    If you think Duke is loaded this year, next year they might beat the Miami Heat.

    I hear ya, Tizu, but it's got to be tough for Sulaimon - he was a stud last year, and then Parker and Hood arrive and they're co-captains and immediate stars. Duke is so loaded this year, it can be hard for players like Sulaimon to get the playing time they were accustomed to getting.

    I heard that about Dawkins. Man if Thornton could shoot like him.

  • ABCers burning jerseys Dec 5, 2013

    I can see Semi, Rasheed, Plumlee, and Murphy, fitting into the same spot as Dawkins. With all that talent coming in, these guys better see the writing on the wall. If they want to waste their college careers and chances of pro careers, they better get the H our of Durham. From what I saw last night, Northwestern would love to have any of them.

    He would get plenty if he could play defense.

  • Toddler10-21 Dec 5, 2013

    Speaking of minutes, Dawkins needs more minutes also. Kid can flat out shoot. Its Sheed's fault for the lack of minutes, because he is way better than Thornton. Also if Duke can get anything out of Plum would be a plus. Just rebound, play defense, and block shots, (Zoubek about his last ten or so games).

    don't think Sheed is going anywhere.....but I will say that I expect to hear an announcement on Murphy transferring to UF any day now.

  • baldchip Dec 5, 2013

    What is it the Marines say?? "When the going gets tough, the tough get going?"
    Rasheed-are you listening?? One does not earn minutes on the floor because of past laurels!!

    Coach K has 1 thing in mind-winning!! If you will contribute to that plan you'll get playing time!! Obviously, Coach K thinks Rasheed will not contribute as well as other team members. Result-PINE TIME!!

    Sounds like Rasheed needs to help open and close the gym-work harder-longer-...
    That might make a difference.

    Too bad for State that they aren't playing the Heels next week.

    All the more reason for him to transfer. As Duke's roster now stands, they would have 13 scholarship players competing for playing time next season. Somebody's not going to be happy. And that kind of logjam, if it persisted, could hurt recruiting in the future.

  • LUKECAGE Dec 5, 2013

    Great comments; but, I'm sure it's a definite jolt to Rasheed's ego, as it would be for any young player. He started 33 games his freshman season, and now he gets very few minutes, if any (i.e. - Michigan). It won't get any easier for him next season with the 'loaded' class that's coming in; and who knows, Parker and Hood may stay around.

    Thanks to a 3-0 record by the Triangle contingent,plus wins by newcomers Pitt and Syracuse, the ACC managed a tie. After winning the first 10 challenges, the ACC hasn't won since 2008. Maybe when Louisville joins the ACC and Ruygers joins the B1G we can turn that around.

  • Ken D. Dec 5, 2013

    It would be tough for Sulaimon to enter the draft this year. If he continues to pile up minutes on the bench, he might as well go straight to the D League. Maybe he could develop a season ending injury, like turf toe, that first manifested itself a couple of games ago and is just now too painful to allow him to continue.

    That could be his story, and he could stick with it until the combine.

  • 4tarheels Dec 5, 2013

    Typical performance from a talented but young UNC team. They are relying on underclassmen right now, especially with PJ and McDonald out of the game. Young but talented equals inconsistentcy.

    He has what I like to call "Spoiled Brat Syndrome". He doesn't think he has to work hard to get playing time. He's sadly mistaken. Transferring wouldn't be a very wise decision for him, hes a sophomore, he wouldn't play again until he is a senior and have 1 year of eligibility after that. His best move would be to work hard and get back on the court and enter the draft, or just be a team player, work hard and possibly win an NCAA Championship next season.

    Although State will take some beating this year, last nights game was fun to watch. Warren is awesome, but watching the other young players there showed that they can play as the big man showed the most improvement that I've seen in a player at State in years.

    Not a UNC fan, but they played above their heads last night. Congratulations to UNC for a really good performance. Answered every run and hit their foul shots. Strange to see them play like contenders against Lousiville and Mich. State and lose to two teams they should have been able to beat easily.

    Durham is officially under a "Rasheed Sulaimon Minutes Watch."

    Too good of a player to be catching splinters. Duke's most athletic and versatile player. Are there thoughts of a transfer or the possiblity of entering the NBA at season's end? Maggette go out while the gettin' was good.
