Mom of Duke's Wendell Carter Jr. was harassed by Rhode Island fans

Rhode Island fans shouted an expletive at the mom of Duke basketball player Wendell Carter

"That's what you want to do is build a program that develops teams year after year, and he's done that at Rhode Island". The Rams also lost to Virginia and Alabama; also Round of 32 teams. Duke took care of business during its first-round matchup against Ioana, while the Rams pulled out a thrilling overtime win against Trae Young and Oklahoma.

Dallas Sister Jean's prayers were answered again in another heart-stopper, and the Loyola-Chicago Ramblers are going to the Sweet 16, just as they did the last time they were in the NCAA Tournament 33 years ago. Take the Blue Devils to win this game over Rhode Island.

Duke's frontcourt players rank both among the top-10 prospects in the latest NBA Draft Big Board at The Step Back. "I don't even think I ever got a home visit, though". While Bobby's Sun Devils also made the tournament, they did so by the skin of their teeth, nabbing a play-in slot against Syracuse.

"He's the standard for what you like to be as a coach at this college level", Hurley said of Krzyzewski. They dominated probably the best mid-major conference.

The Rams play with a Jersey City, New Jersey fearless and tenacious approach that was instilled in their head coach, Dan Hurley.

Moscow has mostly shrugged off the measures announced by May, ridiculing the prospect of the termination of high-profile visits. By Friday morning, 33 Labour MPs had signed a parliamentary motion blaming the Russian state "unequivocally".

The stage is set for one of the most intriguing matchups of the 2018 NCAA Tournament. Smith scored eight of the Bruins' nine points in the third quarter and finished with 20, but it was not enough to keep pace with Duke's onslaught.

Grayson Allen has averaged 16.4 points, 4.2 assists and 2.8 steals over the last five games for Duke.

Hurley, 45, has been rumored as a top candidate for the vacant job at CT, where Kevin Ollie was dismissed after six seasons with the program. With any luck, Terrell and the Rams could storm through the Midwest on the way to an unlikely Final Four run, similar to Wichita State in 2013.

This is a bad look for one of the prestigious basketball programs in the country.

The Blue Devils got flowing after the opening five minutes, racking up a 33-16 lead. But Duke has the size and ability to exploit them there, and Duke will need to do that. Their talent won't let them.

Dan Hurley is reportedly the frontrunner for the vacant UConn job.
