Our schedule can be located here:
Let's go Devils!
Kentucky game on right now for those who forgot
Our guys look very tight out there. Kentucky is getting up and down while we seem to be having some trouble on both ends.
and my god does Alex Murphy look like Kyle Singler... same hair, same number, same position, same height etc.
we are wayy too small out there. If we don't have a collective effort on the boards...we will struggle mightily this year.
I mean seriously...we have JOSH HAIRSTON playing PF...
Line drive Mason with the 2 free throws...at least he made them..unlike Kelly..
Yeah, Hairston worries me but then again, we did with a national championship with Lance Thomas. Yes, Thomas was a little bigger and a little better, but still.
also, for those wondering, Marshall is sitting out due to injury.
isn't he out for another week or so? We really need that size...then again he is a plumblee...and they are...interesting.

good god..what's with these missed free throws. Un-duke like.
Ryan Kelly has got the length to be a potent shot blocker..
A nice little run there by Duke...as always we're going to need to shoot to win..
but thus far, I am liking how Quinn Cook/Suilamon are attacking the bucket...we need that too..
Mason and Kelly with 2 fouls each....man..Marshall can't get here quick enough..
