What Had Happened Was: 11/16/16
Oh, you don’t know? We got you.
The Kansas Jayhawks and Duke Blue Devils did not disappoint Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden, as the game went down to the wire. Duke had tied the game, 75-75, with less than 20 seconds left in regulation, giving Kansas guard Frank Mason III the last shot.
Duke fans should be proud of their team, which is currently missing three big-name players due to injury.

Duke was missing 3 potential lottery picks and took one of, for my money, the four best teams in college hoops to the wire. They’ll be fine.

BET hosted a whole program to honor and thank President Barack Obama and the first family for what they did during their eight years in the White House. There were laughs, there was song, but most importantly, folks celebrated like it was 1999.
