There it is again, though, and it somewhat undercuts the idea that Duke gets preferential treatment. Playing that late in the East is ridiculous. They won't get to bed until 1 in the morning, if they're lucky.
On the other hand, though, Duke certainly proved in Charlotte that they were capable of a quick turnaround. The NCAAs are rugged, but it's not like it's three games in three days. This is a good time to point out that Duke is in superb condition, and to pinpoint who is responsible: Johnny Dawkins, who designed the conditioning program.
