Afterthoughts of MSG

Just read the Andy Katz article and for the most part it’s spot on. The only part that caught me off guard was: “This isn’t a national title contender, but one that can certainly make some noise in March.” I’m not sure you can count out any top ten team in December any more than you can anoint a champion … Read More

An ugly first half turns into a route for a Duke team looking for some consistency.  Duke got 24 points from Nolan Smith today who did it all over the court. Shooting 10-17. Jon Scheyer also put up numbers today off the heels of his 36 point game against Gardner-Webb, Scheyer added 20 tonight against better competition.  Singler is still … Read More

Brian Zoubek only had 4, while Lance Thomas had 2. It’s a bit more understandable for Zoubek as he only played … Read More

More in a bit, Duke as usual not getting the points from the forward spot, 0 from Lance Thomas, and only 6 from the Plumlees combined. 0 from Brian Zoubek, it will continue to be their undoing if it isn’t addressed. The other glaring stat is the turnover battle, Duke with 11, WI only 4.
