    What lanky skill players like Kaminsky ever find success in the NBA?

    Austin Rivers shouldn't even be in the NBA or the Dleague. His last name is the only reason he's went anywhere. The fact Duke took him in is the embarrassment, not their failure to be successful with him.
     
    Parker hasn't shown anything in the NBA but he at least was a solid college player. That team had depth issues. If Parker and the other kid who's with Utah didn't have a big game, no one else on the team could step up.Sulaimon and Cook were not too reliable to pick up the slack that year.
     
    Either way though, Duke has 2 championships in the past 6 years so I don't see how anyone will complain about that. UNC is still living of the Sean May glory.

    There's a reason for that. Physical dominance and aggressively attacking the basket. Better athletes get more free throws.
     
    Winslow is a beast, Cook and Jones are smart guards who know when to slash and Allen has an amazing first step. Then you have Big OKafor who is horrible at free throws and guys try to foul.

    Reminds me of when Duke lost Brand and Maggette. Next year could be tough for Duke but at least they sealed the deal while they had the freshman this time.
     
    If Duke loses Okafor, Jones, and Winslow and Cook and Plumlee are graduating... Allen will have plenty of opportunity to develop lol.

    I really thought Amile should've defended him all game but Amile is dead weight on offense. Really it helped that Okafor got in foul trouble. Kaminsky was much less aggressive anytime Okafor was on the bench. Duke's much faster defense made it tougher for Wisconsin to move the ball around. Jefferson and Allen make for a really fast defense when compared with the slower M Jones and Okafor.
     
    Wisconsin had a 9 point lead and we're careless. They had this game. It is very difficult  to come back from a 9 point deficit in the second half of a game.

    Well, I called it.
     
    Duke has better talent. Jefferson and Allen are better than every player on Wisconsin aside from Frank and maybe Decker. Allen's first step, which I brought up in the NCAA Thread, go back and fact check that if you want, was the difference in this game. Jefferson straight up defended Frank. Frank is good but he struggles against quick long defenders like Amile.
     
    Okafor wasn't special tonight but he made two huge plays late in the game.
     
    Tyus Jones is clutch.
     
    This Duke team just had a ton of character. Down 8 points, Okafor in foul trouble, Winslow in foul trouble, Okafor not producing, Winslow not producing, Cook not producing.
     
    Talent usurps experience. Tyus Jones and Allen took this game over. Frank and Decker were supposed to take this game over, this was their time but Jones and Allen would not be denied.
     
    All the haters will point to Mercer and Lehigh. Well I point to Butler and Wisconsin. Every college in this country would sacrifice their children and 401K to get two championships in a 5-6 year span.
     
    Coach K is the best. GTHC

    Refs won't decide the game but they might give me a heart attack.
     
    Duke needs to calm down and take it out the refs hands. Wisconsin is all threes, second chance points, free throws and Kaminsky. Duke is out there getting layups and dunks. K needs to settle them down, put them in good position and let them just play basketball - they're clearly the better team, hell Jefferson and Allen look better than every player on Wisconsin aside from big Frank in their relief roles.

    The first half showed Duke is physically dominant to this Wisconsin team. Kentucky gets all the hype but Duke is blocking their shots like pros playing joes at the YMCA. Every time Duke had momentum they either were called for a foul or gave up a second chance rebound.
     
    Duke has a solution to win - don't foul, rebound. Wisconsin's only hope is the zebras.

    Excuses? They put Duke's two best players in foul trouble. And call nothing against Wisconsin despite Duke attacking the basket and being better athletes.
     
    Kaminsky can push hack all day and refs just slow clap for him.
     
    'We can't get them to foul us' -Coach K
     
    Oh, they're fouling you coach, we know. Refs just can't blow their whistles is all.

    I thought the second foul on Winslow was perfect defense and the second foul on Okafor was perfect defense and when Winslow attacked the paint it easily could've been a foul on Kaminsky.
     
    Easy to see why these championship games are always close.

    Winslow got a personal foul for playing defense apparently. Ball ain't lying though.

    It's pretty obvious they're not going to call any fouls on Kaminsky tonight.

    Duke's defense is pressuring but Wisconsin is getting second chance points. Guard help rebound and this becomes a 10 point lead.

    I think Duke will win. They have had an easier path thanks to some over achieving teams like MSU, UTAH and then NC State really helped Duke with the upset of Villanova. Duke beat Wisc earlier in the season and Okafor really matched up well with Kaminsky in that game.
     
    Duke has had to have led in 95% of the time they've played this tournament, big similarity to their championship season 5 or so years ago. They've been able to kill clock at the end of every game of the tournament. They've been the most dominant team in the tournament by far.
     
    Justise Winslow is a matchup nightmare. The only other guy I've seen with his skillset is LeBron James. He's nowhere near as good as LeBron, but LeBron is the only guy I've seen with that size, agility, slashing ability and shooting ability. Decker and Co better be flopping all night if they want to stop Winslow.
     
    Duke is just too dominant. Okafor and Winslow draw a lot of attention and Cook and Jones do a great job of attacking the basket when heads are turned and both can finish tough shots at the rim.
     
    Matt Jones is a clutch shooter and Greyson Allen has a deadly first step which, again, works very well when heads are always turning to find Winslow and Okafor.
     
    Then Plumlee and Jefferson give solid relief. Both play good physical defense as pesky bigs. Much like Lance Thomas did for the previous Duke championship team.
     
    I like Kaminsky and Decker but I think Duke's depth is the difference.
