I like Duke basketball, but I dislike that they are just another Kentucky now. A place for top talent to go for one year and then on to the NBA. I miss the 4 year players and Duke doesn't even have the 1 guy that EVERYBODY hates anymore. I miss watching everybody hate on Laettner, Wojo, Reddick, Allen, etc.

Totally agree. That's why I'm a big fan of the NBA changing the rule so that one and done type of players can just go straight to the NBA, it will equalize the talent pool again and everyone will be vying for really really good, but not necessarily elite level high school players.

As much as I want Duke to win the whole thing in April, I am not ready to put the crown on their head just yet.

Holy shit Duke dodged a bullet tonight. Almost went to bed at about the 10 min mark in the 2D half. Glad I stayed up. Quite a comeback.

They really played hard to come back from 23 down. Barrett and Williamson are the whole team.

Duke is just scary. even when they are down 23 points and playing statistically their worst game ever they can come back against the top 25 team and find a way to win.

No let-down, they need to play State and UNC coming up.

Wasn't the D League, now the G League, created in part for that very purpose?

I wish they'd do something in regards to the one and done rule. Too many kids have thrown their BB futures and a free education away on the "advice" of an agent.

I'm really looking forward to the Tennessee vs Kentucky game. The winner of that game may very well be playing in the national championship game.

Stretch, you care to make a friendly wager? The last couple times Duke played State, State won. Not this time.

Someone at NC State doesn't think much of Williamson....

You might be pleasantly surprised. Kentucky is favored by 3.5 pts. I'm guessing Vegas thinks they are about even and are giving the Cats 3.5 pts as a home court advantage.

I'm really looking forward to this game.

Good luck to your Cats.

Coach K was pleasant and forgiving this evening.

Let me know what I owe for the bet I never accepted!

Lol, no worries, friend, no worries.

Not surprised Kentucky won, surprised it was a blowout. Tennessee has a very soft schedule, and it's easy to argue that they are over-ranked. I think that was their first game of the top five team? I'll be interested to see how both teams respond. Right now if I were a betting man my money would be on Kentucky to go further than Tennessee.
