Duke-Virginia: Hoo Are You?

By Jeff Lippman - March 02, 2007


First off, this the second time that I've noticed that Duke fans yell, "O!" during the national anthem.

Now, being a Baltimore Orioles fan--I know, I am full of self-loathing--I know that Baltimore fans are the creators of yelling "O!" because of the team's nickname being the O's.

Discussing this with the Virginia radio crew, we decided Duke has no reason to yell "O!" because no "O" appears anywhere having to do with anything Duke.

O! well.

I just want to take the time to point out the Duke mascot's taped sign on his forehead reading, "We're No. 1. Hoo Are You?" which I thought to be very clever.

The Wahoos opened the scoring with a pull up jumper from Monica Wright, but Duke's sharpshooter Abby Waner answered right back with a three for a 3-2 Duke lead after the opening two possessions.
