One of my best HS friends was a Duke fan. We were in 8th grade in 1966...

...when Kentucky (Pat Riley, Louie Dampier) beat Duke (Bob Verga) 83-79 in the NCAA tourney semi-finals. I loved it when UK won and we got to talk smack to him. He might have been the only Duke fan in all of Kentucky that year.

Kentucky went on to lose to Texas Western (Glory Road movie) in the championship.

So, Duke almost was the team to play Texas Western in the final that year.
