    Duke will not allow one player to define this team. Duke has players that will get a shot to play more minutes. Some of these young pups may surprise State. If Leslie or Howell get into foul trouble early...Duke will attack them early and often. If Leslie doesn't keep his head straight, Duke will win this one easily.

    Wood will not get his big 3's in this one like the last game. He can't play defense, so Duke has some easy points on him already. I expect Mason, Curry, Cook, and the bench to have a solid game. If the game comes down being close, Coach K will out coach Gott and Lutz.

    Kelly's absence will be felt. I think he makes everyone around him better because of his ability to hit the outside shot OR take it inside and post up. He has a good shooting touch for a guy his size ...... with him Plumlee has been better. I personally like State tomorrow because they are at home and this can be a defining game for them. Expect the Wolpack to play hard and pull this out ... just my thoughts here.

    Duke by double figures.........

  • chapel hill Jan 10, 2013

    Duke will beat State by double figures

  • pgm3434 Jan 10, 2013

    Im worried bout state! Without Ryan its a wildcard type thing. Who do we play? Alex, Amille or Josh? How they matchup against Leslie? Honestly I think Duke could win by 20 or lose by15.

    I do not hate dook or state. I just enjoy the smack talk, as long as it does not get personal!

    As a Duke fan we catch it all year win or lose but we love it. The hate seems to make us stronger so we say "bring it on"

    That's why I love being a Tarheel! When the Heels lose you catch it from every angle. When they win it becomes very peaceful. My life has been very peaceful for the most part;-)

    Kelly averages 13.5 ppg. How did you come up with "Kelly is out. That is 20 points that is not available."?

  • tbrown5 Jan 9, 2013

    Kelly is out. That is 20 points that is not available. I thought that State would win the game 92-80 with him playing so my new score is 74-60. Duke will slow it down but it will not be enough. Duke comes in 15-0 and leaves 15-1!

    Maybe it will flood so Coach K can do his walking on water trick for ESPN. I love having the greatest coach ever on our sideline. Enjoy you NIT t-shirt haters

    Don't get carried away..this is still state college we're talking about, no matter how much they've supposedly "improved".

    I'll withhold my score prediction, and instead, hope the sprinkler system in the PNC Center (or whatever the hell name they call it this week) turns on about halfway thru the 1st half, soaking everyone in attendance and forcing a long delay in the game.

    That would be great. (Especially the black streaks down Kiwi's neck and forehead from his latest dye job LOL!)

    THE PACK HAD THIS TEAM DOWN BY 20 LAST YEAR AND LOST. They learned. State by 20.

    Duke 78 NCSU 71

  • seedofdoubt Jan 8, 2013

    Uncertain at this point with Kelly and Curry hurt and Mason looking worn down. Rasheed seems to be dedicated to defense along with Tyler. Cook stepped up and turned into a shooting guard rather than a point guard (which is impressive that he can alter his game to the situation). On the positive: the bench showed up with some points, which at the beginning of the season was a major concern, and everyone is snagging rebounds (39 to 28 with 11 off rebounds). Giving the edge to Duke, who will win by 3. For those who want to play the home game card...4 of Duke's starters have been there/done that. Home game advantage only applies to freshman...not juniors and seniors.
