All the hype on ESPN all week for the Duke-Maryland game, and Duke won by 21. Great game.
duke all the way! (my bro goes there)
Keith: Did you even see the entire game? Sure doesn't sound like it.
Shayne, yes, I watched the whole game. Maryland made it a game for awhile and even led by one point at halftime, but Duke took over in the second half. The second half ruined what was looking like a good game. Sorry, but someone needs to tell Maryland that it's a 40-minute game.
It WAS a great game. Keith you should have "watched" the game. It was incredible all the way through until Maryland just faltered for a sec. That was it and the Crazies Stormed them.
Well, as one ESPN analyst said, "best college bb game of the year." Another ESPN quote, "you can't spell classic without ACC." I spent this afternoon watching two of last years games on ESPN classic, and this one ranked right up there with the rest.
First Half: Incredible, with 25 lead changes, multiple ties, and court energy that was a real treat to watch. The two teams looked even better than last year.
Second Half: Duke comes out with the same intensity, and MD cracks under the intense pressure and begins to miss easy shots in the paint. Duke takes the lead, but MD hangs around, down 5 with 9 min to play, and seemed to be down 5-10 points until the last minutes. I kept expecting Dixon to take over, and for MD to go on the same run as last year at Cameron.
Despite the boxscore, the game was intensely competitive, and was great overall. I can't wait to see part 2, and possible 3 & 4.
