    Well, yeah, there was that ...

    Watching carolina Go To HELL!
    Kyle, with Jon second and honorable mention to Dave, who is developing a shooter's touch! Who would have guessed that?
    Ozzie, your paradigm of optimism!

    So I went with Jon...Kyle was a close second. Kyle played great in the second half but Jon was the glue that held this team together tonight. whenever we needed a boost, Jon was there...when we needed defense jon was there. he never got in foul trouble. he shot consistently, not great, but consistently. I think Jon was good

    Each did a great job, notonly offensively but also completely taking their man out of the match until it was tinme to start the bus.

    Duke bench of Paulus, Lance and McClure all with ACC starter experience is invaluable when holding a lead, not sure this will be as true when Duke has to come from behind.

    Singler and Scheyer have that Dynamic Duo thing going this season, but KS is the clear choice in this game for me.

    Loved the team defense in general and Gerald's in particular.

    Gerald added eight defensive rebounds and led the team in assists with 5! That's what I call contributin until your offense comes around. Two blocks too ...

    I noted in chat after the game that the choice this time was really tough for me. I can make an argument for just about everyone that played. This really felt like a TEAM win. Everyone contributed, especially on defense, which was as good as I remember seeing in a while. In the end, I went with Kyle, but only because "everyone" wasn't a choice.

    Yeah, I had to quickly hit mute so I could concentrate on the game - at a seemingly critical moment. Vitale is such a jerk.

    When Vitale went on his usual diatribe that some college should take a chance on Robert Montgomery Knight, I was thinking that we would be much better served if ESPN would take a chance and replace Vitale with Robert Montgomery Knight.

    woulda

    i woulda voted for G if he had shot the ball reasonably well, even if it had only been 1-2, but 1-8 is terrible and hurt the team somewhat. His rebounding, weak-side D and passing were all excellent. I went with Kyle cuz of the double-double compared to Scheyer´s mediocre ball-handling. The 9-10 FT from Jon is nice to see, mostly cuz it indicates that he is taking the ball to the D and forcing contact.
    Lots of nice tidbits in the game from several players like the 8rebs in only 11mins from Z and a solid game at PG from Nolan, but it really was a 2-man show.

  11. This vote was a tough decision. I think "everyone" played as a team effort against Purdue. Some shined in the 1st half, where others shined in the 2nd half. So I went with Kyle. He may of had a slow start, but he made up for it with rebounds and then exploded in the 2nd half.


    Go DUKE ! ! ! !

    Team effort but

    I voted for Kyle, but had to think hard between he and Jon. I could nickpick and say what I thought was one of the others weak points in this game but I will not. They both played their hearts out and both mean so much to this team. They both played very good defense and Jon shot the ball very well. That was good to see and watch out if that continues. Go Duke!

    Scheyer held the opponent's leading scorer to a big fat zero for the first 30 minutes of the game. I was concerned that he was having some trouble adjusting to being our first-choice defensive stopper (Jimmy Barron, Manny Harris), but he obviously did not have any such trouble last night.

    McClure ?

    I know McClure is listed as a senior, but does he have another year of eligibility due to a red-shirt year?

    Kyle did an excellent job of making Hummel a non-factor in the game. He also did his usual job of scoring.

    No, this is his senior redshirt year. He was part of the 2004 signing class with DeMarcus.

    Singler/Scheyer symbiosis

    I give MOTM to Singler because I think he physically dominated the game...his driving two handed slam toward the end, to me, represents the difference in his game from last year to this year...stronger, even more swagger, a strong touch of F-you. BUT, Singler/Scheyer are really a lethal combination. Neither can probably do what they do without the little and big things that the other does. They really feed off of each other. The collective feeling they give off is that we may lose a game, but it won't be because they didn't do everything they could for us to win - including dominating the ball handling down the stretch. It's like they're emphatically saying, "Not on my watch!"

    So there.
    That three was HUGE and the announcers even realized it... It showed they could leave NOONE unguarded.

    He comes out of nowhere with the blocks. Just nasty.
