"But Scheyer and Gerald Henderson combined to make just four of 32 attempts as Duke shot a season-low 26.7 percent from the floor"

"Villanova outplayed us," Coach Mike Krzyzewski said. "I love Villanova's team and what Jay (Wright) has done with his team. You know, they've got a chance to do something special. They can really handle the ball and they play good defense and they're tough. They're a tough basketball team … they're a very, very good basketball team."

i love caoch K to

Duke's name not their game got them the false high ratings.

I thought they were a three seed at best - and I too questioned their ranking all season long.

Now the Duke women definitely weren't a number 1 seed team as they quickly found out. Isn't the head of the women's selection committee a Duke grad?

The ACC has really disappointed me - I though we would have four of our seven going into the sweet sixteen: Boston College, Wake, FSU and Carolina. Instead we only had two: Carolina and surprisingly Duke.

The ACC is a GREAT basketball conference; however this season, they weren't good from top to bottom like the Big East.

One team left from the ACC and the Carolina's, the Tar Heels. That just leaves me with this to say: Carolina! Carolina! Carolina! Tar Heels Go, Fight, Win!

I know a guy who went to Duke Med. Went in a straight man, came out Freddie Mercury. What exactly do they teach there?

I was at the game last weekend in Greensboro. There were ten times as many Duke fans in Boston as there were in G'boro. What does that tell you? It tells me that the people who see the Duke grads first hand don't want anything to do with them.

Maybe now Coach K. will learn that flopping doesn't win games.
