Duke vs Louisville

Battle for Atlantis Final Coach K vs Rick Pitino for only the 2nd time ever, 1st since Laettner's shot against UK in 92. The speed of the Cards backcourt scares me, I dont know how Duke will matchup against them. But the game against VCU was somewhat of a prep for Louisville in a lesser extent. The Cards will be without the center Dieng. Advantage Mason Plumlee. Duke will play UK, Louisville, and Ohio St all in the top 10 to start the season, what a schedule.

I think Louisville should

I think Louisville should still be favored.

Louisville blew out Missouri yesterday while Duke had a marathon with VCU yesterday so the Duke offense that relies heavily on jumpers could be hitting a lot of front enders tonight.

Plus three games in as many nights can't be good for Seth Curry's shin splints that have made Seth miss almost all practices.

Louisville has the best ranked defense in the nation and Russ Smith should go havoc on Duke especially if Coach K refuses to play a SF in this game again.

Duke's gonna have to be hot from the perimeter tonight and Mason needs to continue his dominant performance for Duke to eke out a win against what is imo the best team in the nation in Louisville.

To be fair, VCU is a really good team in their own right.

He's a special player. Plays

He's a special player. Plays on both ends, talent is there but lots of room for improvement though like finishing in the lane, handles, better man to man D. Best thing is that Duke will get have him more than 1 year.

You don't understand how good

You don't understand how good Kelly is to this team. He's arguably been our best defender and he is invaluable with his spacing on offense.

Without him we lose to the Lehighs of the world, with him we are legit Final Four contenders.

Does Tyler Thornton know how to get around a screen? I never seen a guy get picked off so easily.

I never understood why Duke's

I never understood why Duke's bigs switch on the ball screen to guard the point guard early in the shot clock. K has been doing it for years and it kills Duke.
