After Wednesday night’s 74-61 win in front of a fired-up crowd at the Comcast Center, Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski had a message for the Cameron Crazies:
“I’d like to ask our fans to respond. I don’t think they realize how important they are for this team. This team is trying to develop and don’t just watch them, be with them. They need your support. This Saturday let’s be out there at noon and be the Cameron Crazies. If you don’t want to do it, then don’t, but it will be a mistake. I think sometimes you just take things for granted.”
Duke undergraduates have struggled to their 1,200-seat section this fall, and the athletic department has begun to sell an increasing number of general admission tickets to offset the empty rows.
The Blue Devils take on St. John’s at 12 p.m. in their first home game since losing to Florida State last weekend.
