DURHAM, N.C. -- 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.
Playing its third game in as many nights and facing a seven-point halftime deficit against North Carolina in the semifinals of the 2017 ACC Tournament, Duke put on a masterful performance after the break to stun the Tar Heels. No play epitomized the verve of the Blue Devils’ comeback more than this sequence from Harry Giles, in which he erases a UNC shot on one end before racing the floor to receive and finish an emphatic alley-oop pass from Grayson Allen. Duke would win the game by 10 points on its way to a record 14th ACC Tournament title.
