From Diehard Sport:

It wouldn’t be rivalry week without a mascot head getting stolen.  On Wednesday, the head of the Duke Blue Devils mascot was stolen and put up on a stake on top of a student store in Chapel Hill.

A photo showed up on Instagram of people wearing the mascot head before it was placed on the stake. The photo posted to Instagram reportedly had the following caption: “Shout out to my brother and his friends for stealing the Duke mascot head and mounting it on a stake.”

Here's a look at the photos reportedly posted on Instagram (the photo above was also part of the same post):

WGHP in North Carolina shared the following information:

Derek Rowles, an executive producer for ABC 11 in Raleigh, said Chapel Hill Police have taken possession of the Duke mascot head. It was removed from the bookstore around 3:40 p.m. Wednesday.

This incident likely heightened the tension between the schools prior to Wednesday's basketball game, which Duke won 73-68.

Preparation pays off for Plumlee

You may recall that I picked Florida State’s Michael Snaer to be this season’s ACC Player of the Year. When I get it wrong, I get it wrong. But the bulk of the ACC media picked NC State’s C.J. Leslie to win that award and that’s not going to happen, either.  If post-season voting were to take place now, neither would make first-team All-ACC. Plumlee is averaging 18.2 points...

There won’t be any storming the court in Cameron Indoor Stadium on Mike Krzyzewski’s watch

The Duke Blue Devils mounted a second half comeback to beat rival North Carolina 73-68 in the first of two meetings between the schools.

Unfortunately for them, Mike Krzyzewski had other ideas and stopped...

She celebrated with a little dance and a pretty solid duckface. The post...

Plumlee leads No. 2 Duke past rival UNC

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- With its star big man on the bench with foul trouble, Duke went small to beat its top rival -- and one of its smallest players came up big. The run that propelled the second-ranked Blue Devils to a 73-68 victory over North Carolina on Wednesday night started when Mason Plumlee sat down and backup guard Tyler Thornton warmed up. "I think the hero for us...

Duke hangs on against UNC

Dwight Howard apologizes for tweet about Palestine

At least Dwight didn’t say he was hacked. I am not sure why he is apologizing for though, if that is how he feels, that is how he feels. I can see apologize for making a political comment he didn’t mean to make, but how can you offend someone with your belief? It would be like apologizing for being Catholic to a Jewish person, you can’t control how others feel about an issue...
