Traditional bonfire on Main Quad after basketball victory

Duke's men's basketball team defeated North Carolina 73-68 Feb. 13 with a comeback victory in the second half, in one of the biggest rivalries in college athletics. After the game, students gathered on the Main Quad to celebrate the victory with the traditional bonfire, in which students carry residence hall benches to be burned.
