Is it me or was Cat’s pass right in BJ’s hands? He attacked Doris, he attacked.03/09/2016 at 4:38 PM #101108
What a poor effort on the last chance..c’est dommage03/09/2016 at 4:39 PM #101109WufpackerParticipant
Shitteh execution on the last play. Inexplicable considering.
But proud of the fight today.

So Duke knew what play we were going to run there at the end and switch so Mav couldn’t get it? Either way, great effort!03/09/2016 at 4:41 PM #101113
Someone take Anya to the frigging salad bar03/09/2016 at 4:42 PM #101114
Honestly. Played above our head today.03/09/2016 at 4:43 PM #101115
So close, yet so far. I’ll miss ya Cat, it’s been a pleasure.03/09/2016 at 4:44 PM #101116
Great effort, proud to be a Pack fan regardless!03/09/2016 at 4:45 PM #101117Fastback68Participant
Mismanaged the end of both halves. Good luck Cat. Bank that first round 1mm.03/09/2016 at 4:46 PM #101118
Jus’ shut ‘er down now..no post season junk….none..03/09/2016 at 4:50 PM #101119
Sometimes it’s better to miss the game all together. You are still anxious, but at least you aren’t angry.03/09/2016 at 4:56 PM #101120
Indeed Chop..sometimes it is just easier to turn on the TV hours later and see the score on the ESPN bottom line and either be totally elated or just take the pain…like Garner..tag him and bag him…03/09/2016 at 5:06 PM #101121triadwolfParticipant
That was some of best basketball I’ve seen yet – right up to point where you got killed. You never, ever…03/09/2016 at 5:07 PM #10112244rulesParticipant
Really sad but proud of the fight. Played way over our heads today on offense. I’m so tired of losing.

Yea – I think our guys finally learned what worked in the second half of the season.

Let’s just hope that Abu, Rowan and the other key elements to next year’s team decide to stay and play in a Pack uniform next year.
That and Dennis Smith Jr.’s knee is 100% healed come October. Actually, the knee will heal up fine as long as he’s doing his rehab, it’s learning to trust it again that can take a little longer.03/09/2016 at 5:34 PM #101126
I’m glad I watched, despite the outcome. They hung tough and didn’t fade when Dook went out to the 9 point lead. A little better execution at the end and who knows. And for once I have nothing to say about the refs in a Dook game. I only saw the second half, but I think the officiating was pretty fair overall.03/09/2016 at 5:36 PM #101127AdventurooParticipant
To say that we played above what everyone thought was our potential is the understatement of the year.
That was a heck of a ball game. Not quite as exciting as the 1974 ACC Final against Lefty and the boys, but close.
We missed a few critical shots. Duke got to the line MORE and made MORE….which is NOT uncommon when Mikey is scowling and barking at the Refs.
All it all, though, it seemed to be pretty evenly called.
The diversity in our scoring shows what potential that we had…..IF we had ever been able to get all the cylinders firing for the entire race.
What a way to go out…..
Good Luck CAT…I HOPE to see you in Red and White this fall, but I ain’t going to bet the farm on it. Just make SURE that you make a good decision. Maybe Trevor can call you and tell you WHERE he went wrong.
Coach Rat really looked relieved…as did the entire Blue Devil bench.
GO PACK….there WILL BE a next year…03/09/2016 at 5:37 PM #101128mak4dpakParticipant
Send Anya to an NBA camp to learn how to play, with his size he should be a dominant force inside, instead of so clumsy. One can only wonder what would have happened had Barber drove in and passed to Abu. I say we would have scored, and tied the game. Instead we put our trust in the unreliable play of Anya. Bad move.03/09/2016 at 5:47 PM #101129
I’m just glad my last impression of the team was the effort we gave in the loss today, rather than what we gave in the win yesterday.03/09/2016 at 5:49 PM #101130

I was wondering what Doris was looking at. State should have scored there, BJ just fumbled the ball, yes? I was watching on a small browser screen so it was a bit hard to tell, but it looked like the pass hit BJ right in the hands.
Along with a big man camp, maybe work on some Steph Curry style handling drills to improve that handle.
On the plus side I did see a number of well executed inbounds plays for scores. That was nice.03/09/2016 at 5:54 PM #101131
Mak – good gracious.
We were incredibly lucky last year when Anya’s basket won the game vs. LSU last year.
I guarantee you he wanted to score and probably even works at it. Fortunately or unfortunately (depending on how you look at it) – our Creator is a pretty fair one. Anya has great size, long arms, and a sturdy body. He’s got decent timing and has given no indication he’s a bad kid.
Look at it this way, if offense came easy to Anya, he probably doesn’t play here and who knows how awful our defense is. Again, the bigger issue is with the guy who is paid the big bucks on this case.
Team showed a lot of heart this game and really the entire season. The staff deserves credit for that effort and gameplanning that kept us this and lots of other games.
