View Full Version : JV Team?

Someone help me out here, I was looking for a solid date for the Duke/UNC game at Cameron and found that on the UNC website they have a JV team. Does Duke have a JV team? I thought the days of freshmen and JV college teams were over? Thanks for the response!

Duke hasn't had a JV team since the 1970s.

Duke hasn't had a JV team since the 1970s.

And no ACC team has a JV team besides Carolina. You can only play on JV for two years, apparently....Looks like they play games against DII and DIII schools as well as local community colleges...http://tarheelblue.cstv.com/sports/m-baskbl-jv/sched/unc-m-baskbl-jv-sched.html

Actually, Duke had a JV team until 1982. Richard Ford, Class of 1984, was promoted from JV to Varsity.

I was also at Duke when they had the JV team in the early 80s. In fact, I used to play pickup against one or two of those guys in Card and egomaniacally thought to myself, "I don't think they're any better than me..." (Of course, I never had the cojones to say that out loud... )
