He's a decent roll player for the Mavs.

I actually met him and and Vince when the Mavs were in town to play Charlotte.

Brandan was extremely nice, Vince... not so much.

Ironically, that kid is from NC, Lake Norman to be exact.

Lord have Mercer! DOOK fans tend to forget how much they trolled Heels fans after we lost to DOOK, then to Pitt.

Apparently your confidence in your team this year was amazing Lehigh!

I'm also a Duke fan.

 

I made a thread earlier in the season stating UNC and Duke would finished unranked. I was wrong but overall I saw huge problems on the team and not once did I see them address the issues.

 

Duke has had a great history and they won a championship just 4 or 5 years ago so I wouldn't hit the panic button but two first round exits in three years is disappointing if not embarrassing.

 

This team was horrible today. Hood, Parker and Jefferson looked scared to be playing. The travels were things you wouldn't see in high school games.

 

Also what is the point in bringing in top athletes and then shooting 50 threes a game? I do not understand the approach. I did not think this team would lose in the first round because Parker is a legit talent. When they lost with Austin Rivers I was not surprised because Austin Rivers is a horrible basketball player who ball hogged his entire life to inflate his stock.

 

Things will have to change fast. UNCs violation funk will end in the next couple years. Then Lousiville is coming. Also Pitt had a down year, Notre Dame had an injury and Syracuse collapsed.

 

It's very likely none of that will happen next year and if Duke doesn't do more than win at Cameron they could find themselves missing the tournament if they continue to play so poorly away from home and not play defense.

 

Then again they do have the top rated class coming in next year. Coach K has done enough to earn some patience so I'll take the wounds and wait for next season.

 

This...

 

K is a great recruiter and an excellent coach, but this is the part of his approach to the game that has always where I dislike his style...  Granted on most nights it will work out in Duke's favor...  But when you build your game around the 3 point line, all it takes is one off night to leave you vulnerable...

 

Duke's best teams have been constructed around both dimensions, inside and outside...  That is when Duke is most dangerous... 

 

And they've got an exceptional big man coming in next year...  I expect they'll be quite dangerous again...  Provided they utilize him the way he should be during his year there...

I would hold off talking until after unc plays. I said three days ago I didn't feel good about the Mercer Matchup. I never said duke was great, just better than the heels. Big difference.


Yet UNC will have a better season. Again.

UNC vs Duke since '04; 7-4 advantage UNC



-split meetings

-finished tied 3rd in ACC

-neither won ACC tourney

-Duke knocked out rd 64, UNC wins

Will Jabari return to Duke or go pro after his 2-year Mormon mission?

had to look up who Mercer was

same conference as Florida Gulf Coast. They are in Sweet 16 if they beat Tennessee and would face Texas/Michigan

located right in central of Georgia, historically a Baptist school, the guy Mercer was a Baptist preacher that was born in NC
