Neither do I.

Crazy Baylor/Texas game last night. Seven players ejected in OT for rushing off the bench during an altercation.

Seven ejected in Texas Longhorns' OT win over No. 14 Baylor Bears - ESPN

Yep. They never seem to succumb to pressure—which is all the more impressive considering how young they are. Jay Bilas was raving about that last night.

Just when it looks like they're going to lose...someone steps up when it matters.

That says a lot.

Even though I'm a UNC fan and Duke is my sworn enemy...I haven't been paying much attention to them and somehow missed this.

Sexual assault allegations against Duke’s Rasheed Sulaimon raise questions only Mike Krzyzewski can answer - The Washington Post

I didn't even realize he was off the team until two days ago. I didn't even watch the UNC/Duke game at Cameron because I knew my nerves couldn't take it so I was unaware that he was gone.

I wonder that myself. Sadly some people are using this as ammunition in the typical fan squabbling. Inexcusable. This is more serious than any sports rivalry and should be treated with a commensurable amount of solemnity.

I agree. I don't like Duke and I take perverse joy in watching them lose...but no one wishes this kind of stuff on any team or player.

Just as an illustration of that: Kentucky (vs. Georgia) was down 9 with 9 minutes left on the clock. They ended up winning by 8.

Hey...I'm no fan (wrong color blue) but I give props when they are due.

This team is special.

Nice. That should actually count for two points.

Yeah, it's basically a simultaneous steal and field goal.
