Duke Basketball TicketsNow that the Superbowl is over (are you happy the Giants won??  Poor Tom Brady.  Thwarted by Eli Manning AGAIN) We’ve entered that time of year when there’s not really a ton going on in the world of sports.  Sure there’s basketball and hockey, but playoffs for the NBA and NHL are still months away and March Madness doesn’t start for another month.

Clearly the most exciting game on the horizon is the North Carolina vs. Duke basketball game, which always draws huge attention due to their fierce rivalry.

So, here’s your hodge podge top events for the upcoming week:
