    Ain't it 'bout time to file a Missing Persons Report with the Raleigh PD. State's been missing since 1990...it's been long enough, D!

    Glad the biggest crowd in Miami got to witness a curb stomping tonight! Like I've said all year, there's no title contender in the ACC! Exposed!

    Wow, I just read this thread and posted something earlier about Amile having a breakout game against Miami.

    huge game for the boys. I keep feeling that Jefferson is on the cusp of totally breaking out, but he has to channel the energy he has so keep down the silly fouls. But to be honest, some of the things he gets called for are complete horse pooop. I also agree with you that this is not a must win, but man, I don't want to be down two games this early in conference play.

    Did anyone say the only reason why they lost was because Kelly was out?

    Road games in the ACC are tough. State fans should know that after the last couple.

    If the Kelly excuse is legit they would have never lost a game. Forgot they needed him aganist Lehigh. Terrible!

    Big game for Duke. Not a must-win by any stretch, but it would be nice to beat Miami and get 1st place in the ACC. Plus, it would do wonders for our confidence without Kelly. I like Amile Jefferson to start and truly break out tonight. 14pts 10rbs type of game.

    http://www.palmbeachpost.com/news/sports/college-basketball/no-25-miami-expects-sellout-crowd-for-wednesdays-g/nT4WX/CORAL GABLES - Duke has its Krzyzewskiville.

    Now the University of Miami has its Larranaga Lawn, an area outside the Hurricanes' basketball practice facility where students were preparing Tuesday to camp out overnight to assure themselves seats for Wednesday night's game against No. 1 Duke at the BankUnited Center.

    "There's a buzz, there's no question about it," UM coach Jim Larranaga said. "There's a lot of people I haven't heard from in years call me and ask me for tickets. Although I wasn't happy to say no to them,

    I'm very happy the reason I'm saying no to them is that we'll have a sellout crowd."
    Wednesday night's expected capacity audience of 7,972 will match the biggest home crowd ever to watch UM play since the BankUnited Center opened in 2003. A 2011 game against Duke also drew 7,972.
