Duke's roster has a Jada, a Jayda, a Jaida, and a Jade

That's got to be confusing


Sounds like another jaded season for the Blue Devils..... Cool

If you check Lander, you would know that they're Division II school - and they finished 24-9 including the trip to Sweet Sixteen in NCAA Division II Tournament ... and Lander virtually returns 3 players who led Lander ... one of them scored 30 against Clemson.

So this team is going to be very good in Division II.


I have no doubt that Lander is a quality DII program, but 40+ turnovers is 40+ turnovers. They have a lot of work cut out for them......

I get a chuckle that the rest of the ACC thinks this is the year to finally get a chance to knock ND down a peg or two.

We'll see. Maybe they're right.

ND is certainly lacking experience -- an unprecedented lack of experience -- but ND still has better talent and better coaching than any other team in the league. How far will that carry them? Interesting experiment.

BTW, I think they are overlooking Miami too. I wouldn't be at all surprised to see both ND and Miami in the top 3 at season end.


Thought I'd revisit this preseason prediction.

I'm guessing you aren't quite chuckling now. Top 3 by season end might be asking a bit much (still possible if they turn it around, obviously, especially if Vaughn returns), but currently in the latest AP Poll ND is ranked behind:

#2 Louisville
#8 FSU
#13 NC St.
#21 Miami
and is receiving fewer votes than Syracuse and the same number as UNC.

Granted that they haven't started conference play yet, so anything can happen, but I'd say based on the current rankings and how the teams have been playing to date that the conference's preseason predictions weren't that far off of where ND is now.

At the turn into the New Year, Notre Dame and the University of Texas San Antonio were the only two teams with two true freshmen who were averaging at least 13 points per game.

Anaya Peoples was second in scoring with a 14.5 average and first in rebounding at 8.2 per game. Sam Brunelle was third in scoring with a 13.8 average (31 on 13 of 18 shooting in a loss to No. 16 DePaul) and second to Peoples in rebounding at 6.3 per contest.

For all the woes about the lack of an inside game, Notre Dame has converted only 41 three-pointers in 186 attempts (22 percent). The opposition has drained 108 of them at 31 percent.

Even before the 2 of 17 performance against Clemson, among 348 Division 1 teams, Notre Dame ranked 337th in threes made per game and 340th in shooting percentage. In its last seven defeats, Notre Dame was outscored 198-54 beyond the arc, or an average of about 28-8.

Yep, and we can just add that to the growing list of Duke WBB problems...

Actually, it is the first time since 1993.

In Duke's pre-game notes, it was mistakenly listed as 1989. It was corrected in the post-game notes.

Yes, we'll get to see some of the "lots of basketball left to be played" when Duke travels to Louisville Sunday. How low can Duke go? It's JPM limbo. No matter how low, she finds a way to go even lower, like that one totally stoned person at a party who can miraculously throw their party back horizontal and duck under to win the limbo contest.

For those of you who don't know limbo, you haven't lived a full life yet.

Wake Forest is playing some of its best basketball. Can it keep it up in ACC play?
