It appears former Duke forward Alex Murphy is transferring to Florida.  I don't know much about him, aside from the fact that he is Erik Murphy's little brother and he has underachieved thus far at Duke.  Any Duke fans think the kid has potential?

Last season (or maybe when he first arrived), he was supposedly one of the best players in practice, starting for the team when they played pre-season in China, and was overall seen as a guy to be a key contributor.

 

Then, he suffered a concussion in practice, took a redshirt, and seemingly lost all confidence. He has the tools to be a nice player, but was never going to see substantial time at Duke with the recruits they have coming in. He could be a solid 10 PPG guy IMO though, in the right situation.

Thanks, man. One thing Florida doesn't have is a ton of depth. There is a noticeable drop in quality when our bench comes on the floor. Getting Walker will help, but I do hope Murphy can contribute.

Those three terrible losses to Villanova, Colorado and Florida really stung but it's good to see the Jayhawks gradually regaining ground. 

 

I wouldn't call losing to Florida at Florida a terrible loss.

Agreed.  I also feel the same goes for Colorado.  They are ranked 20 in the AP, 9 in the RPI and KU lost to them on the road on a buzzer beater.  No they are not a traditional power but this year that is not a terrible loss.

Since Duke's defense is so hit or miss, and mostly miss, they need 3 guys to consistently show up and score. Whether it be Jabari, Hood, Cook, Dawkins, or even Rasheed, they're not going to beat good teams if only 2 guys put up good offensive efforts. 

 

They're still one of the Top 5 most dangerous teams IMO because of the offensive potential and Coach K, but I wouldn't be surprised to see them wind up being a 3 seed or so in the tournament at best, unless some things change on the defensive end.

Jabari Parker and Duke sure did struggle today.

Dude - duke is a football school now, and the PJ sitch is over so they can't spend their time crying about unc anymore. You're only going to see the dookies pop their heads out of their holes when unc loses a game. #fact

If Parker doesn't get his 30; duke is in trouble. The team ND had last night looked more of like a classic K team than the one he put on the floor.

Wake beats UNC in a sloppy game for both teams.   I am not really surprised, as Wake plays well at home.  But it was a weird game as UNC outrebounded Wake 2-1, but shot poorly and turned it over a lot.  Of course, part of the reason they shot poorly and turned it over was that Wake played solid defense and got their hands on a lot of shots.  But any win over the Heels is a good win.
