    Over-Under on Coach K mentioning that "UVA isn't just a great team, but a great program" in the postgame presser?

    Jay Bilas said it before tip-off and I'm thinking we are witnessing the evolution of a K-ism into the typical verbiage one hears from college basketball analysts.

    Iíd be pretty happy with 2-2 in the next four (@UNC, ND, @VT, @Louisville). I think UVA is leveling off.
    I donít think Virginia played basketball at all. Duke was just unconsciouss tonight from 3. Granted, UVA hit huge shots with someoneís hand in their face, but they played great. The essentially shut down Big Z in the second half.

    After Diakite hit heads with Hunter, did he ever return to the game? He looked pretty woozy. I don't think he returned. Hope he's able to go at UNC Monday night.

    **Now back to your regularly scheduled Duke postgame thread**

    Again, incredibly impressed at the shooting. I would have assumed even wide open and uncontested Duke might've been at best in the 45-50% range, and that makes this a toss up game. Man, I will not forget that shooting exhibition ANYTIME soon. Amazing... out of adjectives.
    Any early reports on Diakite? Jerome looked pretty good tonight, so I'm assuming he'll be fine for Monday.

    He did not return. Fingers crossed for UNC game. We'll need him. We're not that deep to begin with and it's a FAST turnaround after a very physical game.

    The way the team was shooting 3s, Alex's offense wasn't needed and he would have had a hard time on defense. GoDuke!

    Nothing concrete yet. Bennett said Diakite was a little "fuzzy" after he and Hunter knocked heads, but made it clear he hadn't talked to the trainers yet, so it's far from a professional medical opinion.

    I think if it was football, Diakite would miss monday for sure. Basketball? Seems 50/50.

    Agreed. He looked good early. Diakite that is. Had a nice basket around the rim and nailed a 3.

    I kind of want to see Tony put Diakete and Huff in together more instead of Salt. I like the lineup of Guy, Jerome, Hunter, Diakite, and Huff. Salt is limited offensively and Huff is just so damn good to me. I love that kid's game. I love Salt's attitude and will though. No knock to him. I just think a Diakite/Huff front court with Hunter at the stretch 3 would be amazingly tough to match up against.

    Itís sheer hypocrisy for me to call out any posting mistakes right now, but this is too funny not to highlight.

    FWIW...as a Duke fan, I much preferred to see Salt on the floor instead of Huff.

    Understandably everyone will talk about Duke's 3-pt shooting, but I think the 17 fast break points to zero for UVA was also important.

    Wow. That was some game. A wire-to-wire dominant win at UVA?! Hooooweeee. I'll take it. The game never really felt in doubt after the first few minutes. UVA kept putting a charge in and we just kept answering. I just felt so confident in this team all night long.

    Nice to see them hitting threes mostly in rhythm and controlled. Maybe we're reverting to the mean? Maybe?!

    We are just so tough on so many fronts. That Zion block felt like a game sealer. An open three for UVA there puts a bunch of game pressure on Duke. That block seemed to keep things loose. That just felt like a block no one else in college could possibly make. Even my fiance, whose a pretty casual onlooker, was like "Oh my God!"

    81-71 on 63 possessions. That's insane offensive efficiency by both teams against two of the better defenses in the country. I can't remember the last time we scored 1.13 ppp and lost a game. Kudos to Duke for just being better.

    Watching carolina Go To HELL!
    When it comes to our incredible three point shooting today, Iíll say the same thing that I said when we were 3-43: the average is the average because it is the average. LGD GTHc!
    Ozzie, your paradigm of optimism!

    Duke should be number 1 come Monday.
    Duke is #1 in Ken-Pom after the game tonight. I can't remember if we were #1 before the game. GoDuke!

    We were fairly far behind before the game.
