    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.

    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.

    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.

    That Jeffrey guy sure was wrong about winning by 30!

    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

    Well, you ACCN viewers, how did they look?

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

    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.

    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.'

    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.

    Depending on the severity (black and blue to the knee) it can take 6 weeks of recovery time. Hope for the best. At least it comes before the ACC part of the schedule gets going.

    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.

    Good game by Hurt and Baker. Good game by Tre but 5 TOs is too many. Hate to rain on the Joey Buckets party but Vernon Carey is MOM again.

    Disagree on Carey, I would split it between Hurt and Baker with honorable mention to Goldwire for his much needed defense.

    Once you factor in the Cassius injury, I think this was a pretty good performance. Or, put another way, if he hadn't gotten injured and had made the dunk for a 48-37 lead early in the second half, I think Duke would've gone on to win by 20+ and maybe covered the spread. Once he got injured, the rotation obviously became discombobulated. JGold did okay for what he is but you would still rather have Cassius, and Wendell was having a performance that would've gotten him benched for the rest of the half under normal circumstances but he had to be worked back in there.

    My main complain is transition defense. We can't allow these teams to just run it down our throats like that, especially with MSU's vaunted fast break on deck.

    That's why I stayed away. All of that optimism is too saccharin for me.
