UCONN up 10 on Nova at Nova with 5:15 to play. If the lead holds, each of the top 4 teams in the Big East will have fallen victim to an upset loss in the last 4 days.

0-6 from 3 (so far). But with 2 steals?

That winning has always been the magic formula.

Stanley Robinson narrowly missed a dubious triple double with 10pts, 9 rebounds, and 10 turnovers!

For those who lamented the departure of Taylor King, and pointed to his early "success" at Villanova:

First 10 games, 23 of 48 from 3, avg 24.3 mpg.

Last 15 games, 11 of 44 from 3, 19 mpg

I only caught part of this game but the part I did see the announcer was talking about Taylor King and said something to the effect of:

"At Duke Taylor King thought that he couldn't miss a shot or he'd be taken out. Now at Villanova he knows that even if he misses a few shots he can stay in the game if he contributes in other ways... steals, rebounds, etc."

It just seemed to portray Duke and Coach K in a negative light which is rather undeserved. Like Coach K doesn't value rebounding and defense or something?

...that Taylor's playing time at Duke was adversely affected by his being overweight, out-of-shape, lacking in defensive effectiveness,and being one-dimensional.
The comment was definitely a slap at Coach K and begged explanation by a knowledgeable commentator.
An opportunity for balanced reporting missed.

tk would come out when he missed a shot because that was all he ever did was shoot.....he had some sort of revelation at nova that he had to play defense and be effective off the ball to be a good player and stay off the bench

Taylor averaged a FGA every 2.17 minutes and a 3FGA every 2.89 minutes at Duke.
J.J. Redick, on the other hand, averaged a FGA every 2.48 minutes and a 3FGA every 4.2 minutes at Duke.
No hard feelings. I hope TK has a good career at Villanova, but not against us.
Best regards
