    Vermont, who is now 1-5 had a 4 point play to tie it up with about 10 seconds left. Duke came the other way and tied them up, ref called a foul, they hit one of 2. Vermont hit the GW shot but about a second late.
    Even Jay Williams called it questionable after the game, but Duke's noncon win streak of over 100 at Cameron lives.

    I am no Duke hater, but man they have nothing in the post. And people worry about us next year? Their bigs (Plumlee, Hairston, Jefferson) are terrible and they are relying on Jabari Parker to do all the dirty work in the paint (leads them with boards and blocks, and it isn't even close for second). They may be able to make a run on his back, but I don't see how they could get by a balanced team in the spring. Parker is sick right now though: 22 ppg, 8 rbg, 2 bpg, 13-20 from the arc.

    With Duke's recruiting class for 2014, they will be fine next season without Parker and Hood if he goes early.

    Why isn't Alex Murphy playing. I see him sitting on the bench. He was supposed to be better than brother Eric and got some playing time last year.
