Notable events[edit]

On May 7, 2013 it was honored to host the second round of the epic battle of the fierce basketball rivalry between Duke's and UNC's Economics departments. The first round was at UNC's Woollen Gymnasium where UNC scraped out a victory.[2] However, the second round was all Duke, where after losing the first game, the Blue Devils pulled away and won the championship, 3 games to 1.
