Fitt: Duke’s dramatic cultural overhaul pays off with regional triumphColumns
CONWAY, S.C. — The rowdy Duke players were getting impatient. They had been maintaining their position in right-center field for several minutes, holding up a banner to commemorate their triumph in the Conway Regional, posing for a team photo. But head coach Chris Pollard’s television interview just outside the dugout was running long, and they couldn’t take the photo without the skipper. So they chanted his number — “One, four! One, four!” — but Pollard was wearing headphones, he couldn’t hear them. Finally the interview ended, and Pollard sprinted out to join his players — who went wild.
