Pitt loses to Virginia Tech in overtime, 70-67

So how does one outshoot their opponent 44% to 38%, win the rebounding battle by double digits, play to a virtual tie in the turnover battle, hold three of a team's five starters scoreless, and still lose a game? In case you've ever wondered, you had a front row seat tonight in Pitt's ugly 70-67 loss to Virginia Tech. The answer, as we found out, is to miss free throws while allowing...

Virginia sneaks by Hokies, should fans be concerned?

My undaunted belief in this team was finally shaken a little on Sunday afternoon. In case you missed it or drank it away immediately afterward, an undermanned and outgunned Virginia Tech team ran off 16 consecutive points (as part of a greater 30-9 run that spanned both halves) and went up 43-33 in front of a rabid crowd, and we were certifiably on the ropes. It was bad, but luckily...

Referees give Jerian Grant an extra free throw in Notre Dame's OT win over NC State

A point sure can make a big difference in a college basketball game.  In the second half of the Notre Dame/NC State game, Jerian Grant was fouled and given 3 free throw attempts.  The problem was, Grant's foot was on the line when taking the 3 point attempt.  As seen in the video below, captured by @JamesCurle, Grant makes the bogus third free throw. With the advantage of this...

ACC Bubble Analysis for January 25, 2015

Who is going to be the ACC’s 7th and possibly 8th NCAA teams? You better make your move now, if you are on the bubble. In my ranking system, any RPI top (100) win is a good win and any RPI top (50) obviously worth more. Any losses outside the RPI top (100) is considered a bad loss, and outside the RPI (150) are even more damaging. I’m not counting future results only if I think...

Coach K gets 1,000; Duke Wakes Up Against St. Johns as Tyus Jones Scores 22

Congratulations to Coach Mike Krzyzewski for achieving his 1,000th win against a very tough St. Johns team.

Yes Duke was coming off wins against Pitt and Louisville but still there were issues Duke had long stretches near the end of those games where they let up, they were...

The Healing Power of Coach K's 1,000th win

For anyone who takes offense or thinks I am trying to make Coach K’s 1,000th win about myself, all I can do is apologize and ask that you try to understand my perspective. I realize that this is a Duke blog, and today is most definitely a day to celebrate Coach K and Duke basketball.  A tragic event occurred the other day involving someone very close to me, and because...
