    We're due for a really good game. I'd like to have it tomorrow.
    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

    We will need it against Virginia. They are a very talented, well coached team. Fortunately, so are we!

    Ah, a sunny Sunday in March, 78 degrees forecast, and Duke is playing for the ACC Championship. Plus the game is at 10 am my time.

    I like tomorrow already, and it's only today.

    Just checked the Chapel Hill weather for tomorrow: 53F and rainy all day with 100% chance of not playing.

    You can never underestimate the value in playing for a Championship, regardless whether it results in a win or loss.

    Our team is still relatively young so experiencing tomorrow will be huge for NCAAT play.

    I wonder if Nike made Throwback jerseys in Royal Blue?

    Yeah, we certainly haven't played like an ACC Champion yet in this tournament, but regardless, tomorrow we're in the Championship Game. Just need to have that one great performance at the right time. What's funny is I'm pretty sure the sportsbooks will have Duke as the favorite tomorrow, especially since we were the favorite pre-tourney. I don't believe we should be favored over UVA myself, but hopefully the books' computers prove to be accurate tomorrow.

    Shouldn't be more than 2-3 points in either direction, regardless.

    Here in NC the forecast for tomorrow is 46 and rain. Also, perfect weather for a Duke championship.

    Gotta bring it tomorrow, for sure.

    Hope a couple of people can hit 3s tomorrow. That may be important against the Pack Line. Today, that was Cook.

    I agree - getting to this game is important. This team has grown already. Another game will help that rhythm. But a win tomorrow gives them a championship. That will be even a bigger step. If you are going to play- you might as well give it your all. This was not a physical game - so they should be good for tomorrow - but the second half will be a war.

    I'm concerned about fatigue for tomorrow 3rd game in 3 days and we basically only played 6 guys today. Perhaps K is/was saving Dawkins and Plumlee for tomorrow?

    Gotta make free throws. They'll kill you in a game like this. 11 misses is too many.

    UVA has been the most consistent team in the ACC this year. I think their experience will be the difference. If the game is close in the last 5 minutes, I think UVA will be able to handle those plays bette than Duke.

    I hope so--I'm concerned about fatigue as well-- but I wouldn't count on it.

    The first time Duke and Virginia have met in the championship game. Terry Holland at the tourney this weekend as a legend ... we're 31 years removed from "here's to never forgetting tonight" ...

    UVa basically played 7 and played a much harder game. Both teams will be tired. This is about which team wants it more.
