Abstract:

"For fifty years the rivalry between Duke and Carolina has featured famous brawls, endless controversy, long-nurtured hatred - and some of the best basketball ever played in the history of the sport." "Blue Blood is a chronicle of the Duke-Carolina fight as it has evolved over the last fifty years. Art Chansky details the colorful, revered, and respected rivalry - for the first time ever. Chansky has seen every Duke-Carolina game since 1968 and now gives readers the never-before-told story behind the story of a sporting challenge that has polarized the nation.".

"The Duke-Carolina rivalry has fostered more than thirty former players from the two schools playing or coaching in the NBA; it has cultivated a maniacal subculture of fans who camp out for weeks just to get tickets to the seasonal matchups; it has enchanted a nation of spectators to watch games between the archrivals, garnering some of the highest regular-season TV ratings in history. Blue Blood celebrates the history of this rivalry, the traditions, the heritage, and, most important - the spectacular basketball."--BOOK JACKET.
