What Saturday's Game Means, And What It Doesn't


And so it is this weekend, on the eve before Duke and UNC’s men’s basketball teams square off on the hardwood, that a loss so jarring and so tragic forces us to remember what Saturday’s game means, and what it does not. The game, the zenith of a year’s worth of effort and anticipation, is but the focal point of a rivalry pitting two school communities, two fan-bases against one another. It brings joy and pride; elation and rage; anxiety and relief. The life of Eve Marie Carson meant much more. (GoDuke.com)
