    I was thinking the same thing.

    Also, I hate PP92.

    Oh. Fans. That’s understandable. Fans are delusional.

    Sounds like Williamson and Barrett played really well. I don't think anyone is surprised about Barrett but Zion looked to be the freak everyone thought he was. Who else is Duke playing this week and what level of talent are they?
    No clue at all. I haven’t looked at the schedule for the week. @Wireman May know. He knew who Duke was playing last night before I did.

Losing OíConnell in the first few minutes didnít help with depth either.
    I just saw the box score and RJ finished 12-30 from the floor. He missed a ton of shots the last few minutes he was on the floor. Duke talking heads were saying that Duke fans should be prepared to see some 5/15 type of shooting games from RJ. He is going to shoot as much as he wants and he will be allowed to shoot as much as he wants. Iím good with that.

    They play University of Toronto Friday. They were 14-10 last season.

    I love RJ's game but I have always been concerned at how he would be used on the offensive end. He's not a great shooter and a lot of his points come with dominating the ball. He's very crafty and stays at the free throw line. I think the 5/15 predictions might be close to being right.

    I just read that Ryerson was expected to be their toughest competition this week but it wasn’t mentioned who else they play.

    ESPN Plus says they play Toronto at 6:00pm on Friday.

    Marques Bolden was a disappointment last night. Sigh.......

    Javin DeLaurier, Jack White and Jordan Goldwire have been getting positive reviews from the Duke press.

    Justin Robinson, son of David Robinson, played 8 minutes last night.

    I’m good with that. Duke having these type of players is a new experience. I’m not used to seeing this kind of mix of athleticism and skill from individual players at Duke. I can’t wait to see what they look like in December-January once Cam and Tre are on the court after they have some time together.
