This article (http://www.heraldsun.com/sports/18-824135.cfm) makes it sound like Pagliuca is unsure.

I can't recall the last time Duke started a senior walk-on on Senior Night, so I seriously doubt it.

I don't recall K every holding to the tradition that some other coaches have, of starting seniors on senior night, irrespective of if they are scholarship players or walk-ons. I do, however, like the tradition and wouldn't mind seeing K adopt it.

He certainly has in some cases, like Ricky Price starting as a senior, but I'm not sure it has happened for a walk-on.

Yeah, but Ricky Price was averaging 8 minutes a game in his senior season, not a whole lot, but still regular playing time. It wasn't a stretch for him to start. While it was his only start of his senior season, he had started 11 games as a junior and 29 as a sophomore.

I didn't mean that K had never done it, just that he was not wedded to it the way some other coaches have been.
