    Hope I donít end up eating these words, but I think Duke is a bad match up for Miami.

    We are a young team that was fighting hard for rebounds, grabbing lots of loose balls, and not backing down on defense. Iím sure we will regress at times but after tonight these are no longer freshmen - they were wearing their big boy pants.

    Hubert whined about fouls at halftime. Iím eager to hear what he says postgame. They were taking threes instead of attacking, so they didnít get fouled - it is pretty simple.

    That was fun

    I don't know if the game was just that good, my expectations were lowered, or I have reached a new level of zen maturity but that is the most I have genuinely enjoyed a basketball game in a long time. I wasn't yelling at refs, only slightly annoyed at ESPN's pointless split screen, even Jay Bilas didn't bother me tonight. It was just a really really fun basketball game.

    Did he say anything about his team shooting 27 threes (to Dukeís 11)?

    Yes!!!!!

    Great win. I can't wait to watch the replay and see if my initial takes were correct. I thought we played great defense and Jon had a really good gameplan. Lively won the game with his blocks, rebounds, and those two putback jams. I am so happy for Jeremy - he's had some tough games against that lot, but he made winnings plays tonight. Overall, our offense was quite bad, but it was enough.

    There will be time for sober reflection later. But for now, beer me! Cheers you beautiful people!

    Iron man Jeremy Roach played all 40 minutes. To go along with his 20 points and 7 rebounds.

    Apparently tied for longest home, start-of-season, winning streak by an ACC rookie head coach with....Hubert Davis.

    Dereck Lively II uses pepper spray to season his meat.

    Interesting... I don't know if I paid more attention to the in-game commentary, but Bilas seemed to constantly talk about what unc did or didn't do... but only a small percentage of time of what Duke did... good OR bad

    Played mature

    Nest up, Miami. They will be tough and forced a lot of turnovers today.

    Let's go Duke!
    So many things to like. One of the most enjoyable and encouraging aspects is that our young team did NOT play like a young team at the end. They were poised, confident, determined and focused on the game plan. To me, it's a great coming out party for this young team becoming a sound, mature basketball team.
    ďI love it. Coach, when we came here, we had a three-hour meeting about the core values. If you really represent the core values, it means diving on the floor, sacrificing your body for your teammates, no matter how much youíre up by or how much youíre down by, always playing hard.Ē -- Zion

    Lively played 33 minutes. His most previously this year was 23. Hope he gets some good rest for Monday.

    The next two are Notre Dame and Louisville. I'll take the belt now.

    I hope the adrenaline high from this game carries over... especially since it's only a couple of days. Then some rest, and re-focus for UVa

    Pretty sure nearly all Bacotís points were when Lively was on the bench.

    Bilas said during the pre-game that the game would be about one thingÖrebounding. He was right.
