Lady in blue! Coming through!
In case anyone forgot—Duke and UNC athletes don’t exactly exchange Emoji-laden texts with each other in between classes, and their athletic rivalry goes far beyond basketball.
Both schools have prided themselves in being national contenders in lacrosse, and Wednesday night, each put their “pride” on the table.
Only one limped away.
With eight minutes to go in the fourth quarter, Tar Heels attackman Jimmy Bitters rounded the net looking for an open man. Instead he found Duke defenseman Chris Hipps, who appeared to be looking to slash Bitters’ groin into a smoothie.
Hipps whipped his longstick down viciously, and as you can see from the footage, hit paydirt.
And the debate begins: Was it an intentional blow to the son-satchel? A premeditated panini plastering? An orchestrated offense to the organzola?
It depends on who you ask, but it looks bad. It wouldn’t be a stretch of the imagination to see such hated rivals go at each others soft parts in a close game.
Through a superhuman feat of strength, Bitters was able to get off the field under his own power. Duke went on to beat UNC 11-8 but should know the old gods (and the new) frown upon such wanton acts of sack-walloping.
Remember boys: Karma is a crotch shot in a blue dress.
