They quoted me

Pointing out that a Duke win has the most savor even if we aren't rivals, simply because we haven't solved them yet.

Cool Story Bro time: At the beginning of the 2017-2018 season, I posed the question on this board whether it was worth an early exit from the NCAA's if it meant a Duke sweep; it seemed a fair trade to me though I was in the minority opinion. Turns out I got my bargain - a win at Cameron in our only meeting and the UMBC loss. And no, going 1-0 isn't what I meant but it was unpleasantly eerie nonetheless.

Which is the long-form way of saying beating Duke in any circumstance is a massive deal for me.
