Not a lot to be determined from watching them pound UNCG...They don't seem very athletic, but they have good size.

Minus Nolan and Mason, probably the two best athletes.

I was very impressed, Scheyer picked back up where he left off and Singler is going to be a beast this year. Miles looked a whole lot better, and I thought our freshmen played well. They didn't look sloppy with the ball, only 13 TO's. I can't wait for Nolan and MP2 to get back.

Of course you were...They still are not going to be good at guarding quick teams, and K is going to physically kill Scheyer and Singler - Don't know if either got a break last night.

No one will get to see them exposed until they play someone though. Are they playing a ranked team out of conference this year?

That is why they will have to play zone, I told you that on another thread they have tremendous size at every position so it will be tough guarding quicker teams. I am not a homer like you and think they have no flaws, I understand the game. Yes Scheyer and Singler had to play some minutes but that is because Smith couldn't play and MP2 was also out. They play in the NIT so whoever they face in the Garden, they also have Wisconsin, Gonzaga, and St.Johns, and Georgetown.

So do you believe they are a top 10 team?

I thought dook looked good. I didn't watch the whole game but I did notice them playing a lot of zone. Roy had better start preparing for that now.

I thought they looked a step slow and not too athletic. Again, they have nice size and skill, so they will probably have a decent year. They may be a sweet 16 team, may not be. I know there is a lot of hope that Nolen Smith will be the answer at pg, but he was so ineffective last season that he was moved out by a freshman.

Actually, Elliot took the place of Paulus, not Nolan. He was playing well until that screen at Maryland that took him out with a concussion, and when he came back he wasn't the same. I love how Duke players that are hyped are nothing until they prove themselves, but you're so high on Carolina when in reality only a couple of them have done anything significant.

Yes they are a top ten team no doubt, but do we have issues of course we are thin at the guard position but I was more impressed with Duke's play than UNC's so far. Now I am a Duke fan so it could be biased but I thought they played very well. Freshmen looked good and we only turned the ball over 13 and put up 96 points. Defense looked poor at points of the game but again that is one of the areas to work on. And as far as Nolan goes I think for being a second year player and playing behind Paulus and Scheyer he averaged 9 ppg. 2 assts. and 3 rebs. Those are decent stats for a guy coming off the bench. I know he has worked really hard on his game over the summer so we will see. Like I said I will take him over LD2 all day everyday.

So a team that looked a step slow and not too athletic put up 96 points? Your guys haven't put up that many points this year yet. We shot the same percentage from the 3 point line as the Heels did so you can't use that excuse.
