Cannady heating up, but the D is disintegrating.

Pretty funny that Duke could basically hand check foul Princeton to death during that last possession of the half and still not get in the 1 and 1. That probably does not happen too often in college basketball.

Overmatched but not the least bit embarrassed. Needed to get 3s and make 3s but long arms and fast feet on defense by duckies.

Duke is also getting some pretty choice shot selections.

The brightest spot is Stephens looks like the guy from years past.

Movement off the ball is waning on offense, which is leading to more turnovers and blocked shots.

Stephens in years past was always the guy I worried about the most. Had not heard too much about his play this year.

When you're down 36 with 9 minutes to play, they should invoke the mercy rule. Just not fair.

Sparse Duke student section chants in last couple of minutes:

“More Than Double!”

“We Want Harvard!”

On one hand, if I'm Yale or Princeton I have to think long and hard about wanting to do this again any time soon.

On the other, I have zero respect for Duke as it is emulating the worst practices of SEC football, which refuses to schedule a single true road game anywhere except for out of conference. That Duke basketball could win a national championship without playing a single true road game (OOC) is a joke.

Princeton had the lead in this one 18-16.

From that point on, they got outscored 85-32, mostly by Duke's subs.

Oy.

OTOH, what I respect about Duke is how they keep trying to increase the margin of victory no matter what the score. One reason they almost never yak up a big lead is that they never relax or take the opponent for granted.

I kept searching for any semblance of offense from Princeton in this game before it turned ugly. Yes, they got those backdoor hoops against the inexperienced at D Duke freshman to claim the early lead, but every single one of those involved a Tiger guard dribbling around for 20 seconds and then drawing a double team when he got near the paint. Other than those plays there was zero real ball movement, and no touches for anyone but the man with the ball. Just weird.

I"ve not seen too many college teams ever that have that much shot-blocking ability. Even when you don't turn it over, the only way to have a decent scoring game is to hit a ton of threes or have NBA-type finishers.

As long as they can take the same when the shoe is on the other foot. Obviously not this year, but what goes around comes around.

Frankly, there's no reason Duke should have done anything but throw the ball around for the last couple of minutes (at least) in this one. To start skying around even then shows a lack of class and sportsmanship.

The Tigers have not had their typical non-PG passing and movement off the ball for the past the last two seasons. Early last year there were a few possessions where the offense ran through Aririguzoh in the high post, but it never developed.

So that half point was critical.

The 1st half spread was Duke -16 1/2 and I took the points.

Has Princeton ever given up 62 points in a half?

I guess with their 4 wins (not counting the D3 exhibition game) coming against teams 5-36 overall the final result was not unexpected.

Looks to me like Duke had several guys that could stay in front of Llewelyn.
