Duke 77 Georgetown 89–first thoughts…

By January 30, 20103 Comments

Well no sense in beating around the bush, Duke once again got what it deserved, an butt-kicking. There was nothing good to say about Duke on offense or defense. A team that did not compete, woefully unprepared, slow, unemotional…there aren’t many positive attributes you can say except maybe that the bench got some floor time.

Duke will have to rebound and rebound in a big way from this loss, I’m not sure what can be learned from this one, just as in the N.C. State game. Just becoming a bit of a trend that on the road this team seems to fold up with the first sign of adversity.

Duke was unable to defend the post, the perimeter or anywhere in between…even the subs for Georgetown had a very easy time shredding Dukes porous defense.

I hate to use the phrase phoned-it-in, but if they didn’t phone it in then the problems are worse than I even thought.

    Is Duke ever going to figure out how to stop giving up lay up after lay up. This happens every game and it is sickening.Also, I have never seen a Duke team commit so many fouls. We can’t ever get into the flow of the game because of the constant stoppages of play. Thank God Lance Thomas and Brian Zoubek will be gone next year.

    Why didn’t K call a Time out in the 2nd half. Seems like he just said oh well. Why didn’t he caLL FOR A ZONE WHEN THEY COULDN’T STOP THEM WITH MAN TO MAN.

    Why doesn’t he try three big men and two guards when the outside game isn’t working.

    K set the tone for the games by pre-complainning about his team being tired.

    The good news I took from this loss is that Duke should be a deeper team next year, since Singler is obviously not ready for the NBA game yet. He should be back next year and the team will be a bit deeper.
