    It will be either Alvarado or Devoe that picks up early fouls, possibly both.

    Kenpom's model has 22. The extra half point is for the dorks with the cheer sheets.

    Duke may have Tre Jones, but GTSwarm has @Peacone36 at Cameron covering the game. The line is down to Duke -22.

    Line could be 30, and I’d still watch.

    That has been all over the local news in RTP. last time we played them up here was the game coach K returned after missing some games. I am going to the game today and was at the last one up here. They had over 50 points by halftime and scored over 100 for the game. I am going just to see Zion play in person. I don't have any hope for a win.

    Best thing Pastner could do to keep this game close is to let his guys do their thing and enjoy the environment. If they're constantly getting hassled by Coach it could get ugly

    The biggest thing to keep it close is don’t turn the ball over. TO’s will directly correlate to the margin of victory. Get back, play good zone D and pray they can’t shoot

    I actually will be disappointed if CJP isn’t animated

    Will I hope you have hope for a win, but the realist inside you say don't expect it to happen.

    Well obviously they're going to turn the ball over a ton. It's what this young team does a lot. I just want to see a good game whether we win or lose. I've seen enough 30 point leads this year

    1) Limit turnovers, esp live ball TOs
    2) Block out and own the Def boards
    3) Make open shots

    Sounds easy, but first two have been issues for us all year

    Too late for keeping the interior out of foul trouble. Both bigs with three.
    Pastner really into it screaming at Cole. Standing, pacing, coaching.
    Impressive switching up zones!

    Great first half. CPast deserves credit for that. Unfortunately we were basically walking a tight rope juggling chainsaws.

    Not overly impressed with the Duke3, if I'm being honest.

    Alvarado for 4 years >>> Jones 1 year rental

    First half was most encouraging half of the season. Not because we were winning at halftime, but because it wasn't a fluke AND we had some things to clean up.

    Ultimately we ran out of gas and big man fouls. We were hurt more by Banks playing tentative than when he got his fifth. He just seemed out of rhythm even on offense in the 2nd half. AD missed a few hooks and runners that we needed to stay in the game.

    Combine that with some silly turnovers and we were done.

    Devoe was aggressive in the first half. As the intensity increased in the 2nd half, he couldn't find his way to the basket as much.

    Cole had a sneaky good game doing the little things.

    Only complaint... Sjolund has not missed a shot in his playing career vs. Duke... what is Pastner thinking keeping him on the pine!?!? ;)
