    I think alot of you are forgetting. Two of Duke's key players were nursing injuries much of the year. Add to that that they got out of the MSU postgame press conferences Saturday at 1am and then turned around to play Lville at 5pm less than 2 days later, it wasn't likely they were going to get any practice or film time to prepare a defense that they didn't play the entire season. And even if he did get desperate and called for the team to play a zone, there's no guarantee that would've worked anyway. Lville's loaded with shooters, even Dieng was nailing 20 footers.

    Coaches often employ a 2-1-2 zone to limit dribble-penetration. You give up some perimeter jump-shot pressure, but it is a strategy worth implementing in spurts...especially if you've scouted the opposition, identify their tendencies, and prepare a head of time.

    Some would call this basic coaching Xs and Os...other would have difficulty connecting-the-dots.

    Again, this whole "outcoached" notion seems stretched. I mean, what exactly was Coach K supposed to do? Make his players faster at half time? Increase their quickness during a timeout? They got beat off the dribble by more athletic guards, it's been Duke's achilles heel all year long, this isn't news to Duke fans who have been following the team. The only way we had a chance in that game is if we had quicker, more athletic guards.

    Duke lost, of course he got the better of K. Who is even disputing that?

    But...just because you are the best coach in college basketball does not mean that you can't be outcoached in a game.

    Admit it..Pitino got the better of K...you'll feel better.

    I.E., kiwi did not properly prepare his team (again).

    [and dream...do remember that it is futile to attempt to have a discussion with jr that requires any connecting of the dots]

    I thought Pitino had a great gameplan, but its the same one he had been using all season. To insinuate Duke wasn't aware they were going to press the whole game or play tough man to man defense the entire game is ridiculous. In a case like this, it wasn't really in the cards for K to make any adjusments.

    And who recruited and developed those players? Look, I was pulling for Duke, wanted them to win and I think K is a great coach but I think that saying the game really didn't come down to coaching is just a cop out. At least blame the refs, injuries, Swofford or something.
