    Harsh, yes.
    But this collection of accomplished players just doesn't pass the elite eye test.

    We have time to get better; hopefully.

    I’m as surprised as anyone that we went zone, it seemed effective for a bit but Pitt adjusted and now is getting good shots. On the other end we can’t attack it, can’t shoot and can’t make interior passes without turning it over.

    Johnson is looking like he’s back to where he was before the injury, has made some nice plays but not a go-to guy. Moore has shot pretty well. We need Hurt to assert himself and for the defense to generate some turnovers to have a shot at this. And I think we need to go back to M2M with the full court press.

    I want to be constructive and optimistic. This still looks like a November team because of Covid, but fortunately we have two months left until the beginning of the tournament on March 18.

    Duke was 5-18 from the 3, may want to stop settling for bad 3s and try to drive to the rim and draw fouls and on the defensive end, quit fouling Pitt.

    Need to somehow cool off Champagnie next half.

    Pretty even game other than fouling pitt like crazy and them being 12-17 from the line.

    Still think this one will come down to the final 4-5 possessions.
    I don't share that optimism...think we barely get closer than 10 the rest of the way.

    Please quit shooting 3s!

    Drive to the rim and try to draw contact and get to the line!

    Is Goldwire hurt or sick? Because it certainly doesn’t seem like he has played as much as normal.

    To me they just look a little bit lost out there. It's kind of sad. Pitt is decent but they are not world beaters.

    He had two early fouls. Plus, playing a zone negates a big reason to play him (defense.)

    So much work to be done on defense. For example, learn to take away the baseline drive, something Pitt has done well. And when an opponent has production like Champagnie had in the first half you have to know where he is and cheat toward him.

    Refs calling a lot of ticky tacky fouls against us on the inside.

    Great intensity in the second half;
    Cut Pitt's lead in half with 13 minutes remaining.

    Having Johnson on the court makes a huge difference.

    Great to see Johnson having a good game. We need him.

    This game is winnable. But I’m afraid we just don’t have a closer on this team.

    Champagnie is killing us. There is still time, but we need to make a move and get this to a 1 possession game, bring some pressure.

    We need a stop and some momentum shots.

    Winnable but not if we keep letting Champaignie shoot. We should force the rest of the team to beat us and try to shut him down.

    That Roach wide open 3 is the momentum shot we never make this year, it is so painful!

    This team may not be as talented as we’ve grown accustomed to. But they’re still a Duke team. They still fight. HARD.
