    carolina is mighty glad they didn't have to play in Hinkle. If they had then the heels would have been down by north of 50 before the Bulldogs let off the gas.

    How about Butler's home court, Hinkle Fieldhouse? Pretty delirious...at least Gonzaga would agree.

    Any team that comes to Cameron Indoor Stadium you are already down by 10! The hardest job in College Basketball is being a ref in Cameron. Especially when Duke is behind. The ref's also change there whistles at the ten minute mark of each half because they are worn out.

    And how was best defined again? Size?-doesn't matter for Duke. Fan enthusiasm?-I certainly would not have listed Kentucky's Rupp Arena as number 10! I could go on, but I think most posters get my point.

    The Carrier Dome? I don't get that one. Isn't that a football stadium?

    Once again ESPN is garbage! Quote another source that has some credibility.
