    The only place I think you can really see Cal's influence on K is the idea of the pro day that Duke adopted a few years after UK started it (although obviously Duke has had scouts close to the program for years.)

    Edit: I should add that I don't give Cal credit for getting K to do OAD... K was already TRYING to recruit these guys, he just wasn't landing them. Many coaches are and were recruiting multiple top players... Cal was just the first to have the space to give them all time after he cut down the UK team when he got there, and you need playing time to bring the guys in. Cal took a LOT of crap for being the first to be able to do it, though.

    It’s lasted longer than UNC’s season.

    Just got ITT.

    Are we reliving that wonderful night in Greenville, SC when Carolina dominated Duke in the 2nd round to advance to the Sweet 16 and eventually the Final Four?

    Ah yes that was a great night. Frank Martin outcoached and outclass Coach K that night.

    I knew people would be talking about that night for years to coming.

    I thought maybe this was a Carolina recruit so I googled him. Nope, a Dukie who will be at his third high school in three years. These type of kids are the worst, or I suppose it could be his mom/dad.

    Edit: Or, I could be jumping to conclusions, but I doubt it. See this crap all the time around here.

    He was the one who was flirting with overseas and many were worried wouldn't actually end up attending Duke next year, I believe. Don't think he was eligible for his high school all Star games.
