    I think we'll cover the spread. First half might be clost but look for us to wear them out in the 2nd half. GT has talent, but they're not a road team.

    We have to bring our A game. GT always plays us rough and tough. They have several big bodies that are likely to crank it up a notch.

    We can win big if we're on our game.

    Actually - GT is better on the road in ACC play: 1-4 at home, 3-3 away.

    I hope we see the same energy from our guys as last game - for the team's confidence sake, we need a BIG win.

    That's a surprise...last year I thought they were a terrible road team so perhaps that colored my perceptions. Maybe this year is still a function of who they've played on the road. Either way, this should be Duke's game if they play like Duke.

    Tech won't be easy, but tonight's pretty much the last chance to start building a head of steam heading into UNC2 and the ACCT. Can't put too much stock in the SJU game. At State and at UVa I fear serious difficulties if we're still sluggish. Now's the time to start stepping on teams from the outset. That hasn't been this team's M.O. so far, but it's never too late to start.

    We need a solid game tonight to start getting some momentum and a good conference win would go along way for the confidence of this young team

    Duke connection...

    This maybe old news on the board but I wasn't sure. Anyways, it turns out Georgia Tech's steely point guard, Matt Causey is the brother of former Duke walk-on Mark Causey http://www.heraldsun.com/sports/18-928274.cfm?.

    They have been the victim of 4 close home losses - by 1 to UNC, by 2 to Maryland, by 1 to Miami, and by 2 to FSU. They're actually +5 in points scored at home. On the road, they're -9, despite the 3-3 record. So they've played roughly even at home and on the road (maybe slightly better at home), although at home has probably been against better competition on the whole.
    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

    Quite simply, for this game to be deemed as legit, I think we have to win by at least 20. 25 would be better. Just my feeling.

    I agree. He doesn't fit in with our "small and fast" team, but he gives us a different and valuable look when we need to rest our smaller guys, or when we need some post presence down low. As a matter of fact, I am more interested in seeing how he performs tonight as opposed to anyone else.

    ya me too... he had a great game against st. johns, so it would be great for us if we can keep him going for the rest of the season and into the acct and ncaat!

    That's IT, I've head enough of Len Elmore's biased BS. "It was just....it was just a push-off, nothing more, he was playing the ball!" That's regarding the blowing up of Kyle just now.

    Time for 'mute' and some music. Maybe Benny Benassi.

    Len Elmore is killing me with his call on the clearout. The guy committed two intentional fouls on one play, yet Elmore downplays it. Ugh.

    And now, to top it off, he's not really even giving Henderson any props for two great dunks in a row. Total jerk.

    G's wrist seems ok.
    The only thing worse than getting older is the alternative.

    No three-pointers yet. Need to get that one out of the way so we can keep our ridiculously long streak going.

    Okay, I spoke a little too soon. First possession after I post, we nail one.

    Thank you, Kyle.
