Final what?

MARTINSVILLE, Va. — Dale Earnhardt Jr. had no plans to watch the two semifinal games of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament on Saturday. To be honest, Earnhardt hasn’t been following the college playoffs at all.

“I don’t even know who’s in it,” Earnhardt said. “(North) Carolina ain’t in it, so I ain’t paying no attention.”

Avid basketball fan and ardent Duke partisan Jeff Burton would have been paying attention had his Blue Devils advanced beyond their first game. But Duke lost a No. 2 vs. No. 15 seed matchup to Lehigh.

Accordingly, Burton wasn’t interested in talking about the Final Four.

“You’d have to talk to me about the final 64,” the driver of the No. 31 Chevrolet quipped after a visit to the Martinsville media center on Saturday.
