    Only able to follow the 2nd half of the game on Game Tracker. Noticed Carey was in for only 22 minutes and Tre turned the ball over a lot in the second half. Kudos to 4 Dukies in double figures. I'll be interested in the status of Stanleys left knee. Hoping for the best there.

    That Jeffrey guy sure was wrong about winning by 30!

    Well, you ACCN viewers, how did they look?

    I'm stuck looking at box scores like it's 1987.

    Way better than a loss. Glad Baker is getting some burn and making the most of it, but despite his best efforts, he’s a work in progress on defense.

    Lucky for him, Duke sorely needs shot makers - especially now that Stanley is hurt.

    Let’s hope Cassius is OK.

    Joey stepping to the plate is a big development, regardless of what forces him to have to be in that situation in the first place.

    I may be less optimistic about Tuesday after this week, but I remain optimistic about this team as a whole.

    Next play.

    Dear kindly Sergeant Swofford
    You gotta understand
    It's just a class was offered
    every student in the land!
    Our students all are flunkies
    Our teachers all are chumps
    Golly Moses, a total garbage dump!

    Gee, Officer Swofford
    We're down on our knees
    'Cause we don't want to take down such a banner as these
    Gee, Officer Swofford
    What are we to do?
    Gee, Officer Swofford
    Swoff you!

    A Jones - Stanley - Baker - Hurt - Carey starting lineup is a championship contender in March, imo. Just when I had that vision, Cassius gets injured. What a bummer. Hopefully it's a short-term thing.

    Nothing's going to be easy this year.

    As long as DUKE is on the chest, we'll get everyone's best shot.

    Next play.

    PS - positive thoughts for Stanley

    They had nowhere to go but up. They did, a little. A weird lineup at the end. The next game could be ugly ... or not.

    Hard to take many positives from this week, but Joey Baker and Matt Hurt are two of them. Even if Cassius comes back and all is well, we need both of these guys to be productive offensively.

    The rest is rough, and if you'd told me that losing to SFA would be our second-worst loss of the week, well...not great, folks. Here's hoping for the best when we figure out what's what tomorrow.

    These past two games I feel like Duke has been turning themselves over, rushing the pace past what they are comfortable with, resulting in turnovers and less than ideal offensive plays. Time and time again, I see Jones get the ball in the backcourt and frantically run forward, trying to push the pace for some reason, which seems to mostly discombobulate the offense, as everybody then gets into the act, hurling ill-conceived, hurried passes off of teammates or out-of-bounds, tossing up hurried shots and so on. I know Duke is a surprisingly "Carolina-like" team this year, but they are not ready to add that piece of the Carolina game to the repertoire yet. Similarly, on defense, people keep going for the exceptional play, over playing for steals, leaving their man for double teams, etc.
    I think the team might be better served by taking a metaphorical deep breathe, realizing who they are right now (not good at super fast basketball) and play a more deliberate pace.

    As to the team? Long road ahead.

    As to ACCN? UGH! The yapperheads are awful.
    Nothing incites bodily violence quicker than a Duke fan turning in your direction and saying 'scoreboard.'

    My primary concern is Tre. Amazed average talent has blown past him, almost at will, two consecutive games. Also amazed by his TOs the last two games, at home, against mediocre talent.

    The big positives were Hurt and Baker!

    K and staff have their work cut out...

    In the radio postgame, Coach K says the injury is a hamstring injury, not a knee injury. He says the fact that it's a muscle injury is "really really good" as compared to the alternatives / worst case fears. There's no timetable yet obviously, but Coach K doesn't expect Cassius to play against MSU

    Hammys can take awhile, hopefully he will be on the quick side. Bakers threes were big obviously, they all need to be stronger with the ball. We will get better, but it may be ugly at times.

    Yes- but depending on severity- those can take a while- but mostly rest. Time for AOC to pick up his game as Duke will need an athletic wing. Nothing will be easy for this Duke team. They are just young and raw at this point- but the glimmers of talent are there.
