Its exactly the type of game Zoubec can thrive in. Lots of misses. He has played a great game.

Yea...he has become a monster the last week..I hope it continues because the Plumlee brothers are regressing a bit.

Also, I could see Scheyer and Smith continue to struggle shooting some as they get more and more minutes...So, it will be important to get the offensive boards and Zoubek is one of the best in the country at that.

No kidding. We were lucky for it to be as close as it was. Duke only shot 29%, but were actually getting alot of good looks. Though we played decent, it shouldn't have been nearly as close as it was. The big 3 really showed their killer instinct, each hitting three's at critical times in the last 3 minutes.

I don't understand Greenberg at times. We had a nice run in the middle of the second half to get the game tied at 47. Then he holds the offense up, and for 3 or 4 straight possessions Delaney just holds the ball until the shot clock is down under 10. I understand his goal in trying to shorten the game, but it takes away all of the momentum we had going for us. Just run the offense!

VT belongs in the tourney IMO but i still think they need to make sure they don't have any bad losses down the stretch.

If they beat MD next Saturday, which honestly I expect them to do, i think that will officially "punch their ticket".

I agree that they belong, but I have a feeling they are gonna have a let down game at BC on Wednesday, which would really suck as that's my birthday. Still, if they hold serve at home I think they should be on the right side of the bubble, finishing at 23-7 (10-6).

Big game for Duke and the ACC as a whole tonight.

UVA is playing their Super Bowl tonight...National TV, primetime(albeit Sunday) and their crowd will be pumped.

UVA's slow down style could bother Duke, as GTOwn and NC State showed earlier this year.

It wouldn't surprise me to see Duke lose tonight..especially since they could be looking ahead to MD and UNC this week.

If they lose, it sets up a game at MD for the regular season championship(assuming both teams win their final games).

Just FYI if the season were to end right now we'd be the #2 seed and play the winner of Georgia Tech/UNC in the Acc Tourney (UNC is tied with two other teams at 4-10 but I think they own the tie breaker).

Yea, we do having beaten NC State twice...We should beat Miami (for win 2000 in program history), and lose to Duke..I'm super excited at the chance to play in the NIT now!! I'm hoping to avoid Maryland until the ACC Final. ;) Man, I feel like Cindy now...

Believe :eek::):scratchchinhmm::rofl::o:eektf:

Too few smiley thingys I think..

How funny is it that Clemson didn't get to play in Chapel Hill this year?

Hadn't thought about that..That's a nice saving grace I guess.

I thought about that the minute they were destroying us earlier in the season.

IIRC, during the 8-20 season, they came to Chapel Hill. But they were still a joke then.

Well, UVA had zero chance without Landesberg...I didn't know he was hurt.

I am just glad Duke got to get a lot of minutes for some of the bench guys and rest some of their regulars more than usual.

