    Went cold. And the UNC offense stopped screening and passing well which they did in the first half.

  • WhoReallyCares Jan 22, 2013

    21 in the first and only 3 in the second half? Did he not play much or decide to start passing in the second half?

    Besides death and taxes: Duke will always have a Plumlee and Clemson will always have a Booker.

    Glad to see Reggie get the recognition he deserves. He's taken the Heels on his back this season.

    Well deserved, Booker's performance was outstanding, though.

    Don't know but he definitely had a monster game against State, he was even scoring on the Pack's 2-3 zone which Gottfried used to TRY and slow him down.

    He was on fire against Maryland that's for sure. With such a young team, he'll need to "bring it" every night.
