dook versus UConn...who ya got?

How will dook handle Dyson, Walker and Robinson? How will Miles Plumlee and Zoubek do against UConn's frontcourt? UConn doesn't have a height advantage in the frontcourt but Edwards and Oriaki have been blocking shots and UConn usually does good at shotblocking as a team.

UConn hasn't necessarily blown out their opponents, except LSU which was their last game. Dook looked iffy for much of the ASU game. Should be an interesting game.

I'm taking UConn by 5. 79-74.

Stanley Robinson is the deciding factor. If he can control Singler then I got UCONN by 7.

if duke's an unathletic team, uconn has to be an unintelligent team. singler and plumlee out of the game and they fail to capitalize and seem to be turning the ball over, forcing bad shots and committing dumb fouls

Gotta hand it to dook. Despite being a less athletic team being forced to play a tough, physical game...they are laying it to UConn. UConn are missing some open looks, but dook is playing pretty good defensively.

If dook plays like this heading into ACC play, they have got to be a pretty big favorite to win the ACC outright. The way UNC is playing they could fall to 3rd or 4th unless Roy can get them going.

Pretty sloppy game for both teams. With that said, Uconn is getting out classed.

I think Nolan Smith and Dawkins will be so much better later in the season, Duke could be a frightening team when that happens and when Mason Plumlee is back. Also Singler is playing bad and this team is still beating good teams by double digit margins.

Coach K can never be underestimated

Yeah good win but still a long way to go. We have to shoot better but I was impressed with the defense and rebounding. We were the higher ranked team and better team so we should have won. Don't get me wrong though it was a great win and another NIT championship. Let's go Blue Devils!

The thing that impressed me the most was this team was able to beat 2 quality teams with Singler doing absolutely nothing.

Good win for Duke.

I just hope they learn how to put the hammer down. That's what cost them vs uCON and UK in the elite 8 and Final 4's of years past.

Gotta hand it to the Dookies. They looked very good tonight and I think they should be able to take the ACC this year.

Was gonna bet on them to cover but I forgot, anybody know what the spread was?
