    The last time there was an AP basketball poll without Duke, UNC or NC State was Dec. 29, 1970. http://t.co/nW5AnTeQU6— Stephen Schramm (@stephen

    Great job of making some of us feel ‘old’….

    I was at the Carolina Classic in Greensboro throwing batteries at the ACC refs and cheering on Harvard’s BB team at the tender age of four.

    With Duke’s big win last night vs. UVa, they will likely stay in the poll this week. What is their midweek game prior to our going over there next weekend?

    Last night was their mid-week game. They have four days to rest.

    Was there any time during those forty-some years that State was in the top 25 without the blues?

    (sorry, my CS training requires that I find the minimum sub-set)

    Let’s not waste any energy worrying about going to Cameron yet, we’ve got a game we could win at WF – but it will be tough. They are undefeated at home and have the same record as us. I would expect those who make these decisions to pick Wake by a couple of points because of home court.
    They are also very young. If you look at their web site, they list 17 players on the roster (obviously, not all have scholarships) and 14 of them are freshmen (3), sophmores (10), and RS sophmores (1).
    Like us, they lost big to UVA, and double digits to Pitt. However, they did lose to Tenn. But they beat Carolina.

    Gott has to get them focused and ready after that nightmare Saturday. They score from every position, so we have to revisit the concept of defense.

    To have any shot at post season, we need both WF games.
