    Honestly though I'd be pretty mad if I were a UNC fan too, with that pitiful recruiting class Roy is bringing in. Another 2 big loafs and an unranked PG.

    Sweet 16 is 1 round less than your beloved Heels got to the last 2 seasons. It's funny how you omit the national championship less than 3 years ago. Tarheels aren't very good at math are they fellas?

    N-I-T! N-I-T! N-I-T!

    73-68!

    Uhhh... JMM played horribly vs Duke. And you took that Loss too. 2-6 vs Duke in your last 8 games, I'd be mad too.

    Especially if my squad was on the bubble yet AGAIN during Roys tenure... 2 NIT's in 4 seasons LOL , that'll give you an inferiority complex for sure!

    Flaming out is better than not making the tourney.

    That's debatable...

    But whatever helps you "tuck in" at night....LOL

    Yes he is, you mean the one who has coached Boozer, Deng, Brand, Williams, Miles Plumlee and now Mason Plumlee and more to becoming first round picks in the NBA draft.

    Yes he is still coaching the big men.

    The interesting lineup you stated, will be out most productive one. Will have to go small and stretch the floor until Plumlee can show he is worth putting out there for extended minutes.

  • thatrollslayer Feb 27, 2:45 p.m.

    My starting 5:

    PG - Quinn Cook
    SG - SHEEEEEED!
    SF- Rodney Hood
    PF- Jefferson
    PF- Jabari Parker

    Flaming out is better than not making the tourney...like UNC twice in the last 10 years.

    I'd keep an eye on next year's team too, if I was facing yet another NCAA FLAMEOUT here in the next few weeks to a shockingly lower seeded team, like last year.

    (More like 7 of the past 8 seasons.)

    Good plan!

    I too have had an eye on next year's team. I see us losing some height and experience. But, adding some serious talent and athleticism. Another good shooting Duke squad with unlimited potential. Can't ask for much more than that.

    MP3 will need to really improve to get on the court with Jabari and Josh. Jabari is instant offense. I have seen Hood play in person and met him. He is similar in playing style as Jefferson, but more polished and has a year of D-1 experiance under his belt. Much like Curry, he is enjoying a year of practicing against a National Championship caliber team before suiting up for real games. As for Matt Jones, all I keep hearing and reading is that this kid shoots like Redick. That will further stretch the defense for Cook/Sulaimon/Hood/Jefferson/Parker....whoever is in with him. Main question is how the new guys will play defense....which is typically what dictates playing time in K's rotation.

    PG: Quinn Cook, Tyler Thornton.
    SG: Rasheed Sulaimon, Matt Jones, Andre Dawkins(?).
    SF: Rodney Hood, Alex Murphy, Semi Ojeleye.
    PF: Jabari Parker, Amile Jefferson.
    C: Marshall Plumlee, Josh Hairston.

    I have Hairston as the backup Center because we've seen him play there this season. He is severely undersized, but savvy and strong defensively. Amile will need to put on weight to back up MP3, but that's also a possibility with him being 6'8". Jabari Parker would be another candidate to give minutes at Center and stretch the court to a nearly un-guardable level.

    One interesting lineup would be Cook, Sulaimon, Hood, Jefferson, Parker. There's no true Center, but there's three 6'8" guys, two of which can shoot the 3ball.

    The 2013-14 team is going to be freakishly athletic, maybe the most athletic team Coach K has ever had. Not looking past this season, because I think it could be special, but there's no denying the sheer talent on the 2013-14 edition of the Blue Devils.

    Let's take a quick look at the likely 2013-14 Duke Blue Devils squad. Coach K hauled in the nations 2nd best recruiting class, with three 5-star, top25 players.
