    The Sinking of the Maine | History Today

    Historically speaking, Maine has not done well. I expect similar results Saturday at 5:30pm on the basketball court as the Blue Devils host the Maine (I had to look up their mascot) Black Bears.

    Not to be coy, but a victory for Duke was never in doubt in this game.

    Frank Jackson- Did not play. Sore foot.
    Grayson Allen- Did not play. Turf toe.

    Those two have led Duke in every category up until this game. Adjustments and experiments with who was on the court were made by Coach K. Luke Kennard had a career game with them out of the line up, and he wasn't selfish a bit. If by "hanging with Duke" means they were within 14 at half then I'll agree.

    Oh, I am not saying it wouldn't have been. Just saying Maine hung with Duke for a lot longer than I had anticipated.
