Playing for Duke isn’t just showing up every day. It’s a mindset that is captured in everything we do. It’s personified in the way we play the game. This series will show you, rather than tell you, what it means to be part of this program. At the end of each video, you should walk away with one prominent thought: That’s Duke Basketball.

At the time of March 9, 1986, No. 1 Duke was seeking its first ACC title in six years, looking to garner it against a talented Georgia Tech squad.

After a strong defensive effort that included a late defensive stand in the final seconds, the Blue Devils managed to edge the Yellow Jackets by a score of 68-67.
