I wasn't all that excited about the WBC, but it has been drawing me in some. Its hard to not be thrilled at the sight of competitve baseball being played, and players giving a damn. Dustin Pedroia is keeping a blog during the WBC, which is cool. Insight from within is always a good read. I wasn't aware Dustin hadn't homered opposite field before in his career which made his long drive last night even more impressive, though it fell just short. Seems dude is getting locked in and showing some power already.
The Dukies lost again to the rival Tar Heels, 79-71. It was a pretty tight game throughout with the score seperation remaining under 7 points until the final minutes. The Blue Devils played rather well considering, but couldn't quite matchup enough to pull off the upset when the game got late. Now its off to the ACC Tournament this coming weekend. The Dukies go in as the #3 seed behind UNC and Wake Forest. We'll see if the team can keep improving, get healthy, and get ready for the Big Dance the following week.
