    Elite: Being unranked and a strong possibility of not making the NCAA tournament.

    I'm also not a NCSU fan.

    Yes, it is pretty evident that Plumlee has been playing well lately. Duke's three point shooters have been very good too. That kind of combination will take a team far into the tourney.

    Embarrassingly ELITE, maybe.

    Maybe state college can get there someday. We'll be sure and let ya know.

    All I can say is it was the Michigan players and fans who were embarrassed last night. Go Green! Go White!

    Thanks Tizu. That was fun to watch. It's always a good feeling when the Spartans tear up the wolverines.

    Michigan State always seems to peak at the right time. Tom Izzo, while I don't care for the guy, is one heck of a coach. He reminds me a lot of K on how he can get the most out of his players. That was a complete beat down of Michigan last night and I LOVED IT! I can't stand Michigan...I think it's a low-class poorly run program...but that's just my opinion.

    Congrats Spartan on the win!

    A total beat down of Michigan! This is the kind of dominance that puts fear into the hearts of foes in the NCAA tourney. The Spartans played so far above the wolverines that I wondered what happened to the best offense in the country. That offense met a stifling defense that broke up passing lanes and forced turnovers that were quickly converted to a score in transition.

    If Duke met up with the Spartans the results could look like last night's at the Breslin center. Go Green! Go White!

    And even greater potential for a pre-Sweet 16 Flameout Loss to a lower seed.

    (As is dook's habit, particularly when the fanbase gets all "puffed up" like they are now. How very embarrassing.)

    In short.........Lee is still saying Hi.

    As we all know, Duke is showing potential for a deep run at the NCAA tourney. With that in mind, we have two potential foes squaring off tonight in the B1G: Michigan at Michigan State. The Spartans are underdogs even though they are playing at home. This should be a good game tonight. Go Green! Go White!
