(Probably) Not gonna happen.


UVA fans are generally pretty classy, and while there might be a few boos when K is introduced, I would suspect that most of us appreciate all that K has done for the game of basketball.

I will personally chant "lets go Wahoos" during the intro for every Duke player, then politely applaud when K is introduced at the end. From there? Merciless boos the rest of the night from me.

I loathe the guy and I think he's (mostly) a phony. But he's arguably the single most important person in the development of college basketball as a national sport (insomuch as the sport has any national relevance).

Sure, there are others on the list that rival K in terms of importance - Dean Smith and John Wooden come to mind. But it certainly doesn't take long the call the roll of people who are in that class of the absolute most influential people in the sport's history.
