Duke knocks out Syracuse, 69-65

Duke knocks out Syracuse, 69-65 Duke knocks out Syracuse, 69-65

The Washington Post can confirm that Syracuse has been allowed passage into the Sweet 16. But when asked about Kansas, Krzyzewski demurred, saying it was out of respect for Syracuse and his good buddy, Boeheim. "Sweet 16, you're going to play a great team that's playing on all cylinders".

Clearly, there is no NCAA Committee on Aesthetics to vote out the Orange. The Atlanta native is the best defensive weapon in Duke's program, averaging a team-high 2.1 blocks per game.

It just looks sad, sitting there.

The freshman is averaging 21 points and 11 rebounds per game, and he scored 22 points in each of Duke's first two tournament games- blowout victories over Iona and Rhode Island.

Neither team felt it played particularly well in the first meeting, especially Syracuse, which committed 17 turnovers, got to the free-throw line only six times, and shot just 31.6 percent from the field. How does Syracuse's 2-3 zone, which has been around since roughly the Mesozoic Era, differ from Duke's newfangled thingy, which dates back to around February?

Jalen Brunson poured in 27 points and Omari Spellman added 18 with eight rebounds for the 2016 national champs. The Blue Devils' own familiarity with it probably means they know where to penetrate and where the holes are. "We should be coming out strong".

"These guys have a tremendous amount of courage", Boeheim said. I think we'll be ready for that game. And you can do that. The FBI, duly impressed that college basketball has reasserted its integrity, calls a halt to all pending and current investigations into the sport. It's always been different. "If we're able to move the ball better and shift the defense and attack it, it'll be a big thing for us".

Syracuse has the three-game win streak to prove it's a better team now than it was at Duke - in the middle of a three-game losing streak. "You could see. I coach 'em, so I could see, they were real young".

Another put it this way, "The passion I feel when [the team wins], being part of that community, that pride of your team, that's something I've never experienced before". The Blue Devils have solidified themselves as one of the most talented teams in the country this year, posting a 28-7 regular season record and finishing second in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

The retail chain said last week it plans to seel or close all 800 of its US stores., which would affect up to 33,000 employees. He'd also negotiated the support of major toy manufacturers that had promised to be part of the venture, Larian said.

No. 5 seed Clemson (25-9), which plays top-seeded Kansas (29-7) of the Big 12 in the early game Friday, won over New Mexico State before hammering fourth-seeded Auburn by 31 points.

Bagley is the best non-professional basketball player now walking the face of the Earth. Where we struggle is on that end.

This was surprising. Boeheim had noted the day before that the Orange's offense "has struggled, and that gets hard sometimes".

Finally: "I don't like to watch it sometimes".

The Sweet 16 matchup will be shown on CBS and will be streamed here. Tyus Battle is on one of his periodic tears and now we are down eleven with three minutes gone in the second half.

Just moving as one. Arizona State Coach Bobby Hurley saw "a rock fight", TCU Coach Jamie Dixon noted that they "slowed the tempo down", and Michigan State Coach Tom Izzo saw "a war of a game".

Michigan State did it in the 2015 Final Four.

Syracuse's success is due to its team defense.
