“Y’all only saw my son do the speed limit,” the elder Trent Sr. said in phone interview on Saturday. He said his son, and Duke’s other players, had to sacrifice some of their abilities in order to try to win a national championship. Duke finished with a 28-9 record and lost 85-81 in overtime to Kansas in the NCAA tournament’s Elite 8. Trent Sr. said the way the system was designed, his son brought something that was needed and that’s how he was used.
