Alumni reunite for March Madness

During the March 8 game between Duke University and the University of North
Carolina, Blue Devils basketball fans camped out in Game On!'s cavernous
One group in particular, a collective of about 20 fans sitting
against the bar's back wall and dressed in royal blue, rooted in solidarity.
They looked like old friends, but in reality, the university was the only thing
they had in common.
At a competitive time like this, they said, Duke people
need to be around other Duke people. Which is why these fans, members of the
school's local alumni association, the Duke Club of Boston, chose to watch the
pre-NCAA Tournament March Madness matchup with fellow graduates instead of with
their usual Boston-area friends.
Only makes sense.
