Duke fans were ecstatic about last night's win over UNC. :: Greg Nelson/SI
Duke students celebrated the Blue Devils' 89-78 victory over North Carolina like any good college fan base should -- by burning things. Of course, Tar Heel fans would point to the absence of PG Ty Lawson as a big factor in last night's decision, but as our good friend Luke Winn says, the speedy point guard would've made no difference for UNC.

King and Queen of College Park
Congratulations to Maryland coach Gary Williams, who become the seventh active Division-I coach to reach 600 wins. No disrespect to Williams, but we're much more impressed with women's basketball coach Brenda Frese whose Terrapins are 23-3 and No. 4 in the nation. Oh yeah, Frese is pregnant and expecting twins next month.
