Hey guys--

Wasn't sure what category to file this in (and you most definitely do NOT
suck), but wanted to point out a slight inaccuracy in your otherwise great
Duke-Carolina rivalry retrospective. In Doyel's recent book, according to
what I recall as first-hand quotes from Tink himself, the play on which he
hit the jumper to beat Carolina was NOT called by K, but improvised by
Banks. According to Gene's version, K called a play that would have given
the potential winning shot to someone else, but as they were taking the
court following the timeout, he called his teammates together and demanded
that they give him the ball instead. They did and the rest is history.

Keep up the great work.
