    Congrats to the 2010 National Champions!

    I was one of the guys who criticized Lance Thomas and Brian Zoubek earlier in the year. This title wouldn't have been possible without them, especially Zoubek's transformation starting with the first MD game.

    Congrats to all the other DBR posters and fans who I have followed this team with over the past few years.

    Hopefully we get #5 next season with Kyrie, Seth, Kyle, and Nolan.

    I definitely agree that if Kyle and Nolan return, we will have a shot to repeat next year. With the incoming talent, and one more year on our young guys, the possiblity is there for sure.

    Somewhere in the midst of all the Butler fanboy stuff, the espn bloggers made a good point, Duke's timeout on the inbounds pass in the corner with 13.6 seconds left was huge. The guys forced a timeout, which was Butler's last. How much would Stevens have loved to have that back 10 seconds later?

Tonight, Hayward drove to the right side of the lane and took a fadeaway 12-footer over the extended arm of Brian Zoubek. Singletary made his shot; Hayward missed his. Zoubs went down to the other end and took care of business, and this team came full circle, ending up with national title #4 in an excellently played basketball game over a high quality opponent. All I have to say is, GO DUKE!!!!!!!!!!
    That's uncanny...I remember that Singletary shot and how heartbreaking it was for me.

    Great effort from this team tonight. They've been winning games like this all year - the gutty, gritty wins from teams that think they're going to out-tough Duke.

    The way the game was being officiated really played into Butler's hands - they were able to push, grab, hand check and be that "feisty" mid-major team they've been all year. That really interrupted the flow of the Duke offense. But Duke squandered some chances to open the lead up several times and instead let Butler hang around.

    What's great about this year's team is, in previous years, Duke would have probably lost this game. Instead, this team has all sorts of heart and that's what won it for them.

    heart and defense. We tightened up a few times at the offensive end down the stretch but never let up defensively and it carried us.

    When he got to that spot on the floor tonight, I was having serious flashbacks. And they were not friendly.
    Just be you. You is enough. - K, 4/5/10, 0:13.8 to play, 60-59 Duke.

    You're all jealous hypocrites. - Titus on Laettner

    You see those guys? Animals. They're animals. - SIU Coach Chris Lowery, on Duke

    You have to give up something. K was bold and took the chance to win it. One thing I will say, I think not contesting that heave was the right move because ANY chance to call a foul on us there, I think the refs would've taken it.

    I'm sweatier now than when I mowed the grass in this 80+ degree weather. Let people say what they want, this is our team's championship, they fought hard to win it. I have a lot more to say about DBR and how this board has been a great safe haven the past few years,its been pretty important to me. I'll try to post it tomorrow.

    Do you think we'll have another homecoming video like the one we saw for the regional finals?

    I would LOVE to get a glimpse of them returning to campus...

    My heart is still beating. Unbelievable game, I knew it was going to be tough even with every one saying it was going to be a blow out. Congrats to Butler. They are young and will be tough next year. This Duke team performed above expectations all year long and I am so proud of this team and so proud to be a fan of Duke. I have followed Duke for 31 years and I am so happy especially living in Terp Nation. Man I feel great!! GO DUKE!!

    Exciting

    Wow! What a great game! What a great season! What a great senior class, who we will be talking about fondly for years. Congratulations to a fantastic team that was physically and mentally so tough for the last month.

    ...an awesome little fact from an awesome win....
    Soneone in the pre-game thread noted that with 3 offensive rebounds, Zoubs would have the most of any player in any season at Duke. I believe he had 6. Great ending to an amazing story.
    “Those two kids, they’re champions,” Krzyzewski said of his senior leaders. “They’re trying to teach the other kids how to become that, and it’s a long road to become that.”

    Woooooooooooohooooooooooooo!!!!

    Duke Blue Devils 2010 National Champs! Love how that sounds. Loved the big plays by Kyle, Jon, Lance and Z.

    I know this isn't the hater thread but I thought this post by Ken Pom on his blog about one of many e-mails he got in Feb and March on how Duke failed the eye test.

    Ken,
    I spent many years as a sportswriter for [a newspaper] and always found your ratings useful. This season, however, is proof that your instrument needs some tweaking. Any ratings that have a middling Duke team ranked 12 slots higher than Villanova and 15 slots higher than a Georgetown team which disemboweled Duke head to head needs some adjusting. I know your matrix is supposed to make conference affiliation superfluous, but the ACC REALLY stinks this season, and your system doesn’t reflect what any set of eyes immediately tells us.
    —Somebody
    This is exactly why I think this team was so special this year. It wasn't a prototypical Duke offensive team but it embraced its strengths in offensive rebounding and made teams play their game. The defense didn't get in the passing lanes and force lots of TO's but was very effective. Kyle, Jon and Nolan were awesome all year. Lance was the glue guy all year. But Zoubek emerging as an interior PRESENCE starting with the first MD game was the key. Way to go big guy.

    As Lance said in the post game presser, "To leave champions. To have our last game - leaving as national champions. We maxed out our season."

    Yes you did guys. Congratulations all around

    Hmm. It just occurred to me that my nerves would have been so much calmer with some liquor in my system. Wish I had thought of that, but I was glued to my TV, and wouldn't have left to go to the kitchen.

    I'll rectify that tomorrow, for sure.

    I'm STILL wired up (and I've been up almost a full 24 hours now). This feels so good to do it again. Thanks to our guys SO MUCH. It was a great year win or lose but winning just makes it so much sweeter. Capt. had to break out some fine champagne for this event..........

    I think my heart rate is finally slowing

    so I am going to try to get some shut eye. Work tomorrow. Hope the mods can post some video tomorrow of the Cameron celebration for the team. Congrats to the Duke Blue Devils and their fans.
