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.
In this episode, former Blue Devil Shelden Williams talks about what No. 1 vs. No. 2 means to him, and what it was like to be a part of the matchup against No. 2 Texas in 2005.
The Blue Devils dropped the Longhorns by a score of 97-66, as J.J. Redick led the way with 41 points, with 27 of those coming from behind the arc.
Williams himself added 23 points to push Duke to 9-0 in the early going of that season.
