    Last 4 minutes we played 'young' Moore got hurried, bad decisions by several including Trey-but survived and should learn from this.
    need to work on press break and patience.

    A lot of physicality allowed in this one. Glad we won, and never let them within a shot at tying. Great free throw shooting was huge.

    Happy to move on to BC.

    Who won the Super Bowl?

    Any big NBA trades at the deadline?

    Wow, that game took forever but great FT shooting, they fought through a tough game.

    Team is now battled tested and survived the 5 v 8 zone.

    What day is it? That was one long last 2 minutes. Stanley with two huge plays in crunch time and Tre was great at the line. Cuse can shoot and they are a difficult team to play. Nice to see AOC play well. Not sure it will translate but needed his shooting today. Overall solid offensive game- defense was not great. It is good to have Moore back but his turnovers were costly.

    Tre 10 of 10 from the line. Wonder how far we fall in the polls this week?😏

    I didn’t agree with some of the aggressive play late, and I normally hate stallfense, but with all the bad turnovers I thought it would be the right call. That’s why coach K is a hall of famer and I’m not. Break the press to score, not let them keep pressing you. I thought Javin did a tremendous job defending with 4 fouls, and I thought in general Duke did a good job managing the foul trouble. Refs really backed themselves into a super tight whistle, especially on the perimeter, which really benefits the zone team, at least until they had to press. Duke picked a good day to be good at the free throw line. Still need to clean up some things with these turnovers and transition d. Same kind of stuff that hurt us against Pitt. The first half was the kind of mistakes you live with, aggressive turnovers that are dead balls or under the basket. They started getting the sloppy turnovers leading to transition opportunities in the second half, which you can’t afford against better teams.

    Also, I find it ironic that Baker didn’t play in this game after giving up his redshirt in the same building last year.

    spectacular close to the 1st half and very solid 2nd half. Amazing performance on offense.

    Vernon Carey was great.

    Cassius Stanley was very good.

    Tre Jones was just nails near the end.

    Everyone else had their moments..Just wish we'd quit starting so slow, we'd score 100 points a game.

    Refs were, well, typical ACC refs..

    Good win, Vernon MOTM.

    If I'm not mistaken Syracuse scored 24 pts in the last 5 minutes, and we still won. I'll take that

    Ugly ending. Glad to see Wendell back. Glad to see O'Connell play well, but I wonder if part of the PT tonight was because he likes to play in the Dome (and against the #2 school in his recruiting process).

    Since ACC expansion II:
    Duke - winless on Monday. (Syracuse 3-0)
    Syracuse - winless every other day of the week except for the first one. (Duke 8-1)

    ESPN is frantically juggling its 2021 broadcast schedule to put the game in Cameron on Monday night.
