    Grayson. Yay.

    Missed the game. Was Duke's defense good or Virginia Tech's offense bad?

    Loved to see Grayson look so good and relaxed. Javin's breakout game?

    I asked this in the in-game thread: we went to a different defense around 9 minutes or so to go in the second half - what was it? It looked a little like a 1-3-1, although the way VT was spread out we ended up with 3 guys outside the 3-point line on it. Either way, it was effective - it closed down a lot of the gaps VT had been finding.

    Greyson, Carter and Trent!

    All three looked good.

    Carter was a beast. Hubie compared him to Moses Malone. High praise indeed

    Satisfying. Particularly the second half.

    Accidentally nullified my reverse jinx but successfully reversed the nullification just in time. Your welcome!

    2-0 without Bagley this week Grayson found his shot again. The zone was effective. Defensive rebounding! Duke held Virginia Tech to one shot for many possessions.

    Three observations

    1. Duke is better offensively with Bagley. No questions asked.

    2. Duke is better defensively without Bagley. No questions asked.

    3. Grayson is better without Bagley. No questions asked.

    Grayson put together back to back good games finally. Played much better after the opening 8 minutes as we stopped turning the ball over. Trent n Wendall played really good again. Good win!

    I agree with #3. Grayson is better offensively when you take away the Bagley option. Grayson is less deferential, needs to shoot, and shoots well.

    Go Duke! Go Grayson! Go Bagley!

    Not sure if it was mentioned in the chat or in-game thread, but what was up with the pocket of fans in the front 2-3 rows on the (tv) left side? Didnít cheer, didnít jump, just looked like non-students youíd see over Christmas break or something...

    Great team win, and I thought our defense really showed some progress towards the end of the game. VT looked absolutely rattled.

    If Duval can learn to value the ball more and take better shots, we'll stand a much better chance in close games. He made a few bad plays at the very end of the game. A missed step back 3 when Alex was open on the wing... and a TO on a pass during a fast break chance( a made 3 was sandwiched between those plays though). I don't think he sees the big picture regarding game management as well as he needs to.

    That was nice. The defense did look to be improved, with an adjustment to take away the high post. I thought that I saw a matchup once or twice, but couldn't be sure. Good to know that Allen still has the scoring touch. With all of the threes it almost looked like last year. Duval seemed to be improving, so what happened to O'Connell? Starts one game and then sits until garbage time. Did he have a bad practice?
