I'm just keeping the seat warm until he shows up tonight.

And it's not pessimism anyhow... I don't give a damn whether Duke wiins or loses, I've just seen the script in football and basketball a million times when the underdog gets out to a big lead early and then gets reeled in by the better team. Tonight is one of the exceptions, and I'm wrong bigtime.

C-A-N-E-S....CANES! 

Miami is playing well and lighting it up from three, but Duke has been struggling big time on offense to help Miami build the big lead. Let's hope they can keep it up. Remember, Miami beat Duke last year at Cameron.

Select Duke statistics at halftime - Amile Jefferson and Mason Plumlee are tearing it up with 5 and 4 points respectively. They are 8-36 in the FG department for a whopping 22.2%, 2-11 from 3-point land and have made 1 free throw in 4 tries. 

Miami, on the other hand, is shooting 58.6% and Durand Scott has nearly outshot the entire Duke squad, including the bench.

What top-15 teams did they roll?  Kentucky, who they beat by 7 and just lost to Alabama (for their 6th loss)?  Lousville by 5 who just lost by 9 to Villanova?  OSU by 5?  They did roll Minnesota.

Point is, their UK win doesn't look good anymore, and Louisville is looking like a paper tiger, and those were both close wins.  They pulled out OSU after trailing the whole game, and yeah, Minnesota.

I'm not saying they're not good or anything, but to say they rolled a bunch of top-15 teams isn't stretching the truth.

I agree with you, but that group isn't as good as it looked before, since both Lousville and Kentucky, the latter especially, are worse than originally thought.  That, and the fact that this game is Duke's second away game all year (NC State was the first).

Leading by 30 points with 18 minutes left. This means: If Michigan beats Purdue and Illinois soundly this week, Michigan WILL BE #1.

They only have the one game this weekend. With a big win on Sunday on the road, that might help mitigate their better win. Also, M was 56 points ahead of them in the most recent AP poll, and had four more first place votes.

The Coaches Poll will probably belong to Kansas, though. They have a twenty point and seven first place vote advantage as of Monday.