    • Correct. He and clement had cup of coffees.
    • To state the obvious, some drafts are better than others, both regarding the amount of talent available and the choices made by the teams.      To illustrate, I had a brief look at the top 30 picks in every draft from 2000-2014.    I stopped after 2014 because many of the players picked in 2015 or later are still in the minors or have only played 1-2 years in the majors, so the data on those years is woefully incomplete.    Even in this synopsis, the data on years from 2010 on are still very much in progress.    But, I think you can determine which drafts were strong and which were weak, in terms of available talent and the wisdom of the choices. 2000 Players over 10 WAR: 4 Players over 0.0 WAR: 6 Players who made the majors: 16 Top 5: Utley 64.4 (15), A. Gonzalez 43.6 (1), Wainwright 40.5 (29), Baldelli 10.2 (6), S. Burnett 5.9 (19)   2001 Players over 10 WAR: 5 Players over 0.0 WAR: 15 Players who made the majors: 19 Top 5: Mauer 55.3 (1), Teixeira 50.6 (5), Prior 16.6 (2), Floyd 15.7 (4), Lowry 10.0 (30)   2002 Players over 10 WAR: 11 Players over 0.0 WAR: 18 Players who made the majors: 24 Top 5: Greinke 71.0 (6), Hamels 59.5 (17), Cain 29.1 (25), Span  28.1 (20), Fielder 23.8 (7)   2003 Players over 10 WAR: 7 Players over 0.0 WAR: 18 Players who made the majors: 22 Top 5: Markakis 34.2 (7), Hill 24.4 (13), Danks 20.2 (9), Billingsley 17.2 (24), Maholm 11.9 (8)   2004 Players over 10 WAR: 6 Players over 0.0 WAR: 22 Players who made the majors: 27 Top 5: Verlander 71.6 (2), Weaver 34.6 (12), Walker 20.0 (11), S. Drew 15.9 (15), Butler 11.9 (14)   2005 Players over 10 WAR: 12 Players over 0.0 WAR: 20 Players who made the majors: 26 Top 5: Braun 46.8 (5), McCutchen 44.8 (11), Tulowitzki 44.5 (7), Zimmerman 38.5 (4), Gordon 35.0 (2)   2006 Players over 10 WAR: 7 Players over 0.0 WAR: 17 Players who made the majors: 23 Top 5: Kershaw 67.9 (7), Scherzer 60.1 (11), Longoria 56.0 (3), Lincecum 19.6 (10), Kennedy 17.6 (21)   2007 Players over 10 WAR: 6 Players over 0.0 WAR: 16 Players who made the majors: 22 Top 5: Price 39.4 (1), Heyward 36.9 (14), Bumbarner 36.8 (10), Porcello 19.8 (27), Wieters 18.2 (5)   2008 Players over 10 WAR: 7 Players over 0.0 WAR: 20 Players who made the majors: 26 Top 5: Posey 41.8 (5), G. Cole 23.8 (28 – not signed), Hosmer 16.7 (3), Lawrie 15.6 (16), J. Castro 12.1 (10)   2009: Players over 10 WAR: 6 Players over 0.0 WAR: 17 Players who made the majors: 22 Top 5: Trout 72.8 (25), Strasburg 33.5 (1), Pollock 19.2 (17), Minor 17.7 (7), Leake 16.9 (8)   2010 Players over 10 WAR:  7 Players over 0.0 WAR: 14 Players who made the majors: 21 Top 5: Sale 45.3 (10), Machado 36.7 (3), Harper 31.8 (1), Yelich 31.8 (23), Grandal 17.2 (12)   2011 Players over 10 WAR: 9 Players over 0.0 WAR: 23 Players who made the majors: 27 Top 5: Rendon 29.1 (6), Lindor 27.6 (8), Springer 25.4 (11), Cole 23.9 (1), S. Gray 18.1 (18)   2012 Players over 10 WAR: 5 Players over 0.0 WAR: 15 Players who made the majors: 21 Top 5: Correa 24.5 (1), C. Seager 15.7 (18), Stroman 14.7 (22), A. Russell 10.7 (11), Gausman 10.0 (4)   2013 Players over 10 WAR: 2 Players over 0.0 WAR: 15 Players who made the majors: 22 Top 5: Bryant 23.9 (2), J. Gray 10.1 (3), T. Anderson 8.7 (17), M.

Turner 14.1 (13), Conforto 12.4 (10), Freeland 10.6 (8)   The 2002, 2005 and 2011 drafts were pretty amazing, both in terms of the number of players chosen in the top 30 who reached the majors and the ones who were/are pretty good.    If I get a chance, I'll add to this post some of the better players who were chosen outside the top 30.      Note that only 20 of 75 players chosen in the top 5 in this 15-year period have actually been among the top 5 of the first 30 chosen players: 7 no. 1's, 4 no. 2's, 3 no. 3's, 3 no. 4's and 3 no. 5's.      We'll see how the class of 2020 pans out.    
    • Here is a list of the top 5 selections for college bats for the last 17 years.  Everyone made it to the majors with 13 having good to great careers.   The O’s should draft a college bat either Torkelson or Martin. 2000 none 2001 Teixeira 2002 none 2003 Weeks 2004 none 2005 Gordon, Clement, Zimmerman, Braun 2006. Longoria 2007 Wieters 2008 Alvarez, Posey 2009 Ackley, Sanchez 2010 none 2011 none 2012 Zunino 2013 Bryant 2014 schwarber 2015 Swanson, Bregman 2016 Senzel, Ray 2017 none    
    • My bad, it was Jeff clement.   Both he and Sanchez did have a cup of coffee in the bigs.
    • I do not want any of those widespread issues brought up by you or discussed in this thread.    Please, no response. 
    • I’m sure they were blinded by all the shinny new objects that Hall was buying them.
