I have a feeling its going to be ugly. But I've thought that about all of the big match-ups the team has managed to win.

Can't come out like we did against Richmond.  We lacked the intensity and energy from the first 3 games, almost looked like the guys might have been looking ahead to the Duke game.  Just with the laziness in our ball handling and defense sunday. 

It's a marquee match-up I'd be surprised to see us come out flat against Duke.

Tubby's teams play their best in November so we've got a shot!  eek

I think his teams play best during tournament time...they always seem to struggle during the season, and then all of a sudden, get a sense of urgency and confidence at the end of the season when their NCAA tournament resume is in jeopardy.

Looks like TV coverage is on the AXS channel -- On Dish I think that's channel 362?

Apparently you didn't look at Tubby's NCAA tournament record with the Gophers...  redface

I am pretty nervous/anxious for the game...we do have a pretty solid team though, and I could see us pulling out the W, though I dont expect it.

Really need Dre and Austin to play well. Up until the second half of the richmond gam Dre had struggled wuth his shot. And Austin seems to be showing up gor just halves never a full game offensively.

Coleman and Rodney have been our most consistent players so far. Also need our bench to step up their play they stunk it up against richmond. Shorten up the bench to Mbakwe, welch, ingram and walker.

And use the bench sparingly with the exception of TM

I like the effort from Rodney there, hustling to get back and attempt to block the shot.

Just a sloppy start to the game with turnovers and missed shots.

Duke up 2-0 three minutes into the game.

Curry fouled and will head to the line for three FTs.
