    Because of media time-outs, it’s arguably more accurate to say that men play four-minute deciles.

    Vive la difference.

    Inertia? Every one else plays quarters, from middle school to the Olympics. NCAA men's is the only hold-out.

    shrug. I prefer it. 2x the period-end is twice as many rushed crappy possessions (and trust me, I saw god knows enough of that from uconn the past 2 days...), and twice as much complaining about how much time is left on the clock. I also like that teams that can't shoot FTs are further penalized by the 1&1.
    basketball is back, baby!

    And likely why the men will continue with two halves instead of four quarters (at least for a while). The men get nine time out breaks (including the long half) whereas the women have seven. One reason the women’s games almost never take more than two hours barring overtime.

    Duke hoping to rebound--no pun intended--from lackluster effort against App State with game against Troy.

    Duke starting Williams, Balogun, Gordon, Taylor and DeJesus.

    Troy off to 7-3 lead. But at least Duke isn't turning it over.

  7. #447
    Ugly start. 7-5 Troy, after a bunch of awful offensive possessions (and two missed Balogun FTs).

    Another Day-Wilson 3-pointer puts Duke up 15-10 at first media timeout.

  10. #450

    15-10 DWBB after first TV Timeout.

    Two threes for Day Wilson, the second after an oboard. Keeping troy off the boards is gonna be crazy frustrating at this rate.

    Jim, do you know why Lewis is not dressed out to play?

    Troy is being very aggressive on defense, especially under the basket, reaching/grabbing for everything.

    Amaya Finklea first non-usual member of the rotation to come in.

    I do not know anything about Lewis' status. I have asked more than once but haven't gotten any info. I suspect it's nothing good but that's just speculation on my part.

    Duke up 22-14.

    Thanks. 22-16 after one.

    Up 6 end 1. Lee Volker also came in at the of that quarter, suggesting Kara isn't that concerned about losing this one. (No Miela Goodchild yet, speaking of players who have lost the coach's confidence)

    Miela was waiting to get in for about two minutes, but there were no stoppages in play. She’s in to start the second quarter.

    Goodchild pulled after 3 ineffective minutes including a missed layup underneath. Starters back in except for de Jesus.
