    Well, this crapola will make it more likely any real good player would say "Adios" to NCAA ball

Duke always knows the deal with their players, and often keeps their injuries private. This is not shot against Mark at all. Just odd.
    It's not really odd at all. Game-time decisions about player injuries are made all the time in pretty much every sport. And this injury happened less than 24 hours ago. He might have seemed fine and then aggravated the injury right before the game leading to the late decision on his availability.

    There are a lot of plausible, routine explanations for why MM didn't play. Yours isn't among them.

    Great to hear this (again) from the horseís mouth and put this to bed. I know Ryan fell off a bit down the stretch, but having a sixth year center who started a lot for us this year is going to be a major luxury next year. I maintain that him and Reeves are a pretty solid center platoon if Kyle leaves, one that could get better if Sean Stewart lives up to his lofty ranking and can play some small ball 5.

    Again, another place where weíll have continuity, which Coach Scheyer has explicitly said he wants. We wonít be starting over from scratch next year, even if weíre building from multiple role/developing players. Itíll certainly be more returning than JUST Roach/Blakes.

    Because people with access to program insiders have said he (Roach) intends to leave after this year.

    Because he thought he could tough it out and then in warmups - it did not feel right? Business decision? Wow

    Probably Duke's decision to hold him out.

    I think all but one of us would agree that the reason almost certainly wasn't the odd one baselessly speculated about in the first place.

    Technically I think all of them will be spending time in the g league next year. This is not a knock but I donít think any of our freshmen are ready to contribute to an NBA rotation right now.

    Perhaps, but playing in the G League with a first round guaranteed contract is a lot different than doing so on a two way deal. Duke has to show this off-season that, between the culture and NIL, that itís better to be a sophomore at Duke than a G-Leaguer. I think we can do it and keep at least one guy with NBA aspirations.

    There is no way this side of %%#^{#%^# that that kid was not just burning his insides out to get in that game and try to make a difference to help out his brothers. Why this even came up, I have no clue!

    We did end up getting to the FF last year with just 3 freshmen, Paulo, Griffin, Keels, we need to have more veterans on the team going forward.

    Probably a change of place at a school that can use a pg. Think Remy Martin for Kansas. Worked well for him.

    Depending where he goes, I suppose, I think Lively gets some run on an NBA roster pretty immediately.

    If winning in college has nothing to do with the players the NBA likes to draft, then maybe we should focus on getting players who can win college instead of players that the NBA wants to draft.

    Youíre totally right. The NBA is calling all the Princeton players as we speak.

    But a few of them will have 3 years of guaranteed money.

    If your goal is to win championships- then Princeton is probably not the model
