Springfield, Mass - The Blue Devil Nation’s Andrew Slater was on hand to cover the HoopHall Classic in Springfield, Massachusetts this past Monday where Kyrie Irving and company were participating. Irving, of course, is Duke’s point guard of the future and Blue Devil fans anxiously await his arrival in late July when he will be on campus.
The first half was kind of difficult for us, especially for me. It was a big game, you know, national television and..
Cory Joseph had a great first half.
Yeah, but it was a great effort on our part. We had a great second half, but we couldn’t come through.
Can you talk about the end of the game situation? You went coast-to-coast. What were you looking for on that possession?
Oh, I was looking to get to the basket as soon as possible. Yeah, I just wanted to get a bucket because our team needed a bucket. They were up by two and I had a chance to close it out, but I just couldn’t come through.
What is it like to play in this tournament? The Hall of Fame nearby, big crowds, quality teams, and ESPNU televising it?
