    I'd check with BD80 as he might have them etched on his stone tablets somewhere...

    [redacted] them and the horses they rode in on.

    I have bookmarked the Duke BB archives as Duke Basketball Stats Guru, which may offer some clues to the files on GoDuke.com.

    Obscure request. From the box above, those teams were really bad at rebounding😀.

    Backstory?

    That's exactly what I was looking for. There is an auction on eBay for a ticket to that game but it says it was played at the "Duke University Gym" and everything I have seen says the game was played at GT. Could it have been a freshman game???

    Observations:

    1. Georgia Tech players didn't even have first names back then. This was so long ago that Bobby Cremins had dark hair.

    2. Concessions were provided by The Varsity, a popular local eatery. Unsold hot dogs from that game are still available today.

    3. Turnovers were not recorded, but witnesses say that John Seward called a timeout that Duke did not have in the final minute, adding a bit of drama to the game. It became known as "Seward's Folly".

    4. Every player in the game committed a foul except Duke's Carl Sapp, which was the origin of the fan chant "Carly Doesn't Foul!".

    5. The lead official was Randall "Radio" Valentine.

    6. The game was sponsored by Del Monte, who provided the peach baskets.
