It’s having to move on as if it didn’t happen at all.
“I’m extremely disappointed that we could have beaten an elite program like Duke,” Donahue said. “We had a great chance, it’s going to tear me up for a long time. But I’ve got a Monday practice, and a Tuesday practice, and we’ve got to beat Wake Forest on Wednesday, that’s where the focus is at.
“It’s a tough loss for them because they played definitely well enough to win. [Duke was] deserving of winning. I’m not saying we weren’t either. They were. They played really well.”
