    Duke MBB vs. Belmont Pre-game & In-game thread

    Do we get the night game or the day game? I'm trying to get tickets.

    I'm happy to be in DC, and not just because I live here!

    CBS pays a lot of money to decide when they play.

    Belmont!

    I have a friend from high school who is a froward for the Bruins. This is their third consecutive trip to the NCAAs, and their their time as a 15 seed. Previously they've played UCLA and Georgetown.

    They're a really solid team, but much like Duke their offense is very heavily reliant on outside shooting. They have even less of an inside presence than we do. This should be a good game to practice getting the ball inside to big Z.

    Awesome!

    Belmont is in Campbell's conference, where I happened to go to school and still live near. If you guys remember, in 1992, Campbell was the team we drew in the first round. Of course, you guys definitely remember how that tournament ended! I actually coach high school basketball and have coached two of Campbell's head coach's sons so I will see what I can find out more on Belmont. I know they're very good in this conference and they've got a great track record the last few years!

    I don't know a lot about this team, but by the looks of the roster, they are small. They have a stingy half court defense and they love the 3 point shot.

    Roster:
    G Justin Hare 6'2" 195 Sr
    G Andy Wicke 6'2" 195 Jr
    F Matt Dotson 6'8" 220 Jr
    G Henry Harris 6'1" 170 Jr
    G/F Shane Dansby 6'4" 210 Jr
    F Keaton Belcher 6"9" 205 Sr.
    G Jon Rice 6'0" 180 Fr
    F Jon House 6'8" 210 Fr.

    From Last year, we should know not to take any team lightly. Lets hope Kyle and Lance show better with a little rest.

    Isn't this the same team that beat UK early on?

    Wicke and especially Hare are their two stars. Hare is a great player, a deadly, deadly shooter. Good shooting teams always have a puncher's chance, and who knows what happens if they get hot.

    Again, though. Very little inside presence, very susceptible to dribble penetration.

    You're thinking of Gardner-Webb. Same conference (A-Sun), different team.

    Scouting opponent - Belmont

    Some may find it silly but I 'fear' every opponent as I love Duke Bball.

    Heard the team was staying at the Renaissance

    On my way to DC for the dance, looking for a place to stay. Anyone know if it is true that the official hotel was the Renaissance? It is just around the corner from the Verizon Center...hope so. All the way!

    Anybody have any insights into how to get tickets? And no, stand outside the MCI center and buy from a scalper is not the answer I'm looking for.

    I used StubHub. If we aren't the night game, I'm going to have some sort of fit.

    Deadly? Perhaps a bit generous for someone who shoots 43% and 38% from 3- but he is a good free throw shooter at 91%.
