Who ya got? I'll go with Wisky because it's at home, would probably go with Duke if it was in the Cameron steam room.

rooting for Wisc, but was not overly impressed by them vs. GTown. Think Duke is just too athletic and talented.

I'll admit I'm pessimistic about UConn's chances versus Duke - I think they can play them tough but I can't see them winning - but I'd rather play an undefeated Duke team than a one loss Duke team.

I don't think there is anybody in the country I'd pick to go into Madison tonight and beat a veteran Badger team at this time of year. This is Duke's first road game and they're walking into a hornets nest - I have to think they lose this game even if Duke is better by the end of the year.

This. I wouldn't be surprised if this is a double digit win for Wisconsin.

kaminsky reminds me of dirk

The only thing they have in common is they are both white, 7 footers that can hit 3s, thats it. Dirk can put the ball on the deck and attack, and he is one of the best post and midrange players of the modern NBA. Kaminsky would be honored to clean Dirk's shoes.

Duke is so much more of a complete team than us right now that its not even close. We really need to hope the guys step up, but then again, UConn always plays better in big games, lets hope that is true on the 18th.

Kaminsky is also what, 22? Obviously dude isn't saying he's as good as Dirk is right now.

Was Dirk doing all that when he was 22?

I think Duke wins by 8 based on what I've seen. they are up and 2 of their starters, including Okafor, are on the bench with 2 fouls

Dirk was averaging something like 23 and 10 in the NBA at 22, Kaminsky and Dirk are not on the same planet basketball wise. They are both 7 feet tall, white and can shoot the ball, that's where it ends.

Yeah dirk was essentially breaking out in the nba, 22 & 9. year later 23&9 all star. There a ton of stretch bigs we can compare kaminsky to, just not perhaps the greatest one ever.

I'd like Wisconsin to lose by 90 on the off chance that Diamond Stone is there.

I don't care a thing about Duke, but I don't want an undefeated Wisky team prancing around in Stone's backyard for any longer than they have to.

There are few more pathetic sights in the world than watching the Duke managers sprint like hyperactive meerkats around the bench to fetch the stools and white erase boards at the start of timeouts, as if they were trying to hustle into position to draw a charge in the final minute of a tie game or something.

Wisky managers did the same thing, but I'm not pretending to be objective.

Im watching this wisonsin defense thinking to myself we are going to be a lot more active and stingy than this. Wisonsin is slow, soft, and doesnt put a lot of pressure on the ball.
