After the game, only one Duke player, Wendell Moore, stayed behind with Coach K to shake hands with UNC players.
I'm pretty sure @thewendellmoore was the only @DukeMBB player to shake hands afterward. That REALLY sticks with me. Speaks well of Moore, poorly of the program. How one handles defeat says SOOOO much more than how one handles victory. https://t.co/0bNoOdMenP

Duke didn't shake hands with UNC? No surprise there, Coach K at least went out with consistency
