    VT is the early surprise. Will learn a lot more after the remaining games in Maui, then Duke next week.

    Watched VT before switching over to GT. They are a lot of fun to watch. Small ball just like ARK but with a lot more movement and structure to their sets. They run a horn set that had MSU switching and making defensive mistakes routinely - no small feat with MSU defenses. Plus they had what we covet - shooters across the board.

    I would love to see us steal some of the structure they use to get an offense initiated and in motion.

    Oh my god. Didn't expect this. Steven F (for Fing) Austin takes down Duke.
    They deserved it too. Outplayed them in Cameron.

    Just wow

    Is this where the "Puke on Duke" party is happening?

    SFA started 3 seniors and two juniors. Their top sub is a senior. Except for Jack White, Duke played freshmen and sophomores. Just saying...

    Imagine that. Older players. Should they fire the great “K”

    I would say the moral of the story is this crop of Duke freshman isn't the same level as last year's crop of Duke freshmen. I will be really floored if they have 3 of the top 10 NBA picks on this team.

    I'll be shocked if this happens and pretty sure the mock drafts support your thesis.

    There's nobody on that team that the NBA would be that excited about.

    I was surprised by the ease SFA guards got penetration and easy baskets. And late, when SFA had four guys with four fouls, Duke could not attack the SFA M2M defense.

    I expect Carey will get some love but I haven't looked at any mocks to know

    SFA guards were thick and quick enough to stay in front. They didn't reach or do stupid stuff so they got away with a lot of physical play - both sides did but SFA was much more aggressive. Most of all they were thick enough to get Duke defenders on their hip and simply take them for a ride into the lane and then make the contested shots. No real strategy just saddle up.

    fun to watch

    I expected freshman Matthew Hurt to be close to junior Frank Kaminsky and that just has not been the case.

    What's the matter, was the housing market in posh Durham neighborhoods not flush enough to attract the top prospects' families, during the last recruiting cycle?

    UNC wishes they could play half the defense LV does. Mack is a really good coach.

    I have no idea whether he would have come, but I really wish we had the money to commit to Mack when Bobinski was running his search.
    On the other side, I think Bobinski hated Tech's culture so he probably didn't sell Mack really well when he had the chance even with their relationship.
