Come watch Milan... err... I mean BUTLER, beat the Evil Duke!!!
Butler doesn't recruit so they're not a risk.
It seems that the NCAA usually lets the teams run hard and fast (it just happens that this favors Duke because of their depth) and usually calls 3 or 4 more fouls against Dukes opponent. Once the teams start getting tired and Duke is up by a dozen or so, the refs will cal a few non-possesson changing fouls against Duke to even up the numbers and Duke wins. Normal Duke game.
I noticed NJ has two Duke starters, including Zoubek.
Yep! OBOZO launched one of his best F.A.G.(Fighting Against Gravity) Pitches at tht Opener today!
‘course they let a blatant one against Duke go ( hard hit to the shooting arm ) late in the half. He made it, though. I guess the refs figured it would go in, so why bother.
Indiana State? Their only recruit was Bobby’s greatest who never stayed.
Only took once!
I hope you’re right.
Butler has Duke playing BUTLER-style hoosier smash-mouth basketball.
2 on zoubek, looks even enough until you realize that Howard was saddled with cheap fouls early in the first half. now another against Howard.
zoubek seems to be camping out for more than three seconds at a time.
Several DUKE players playing with their mouths open.....Dries out their mouths and tires them out....Not good... the end of the game is not soon.
no prob, the refs will take out the Butler big guy to give Duke a chance to rest.
Both of them.
No blowouts tonite!
Butler is giving them all they can handle, and vice versa.
“2 on zoubek, looks even enough until you realize that Howard was saddled with cheap fouls early in the first half. now another against Howard.”
If I were Duke, I would want Howard in the game. He is terrible & Jukes is killing them.
Well, I was wondering about the calls against Howard. To me, the foul calls are the big problem with basketball. Whenever I get interested in a game, like this one, I always get distracted by the issue.
another tainted call against the bulldogs
