Duke basketball has at its core a group of people who have been to the mountaintop but only after trudging across the desert, the barren days when winning at all seemed unlikely and being a powerhouse a joke of a dream.
Among those was Doug Hinds, who passed away this morning in California. If you knew Doug, as many of you did, you know what a loss this is, but it's more than just a basketball loss. He was both a good and fine man. We couldn't possibly be more devastated than we are right now. We'll have a fuller article posted as soon as possible.
