I guess the refs decided to "balance" out the fouls this half. How is it possible for Duke to already be in the double bonus halfway through?
BCS win, Women's Final 4/National runner-up, Men's Final 4/National title, trip to College World Series. Excellence like no other before.
I appreciate the effort of Ware, Smith, and Siva taking it right at Duke's big guys but I keep having Sosa flashbacks. At least half their blocks are an undersized guard trying to shot over a guy eight inches taller.
Russ needs to hit these two free throws (shocking, I know).
And Ware needs to stop fading left and shooting with his right hand while driving. Go up strong.
If we lose this game it will be be because of boneheaded turnovers.
Bullshit call Zach had his arms straight up.
It doesn't help that Duke has made (and shot) 12 more free throws. I'm not going to blame the refs for favortism if the Cardinals do wind up losing because there are plenty of other factors but it makes you wonder.
I also think no Dieng is a huge difference maker. If he was in there my gut feeling tells me the Cardinals would be tied (or up a point or two) right now.

Another boneheaded play. Geez
Dukes gonna luck out.
Must be nice to shoot 90% from the FT line as a team.
Untimely FT misses... Literally the spread right now.
There may not be such thing as a moral victory but there are plenty of positives from this game (win or lose). Louisville played a legitimate Top 10 team down to the wire without one of their key defensive players. Given it is only November if I am an upcoming opponent it is time to worry about what Pitino hasn't pulled out of his bag of tricks.
If it means crushing the Mildcats later this season I'll take a close loss now.
I am very impressed with SVT and Harrell's play. I wish Chane could have played a bit better.
Fuck Duke. That is all.
Price never should have been in the game there. SVT has been dominant on both ends, but Pitino put Price in down the stretch. The result, in the span of 20 seconds in a two point game with 1:30 left:
-Price lets a pass go off his hands out of bounds
-Price doesn't box out and Plumlee gets an offensive rebound
-Price fouls Plumlee after letting him get position on the low block
That was the turning point of the game, and there was no excuse for Pitino to put Price in over SVT in that situation. As dumb as some the mistakes the players made, that one was worse.
Maybe SVT needed a breather. Did ya ever think about that in your little analysis?
Needed Luke and Wayne to step up tonight and neither did, only 2 points combined..
Can't cry about this too much. We got more shots than they did in the 2nd half (which is a big part of our game, due to being average shooting), but couldn't overcome the FT shooting.
Hate that they lost, but give Duke credit, they hit some big shots and didn't buckle under the pressure.
Beatles, Bill Withers, Citizen Cope, Jim James, Levon Helm, Lupe Fiasco, Waylon, Beastie Boys, Pink Floyd, Paul Westerberg, V-roys
Really? Needed a breather with 2:00 left in a one possession game? When the under-four timeout happened at the 3:03 mark and Duke called a full TO at 4:26?
I guess black ops 2 got the basketball team too...I'm going to find some loophole to sue the makers for producing games during season
man this day sucks.
In a city full of Bluenecks, I still bleed RED!!!
Don't worry Duke will lose in the tourney to Arizona or Wright St because that's what they do. When we hoist the NC who will care about this loss. Also, Duke is in the dying ACC don't worry they will soon be an also ran.
