No threads on DBR. No 'Next up- Ga Southern' on the front page of DBR.
ESPN basketball says no top 25 games tonight. Duke schedule on ESPN has our next game against Rhode Island.

There's nothing. I feel like I'm in the twilight zone.

Glad they fixed it. I, too, was confused this morning.

The season hasn't even started yet. You're just having a flashback.

Anything at all? Comcast doesn't even offer (I know this has been discussed elsewhere) the U, and I'm certainly unable to go to a sports bar tonight. Guess I'll have to follow gametracker all evening. GO DUKE!!! GTHC, GTH!!!!

If you like tempo-based stats, our Live Stats tracks them. It's like any other live stats but on steroids.

Here is our Enhanced Live Box Score (http://www.scacchoops.com/ViewHDGame.asp?hSchedule=1814) for the game.

McClure with a rebound-dunk. He is my guy! Glad to see him get some points along with his rebounds.

Sloppy, but a lot of intense D from the good guys.

GaSouthern is in foul trouble. Our FT shooting is off to a slow start.

gerald needs to establish himself, Singler looks great again.

Its a louisville site with some chatter noise... low quaility but beats not watching... barely.

With 8 minutes to play in the half, NO he has not.

Kyle's hot.

T on the GaSouthern coach.

This must be a record for most consecutive missed free throws by a Duke team in quite a long time....

Billy Dat

Wow - we can't make free throws. The O hasn't come very far in 24 hours...but the bright side is we're not peaking in November.

I don't have ESPNU, and this definitely beats just watching a stat-tracker.

any good signs we thought we saw from anyo big man but singler I am afraid came tooooo early.

I fall asleep anytime one of our big men touch the ball

Nice little run with a Singler baseline jumper, Scheyer 3 and Nolan dunk...it all started with a pair of FTs by ZOOOB. The big guy turned the tide. Duke up 22 just before half.

Billy Dat

We rolled over the last 5 minutes of the half to go up 27. If Hendo is going to be one of the Big 3 with Scheyer and Singler, he's got to raise his game. He should be driving on these guys every time he touches the ball...I don't see the urgency, the sense that he can bust anyone in front of him.

Nice to have a healthy Dave McClure, forgot how much I loved to see him play.

Haven't seen Plumlee or E-mail once. Looks like McClure, Singler, Zoub and Thomas are admirably handling the inside duties. But that fell apart at the end of last year, so I'd like to see a little more variation.

Does this announcer Beth Mowins sounds like Pam Ward, or is it my imagination?

First half observations...

1.) Terrible first half from the free-throw-line. I'm assuming this is just an abberation and will move on...

2.) Many times on offense, especially the first 5 minutes of the game, we did not make the extra pass quick enough. We're making the extra pass, unlike last night, but brutally slow. I've screamed at my TV at least 4 times "He's open!"

3.) We're killing them with our full-court press.

4.) Zoubek playing much better but still some of the same 'ol.

5.) Officiating has been terrible, but Duke is getting the benefit on a lot of calls.

6.) NONE of the freshmen have played at all in the first half.

7.) Dave McClure should get some votes for man of the match.

8.) Henderson is trying too hard.

I wonder if the freshmen did something to earn Coach K's ire? It's strange that neither Plumlee nor Williams saw the court in the first half.

Plumlee first frosh to check in, 16M mark in 2nd half.

Billy Dat
11-11-2008, 09:33 PM
Folks chatting on the stream are postulating that K benched EWill for his 360 last night...Plumlee just scored his first 2.

Billy Dat
11-11-2008, 09:34 PM
...As I was typing, I missed that EWill is now in the game as is Pocius.

Thomas looks great when he plays with another big. He is by far our best big man right now.

I agree about EWill and has Singler player in the second half?

Rather than any approbation for the frosh, I think it may be because it is the first time any of them have played back to back. Maybe a little in HS, but no where near this level of Comp.

Also, with the quick turnarround, the staff was not able to break down the froshes performance like normal. Letting them watch and rest will be good in the long term.

And until someone in the know says K was Angered about Elliot's dunk, I won't beleive it. It was in heavy rotation on SportsCenter, which I think is good for the program.
