    This one was circled as a likely loss before the season. Closely following the fumes of the game in Cameron, against a well-coached team with some dynamite guards, it will be a big test of this teamís resilience. Hopefully they donít come out flat.

    That said, Lively began his surge with a strong - albeit abbreviated - performance against the Canes in Cameron. Hopefully he can keep his string of success going. If he can, I like our chances, as he really disrupts teams with strong guard play.

    Last game against Miami, Lively played well as did Proctor, Roach Flip and Grandison. Unfortunately so did Whitehead. So Duke will need someone to step up- probably Mitchell. Otherwise this will be a very tough game for Duke-particularly with Wong playing better.

    Not as far as I know, but with only limited practice time, it's hard to see how he would play tomorrow.

    No insider knowledge here, but I feel like if they thought he could possibly play on Monday, he would have been dressed for the UNC game 48 hours earlier in case of an emergency - I can't imagine much could change in the interim. I am hoping he is ready for the UVA game.

    I have been thinking that Whitehead was held for this Miami game.
    1. why come back for the UNC game when a good rotation has been set.
    2. Need another player to pull minutes with the close turnaround.
    3. Whitehead return can be the story, and teammates will be fired up to support him. Need the motivation in a 48 hr turnaround
    4. Dude needs the spotlight. Focus can be on him, not UNC game. Perfect storm is being created, even a Duke cyclone!!

    At the end of the game Whitehead jump in the air to bump Lively in celebration. He is probably close

    If we decide to be a fast break offense with Proctor running the point like Saturday, I think we see Whitehead in a new role, as the three point option on the break, or the slasher to receive the pass from the PG on the break. Jeremey, didn't run the break, but Proctor does. New mindset. Turn the page. Coach S promised the break. Coach Carawell delivered the gameplan. Go Duke. Hope springs eternal. It's 2015 vibes.

    That sounds right to me. If we can steal a win, it wouldíve huge.

    This one tomorrow feels like the more winnable game this week. If we pull this off, I think defense will win it. Theyíre very efficient especially inside the arc, so Lively has a chance to loom large again. On offense, getting second chance points may be key, as well as pounding it inside. While theyíre not a good defensive team, Iím worried about tired legs and being able to shoot well. A good rebounding edge should keep us in the game.

    In postgame interviews after Saturday's game both Scheyer and Roach were asked about the quick turnaround and they both mentioned that they went through a similar experience two weeks ago when they played Miami and then @VT two days later. So they feel prepared. The starters did play a lot of minutes but they're not going to use the schedule as an excuse.

    In addition to the new-found *fast* transition offense. Can't wait

    Would love to see Whitehead slashing more and hoisting threes a bit less

    The line has increased to Duke +4.

    This is going to be one tough game. But with Lively II.0 playing like a man possessed, Duke can win.

    Letís Go Duke!

    part of the reason Duke was able to run the break vs uNC was specific to the way they use their guards to rebound and not get back. I don't know if that's true for Miami. Regardless, Duke is much better on the break than in the half court offense. Although Proctor had one atrocious pass on a break vs Carolina, in general his floor game is much improved and letting him pick who attacks the basket on the break is probably a good idea. Also, Jeremy seems to be much better going all the way to the rim on the break as opposed to the half-court, where the pull up jumper seems to be a much better option for him. Duke hasn't really used the same commitment to the break when Dariq was active as it did vs Chappa Heeya, and Dariq has flubbed a good f.b. option or two, but he may be better going to the rim on the break too, rather than in set offense, where the 3ball is his strength. It's not really news that Duke should want to get out and run, but it hasn't done so all that prolifically this year, until last Saturday. I hope the coaches come up with a plan that allows Duke to get out and run vs. Miami!!!
