Thoughts from Press Row

OKLAHOMA CITY — Here are some initial thoughts from press row as Duke’s 7 p.m. Sweet 16 tip against Texas A&M approaches:

  • Duke is wearing its black jerseys for the third time this year. The other occasions? Losses to North Carolina in Chapel Hill and in the ACC Tournament.
  • The Aggies’ band and D.U.M.B. are going back and forth right now as the crowd begins to file in. The early verdict? Texas A&M, in a landslide. Duke fans should hope the actual basketball game isn’t as one-sided; the Duke players even gave an A&M trumpeter a standing ovation before after a nice improvised diddy.
  • I’m currently sitting on my computer, watching Davidson-Kansas on March Madness on Demand, and directly next to a TV monitor that will show the ESPN feed of this game. Pretty cool.

Back with more as the game progresses…
