Hey, there's a game tonight!

Thanks for starting a thread! There doesn't seem to be much interest in this game on the board, but having any Duke bball game to watch on a Friday night helps get me through a work day/week, exhibition or not! This one will be streaming on the watchESPN app, and mine worked well for the last game. I want to see this team continue to get better and more cohesive, even while Jayson and Harry are out. Some things I'll be noting tonight as I watch:

-How does Grayson best fit on this team? It seems it'll be quite a different role from last year, and Grayson needs to find his niche
-Frank Jackson at point guard... defense to stop other PG's penetration? court vision? passing to the low post effectively?
-Luke K the scoring machine: continue to be in attack mode, but under control... with slowish feet on defense, would like to see Luke play off his man a little to prevent penetration (although I know Coach doesn't love this approach)
-continued low post prowess of Marques B. I was very impressed last game and looking to see Marques continue to dominate on the block
-Amile, like Grayson, still needs to find his basketball role on this team. We know he's a team leader, but what's his role in the offense, and how will he best fit?
-More Javin D! Loved the energy he brought last time and looking for that spark off the bench again tonight!
-last but not least, I want to see Jack (the kangaroo) White get a dunk. Just because.

Enjoy the game!

Looking forward to tonight. Sounds like Augusta has some good guards who can shoot. Can Duke shut those guys down, while not blowing other assignments for easy scores? That is what I'll be looking for. The Chase/Javin battle for minutes will also be interesting.

Just a heads up. I haven't watched it yet, but GoDuke has the first episode of Coach K's half-hour TV show available to view. I imagine the first episode will be a bit of a season preview.

You are correct -- streaming only. Available on ESPN3/Watchespn.

So it can be on TV, but you'll need to use ChromeCast or something similar!

Does this mean there won't be a WatchESPN replay of the game afterwards?

I'm not sure how much we'll learn watching Marques feast on much smaller players again. I'm waiting to see how he does against someone his own size (which won't happen against Augustana).

There was a replay of the Virginia State game, and I would imagine there will be one of this game as well.

There most certainly will be a replay. WatchESPN, or ESPN3, is a very, very solid platform. Nearly anything available to watch live is available on replay.

ESPN really worked a lot of kinks of their streaming services. If only they could fix Stephen A Smith...

I keep saying this -- Frank Jackson is no more a point guard on this team than Grayson Allen, Matt Jones or Luke Kennard. In fact, when it comes to setting up teammates and protecting the ball, Jones and Allen rate well ahead of Jackson at the moment. I do think he might be the best on-the-ball defender if the four guards (although Matt is clearly the best defender overall).

Felony or not, these dongles are pretty neat. They turn a "dumb" TV into a "smart" TV for about $39. If we are so smart on this board, why didn't we dream up such a thing? And to think I started out to be a electrical engineer at Stanford. How much money did I miss out on? So I was really not smart. But, had I gone down that path, I might never have been interested in Duke basketball, and look at all I would have missed!!

Agreed, Oly. From the little we've seen of Frank so far, his passing and timing at PG hasn't been very good. But overall, he's a good player and perhaps our best choice to play on-ball defense on a PG, as you stated. That matches his scouting reports on DraftExpress and also his high school statistics.

BTW, I expect Matt to play the plurality of possessions at PG tonight. If that happens, we can discuss whether that's bad, good, or neutral in the postgame because I'm sure it'll be a hot topic.

Bolden isn't warming up with the team ?!?

Troublemaker

Per radio, Bolden is resting after a physical week of practice. Precautionary. Nothing to worry about.

Coach wants to take a look at some small lineups tonight as well.

Excuse me?

What? This is unprecedented, right? Seems like this will force Chase to really show up tonight.

Hate the jerseys. Still trying to learn new player numbers and can't read the names.

Was Amile just channeling his inner guard?? He brought the ball up the court , waived Luke off, across court pass and then got the ball back for a long jumper. As I typed this he just did it again with a +1. Love this guy!!

I agree...I've got a roster on one tab, so I can figure out who is who. Th jerseys don't look awful in closeup, but I hate that you can't see the player name on the back or Duke on the front in a long shot. The pants are just plain awful. Whatever the design is just listen like a gray smear on my tv.

It sure looked like him. Someone mentioned this on another board too. He was there for last year's parent's weekend, but Miami was in town that weekend too.
