Duke is in the same but opposite spot...no inside game. It will be hard for them to rely just shooting 3s come dance time. The blueprint for beating UNC and Duke is there for opposing coaches.
As a Duke fan, that is the only real gripe I have had with Coach K. He never really goes after top tier big men in recruiting, and if he gets ones that are capable he uses them solely for rebounding and def. I dont know if any of you remember Duke games back when we had Brand, and a few years later, Boozer. Games just seemed a lot, for a lack of a better word, easier, for the team to win games. And its not like those teams were devoid of 3 point shooters, but you MUST have a big man that can score in order to make any noise in the tourney. The chances of a team like Duke staying hot for 7 straight games in the NCAA tourney against the best teams in the country are incredibly slim. Not like it hasn't happened, when shots are dropping, all is good, but when they don't, all of a sudden you are beating a 16 or 15 seed by 7 points in a game you should be winning by 40.
