Can the Blue Devils parlay that talent into a second straight Burlington County Freedom Division championship? Only time will tell, Williams said. "We won't expect miracles at the start of the season because these are young players, but we're fully capable of having a winning season after they've been in game situations," Williams said.

The last time anyone remembers seeing the Duke University basketball team at the Spectrum, Thomas Hill was grabbing his head in disbelief, with tears running down his cheeks. Grant Hill was skipping upcourt in jubilation, and Christian Laettner was spotted beneath a mob of hysterical teammates. Laettner had just ended Kentucky's goal of advancing to the Final Four with a buzzer-beating turnaround jump shot that sent the Blue Devils on instead, a fitting climax to what many called the greatest college game they'd ever seen.
