  • If you want me to put it honestly -- dook has too many white guys. I am a white guy saying that to beat it all. But realistically, besides Nelson (who has played awful) and Henderson, dook has no one who can create their own shot. Scheyer, Paulus and Singler all rely too heavily on the outside perimeter jumper. As has always been the case, if you rely solely on that jumper, you will have those days when nothing goes right.

    Also, when are they ever going to get a legit post presence for when they have these days when their jumpers are not falling?

    Thankfully for them, they play hard defense that always keeps them in games.

    In any case, I hope West Virginia doesn't let me down.

    60-49 WVA with 4:23 remaining

    • The refs are going to give Duke ever opportunity to win. They have shot twice as many free throws as WVU.

      Thanks to Bone Krusher for the sig

      • I can't bring myself to enjoy Duke being beaten by WVU, simply because Bob Huggins is a giant scumbag.

          • Well, a lot of people said that Duke's lack of rebounding and their reliance on the three point shot will kill them...and it did.

                    I HATE when people say things like this. The refs are paid professionals. Their jobs are dependent on their accuracy. Could it possibly be that WVU just fouled Duke more often than Duke fouled WVU? Refs have ZERO vested interest in who wins these games. There is NO conspiracy here. Stop trying to make it seem like there is.

                      You're either a Duke fan or obviously you've never watched a Duke game.

                          EVERY second of it. WVU fouled Duke more. Plain and simple.

                            I'm no Duke fan. In fact, I couldn't be more indifferent about the game. But yes, I did watch the game.

                              Wisconsin is the most sound team in the tournament right now on both ends of the floor. K-State may be athletic but they don't play the defense, they don't pass as well, they don't shoot as well, and they don't execute as well as Wisconsin.

                              Being athletic doesn't mean a whole helluva lot if you're playing a team that can execute like Wisconsin can.

                                Not to mention I don't think anyone would say WVU is more athletic than Arizona. Or San Diego more athletic than UCONN. Athleticism doesn't add up to a whole lot in college basketball. I put a lot more emphasis on team play, and consistency.
