s the start, the turn or the finish, it can be the difference between gold, silver and bronze…. For her to repeat as the bronze medalist and to be faster and break the school record was a proud moment for Duke swimming.” The senior’s success continued in the 100-yard butterfly. Weaver earned her spot on the podium again with a third-place finish and B-standard time of 53.18 seconds. The time broke the previous school record by seven-tenths of a second. Weaver’s fellow senior Wixted finished just off the podium in both the 100- and 200-yard breaststrokes but earned B-standards in both events. Not showing signs of nerves in their first conference meet, the freshmen earned a handful of school records of their own. Rusch broke the 50-second barrier in her 100-yard freestyle Saturday with her time of 49.68 seconds. She and Weaver were the first Blue Devils in program history to break this mark. Bragg posted the school’s top time in both the 400-yard individual medley and the 200-yard backstroke. Her times of 4:18.25 and 1:57.56 were both good for NCAA B-standards.

The resilient Quakers kept the Duke lead at one when Kevin Brown scored to cut the deficit to 5-4. With Pennsylvania closing in on the Blue Devil lead, Dionne once again provided the offensive spark, scoring two more goals off assists from Deemer Class and Kyle Keenan on the wing. This helped Duke extend the lead to 9-5. “I felt like I was moving around a little bit too much on the inside, so I slowed down and let the game come to me,” Dionne said. “I thought [Kyle] Keenan, Deemer [Class] and the wings did an incredible job of drawing the double.” Wolf tied a career high by notching seven points against Stony Brook (1-2). Adding to the milestones in Duke’s blowout victory, Dionne scored his 100th goal with 6:07 to play in the first quarter.

Duke managed another strong start against the Sea Wolves, scoring seven goals on 19 shots and holding Stony Brook scoreless in the first half. Defenseman Casey Carroll helped keep the Sea Wolves off the scoreboard with five ground balls and five forced turnovers. Stony Brook netted two goals early in the third quarter to cut the lead to six, but the Blue Devils responded in the final two minutes of the quarter with two goals from Matheis and Dionne. Duke was able to maintain the lead with four more goals in the final period. The Blue Devils’ 4-0 start is a far cry from the team’s 2-4 start in 2013, which left the team’s postseason hopes hanging in the balance early. After leaving their early-season struggles behind en route to a national championship, Duke continues to play with the mindset that these early results—good or bad—won’t define the team’s season. “We don’t look at records,” Danowski said. “We just look at how we are playing.”

converted on just 7-of-21 long-range attempts this time around. But one of those would prove crucial, when Cook nailed one with 7:48 remaining to give Duke a six-point advantage, its largest all game. Cook, who has seen his minutes fluctuate lately in Duke’s crowded backcourt, made a three symbol with both of his hands as he ran back on defense and the Cameron crowd continued its game-long frenzy. “We’ve got confidence in him—other than [Andre Dawkins], he’s our best shooter on the outside,” Hood said. “That was a big-time shot. I think that was the key to the game.” Former Blue Devil Michael Gbinije, who transferred to Syracuse after his freshman year at Duke in 2011-12, hit Syracuse’s only two treys and scored a team-high eight points in the first half. He did not score in the final period, however, and the Cameron Crazies chanted “We don’t miss you” periodically. Syracuse has now lost two games in a row, having fallen to Boston College earlier in the week for its first loss of the season. “We’re going to cry all the way home,” Boeheim deadpanned when asked about the two straight losses. “At the beginning of the year if I could split with Mike, I’d probably take it without hesitation.”

and there’s a chance we can win still, but that play decided the game.” The victorious side saw the play a bit differently. “The basketball gods, they’re the best,” Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski said. “They put rodney in the two defining plays.... I think [it] was a charge, but he was in the play both times. one

turned out great for us and one didn’t, and now both teams are 1-1.” After falling victim to silent whistles at Syracuse and struggling down the stretch in Duke’s loss to North Carolina Thursday, Hood leapt up and unleashed a scream after watching the referee signal for a charge. “It was like my second charge of the season,” Hood said, “but it felt good.... I got a chance to redeem myself tonight.” A final call that went the way of the

ange in foul trouble, a plague that befell the Blue Devils in the first matchup of the season. Syracuse big men rakeem Christmas, Jerami Grant and Baye Moussa Keita all picked up four fouls, with Grant ultimately fouling out. After the orange poured in 42 points in the paint at the Carrier Dome with Parker, Jefferson, Hood and Andre Dawkins mired in foul trouble, the foul situation was on the other foot Saturday and hurt Syracuse on both ends. Defensively, the orange managed just two blocks, a far cry from the nine they had on their home court earlier this month. The addition of the Duke-Syracuse matchup to the ACC has helped the conference create what Krzyzewski called a “gold mine.” Two totally different games have produced the same result—a thrilling finish wrought with controversy. How would a potential rubber match play out on a neutral site at the ACC tournament? only two things are for sure: the game will be tight, and Hood will help to decide it down the stretch.

Blue Devils was far from the only thing to set Saturday’s game in stark contrast with Syracuse’s overtime victory Feb. 1. each team won the game better suited to the loser. Syracuse won round one, a shootout in which the teams combined to score 180 points. When the scene shifted to Durham, both teams struggled to get things clicking on the offensive end, but the Duke offensive juggernaut prevailed in a defensive struggle, usually the orange’s forte. In the opener of the ACC’s newest rivalry, Duke stayed close with unconscious outside shooting, making 15 shots from behind the arc. In the sequel, they were 7-for-21 but always seemed to hit a big triple at the right time. Marshall Plumlee found Hood in the first half to cut a 17-8 deficit to six, and Quinn Cook drilled one to build Duke’s largest lead at 51-45. Jabari Parker made all three of his 3-point attempts, with each coming in a crucial spot. “It seemed like both teams were scoring easy up at Syracuse, and today it was really difficult to score,” Krzyzewski said. “I don’t know how both teams could play any harder.” Part of what fueled the hot 3-point shooting at the Carrier Dome was Amile Jefferson’s passing out of the high post, as the sophomore was able to find open shooters when the orange zone collapsed to the middle. Jefferson rarely turned and faced the basket in that game, so Tyler ennis and Trevor Cooney stayed out with Duke’s shooters at the start of Saturday’s contest. In Saturday’s 40-minute chess match between Krzyzewski and Boeheim, Krzyzewski countered by sticking Hood in the high post instead. The Meridian, Miss., native posed a more dangerous scoring threat, hitting mid-range jumpers from the elbow and driving to the rim looking to draw contact. “rodney really handled the ball well,” Krzyzewski said. “This is a signature game for him.” Hood’s aggressiveness put the or-
