A topic we discuss often, Duke University, faced a very good Michigan squad today, but they only won by two… What hurts more is the fact that Duke led by 15…. Not sold that Duke didn’t play their best yet?  Michigan got a lay-up at the buzzer that would have sent the game to overtime, only the shot missed.

Surely Duke fans are expect the Blue Devils to recover from the dissapointment, but really, with Kyrie Irving back in the line-up, people should expect better from the Blue Devils… Or else… An upset will come to the mist soon, very soon.  The good news is that Duke has made the Final cut of sixteen teams, and Texas/Arizona is very beatable.

Prediction: In this shorter post, I would like to acknowledge the way the Blue Devils always come back, Coach K got his 900th win today, and there is a reason for that… It is no enigma to me, that Duke will come into their next game on fire, and just light things up!

The good: Kyrie Irving attacked today, putting up 10 plus points again, in limited minutes.  Andre Dawkins proved that his shot will be deadly the rest of the way, and overall, the Blue Devils played okay.


Four things about sports is a daily update on four things that happened in the sports world the day before, and this is the first edition of it!

  1. Brandon Jennings returns to starting line up of the Bucks. After being sidelined with injury in almost 20 straight games, Brandon Jennings played limited minutes at 24, piling in six points, six rebounds, and five rebounds in a losing effort to the Suns.  I will monitor him in the coming weeks to track his success.
  2. Duke redeems themselves in win over Maryland. After being blown out to an unranked St. John’s team in a matinee Sunday, the Blue Devils visited the Terrapins in Maryland, where after ten minutes of play, their guards took over.  Up 15 half way through the second, Maryland looked to take over after going on a run, cutting the lead to five, that effort was quickly thwarted by the shooting ability of Nolan Smith, Andre Dawkins, and Seth Curry.  Smith and Kyle Singler both recorded over twenty points as the Duke Blue Devils won 80-62.
  3. Golden Gophers not so Golden! The eighteenth ranked Minnesota Golden Gophers were beat for the second straight time, first by Purdue, and last night by the unranked Indiana Hoosiers!  We all know how tough it is to win on the road in conference play, and I think Minnesota now knows more than anyone.  The home Hoosiers won by three in a very balanced scoring effort, whereas their leading scorer only posted 12 points.
  4. Hat Trick?  What you talking about Hat Trick!? In what seemed to be a goalie-less game, the Detroit Red Wings beat the Ottawa Senators 7-5 in three periods.  12 goals isn’t the absurd part of this game.  Johan Franzen recorded FIVE goals in this game, if I was a fan, I would’ve thrown a hat onto the ice at every goal he recorded after his third.  Apparently hat trick isn’t part of his vocabulary, but a Grets-trick is! Five goals.  One game.

That’ll do it for today’s installment of Four Things About Sports.
