RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- The General Assembly is formally celebrating a men's NCAA basketball title coming to North Carolina for a second straight year.
The Legislature held a joint session Thursday to honor Duke University's national championship, the school's fourth under Coach Mike Krzyzewski (shuh-SHEF'-skee).
The team was introduced by Sen. Dan Blue, a Wake County Democrat who is the chairman of Duke's board of trustees.
Krzyzewski reminded lawmakers that Duke is stocked with talented people committed to service to the state. He urged legislators to use Duke's resources in any way leaders think it will help.
The University of North Carolina visited the General Assembly last year after the Tar Heels won the NCAA title.
