    WBB: Duke 57, Florida St 70

    Duke tries to follow up it's big win over VT with a tough road game at Florida State, now in the polls at #24. FSU suffered a drubbing at the hands of Notre Dame at ND earlier in the week and will be wanting to prove they shouldn't lose that ranking I'm sure. FSU is not like most of the other teams in the ACC - their D is good, but they're mostly an offensive team who plays at a high pace compared to the defensive slow specialists we've faced so far. They shoot very well, don't turn the ball over, but don't rebound misses. They win by shooting really well and playing at a high pace to get more of those shots, rather than grinding you down.

    FSU is led by likely ACC Player of the Year Ta'Niya Latson, who is an absolute stud. She leads the league in points per game and is fairly efficient in doing it, and can also pass the ball well and doesn't turn it over. I imagine she'll be Celeste Taylor's assignment but the rest of FSU shoots really well so if we need help to stop her, those other players can score off her passes. That'll be the challenge here.

    The stat projections have us as very small dogs, but this is a winnable game.
    <devildeac> anyone playing drinking games by now?

    Massey has Duke +2 (47%) and WarrenNolan has Duke -3 (61%). It should be a very close game so hopefully Duke can have a strong second half and close it out.

    FSU is a high scoring team, and a great rebounding team, and they like to play very fast. Latson is the sixth best scorer in the nation, and she does it fairly efficiently (50% from 2, 36% from three). This will be a big test for our defense.

    Helter-skelter game so far. Duke with 6 TO's in 5 minutes and only 2 points, but only trailing 6-2.

    D is good- O is bad - familiar story

    Now 6 in just over 5. That's almost impressive.

    Officials need to call some of the stuff FSU is doing, or things will get out of hand.

    1-10 from the field. Gotta start better than that!

    Edit: Yet somehow Duke is now leading 8-7!

    Refs keep calling fouls on us on their drives and even tho FSU is missing a lot, itís killing us.

    Didnít think the O could get worse but it has. Canít have your two best scorers with 0 points. Shooting 15%

    The team needs to take more 3s. VDJ had an open shot and opted to pass it up and turn it over trying to go inside. Take some 3s guys

    I hate to say it but Brown is a black hole inside. Nothing but missed shots and turnovers.

    13 turnovers, 7 buckets. What an ugly half.

    The team is afraid to take 3s. Itís baffling - FSU is closing out well but de Jesus and others are making it easier by stepping inside the perimeter for no reason allowing FSU to not be too spread out
