There's a lot that could be discussed, such as the Shaq trade and Obama raising $7 million in a day, but to stay closer to home ... I'm a little unsure what to think about Duke after last night's win.
We're now in pole position for the Raleigh-Charlotte path to the Final Four, and suddenly the experts say we're title contenders. But you kind of wonder if that's really possible. You see Carolina beat up on us for the first 10 minutes last night and wonder if a team can do that to us for 40 minutes, especially if our shots aren't falling.
At the same time, I'm surprised how tough guys like Singler, Henderson, and Thomas are. After UNC's initial burst, rebounding was a wash the rest of the night. Teams like Maryland and State seem to be able to surge for up to half the game, and then our depth and athleticism takes over.
Given how weak the ACC is, outside of our game with Maryland next week and the game at State, are there any others that pose big problems prior to the rematch? And if we're 15-0 headed into that game, a 1-seed in the NCAAs will be all but locked up. I was startled to see K describe the team after the game as "pretty special". Usually he only uses the S-word for teams he thinks may win the title. So is this now a real possibility?
