    Syracuse 64 Duke 62

    First time a ranked (and I'm still scratching my head over that) Duke team has lost three straight to unranked teams since the year we put a man on the moon.

    Hard to believe that as much as Wildcat fans are bemoaning their squad, Duke could really be a bubble team.

    At times it was like those guys had never seen a 2-3 zone before. I liked what they were doing with Plumlee roaming the baseline, but there ware huge stretches of the game in which NOBODY was in the middle of that zone at the free throw line. Makes it tough on yourself when you limit the zone-busting to hitting threes rather than getting in the middle.

    Duke has not exited the AP poll since 2007. There's a chance they might not be there next week now. They're 55 weeks away from the all-time record.

    Lack of a point guard is killing them (take, III).

    Coach Krydnfkdad sold his soul to the 'one and done' devil and it's coming back to bite him this season. Same thing is true for Duke as it is for UK, those role players are role players for a reason (see Poythress, Lee, Jones, Plumlee, etc....).

    Weak recruiting class and these things will happen with the 1 and one model. Catching flak from everyone. Might as well get it all in this year, next year will be payback year.

    They like UK will be fine this year too. People around here freak out way to much way too soon.
