    Sounds like Raycom is the way to go.

    Rough middle of the game but glad they got out of that funk

    Zion just ok after the layoff. Oh well, he’ll probably improve given time.

    That was insanely fun, then very frustrating, then fun again. Survive and advance. Go to Hell Carolina.

    "I come ready to kill." - Zion

    ...and kill he did. Spectacular.

    I don't think RJ was supposed to take that 3 pointer. Coach K had a chat with him before he started shaking hands. I think K wanted Zion to walk off the court to an ovation.

    Been a Duke fan since the Spanarkel/Banks teams. I get cynical about college sports sometimes. But damn, that was one of the most impressive performances I've ever seen. Of course I would've enjoyed it a lot more if I wasn't worried about Williamson getting injured every second of the game.

    We all know Zion is incredible. But let’s talk about some of the other takeaways:

    -JG is a key part of this team, there’s no more argument on that. He influences a game purely on D. His matchup against Buddy turned the game as much as anything else.

    -Don’t overreact to Cam’s struggles. He’s going to have to adjust more than anyone to Zion returning and his role changing again. But regardless, he competes on D even when he struggles on O, a quality that not every player has.

    -I love Javin on D and on the boards, but we’re gonna miss Marques on offense. There were a few passes that resulted in turnovers to Javin that are buckets for Marques.

    -Besides Zion being Zion we shouldn’t overreact to heavily to anything from this game. Syracuse is a unique test that is always going too make an opposition look awkward. There’s a reason they always seem to make it farther in the tourney than they should. The turnover problems tonight were just as much a function of them as us.

    that matches what I'd heard.

    Thank God for Zion. This was a hard fought game and we buckled down in the second half. Tre’s late three and clutch shooting at the line turned it for us. Hope we have a lot left in the tank for tomorrow.

    Our outside shooting is still woeful. But Zion cures a world of ills.

    Dalin Cook just said he wasn't worried about the trip...

    Must be nice.

    I love that. I have a lot of respect for him and the coaching staff for being extremely careful.

    Dominating in one’s first game back from injury will no longer be called pulling a “Ryan Kelly.”

    What more is there to say about Zion? That first half was amazing

    Way too many sloppy turnovers and poor transition D. We will need to do much better in both areas tomorrow. Also need good Cam tomorrow night.

    Great minutes from JGold locking down Boeheim and hitting some huge shots

    Other than turnovers, great game from RJ. Two of his 3 fouls were horrible calls (first one the offensive player held him off and someone though Kenny Williams was guarding him on that charge) but he played through it well.

    A bit too many minutes from Zion, RJ and Tre with a short turnaround so will see how they respond tomorrow.

    Survive and advance

    I understood your point but I also somewhat agree with him that for some reason pushes in the back, elbows to the face, and other super hard fouls are not thought about twice but for some reason an attempted trip is. I never got that. But yes obviously Grayson did not get that treatment.
