Who do you guys think will win in this showdown of most likely future #1 Duke and the former #1 Wake Forest?

duke wins by 15.yea but that's maryland, a team that we are actually bigger than..which is a rare thing for duke. Wake has so much more talent and is much bigger, add in the fact that they are athletic and you got yourselves a tough team.

If duke wins they aren't going to win in double digits, duke is playing great but Wake has superior bigs and teague will probably be a big hassle. Should be a hell of a game and a true statement game for Duke.

Duke is playing unbelievable now and got they got lots of momentum right now. I think they can pull this out i'm predicting by 3 or 4. Sucks that it's not gonna be in cameron indoor though. And if they beat WF it'll make me feel less stupid for picking them to win the nat'l championship.

I like WF since they're at home, I believe. It will be close no matter what, though.

Duke's defense has been way too good this season I think it will be the deciding factor that wins them this game.

Lets go Wake!! If Wake wins then Carolina is only a game back in the conference. No brainer who to root for.

doubt paulus or smith will guard teague. i was thinking mcclure/henderson/scheyer combination on him

I can care less about the #1 ranking in the nation or the conference (okay maybe a little in the conference:cool:)..this game serves as a "can Duke handle the superior big and athletic teams" statement. Wake beat the tar heels so they can flat out play, if we can beat them then I will feel much better about the possibility that duke can go far in the NCAA tourney..and the ACC tourney. This game serves much more than just bragging rights or being #1, it's going to tell how much Duke has grown/if they have.

it's going to be one hell of a freakin game.

What a terrible call on that travel. There is no way that should be called a travel, seeing as there was someone under him.

Good win for Wake. It was a fluke that they got out-boarded by Duke.

Also a fluke that Duke only shot 33%.

Feb. 22 match-up at Cameron should another good one.

what an entertaining game:clap::clap: That is a little of march madness style in January. very nice. Interesting calls throughout the game but man nice game:cool: I am proud of the Duke Blue Devils, they truly fought their *** off, even if there were only 2 people.

Great game wake

I thought the refs were really inconsistent all game. It was a really entertaining game but I think the refs calls(for both sides, but they seemed to favor the home team) kinda took away from the excitment.

yeah i agree, whacky refs.(on both ends, but noticeably in favor of WF IMO)
wake was too physical, reaching in, hitting guys arms/hands on shots, etc and didnt get called a bunch of times.

not to mention that 2nd to last play, where duke got there rebound, and came down and fell b/c of two WF players... they called travelling? wtf?...

That was an excellent game for this time of year. God damn at that Al Farouq Aminu putback in the first half! :O

Although the Blue Devils lost, they made a hell of a comeback. I watched, and Gerald Henderson and Kyle Singler looked great to me. I like how Duke is lookin with those two, along with solid, under-the-radar, players like Greg Paulus and Jon Scheyer, and whenever you got Coach K you're in good shape. I predict they go all the way this year.

while I like the sound of that, I don't think they will. Honestly I want an ACC championship and at least sweet 16/elite 8 and I will be content. They are just too small and unless that third guy steps up against top teams, they are going to have a hard time. Henderson and Singler can't do it all. I really want an ACC championship though.

It was a hell of a game, and LOL at the Duke fans complaining about ref favoritism:rolleyes: If I had a dollar for every Duke flop that got a charge called I'd be a millionaire. But anyway, Duke just wasn't athletic enough and Wake should have blown them out but poor free throw shooting and just lack of hustle (I was ready to drive to WS to slap the **** out of James Johnson waiting on that rebound to just come to him). Duke never gave up and Singler had a terrible game and still filled the stat sheet, that guy is the real deal. I dunno what was up with the traveling call but I don't think anybody fouled the guy he just fell and the had to call something. Should be more upset that you just let Johnson lay the ball in for the win. Man, what a hell of a game. Duke and Wake can play with anybody and I think both proved they are teams that can go far in the tourney b/c of the defense they play.

Wake is IMO a top 5 team, and Duke lost by a basket at Wake Forest, where they haven't lost all year, and they beat UNC there. I think we'll get a good measuring stick of where Duke is nationally when they play UNC. The Big East is lookin really good, but I honestly think that Duke is better than those teams.
