Fuck duke, lose with some class...going for the steal down 30 with 10 seconds left? Lame

/this is probably overreaction but it seems very duke like to me

I wonder if Coach K was harping on them saying they'd better work hard to the last second.  There was a play in the 2nd half where they inbounded the ball after giving up a bucket,and Miami came and stole it, took a shot, missed, got the rebound again.  At that point you could tell Coach K was going Brian kelly on the sideline.

That Duke-UNLV game was the last college basketball game played before the Fab Five hit the scene.

At a press conference before the championship game the next year, when Michigan was set to play Duke, reporters asked the Fab Five what they had been doing a year ago as high school students.

Jalen: "I was home in Detroit, rooting for UNLV."

Ray: "I was home in Texas, rooting for UNLV."

Chris: "I was in my living room, rooting for UNLV."

Jimmy: "I was at my friend's house, rooting for UNLV."

Dang, this title needs to be changed.

#1 Duke goes down by 30

#9 Butler loses at LaSalle

#8 Florida down at the half to a terrible Georgia team

#17 Creighton getting blown out at a middling Drake team

What in the world is going on tonight?

Miami had that lead at halftime, lol. This was a perfect storm of a college bball game. Rarely does a team hang 70 on Duke, so 90 is hilarious (with 80 of those points coming in the paint, lol.)

For all the #1 talk we've got to take care of two things:

  • Win our games vs. Purdue and Illinois
  • Hope Kansas doesn't pass us (17 game win streak they are on?)

I still don't see how an 18-1 Kansas team would pass a 19-1 Mich team if both win out. Both teams have 1 loss to a ranked team, and 2 wins against ranked teams. The only edge Kansas has is that they have 2 road wins over ranked teams.

Michigan having an extra game over Kansas is just too much for them to pass us in the AP poll. At the same time, no way we pass them in the Coaches.

I don't see how it doesn't make sense. I'm not talking about the AP where we would undoubtedly be #1. Polls tend to follow the "step-up" approach. The better question is, when Kansas leads M this week in the Coaches' Poll, beats a ranked team on the road and (hypothetically) a top-25 RPI team in Oklahoma while Michigan beats two unranked teams (again, hypothetically), why in the world would they switch the two around?

Duke students always get mad when they don't get a chance to enjoy the team at their best.

(Note: If you're too young for Elton Brand, this was the Duke student that got pissed because he declared early for the NBA before she could sleep with him.)

Purdue makes me nervous now. I think I'd be less nervous if they were a ranked team but now they make me nervous in a underdog/i-hope-we-arent-sleeping-on-this-game way
