    Without Kelly, Duke is not the same team that got them to 15-0. But when he returns the team could return to form. Of course, all the starters will be worn out and Kelly may never be 100% when he returns so alot is still unknown.

    So did Wake (grow up,a lot as well). I am so surprised at how tough Wake hung with Duke. I'm happy for them, and beating Duke would have been huge for Wake. Coach Buzz has worked hard and it's been such an uphill battle, it's good to see improvement in Wake.

    Thought Plumlee got away with a charge....Still, glad Duke found a way to win this one...Either Wake is a true threat at home (Duke beat them easily with Kelly at Duke), or Duke is not a #5th ranked team. Wake did beat State at home, and State did beat Duke at home, but who knows when State is going to play their "A" game, or "B" game? One thing is for sure, Duke needs to find their 3 point shooting touch again...Kelly will help that tremedously when he gets back..

    Great win. I know alot will say "It's just Wake" but this win was alot tougher than it looked and Duke grew up alot tonight.

    Wake does play pretty darn good at home. I see Duke wearing them down in the 2nd.

    Where were you the first third of the season??

  • 903 mens national championships Jan 30, 9:30 p.m.

    definitely missing kelly today. plumlee trying to stop thomas with 3 fouls on him.

  • 903 mens national championships Jan 30, 9:13 p.m.

    no surprise that we're tied up at half. Bzedelik's done a great job assembling this team, and they play hard for him. It doesn't matter that he's doing it with freshmen because at this point in the season, they've all gotten lots of minutes and are closer to sophomores than freshmen in other programs. he just landed a great HS junior PG out of Waxhaw, NC that is going to be very good but that's 2 seasons away.

    I never noticed it on Plumlee until the last game when he and the Maryland player both got technicals.

    I just notice something about Curry, what happen to the red hair, must be using K's Grecian,just an observation

    It seems so many ACC teams have a Jeckyl/Hyde personality in their home VS road games. Home teams really play tough, even when playing against better teams.

    I hope you're right. I would like to see this myself. Wake played as a team against State. Thomas needs to play like he did against State. If he has a strong 2nd it could happen. Wake has hustle players. I just checked the stats on ESPN. Wake is shooting pretty well so far vs Duke.

    I was thinking the exact same thing about Wake! Wake really does play well at home.

    it would be nice as hell to see coach kry, just once not krying about every single fricking call that doesn't go his way! f this and f that is all he can do! leader of men needs an attitude adjustment!

    Ole K is in true form tonite complaining about every call. As a UNC fan Wake has me a little concern, they have a good team.
