No. 1 Duke

I thought it worth quoting this morning's Washington Post:

"Redick missed a three-point attempt, the last shot of his college career, with 15 seconds left, and was taken out of the game with nine seconds to play. He was crying as he reached the Duke bench."

As a University of Maryland-College Park graduate, I am obligated to hate Duke University. But I don't. I respect the program, and, more importanty, I respect J.J. Redick. He may be confident - dare I say arrogant - but, damn it, he plays every game like it could be his last. Redick, who hussles on every play, is a dying breed in collegiate athletics. A number of Terrapins could learn something from him.
