    MBB: Duke vs Clemson, ACCT (Fri ~2130 EDT, ESPN) Pre-Game and In-Game Thread

    Finally, we know who we're playing. But we don't know when. Of course we don't, because of the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle!

    Time for revenge.
    There's no way we can come out flat and unmotivated ... right?

    I'm really hopeful... especially after the unc game, the possibilities of the platoons with the extra energy, and the emergence of Jabari as a real leader. GO DUKE!!!!!

    I was praying that Georgia Tech would win. I think Duke will struggle with Clemson just like they struggled with Maryland last year. Clemson can ugly it up and keep the score down. That won't favor Duke.

    As long as we get Jabari the ball on the low block or the elbow and Hood mixes things up with the drive and the 3, we should win.

    I don't think any non-elite teams have any answer for Jabari at this point. Not sure if the elite ones do either, but hopefully we'll learn that later on.
    We gotta ride him as far as we can go. We should be going to Saturday.

    Curious to see how Quinn comes out in this one.

    Double Bye

    Against Tech in OT on Thursday night, Clemson's starters logged 30, 34, 36, 40, and 43 minutes of game time.

    The double bye is always advantage, but it seems like the advantage is compounded following a late night overtime game. Extra game minutes, extra late getting to bed. I'll take every advantage we can get. I want to win the ACC!

    Ugh, I have a bad feeling about this game. We haven't been good off extended breaks, and we're vulnerable to these scrappy defensive teams, especially ones with extremely quick point guards. I hope Jabari just comes out on fire, that would probably give us the cushion needed to win.

    But Duke has done well in rematch games where they lost the first one. This will again come down to crunch time. Duke will need to be smart and find ways to score inside. Clemson is a good test.

    Semifinals

    What time would our semifinal game be on Saturday? Evening, I hope.

    Semi finals are at 1 and 3:30. If we win, we would play in the 3:30 slot

    I'm hoping for an easy win and a chance to rest the starters. I'm probably asking for too much. Will settle for just a win.

    Good chance we see the platoon system of substitution, at least in the 1st half.

    Jabari needs to be a different player than he was in the 1st game vs Clemson (6 3-pt attempts) and take care of business with inside scoring and rebounding. He will do it and Duke will advance.

    I think he should do well because Clemson is a man-to-man team and his struggles tend to come more against zones, imo. Nice opportunity here for Quinn to continue to build momentum after a good game against UNC.

    I think Duke destroys Clemson personally. Maybe --maybe-- we get out to a slow start because Clemson just played while Duke's previous game was on Saturday, but Duke should eventually roll. The existence of the Maryland example from last season makes it more likely Duke is superfocused here, not less likely.

    I'm agree with you on this one. I see Duke coming out fired up and I look for Jabari to be the leader he was in the Carolina game. I see it close to the 8 minute mark of the first half and Duke pulls away. I agree we'll see the line change in this one. Going to be interesting to see how many minutes MPIII get's in this one. GoDuke!

    I think Clemson creates issues for us with their defense. McDaniels could likely neutralize either Hood or Parker. I would much rather we be playing GTech. The performance of our guards is extremely important in this one. Hopefully we can force some turnovers to get out in transition and not keep it a half court game. We should get the win but it's going to be ugly.

    He cannot guard both of them, have to hope that whichever one is not being guarded by McDaniels has a great game. I think Duke wins this one convincingly.
