Duke gradute here, sorry I'm late to the Duke bashing. Don't want to leave other Duke fans to bear all of the bashing so pile on. I'll admit we deserved to lose that game, the better team won. As Floppin said, this team has overachieved all year. Looked great early on but they never matured into a great team, in fact they regressed. Still don't understand why they didn't continue to go down low with the ball. Glad I have Kentucky winning it all in my bracket. Oh well, proceed with your mocking.

Duke never has and never will play that brand of basketball.

K likes his 3 pointers and sometimes that means they can drop 12 points in 2 minutes, other times it means they lose to Lehigh.

Not true, it's just that his weaker teams are the live and die threepoint teams. 2010's championship team relied on playing inside out and playing great defense to win. Zoubek turning into an offensive rebounding monster helped as well. All of their other great teams had dominant inside games. We just haven't had a truly dominant big man in a while.

I think this team lacked 3 things that "great" Duke teams have had:
1) True point guard like Amaker, Hurley, Jay Williams, Scheyer or Irving. Thornton isn't the answer, haven't seen enough of Cook to really decide. Neither Curry nor Rivers are the answer either.
2) The slashing 6'5 guard/forward. Someone who can drive to the basket. Grant Hill, Gerald Henderson, Nolan Smith. Rivers will probably be that guy but he's not there yet.
3) Defensive specialist. This hurt us most this year. Billy King, Shane Battier, Chris Carrawell and Lance Thomas. Guys who covered the other teams big scorer and for the most part held them in check. We had nobody who could cover McCollum and he gashed us.

Just my humble opinion. Hopefully someone steps up next year.

1) a floor slapping kay hugger
2) Austin Rivers-type, oh wait

Whos hiding? I was here first, admitted we sucked and said there was nothing more to see here. Having you guys bash us is no where near as bad as losing to fuging lehigh. So its whatever. Oh and then i changed my name because basketball season is over.
