    • I was going to keep this in another thread, but that was before Duke decided to shave points. Only up 4 at the half.
    • Are we sure Alex O’Connell is a good shooter? Is that assumption racial profiling?
    • Georgia States uniforms are really cheap looking

    Racial profiling at this point.

    Tre Jones saving Duke from being the second ranked laughing stock of the year.

    This slayed me. If the margin were about 5 points closer it would’ve enraged me because no, I don’t think he can.

    Speaking of O'Connell and racial profiling, no one can accuse him of having a "high basketball IQ."

    A basketball game is nothing more than two hours of opportunity for Corey Alexander to build himself up

    Like KU, I think Georgia St came in a little overconfident.

    Gotta quit sleeping on those scrappy little fighters.

    Im getting a kick out of my fellow BBN'ers on the KY message boards all excited the last 2 nights when a mid major has a lead on a ranked team.... just praying to say hey look parity. uhhhh nope we bought the biscuit so other teams dont have to.. I'm sure K at some point screamed do you want to be kentucky?!?!?!?!?! and the guys kicked it into gear finally.

    He's not the worst (Dick Vitale) but I definitely am not a fan.

    I know the UNC guys talked about it. They had a text stream where they were discussing it. They weren't ragging on UK either, just discussing how you have to always be ready because even a really good team can go down on any night.

    Baker is pretty much open every single time down the court and he can make shots. Makes Oconnell kind of irrelevant IMO. I think AOC will be riding the pine after all the roles are ironed out.

    I don't know if he used Kentucky as an example or not, but you can rest assure that K did a fair amount of screaming at the players last night.

    I am willing to forget yesterday's game. But O'Connell doesn't seem like he is poised to break out. I think we know what we will get out of him. I honestly don't think that Baker has many friends on the team. I thought that last year as well. There have been so many times when he has been all alone and screaming for the ball and nobody passes it to him. Maybe just in my head.

    I've never noticed that explicitly, but I'm interested now that you bring it up. There's a concerted effort for Tre to create his own shot more, and Moore just...doesn’t really pass, so I'm hoping that's the bulk of it.

    I am not sure about Baker being friendly with everyone, but I have not heard that his teammates don't like him either. One thing they need to do is realize the guy can score and pass him the ball. Which did happen last night.

    O'Connell is what he is. A streaky shooter that will have a good game now and then, but has very little basketball instincts, can't play defense (at all) and looks far too lost for a junior. I think he is the very same player he was when he arrived.

    On Wojo's points; Tre scoring more is clearly a priority and Moore definitely doesn't like to pass too much. I don't think he was intentionally not passing to Baker, I think he wasn't passing to anyone. I do think Wendell will get it and learn how to distribute better though. He is really just beginning to initiate the offense.

    I've read on twitter there were some problems in the Duke locker room. I never brought it up due to hearsay and didn't want to be labeled as someone spreading rumors.

    This was two or three weeks ago. tifwiw.

    Why are you bringing it up now. I have heard no such rumors.

    But it must be true, since it was on Twitter.

    It's easy to just take it or leave it. I only brought it up due the posts above.

    Shit that was last season. I'll try and find one for this season.



    Damnit. Last season again.

    It's on twitter. Just look for it. When I get home from work I'll try and find it for you. Sunday Sales suck balls.

    I watched some of Georgia State tonight when they played Georgetown.

    Was very impressed with their guards. They could give a lot of teams trouble.
    Just fast plus they move the ball well.

    A very athletic team.

    Okay. I follow some Duke folks, but obviously nothing there. My guess is that you could find anything you want on Twitter... how do you know the person has any idea what they are talking about?
