Let him get into the flow and see what he can do. The comparison to Matt Jones has been made, he does play a similar role but I think he can provide even more. I know others are pining for Schutt but I don't see him or Reeves being the answer, I would rather get more out of Grandison and Lively. And hopefully with the long break since the Monday game we'll get a better game out of Roach.
    With Whitehead out for however long, the only guards in the rotation right now are Roach, Proctor, and Blakes. Since the nose injury, Blakes has played 5 minutes in each of the past two games. Roach is managing that toe injury still and might for the rest of the season. I think it behooves Scheyer to consider Grandison and Schutt to give Roach and Proctor a breather at the very least. Both Grandison and Schutt provide something the team needs, shooting. I trust Grandison to make better decisions than Schutt. On the other hand, if you think Schutt could be valuable later in February and March, now would be an ideal time to see what he can do. Next man up.

    Vegas has us as 8.5 favorite. As noted upstream, this game is not an automatic win by any means and I think a 3-pt clunker outing results in a tight game/loss.

    Watching WF vs NC State - two teams we struggled against - itís clear that playing extended zone would not help. They pass and shoot too well.

    Dereck and Jeremy in the starting 5 per Twitter. Jeremy was expect3d given Whiteheadís injury. Dereck is a bit surprising, although maybe this is a move to try to build his confidence from Coach a Scheyer. Letís hope he responds.

    Probably Coach Scheyer checking DBR for minutes/lineup recommendations .

    LIVELY!!!

    He looks more comfortable starting than coming off the bench. Very active. No fouls!
    No soup for you!

    I am having to follow via Gamecast. Did I just see correctly that Lively attempted and made a three pointer ?

    What a great start by Duke! Loving Livelyís play so far, too. Strong on D, aggressive on the boards, and hitting some shots.

    Shooting wide open 3s without forcing anything. Good recipe against the zone.

    Well that was an unexpected start to the game. Knocking down 3s left and right.

    Not sure we want Lively taking many threes, but I will gladly take the make.

    Lively for 3 is a secret weapon.

    It was a strength of his in highschool...so I'm definitely on board to see if it translates...because if it does...hooooo boy!

    Giving up a lot of offensive rebounds early.
