    Don’t get how duke is a top 12 team in both polls. Any other team losses 3/4, including a blowout loss, and one to a bad WF and they are lucky to even be in the top 25 no matter how high they were.

      It’s the duke rule which states no rules that every other program must follow do not apply to duke.

      I paraphrased a little bit since I can’t remember all the lawyer terminology.

      It was supposed to say….no rules that every other program must follow apply to duke.

    There are going to be very easy paths (vs SDSU / Dayton) for teams to get to the final four and very hard paths (vs Kansas / Baylor) We will see where we end up. Pray for the best. But when it gets down to it, we just gotta play better than our opponent. No more losses from here on out. Periodt
