    Jones and Baker 6-13 from threes, rest of team 1-15.

    Sounds like one of my intramural teams.

    Scoring from Tre and Vernon and solid rebounding. Defense was fair. Enough to win, but lots of room for self examination and improvement.

    Sloppy, listless and uninspired play by the Blue Devils. Take the win and get better. K has lots of raw material for practices.

    You mean like some people did before the game, thinking the spread was too low?
    If the janitor is not a Tarheel, then why is the water in the toilet Carolina blue?

    Historically, this UNC team is alarmingly unacademic.

    Need to work on attacking the zone.

    Jeebus Murphy deliver me from Corey Alexander gibbering on and on and on. Mt Rushmore, what? Yap yap yap.

    I muted it and pondered sending him one of those bathroom plug extension units that were advertised incessantly all night. Maybe his electric shaver would fall into the trash can and he'd knock himself out cold while trying to retrieve it.

    Good lord, shut up!

    Like many color commentators, he doesn't realize that the broadcast would be far better if he cut back by a third to a half. It's the Jimmy Dykes syndrome.

    Georgia State played hard throughout the game, Duke not so much. GA State was well coached and will beat some good teams this season. Coach K said the team did not play match their hard work in the first half but did so in the second half.

    Tre Jones gave us a glimpse of just how good he can be last night. Jack White gave another workmen like performance, Joey hit two big threes that helped extend the lead when the game was still in doubt. If you go by minutes, Jack was the 5th starter and Joey was the 6th man. I know it's not who starts but who gets the minutes. Well from what I saw, they deserved those minutes. Vernon with a 20-14 was our second best player. I just wish he could go to his right like he does to the left.

    On the not so positive side, Javin with 4 fouls in the first half was as bad as it gets and he added to that with some uninspiring inside play on offense. He only saw 6 minutes. Cassius was due for a bad shooting night and he did not disappoint.(2-12) but he played good defense and rebounded well. Hurt and Alex were a combined 2-10 from the field but Matthew played a good overall game. He's pretty good on help defense for a freshman. Goldwire in 11 minutes had 1 rebound and 1 assist. Moore in 11 minutes had 2 points(1-5), 4 rebounds, and 2 turnovers. I'm hoping Wendell begins to hit some shots because he looks like he could really help the team when he becomes an offensive threat. He has a good handle and appears to be a strong young man.

    Glad we escaped with a win and didn't fall into the same trap that Kentucky did. Duke is in line to be #1 in most polls come Monday but I don't think we are(yet).

    GoDuke!

    Didnít get to watch the game, was forced to go see Ford Vs Ferrari😀. 4 fouls in 6 minutes is impressive- did Javin do that in 6 consecutive minutes?

    note: javin racked up those 4 fouls in 2 first half minutes. he played 4 in the second half foul free.
    oof

    Idk what some of you are down about. Bad matchup against an experienced team. Vernon put up a double double. Many freshmen making freshmen mistakes. I thought it was a good, gritty win.

    Baker earned some confidence, Stanley found another way to contribute (9 boards), Jones took his offense to another level.

    My biggest gripe is the poor free throw %. Getting flashbacks to last year.

    Good win.

    This was an important game because it showed us All American, ACC POY caliber Tre Jones.

    When we played a poor first half, he scored to help us keep a small lead and then keep pace, including 3 treys. In the decisive second half run when we took control of the game, he scored 10 of the next 11 points to break the 40-40 tie and was a one man fast breaking wrecking crew. Down the final 8 minutes, under Kís direction, he took the air out of the ball and used most of the shot clock on each possession. It was a masterly performance, perhaps the best of his Duke career, despite very tough D and pressure being applied to him.

    We had way too many turnovers in the first half and, in K parlance, it felt like we let our offensive struggles impact our defense. Once we tightened up the D and turnovers during the aforementioned second half run, we cruised.

    More positives...Vernon double double, Jack White rebounds, Cassius rebounds, Joey Baker 3s and big minutes.

    More less than positives...Javin fouls and inability to finish around the rim, AOC poor play despite the start, Vernon missing dunks, K needing to continually scream for the team to ďgrab the ballĒ, fairly invisible game by Wendell and Hurt wasnít much better, but he at least needs to be guarded around the 3 point line which creates space.

    Georgia State played hard and well.

    Still no real rotation, minutes are up for grabs every night.

    Joey Baker in at crunch time. 9.5 man rotation.

    Looking like our depth will be a crucial advantage this season.

    Kinda brutal, not Kentucky vs Evansville brutal, but still. Super glad that Tre felt like setting career highs tonight, but also kinda sad that this team needed 40 minutes from Tre in a game like this. It's great that Carey figured out how to use his size and skill to be effective against their interior b/c we needed that too. Everything else was dog poo, except Jack's rebounding. Well, i guess J-Bake had a pretty solid game. Hopefully he continues to figure out how to earn more PT, b/c this team needs a shooter.
    To whoever discovered that it was on YouTube, thanks, that was my first chance to watch the team this year. Bummer it had to be such a blah performance. I was unpleasantly surprised to see that GA State was consistently the team with more energy and a more active defense. Duke won simply b/c our players have a higher overall level of talent, not b/c of effort.
    I guess it's good that the team got the win even on a night where they could have easily taken a loss. Hopefully this will wake the Fr. up to the realities of D1 ball.

    Carey can shoot and make 3's

    I liked this game. G State played us tough and exposed a good many things we need to work on. Tre and Vernon showed they could step up and carry the team for stretches.

    There will be much dissection and discussion of game film/tape/video over the next several days.

    And we won comfortably.
