Doubt it. Duke just beat a very good Baylor team. One that would have waxed WVU.

I think Baylor is a very good team, I disagree that they would have "waxed" WVU.

Thanks.

I will tell you what...NO FREAKING WAY Duke has a chance to win this game last year, especially when you consider Singler's lack of scoring.

Udoh is a beast btw.

How bad is WVU going to beat duke? By 15+ is my guess.

I think WVU wins the game but it will be close. WVU doesn't blow out anyone. But I think being the tougher team both mentally and physically will make the difference.

While I'm about as anti Duke as one can be I'm glad they won today. If WVU is going to pull off winning a championship knocking of two #1s is a good way to do it.

Baylor is not "very good" Solid, good athletes, but incredibly dumb and not a good shooting/shooting defense team.

Since when is .488 from the floor and .388 from 3 a bad shooting team?

They may be equal here but to think WV holds the edge is homerism, especially mentally.

I think the loss of WVU pg is going to come into play in this battle. WVU doesn't shoot FTs well enough to win this battle, IMO. I think it will come down to that as close as it is going to be.

Should be a great match up.

That is my biggest fear about the game. And I'm not sure what to make of the talk that Truck may play with a broken foot against Duke. I don't know if that would be a net positive or net negative.

This game they shot 27.8% from three. And their zone was not working.

    • That draft was loaded with impact MLB players.  Heck, Aaron Nola went in the 22nd round of that draft (#679 overall).  Everybody missed out on that one.
    • Uhhh okay so reminding a guy he's married to one of the most famous and desirable women on the planet is suppose to make him feel bad? On top of beating their team to go to the World Series? Yep Wank fans are as dumb as they are annoying.
    • Not saying it isn't, but AAA will be the first year we assume he will be using the MLB ball if AAA in 2020 will still be using the same balls. I'm glad Wells continues to beat expectations at every level but being a soft tosser still concerns me and probably always will. Wonder how many innings they give him with the big league club next year in spring training before they option him out to minor league camp?
    • I don't think Preston is giving enough of an adjustment because of weather conditions.  MVP candidate Russell Wilson played worse, against a statistically worse pass defense.
    • I agree. But it's been interesting to me to meet Y fans who found him so annoying that they're glad to be rid of him. They usually cite the fact that he made so many pitching changes and slowed the game down so much it became boring to them.
    • Something similar happened to me and another O's fan visiting from Vegas at the first 2012 playoff game at Yankee Stadium (the one in which Flaherty and Manny hit homers, Adam misplayed Jeter's fly into a RBI-triple, and Ibanez hit the game-tying and -winning homers in the 9th and 12th innings off of Jim Johnson and Matusz after Miguel Gonzalez had pitched his typically Yankee-killer gem). Beer wasn't thrown on us (we were in the bleachers and those fans wd never waste their Bud Light mead)--just the empty blue plastic bottles. We needed a two-officer escort from the water fountain all the way down the ramps. They also mocked my race. The other fan was a young white man and had flown in to bet on the game, and lost. There was a nice Canadian woman behind us who said she was rooting for the Y's, but hated Yankee fans.... I have some some cool photos. Nonetheless, I loved that season and series.
