It was a really good game. You guys are very good. Both teams played great defense. I thought Duke really picked up thier D in the second half. They stopped helping off Thomas which is why i think you guys started going away from him. Sheed, Cook, and Thornton locked up Craft, Scott, and Smith Jr so you guys struggled to hit shots. But seriously you guys are a hell of a team and Thad Matta is a damn good coach. You guys will be a very tough team in March.
Duke has now beaten 3 of last year's final 4 participants.
