Good win by the dookies...They still have problems with their interior though...That's two games against quality teams and their bigs haven't been impressive. However, dook has a savy veteran team and that will work well for them until they get tuckered out later this season.

I actually thought the bigs played well. Between Plumlee, Zoubek, and Thomas they had 27 rebs and 16 points on 4 of 12 shooting. Yeah they didn't score a lot but they dominated on the boards and that is why Duke won. 15 of the 27 rebs were offensive they actually saved the game for us because we shot 29% from the field.

The point is that you guys are a perimeter oriented team that does not utilize the bigs and the minutes are being gobbled up by three guys...This is the same team as last year minus EW and Henderson, but with Dawkins and MP (who is injured) and Kelly who doesn't play. I stand by my prediction of this team fizzling out because of a very short rotation.

We will have a pretty good 8 man rotation once MP2 gets back which is going to be this week. Kelly is a situational guy right now so depending on the team we are playing is going to determine how many minutes he gets. He could not guard anybody from Uconn that is why he only got a few minutes. I am more excited about this team compared to last years but like I have been saying we still are a work in progress there is no doubt about that. Still a big win versus Uconn though.
