Hopefully a Saturday night game against GW will bring out a big crowd tonight. I have been a bit disappointed with the student turnout so far this season, so I hope a Saturday night game will prompt a large contingent of students to attend the game and be extra rowdy. The ironic thing is that I will be unable to attend the game tonight because it is my fiance's birthday and for some strange reason she doesn't want to celebrate at the Palumbo Center, (what is she thinking?)
This was the student section during The City Game earlier this season
I would like to send a big thank you to all of the faithful fans who have helped fill up the Palumbo Center more than I have seen it filled in a long time. Getting more fans is a fairly simple task, all the Dukes have to do is keep winning games. The Dukes play their biggest home game of the season next Wednesday night when UMass comes to town, and a win tonight against GW would help bring out a large number of fans for that game.
The frustrating thing is that the Dukes have 3 other huge games left on the schedule and they are all on the road at Xavier, Dayton, and Charlotte which is off to a surprising start in A10 play.
