  • I like the NIT better already. Some good games last night, and it's only the first round. I'm telling you, it will be very entertaining, and people will watch it!

      Although Drexel dissapointed. Everyone claims they should have been in the tournament. They could have been but not before Kan St. or Cuse.

      • Drexel had a very good resume. Kansas State was pretty overblown, IMO. I still like Stanford in better than KState. I would have preferred Cuse over Illinois, but I can see why it happened the way it did.

        Drexel got screwed because Butler, Xavier, and Nevada lost in their conference tournaments. That's 3 extra bids right there, which likely would have included KState, Cuse, and Drexel.

        • Drexel just wasnt up for that game. NC State wasnt even in the NIT before their ACC run. So I feel that NC State was actually playing for something last night. They were happy to be in post season play. As where Drexel was down because they didnt make it to the NCAA tournament. Which resulted in a loss.

          • Let's not discount the talent factor. Drexel is not nearly as talented as an ACC team. I do agree that the team was very down from not making the NCAA's, though. lack of talent + malaise = bad loss

            • I really had no problem with Drexel not getting in. They finished fourth in their conference in conference play and were 1-5 against the top three. They only beat one team in the NCAA Tournament in Villanova and lost to the likes of Rider and William & Mary.

              • Solid RPI for a Colonial Conference team, 13 road wins, including at Villanova. Yes, there were a few bad losses, but every team has at least one of those...

                  • Wow. I am just speechless... That looks kind of like how Rick Barnes coaches in big games...

                      Overrated? How can someone who constiantly gets hated by everyone ( including many Duke fans) on be overrated? come on sweetness I expect better from you atleased..

                        • I think Paulus is overrated as much as he was overrated coming into the season. He did fine as a freshman PG last year when he had Williams and Reddick to help. Now, he has essentially no one, and he has had to assume a lot of leadership in addition to his various other responsibilities. Fact is that Paulus just isn't that guy. He's a complementary player, not a star. The problem I see with Duke is that there are no stars, though Sheyer (probably mispelled) looks like a stud...

                          • I'm not worried about Duke at all in the NCAA's. When I heard GW was an 11 seed, I prayed for a rematch with Duke to avenge last year's loss. I don't think they're going very far...

                              Paulus's is doing better this year in every area f his game besides assits, and assists are understandable when you lose your two leaing scorers.

                              • People expected him to be Bobby Hurley from the early 90's. That was the level of expectation, so he was overrated coming into the season. I think he's a more talented version of Steve Blake. I don't like his style of play, and I think his lateral quickness is poor. Still, he is a talented player who will play 4 years for Duke, will likely end up a coach some day, and can be a role player on an NBA team.
