First, thank you 11W staff for allowing us to win despite picking OSU to lose. We weren't able to do this during football season. With that said, Duke pulls away in a close one 83-76! :(

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

I just think the edge goes to the hometeam in a very close game (although I truly hope I'm wrong)

I subscribe to the "no shirt in sadness" ethos that we had for football.  I think Duke's inside game will be too much for our bigs, and I will not predict a losing score.

I like your style and agree completely.  But...I like free stuff too!

It's easy to grin, when your ship comes in, and you've got the stock market beat. But the man worthwhile, is the man who can smile, when his shorts are too tight in the seat.

We've yet to be tested and have struggled against inferior oppents like URI and Albany at HOME none the less, lets not forget Walsh, and its at Cameron Indoor. I'm a huge basketball fan but just don't think all the gears are inplace quiet yet. Come December 22 its a different story.

Deshaun starts out slow, and craft keeps them in the game hitting timely shots. Deshaun burns the nets in the second half and TOSU escape with the upset and end Duke's non-conf domination at home!

Pay It Forward!

There's usually about a 10-point officiating bonus for Duke at Cameron, so I suppose the good news is that we're basically even!

69-68, TOSU...I would love to predict another butt-raping of Coach K and friends, but I don't see it happening, especially at Cameron where Duke starts the game 12-0 and is sure to get at least 6 charge calls where the ref starts inexplicably running down the court before throwing his hand, finishing the offensive foul call....

I have a bad feeling about this one, i really do. I just htink the officating at Cameron is sooo pro-Duke that it'll hurt us. I really hope Laquinton Ross gets off to a quick start to help get him jumpstarted. I really think he will end up having a good season for us.
I still have to go with Duke b/c of their big men and the officiating. Duke 76-63. Now please excuse me while i go hit something for picking against the Bucks.
