Duke Fans Are Scum
Thursday night, Duke beat NC State in a barn burner to tie the season series at 1-1 with a score of 98-85. The Cameron Crazies were the ones making headlines this time instead of anyone on the court.
5'11' freshman Tyler Lewis was at the free throw line with just under 14 minutes to go in the second half when a couple of chants broke out from the student section. During his first free throw, you can clearly hear them say "past your bedtime!" Alright, no harm done there, right?
But it is during the second free throw that has Duke fans in hot water. Lewis' grandmother recently passed away, and if you listen carefully, it sounds like they are chanting "how's your grandma?"
"It was mostly 'past your bedtime,' but there was an instant when a brief number of students chanted about Tyler's grandmother," Rick Lewis, Tyler's father said. "It wasn't the entire student section, I think a few tried to outdo themselves."
Regardless, the Cameron Crazies have been known to do some pretty unorthodox things, but this is inexcusable and unacceptable. I don't know what can be done about this, but the NCAA should absolutely look into this and there should be action taken against Duke and quickly.
