Page 2 of Pathetic finish for the Blue Devils. Blew a 15 point lead and a 10 point lead. Maybe I am overreacting but when I look at this season and Duke... 37 comments | 1285 Views | Go to page 1 →

    Yes, 4 of 15. He was in full-on "Bagley is out" mode, although Bagley was in.

    I remember Trevon Duvalís free throw more than Graysonís and I remember Gary Trentís turnover in the final minute. I donít recall Grayson turning the ball over in the final minute.

    I remember Gary Trent’s turnover and Trevon Duval’s missed free throw. Both of those came on the last two plays on offense for Duke.

    Now you really sound like a Kentucky fan lol.
    Duke has won 5 of their last 6 and is 24-6 overall. Their defense has improved since the switch to zone and Grayson has been found again in February. Last night was another bad loss but I ain’t too mad about this season and where they are currently. Other than Trevon Duval anyways.

    It appeared the Va tech fans thought the refs were friendly to Duke. Loved the coach pulling a Sam Wyche and telling the fans to stop cussing and throwing things on the court.

    We just can't defend anyone this year. I don't even know what defense Coach K was playing in the second half. Grayson is the only guard that we have that can run the offense, Duvall can't play in the half court. We'll be alright though in the tournament. Plus the officials hosed us pretty bad towards the end

    Gotta remember VaTech is a really good team when they want to be. They are the only team to take down UVA, Clemson, UNC, and Duke this year. If there is an up and down team in the ACC, it is VaTech.

    Duke fans on here are fortunate that FF74 apparently doesn't have an axe to grind with Coach K.

    This is very true.

    That kid grabbed Wendell Carter on the rebound play in front of the ref. No call.

    Either way though, missed free throws, untimely turnovers and not boxing out in the last minute of the game did them in. They can only blame themselves. They keep making things harder than they need to be.

    Usually dependent on their ability to hit threes and prevent the other team from hitting them. I think the two best shooting perfoances of Louisville’s season came against VaTech and the Cards ended up sweeping the Hokies.

Duke going undefeated while Bagley has been out(this makes zero sense) and 4.) Duke switching to a predominately zone defense because they canít play man to man defense.

    This season has been maddening, exciting, frustrating and encouraging. My biggest issue is Trevon Duvalís inconsistency and his inability to shoot. Drives me nuts. Everything else has seemed fixable except for that.


    Duke destroys UL. UL wins at Virginia Tech. Duke loses at Virginia Tech.

    College basketball is stupid. But Iím a moron because I say EVERYONE gets up for Duke.
    Agree with all of that and yet I didn't expect Duke to win this game. They always,always,always struggle in Blacksburg even when they're clicking on all cylinders. I would like to see Grayson attack the rim more(he has the ability) , 15-3's is a lot for even Steph Curry
