well said...don't mind Hayes, he's still bitter about his Heels taking the backseat to Duke in the ACC year after year.
Duhon is a great floor general. He could score a lot more if he needed too, but assumes his role of spreading the ball around to get shots for the plethora of talent surrounding him. When a things break down and the shot clock starts winding down, he always seems to find a seam and beat his man to the hole on a drive. If he needs to shoot outside, he is very capable, and plays the ball great on defense as well. The thing about this Duke team is that they play great D. There really isn't much of a weakness in their lineup. Reddick is probably the weakest link in that dept., but his outside shooting and attention he demands from the opposing teams make up for it, and that's not necessarily saying that he's a bad defender. It's hard to say anyone is winning it all with the way college basketball is. A less talented team can win a game if they happen to be hot from behind the arc in a particular game, but if I had to put my money on someone, I would feel safer putting it on Duke over any other team I've seen play this year. I think they are more balanced than I've seen them in a few years, offensively and defensively.
