    College basketball as a whole is pretty bad these days Mike. We ran through the conference last year and before we lost to GSU, the average margin of victory was around 15-20 points. I could be wrong but I don't think any of our conference games were decided by less than 10 points other than the conference tournament loss.

    I think we had one game against Texas State that was relatively close. Of course that is because they play a patient style. I won't argue that the state of the college game is not at it's best. When you use the word terrible however, you are comparing it against other schools, not history.

    I heard today doctors recommend a 12 month recovery time from this injury. That date won't arrive until February. That now makes me convinced he won't play this year regardless of how quickly he seems to progress.

    Actually college basketball is better than ever, except for the very top. And that's because Duke, and other elite programs are losing their best players to the NBA sooner than ever.

    The key for success this year will be PJ and JD. Our starting 5 will be among the best if not the best in the Sunbelt. Look for Russel and Miller to show great improvement. Both have worked extremely hard in the offseason.

    I agree the three year juniors will be key. Hayes will contribute immediately.

    What? I think our average margin of victory had more to do with our execution and talent rather than everyone else being poor and basketball across the country is extremely competitive and we just had one of the best NCAA tournaments in recent history

    I rarely watch Duke in regular season. I'm not planning to do so this season, but plan on watching the Cajuns, and other SBC games on + and other SBC platforms.

    Zion will be fun to watch this year but the funny part is that I'm not sure how high his ceiling will be moving forward. Why? He is very athletic for as big as he is but is not a great shooter and he doesn't have a great back to the basket game. He is athletic and has obviously overpowered high school players but I'm curious to see how an undersized PF who is not a great shooter will do in the ACC and moving forward, in the pros.

    I agree, will be fun to see him...he is a physical freak and his Dwayne Mitchell-Esque dunks are awesome...I did see his highlights from Dukes Canadian Tour...he will a beast in college on physicality alone...if he can put a jump shot in his arsenal, watch out

    Wrecking balls they'd have been...The potential 99-00 Duke team was the best that never was...should've been Brand, Maggette, Avery, Battier, Boozer, Dunleavy and Williams 😳

    Thinking Lebron would be a better fit for Tarkanian in his Running Rebels days. Just saying.
