Contest Recap

It’s the No. 2 toughest ticket in American sports.

Duke students camp out for weeks (in all weather conditions) for the opportunity to play a part in one of sports’ greatest spectacles.

It’s Senior Night.

It’s the greatest rivalry in college athletics.

It takes place in the best basketball venue in the world (according to Sports Illustrated, and probably these supportive Blue Devils too).

At charity auctions, two tickets have been sold for as much as $40,000.

It’s the first-ever DBP Ultimate Crazie Contest, and we offered up two tickets for this year’s Duke/UNC game to the passionate and dedicated Duke fan we can find.

Before we officially opened the contest, we invited fans to help us decide how the contest should go down via our polls on DukeBluePlanet.com.  Fans decided on an essay/photo/media contest, with a behind-the-scenes tour also given to the winner.   The contest was open to everyone (by everyone we mean Duke fans all over the USA and the world – Tar Heel fans could not apply).

Instructions to enter the contest were as follows:

1. Express what Duke/Duke Basketball means to you using words/photos/media (Be creative!).

2. Email your name/contest entry to Dave Bradley at db@dukeblueplanet.com by January 27th

3. Check back about February 11th as we announce the winner on DukeBluePlanet.com and our Twitter page

If you are a diehard Duke fan who has dreamed of witnessing Duke battle UNC in Cameron… This one was for you!

At stake… Tickets to observe first-hand the most fun and intense game in all of sports… Plus a few other perks and prizes.
