    When oakland went zone in the second half, it exposed unc somewhat. Going to need to tighten that up before you play cuse. Btw, davidson would beat oakland by 15 or more, handily.

    Nah, per Oakland coach they played (or tried to play) zone the whole game, including the 38-11 run UNC went on in the first half to seal the game. I saw "cuse" struggling with Cornell for quite a while....UNC is tremendously more athletic than cuse, and with PJ and Leslie back, the zone will be destroyed. And, btw, cornell would beat davidson by 15 or more, handily....so what's your point idjit?

    Say what ya want, roy himself said the zone in the second half gave his guys trouble. As far as more athletic then cuse, where exactly? Ill give ya pj (if he plays) and possibly mcaflop, but who do you habe that is stronger and more athletic than cj fair? Nobody. They gonna give everyone in the league trouble, including Duke and UNC.

  • 903 Hook em banned Nov 10, 2013

    The way fouls are being called to promote offense this season, it seems to me that Duke could just give the ball to Hood and Parker to drive into the zone and pick up fouls all night long when they play Cuse's zone. It will be interesting to see how effective the zone will be when the interior players pick up 2 fouls in the first 5 minutes of each game...

  • MoDukev3 Nov 10, 2013

    All you need is five good dribblers who can shoot free throws and one set offense. Each one just take turns driving to the basket and bumping into the defenders. I guarantee you the present style of officiating won't last long.

  • hoodwinked82 Nov 10, 2013
    Veteran

    ^agree, duke is best equipped in the acc to play cuse, discipline also plays a big part and K's teams are always well disciplined. Good jump shooting beats a good zone every time.

  • hoodwinked82 Nov 10, 2013

    Be interesting to see if the style of ACC play forces Boeheim to use more man to man. I personally do not think he lasts more than three more seasons.

    I was really surprised about how well the whole Carolina line-up looked against Oakland. I know they didn't play a top-notch team - but noticeable improvement was seen in this year's sophomores and the new freshmen played a notch above what last year's freshmen did.

    Did not see a dominant freshman player maker emerge, but didn't see a bad one either.
    This team will make some noise in the league this year, definitely top half, and strong contender for top 3.

    did you see the 2nd half?

  • scousler Nov 12, 2013
    Sports Legend

    When you are up by 30 in the first half ...the second half is kind of irrelevant.

    Oakland went to a zone that gave the 'heels some trouble, but without the intensity inherit in a game in doubt - it really doesn't matter whether they beat them by 20 or by 50.

    it does when you are trying to get better and you get blown out in the 2nd half......its one thing to be close or whatever but they ran u guys up and down the court in the 2nd.

    Tokoto, Hicks for starters.... Brice Johnson has the length advantage and vertical advantage. Meeks, Hubert and James move him out of the lane with ease.

    Keep talking smack, d00kies, I just watched your team get "run up and down the court" by Kansas. Oh, and that "quality win" against Davidson you girls were bragging about doesn't look so quality now, with Davidson losing to something called Wisconsin-Milwaukee ;)

    ^^^^^ Hey gutterball, you're the mowron trying to label UNC's OOC schedule as "cupcake". UNC plays Kentucky, likely Louisville, AT Mich State. Don't thump your bird chest about LOSING to #5 Kansas. Your posts have as usual been defeated....deal with it.
