Keys to the Duke Game

Filed under: Uncategorized — jantweil @ 12:58 pm

Alright here are my keys to the game.

Dwayne Collins needs to be dominant. In last year’s upset against Duke, DC had 26 points and 14 rebounds. Duke is soft in the post and by far it’s their achilles heel.

Canes need a secondary scorer. You know Jack is going to show up. Lately its been Adrian Thomas providing the two in the one-two punch. Dews and Hurdle have really been non factors.

Canes need to control the tempo. Duke is one the most well conditioned basketball teams in the country. They can run you out of the gym. Haith needs to play a halfcourt game and cannot let Coack K’s crew get out in transition.

Prediction: Duke 77, Miami 66.

This game is gravy for the Hurricanes. It’s tough to win on the road in the ACC, especially in Cameron Indoor Stadium


PS: Hats off to the entire staff at the BankUnited Center for letting fans rush the court this past Wednesday. That is what college basketball is all about, passion and enthusiasm.
