Kelly with 35 and counting...
Great comeback game for Kelly, shooting the lights out and dominating Miami. My question is this: Lets just say Duke wins the ACC Tourney, and they basically haven't lost with him. How in any way are they not the number one overall seed? I know he isn't going to continue to play at this high of a level, but he gives them such a better weapon than Hairston and Jefferson. He's a good defender (They average to give up 60 a game with him and 71 a game without him) and he shoots over 50% from 3. I like Duke's chances this year assuming he stays healthy.
ACC is pretty miserable this year, IMO Gonzaga should be a no1, if Georgetown wins big east they should, 1 big ten team should and then the other one should be up for grabs
Yet you completely ignored my argument. The tournament is supposed to seed the teams based on what players are on the floor, i.e. they are suppose to seed Kentucky as if Nerlens Noel was never there because it doesn't matter how good they were with him. So if Duke doesn't lose with Kelly, and they have him for the tourney, how are they not number one? Then you talk about how bad the ACC is, even though Miami is a top 5 team, Virginia UNC NC State and Maryland are all going to make the tourney and all of those teams save NC State has been playing much better lately, and yet Gonzaga, a WCC team should be number 1? That doesn't even begin to make sense.
Gonzaga has only 2 losses, Big East and Big Ten are toughest conferences. Tournament committee has to weigh the importance of Kelly, not only count games he played.
How exactly is the big east so great? Louisville, Syracuse, and GTown have been super inconsistent this year.
massive depth of quality, Louisville, Syracuse, Georgetown, Marquette, Notre Dame, UConn, Pitt, Cincinnati, Villanova are all pretty good.
So Duke shouldn't be a 1 seed because Notre Dame, Pitt, Nati, Nova, and UConn are marginally better than NC State, Maryland, UNC, and Florida State?
Actually I never said Duke shouldn't be a 1 seed, at the minute they would be my 4th 1st seed along with Gonzaga, GTown and Indiana, don't put words in my mouth and by the way the 3rd, 4th and 5th best team in the big east are better than the 3rd best in the ACC. Big East has 6 ranked (Connecticut might be aswell if not for the ban) and ACC has 2 ranked.

Still counting..........so was that clock....Dukie home cooking
Canes just drained a three with a minute and change to go but the clock kept running as Ruke took the ball out. About 5 seconds were lost. Am i wrong that that should not have happened? Also terrible turnover. And another clock mess up. Well done.
that was a close game. kelly played great. duke should be a top seed. not sure if they should be ranked one. i think gonzaga has been ranked a little high all season. they are not the best team in the nation. just ranked that way.
One of the best 2 or 3 games I have seen this season. K is lucky he brought Kelly back this game because if not for that insane performance we were looking at the Dookies going down again by a steep margin to the Canes.
