Duke Basketball this year.

We all know they are talented, but I think I have come to the conclusion that they are a lock to win it all. They are just too good. It's rare watching a team this good. I wish the players in college basketball stayed for 3 years, because we would have witnessed some amazing stuff.

I feel the same Carlsbad . They'll have a strong season ending run and win it . Coach K's experience with that talent ? Almost a done deal IMO .

It’s hard to believe they’ve lost 2 games.

I know they have issues at the FT line and 3pt shooting isn't quite as strong as it has been in the past I think. If they had a JJ Reddick in that mix that team would be an all time great.

if they don't shoot well from 3, they are beatable


Incorrect. They're the worst 3 Point shooting team in ACC

they missed 13 of their 16 attempts against NC State, and won by 16. I don't think it matters

Where was Alex O'Connell yesterday? He only got a few minutes and he hasn't been playing much lately. That dude can hit 3's, but he hasn't played much for a bit.

Kentucky is looking like they can challenge Duke.

And there's the revenge factor with Kentucky after Duke beat the brakes off of them early on 118-84 .

They are the best team but not by much.

Virginia, Gonzaga and Kentucky can all beat them.

If they face UVA again I think it's unlikely the beat a great team 3 times in 1 season. They would have lost last matchup but Duke shot lights out from 3. Don't think that would happen again.

Duke is a slight favorite but they can definitely lose.


Despite UVA's tremendous regular season accomplishments

they've yet to really play well in an NCAAT under Bennett. Perhaps it's just a matter of time and they will break through soon, but i think their style of play hurts them when they get to the tournament.


They are one of the better teams i have watched but

if there's anything I've learned in my years of watching the NCAAT it's that absolutely nobody is a lock. 1999 Duke, 1991 UNLV, and 2015 Kentucky are probably the three best teams of my lifetime and none of them won the tournament.

This Duke team is also extremely young - even by today's standards.

Three in today’s game ? You can lose to almost anyone.

That said this Duke team looks special. Can you imagine this group with some senior PG leadership, an infusion of additional freshman studs and 3 years of chemistry ? Another reminder that they’ve made a mess of men’s college basketball.
