    MBB: Duke v Florida St (Sat, 12/30, 2 ET, CBS) Pre-Game and In-Game Thread

    More than a little concerned about the atmosphere in Cameron on Saturday. Who's going to fire up the boys?

    most students will not be there...there were only a few dozen last week vs evansville. there will (likely) be no cheerleaders, and the band will be all alumni/community members.
    It's being reported that due to coronavirus fears, Harvard has asked students not to return from spring break, and for classes to be held online.

    Not to be outdone, UNC told students to stop coming to class 27 years ago under Dean Smith.

    If no students will be there, how did they distribute tickets to fill that space? I will gladly help!

    they sell them on goduke. presumably this game is long sold out.

    Why would they sell them their before offering them to Iron Dukes? Sounds like a prime opportunity for scalpers when tickets are first introduced to the public before Iron Dukes.

    Because they can charge 80$ a pop for tickets they've already "sold" to the student body.

    It's been several years since I've bought tickets, but if I recall used to be that they would first be available for ID purchase before being available to the general public.

    Tickets are going to get scalped regardless of whether they go to ID or not.

    As I recall, Iron Dukes are asked to request tickets shortly after the schedule is announced

    Any word on Javin's injury status?

    There's an article on the main page saying Javin will play against FSU, but no source for it.

    Where to watch the game in Brooklyn Heights...

    My wife and I are taking the kids to NY for New Years. We have no idea where we can watch the in the Brooklyn Heights area. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    O'Keefe's on Court St. is a solid sports bar in the neighborhood. If you're up for some BBQ, Hill Country in Willoughby Plaza is a good spot to watch games as well.

    Might also be fun to walk over the BK Bridge and catch the game at one of the many bars in the Seaport area in Manhattan. Jeremy's Ale House is a favorite of mine - dive bar with good fried seafood.

    Enjoy your trip.

    I will be leaving my -20 temp in SD to be at this FSU game. I am a HS math teacher and used up all my personal leave in Oct and was thinking of not attending a Duke game this year. But even though the atmosphere won't be the same without the students, I just had to see this team in person.
    Sure hope this ends better than the last game I was at-->NCSU last year.

    Quite the temperature swing going to the packed heat of Cameron! Hope you can bring the noise and energy to make up for the smaller student crowd.

    Has the average height or students fallen or is there now a height restriction on non-athlete students?

    Just find Montague Street. There's a basement place just down some stairs. They have music in the cafe at night and a bit of revolution in the air.

    Iím worried heíll get tangled up in blue, but maybe thatís okay, as long as it is the proper shade of blue.

    I posted this in another thread but thought it bears repeating:

    12/5/2016 we beat Tennessee State by only 10, a game in which we led by 4 at the half and by 3 with 12 minutes left in the game.
    12/21/2016 we beat Elon by only 10 (the Grayson tripping game). They were up 1 at the half and we led by only 4 with 16 minutes left.
    12/30/2015 we trailed Long Beach State for most of the first half, before entering halftime up by 6
    12/29/2014 we led Toledo by only 4 at the half

    These post-holiday break games are always a grind. It was encouraging that we shot so well against Evansville after the exam break, but the difference is that during that break the team continued to practice every day. Iím expecting a close game but if we play to our strengths we should be able to pull it out.
