Duke looks scary good (2018-19 version)

Recommended Posts

In between watching election results, I watched a bit of Duke’s 118-84 shellacking of Kentucky last night.    OMG, it looked like they were playing a Division II school.   Very talented players, but very unselfish and moved the ball around spectacularly.    Obviously you can never draw too many conclusions from a game played November 6, and I’m sure Kentucky will improve from here, but Duke looks like a force to be reckoned with.

(vs. Louisville, 2/12)

 

Duke was trailing by 23 points with just over 9 minutes left to play. 

 

They went on a 35-10 run to  win the game by 2 points.

 

This was Duke's biggest comeback in Coach Krzyzewski's tenure (1980 - Present.)

I turned off the game in disgust when the score was 54-34.    I was absolutely shocked to open my morning paper and saw they’d won.

(vs. North Carolina, 2/20)

 

Less than a minute into the game, Zion Williamson's sneaker gave way and exploded (literally), and he subsequently twisted the knee on his other leg trying to keep his balance.

Fortunately for him he has been diagnosed with only a mild right-knee sprain, so he will presumably be able to come back at some point this season.

(3 WEEKS LATER)

 

In his first game back since severely twisting his knee, Williamson went 13-for-13 from the field in a quarterfinal win over Syracuse ........ and since he went 6-for-6 against against North Carolina State in his last game prior to the injury, Williamson in now 19-for-19 in his last 19 shots from the field ........ that is one shy of the ACC record set by Alaa Abdelnaby, who made 20 consecutive shots from the field while playing for Duke during the 1988-89 season.

Spectacular game tonight living up to the hype of the Duke-Carolina rivalry.    This one could have gone either way but Duke eked it out 74-73 behind a 31-point effort from Zion Williamson, including the game-winning basket.    Carolina had the last shot but missed a well-defended jumper and a tip attempt.   Fantastic game, and both teams should be a tough out in the NCAA tournament.

The ACC Final Four was probably made of better teams on average than the NCAA Final Four is going to be. 😮

I'm glad that my beloved Tar Heels showed that they were capable of beating Duke with Zion Williamson on the floor, even though they lost the game.

With Virginia's loss to Florida State combined with Duke's win over North Carolina, a #1 seed could be on the line for Duke in the Blue Devils' championship game against the Seminoles today.

With UNC and Duke showing themselves as equals on Friday night and Kentucky losing to Tennessee yesterday, I think it's still conceivable they could give all three of UVA, Duke, and UNC #1 seeds.

I think UVA and Duke have them pretty much locked, along the Gonzaga, and I'd guess the fourth is a conversation between UNC and, pending today's results, Tennessee and Michigan State.

    • It amazes me that people that were so angry when I suggested that you shouldn't feed your kids hot dogs and sodas are now so worried about ccvid. Heart Disease deaths in this country are 650k a year. Strokes kill 140k a year in the US and Diabetes 85k. And 620k from Diabetes.     The same thing that makes you at risk from dying from covid is the same thing that puts you at risk from dying from Heart Disease, Diabetes and stroke.  Yet I have yet to hear anyone else say they have given up processed food, meats, and exercising and eating more fruits and vegetables more since Covid started.    
    • I'm sure they're stretching out to the point that first start might be 5 or 75 pitches, then 6 or 90, then opened up.
    • There are 2 different discussions here. First of all, I’m good with selling off pieces and going cheaper and younger for now..of course, they did it in a half assed way and other guys should be gone. Secondly, this rebuild started with DD still here.  The Gausman deal was strictly about saving money.  If they cared about the best rebuild possible, you ignore the pennies and get the best players. Also, we saw the deal between the Angels and the Giants and how the Giants essentially bought a good prospect for taking on Cozart’s deal.  That was right after the Bundy deal and was the Os needed a SS at the time.  You then heard Elias basically say that type of deal wouldn’t be signed off on by the owners.  That’s a huge problem to me. The Orioles are spending about 100M less on payroll than they did 3-4 years ago.  They have flexibility to take advantage of teams that could try to dump contracts and attach good young players to it.(see David Price as an example) They can take advantage and sign a FA who maybe has slipped through the cracks.     There are things they are doing that are encouraging but I see no reason to have total faith in them and give them the benefit of the doubt.  Elias will have to be really good for this to work and if he is just above average, the team probably will struggle to truly contend unless things break right for them like they did from 2012-2016.
    • Servideo is in Baltimore today so expect his signing to be imminent. 
    • https://nccueaglepride.com/sports/baseball/roster/shane-davis/6327#:~:text=Tossed 191 strikeouts over 135.0,a 3.68 ERA in 2018. Works 88-90 but with high spin rate and can touch 92-93 on occasion. Reportedly uses a decent curveball and change and shows a slider at times.     
    • 100% impossible to know that at this stage. The fact they hired Elias and Co. and started an Analytics Dept and an International Scouting dept alone means they get it.  It's a PROPER rebuild. Not the half-assed approach we've been treated to at various times over the last 20 years or so.
