Memo to the Duke Basketball team: get rid of those black uniforms.
It has been a scarcely mentioned topic among the Duke faithful over the years, but since Duke unveiled its black uniforms with royal blue trim, bad luck has ensued.
While researching this phenomenon I discovered that out of 31 road loses dating back to 2002, in at least 18 of them Duke wore its black road uniforms.
Duke has had its fair share of wins since they first wore the alternative away unis, but more and more they seem to suffer loses and some of them embarrassing ones.
So far in 2010-2011 Duke has two loses, both while wearing the black uniforms.
Here is a look at those games which should be reason enough to bury the black unis for good.
Note: Some additional loses may have come in the black uniforms, but could not be confirmed at the time this slideshow was created.
