Welcome to Episode 6 of our oral history of the 2001 Duke Men’s Basketball National Champions.

When we last left the Blue Devils, they had lost their big man, Carlos Boozer, and were counting on little used Casey Sanders and Reggie Love to man the middle. But the really bad news was Duke’s next opponent, the North Carolina Tar Heels with some of the best big men in college basketball.

What happened next was shocking. Duke blew the Tar Heels out, playing fast and small and showing more heart than anyone thought possible. Join DBR Podcast host Jason Evans as he talks with Shane Battier, Casey Sanders, Mike Dunleavey, Jay Williams, Reggie Love and the rest of the 2001 team about that fateful game against UNC.
