    I think that if Henderson and Scheyer are well, and the other eight guys are just about well enough to play, we can win. If those two guys know we are depending upon them, they will play heart and soul for us. If we can also get help from Singler and Paulus, WV goes off with their tail between their legs.
    Go Duke!

    Depending on overall health, seems we need to get out and run like hell. WV wants a half court game, we need a fast paced tempo.

    As Jumbo stated in his thorough analysis I would love to see Singler get things going in the post. He's got a great ability in sealing his defender in the post to get a good angle to score.

    Of note, WVU was 12th in the Big East in 3pt % defense. Would love to see Paulus and Scheyer take full advantage of this.

    as in every good win we have had this year

    1. spread the court
    - to do so, you have to have players in who can do that effectively
    - so, 4 guards and singler, lance and mcclure to spell him (or maybe king at times as the 4)
    - drive to pass: teams have learned that we are deciding before we drive to get to the rack when we have missed a few. drive to a spot from which you are a threat for 2 or 3 passes and make the defense commit
    - obviously, we have to shoot better, but more patience and better shots from better passing should help with that significantly

    2. don't clog the middle
    - i love the potential of zoubek, but now is not the time for potential
    - if a player can't handle the ball away from the hoop, if he can't cut and pass, he is detracting from this teams best asset, maybe that will change next year, but for now, we are at our best when the lanes are open because it allows us to drive and kick

    3. i am aware that 1 and 2 are the same thing, just stated slightly differently. its just that important in my opinion.

    4. mix up the d
    - just for fun and to mess with them, teams seem to just freak out when we play a 2-3. i think we play it well because we have smart players and 2 stud athletes in hendo and dmark who can make up for some mistakes of others in a zone.
    - when a team isn't turning it over, there is no reason to think they will just start to for no reason. play smart instead of risky when risky isn't working at all

    5. please win, i cant stand the wait until next october

    I was just on espn.com and saw that WVU is favored in the game. I know that doesn't mean anything, but it shows 51% to 49% in favor of Huggy's crew. I really hope we can step up and spank those guys today.

    i really think the monkey of josh mcbob is off this team's back. that being said, i think if they go out there and play the Duke game and be aggressive, we can get it done...

    I'm not entirely sure, but I think it might have been Rob Clough's old handle. That's a vague recollection and it could be wrong.

    Duke is the favorite in Las Vegas - 3.5 to 4.5 points at the various sportsbooks.

    We beat West Virginia by busting out of our shooting slumps in a big way. We hit the 3, we defend the 3, we survive till next week.
