    Kato, I know you're a closet Duke fan, brah....lol

    Cook is doing a lot of things well, dishing out 6 assists per game, scoring in double figures, & averaging 32 min. a night. Very impressed with Plumlee's improvement (scoring & FTs), Kelly is steady & plays better D (blocks) than he gets credit for...Sulaimon looks like he's gonna be a star at some point, & Thornton gives 'em quality minutes. As a fan, like what I see thus far.

    UNC - somebody posted the other day that this stuff runs in cycles. That is true! UNC lost some serious talent at the conclusion of last season so most fans knew there would be some growing pains, etc., this season. Preparation & game experience will serve them well down the road. Still very talented.

    Re: topic - Duke needs to keep taking 'em one game at a time & see what happens.

    Anything's possible. Hell, look at the dookies football team. They manage to win a football game against the Heels every 20 years or so.

    dook will definitely win the first game. We'll see how the young Heels progress before calling the 2nd one.

    LOL.

    Was hoping Cook stayed in Kiwi's doghouse. Thornton is functional, but Cook is clearly the better PG.

    UNC can only hope to improve getting and hitting looks from out yonder as McAdoo will consistently draw the other team's best post defender(s), including double-teams (unless those aforementioned players step it up significantly).

    Oh...and NCSU -- looks like kato was right about them. One basketball is not enough for that crew...especially with the emergence of Warren. When Calvin does not get his touches, he turns into CJ.

    Darn cojo, you can have a rational thought after all or did you cut and paste that.

    If Cook keeps his head on straight, dook will be very, very good. Solidifying the PG position on both ends of the floor for this group makes all the difference.

    For UNC, it does not look like Hubert, Johnson, or James (or combo of the 3) will be enough help for McAdoo in and around the paint. The Heels will get better as the season progresses, but a Sweet 16 appearance is a stretch goal.

    I love my heels but I can easily see Duke sweeping UNC this year from the looks of how Duke has been playing very good basketball...I don't really see UNC having an answer for Duke unless UNC doesn't miss a single shot nor turn the ball over... Unless UNC puts together some great line up that makes since or looks unstoppable, I'm not changing the 2 loses I put on the schedule to Duke

    At this point the two teams arent even on the same level, but theres alot of time between now and the games they will play. If history is any indication, those games will be competitive. Either way I enjoy Duke/UNC games because one of em is gonna lose. Go Pack!!

    I don't think they will. I think they will each get 1 win. UNC will develop into a team by the time Feb comes around.

    From the way things look right now, Duke won't just sweep Orange County Remedial College this year, they'll run them out of the gym both games. There is a real possibility of two or more "early exits" for Roy this year.
