I'm not sure how strong minnesota was (apparently their D was rated good) but Duke pretty much got whatever they wanted and played a good game. This squad is SOOO much better defensively than last year's. Even Curry is playing respectable D.
I'm very eager to see Marshall Plumblee out there because we do need that other big for when Mason/Ryan Kelly get into foul trouble but I like what I'm seeing. Play good defense and you can win any game.
VCU is a very scary team...a bunch of shooters that are pure athletes that play very very fast. Duke is much better pushing the tempo but they don't play that fast and Plumlee/Kelly are often slow getting back...got to be careful.
damn good game. VCU is missing a TON of free throws...if they made half in the last 3 minutes..it would probably be a tie game now but I believe they missed like 6 straight. Rowdy VCU crowd too..I like that. A bit one sided for the commentating side...
Seth Curry has been such a liability today. You just can't go to him...he doesn't play well against fast athletic guards that are in his face. We're better off letting Cook/Thorton/Suilamon handle it...cause when Curry handles he's hounded and it doesn't normally end well.
