    You should know by now that young teams will lay an egg early in the year. UK will be fine

    Still counts as a win for Duke just like that 3 at the buzzer did for KU.

    Oh yeah, the offense is still a work in progress and will be all season since K will play more players than he usually does. Gonna see a lot of inconsistencies on that end of the court until roles are clearly defined. Luckily, our defense masks our offense!

    Speaking of defense, I saw this stat and was very pleased:

    Duke’s 82.9 adjusted defensive efficiency is the lowest of the Kenpom era. The 2002 team ended with an 86.8 DE.

    No doubt, your all’s defense is really really good. Especially at this stage of the season. Any team that forces 28 turnovers on a top 5 team is legit.

    Because you’re probably not getting anywhere near 28 turnovers in a rematch. Not rocket science.

    This may be the weakest season I’ve seen. Duke is good, just not sure how we will be if Vernon is in foul trouble. I don’t see the love for Carolina either. This may be one of Roy’s worst teams.

    Did you think there would be 28 in the first game?

    14 more possessions, one more bucket.

    Congrats. There are only about 25 midmajors who could win in that scenario.

    Yea Anthony is a total beast, and maybe no one player can stop him i don’t really know, but every player has a bad game every once in a while. IF and a big IF, Anthony is off, I’m not sure unc has enough to beat good teams without Anthony going off.

    But keep in mind I was one of the ones catching flack for saying Anthony was the best pg in the nation before the season started, when others were like how can u pick a kid who hasn’t played a game yet over Cassius Winston, an all American last year. Easy, if Winston was as good as Anthony he’d already be in the league. Don’t get me wrong Winston is a helluva player too, but Anthony is a ridiculous.

    Just for the record Evansville only returned two starters from last year and were projected 8th in their conference preseason. They could very well go on to win the mvc and have a nice Cinderella ncaa run but to say they are/were projected to win their league is just wrong. Also not sure on the started hundreds of games if they only returned 2 starters from last years team but I’m too lazy to verify.

    I do agree with ur overall premise that losing to Evansville will make UK better in the long run than beating them by 20 would, but its also a lot more fun for the non UK fans, than obv if uk woulda have pulled out the W

    Disagree that solely because Cash isn't in the NBA, he is inferior to Anthony. Winston has an uphill battle as an NBA player, because he's only 6' tall and not all that athletic. Cole could shut it down for the season right now, and he'd still be drafted higher just based on his measurables and play against a few scrubs.

    Not saying Anthony isn't a great player by any means. He might win NPOY if he can keep it up, especially against better competition.

    As of right now I’d put Ohio State in top 5, they look legit.

    Very true. I guess a lot depends on what ur team needs from their point guard. If you have scorers elsewhere and need a high iq guy who values the ball and makes others better, cash is probably the best guy to do it in the nation.

    If you need your pg to score 20 plus, and take/make a lot of shots, Anthony is probably the best guy to do it.
