UNCW/Duke NCAA game thread(man that feels good!)
UNCW has a tall task in front of them...literally. Although Plumlee isn't considered a marquee center in college hoops, he is an older graduate student, who is seven foot tall and weighs 260 lbs. He will be the biggest player we have faced all season, and IMO our biggest challenge today.

Duke plays mostly zone these days, so their big man is protected from a lot of direct challenges in the post on defense, which helps keep him out of foul trouble. But get him in foul trouble we must. The best way to do so is to get this into an up and down game, so Duke can't get set in their zone defense. Then force Plumlee to defend the basket on drives. Gettys may also have some chances in the post to get some fouls. If CJ can be effective at all today, our chances increase tremendously.

Ingram is a potential lottery pick, but at 6'9" he spends most of his time on the perimeter waiting for the 3 ball or looking to drive. His season high for points is 24, so he doesn't seem to be a threat to take over a game and go off scoring wise. Since UNCW will only play man, it is likely Flemmings will have the task of covering Ingram. I also expect Dylan Sherwood will see more PT this game to put some height on Ingram when Gettys is out. Sherwood is a saavy veteran who seems to have the ability to draw fouls on the charge. Let's see if he can get a few on Ingram.

Then there's Allen. He's easily their most aggressive player, who looks to drive to the bucket as much as possible where he can score, dish or draw fouls. As an 83% FT shooter, he is going to do damage today. He also hits threes as a .423 clip. He's 6'5", 205 lbs. CJ Bryce, who is a smart defender and is our biggest guard, will likely guard him at 6'5" as well.

So, who starts? Typically we start Gettys, Flemmings, Ingram, Ponder and Talley. I can't see any reason to change. We have to come out with our best offensive squad so we don't set ourselves up to fall behind early. I'm afraid Gettys will pick up 2 fouls really quickly, but that's okay. Bryan and Cacock have shown they can play tough in the post, and grab some rebounds with their strength and athleticism. Maybe Gettys can swat a few while he's in, just to cause some doubt in Duke when they drive.

Love my Seahawks', but i'd be a fool to call the upset. Yes, it can happen, but I give us about a 1-5 chance to take this. If Plumlee picks up his 2nd foul by the middle of the 1st. half, our odds increase to a 1-3 chance, if not, we're in trouble.

I'll be at Trask with my two girls who are skipping school....

It does feel good. The odds are against us, as they have been for the last two years. The doubters are many. The champions are few. It's time to rise up and spread those wings Seahawks!!!

Go out there and play your game guys! Have fun, enjoy the moment.

Hope they realize that no matter the outcome we are with them and are proud of them!

Go Seahawks!!!

RE: UNCW/Duke NCAA game thread(man that feels good!)
I've been considering the age and experience on the court today. There is a big physical and mental difference between Freshmen and Seniors. I also think Duke may feel the pressure with their youth. Ingram is one and done, Allen may go, and there are a lot of people picking this as a potential upset. The idea of a Mighty Duke team falling to UNCW has got to be on their minds. Perhaps, some full court pressure and in your face defense will create some cracks.

Ponder redshirt Sr.
Sherwood Grad student
Ingram redshirt Jr.(sr.)
Bryan redshirt So(jr)
Gettys redshirt Jr(sr.)

Allen - Soph
Ingram - Fr
Kennard - Fr
Thornton - Fr
Jones - Jr
Plumlee - Grad

That's the thing. I don't see this team as a "mighty" Duke team.

Agree this is not one of their better teams from the past decade.

And if not...? Anyone can make a guarantee, what are you backing it up with (for the record I really dont care what the answer is, just stating a comment since it seems everyone makes empty guarantees nowadays)?

It's sports. We're fans, short for fanatics. I believe in my team. We're winning today. Am I required to back this up with a monetary stake?

Heading to Trask in a bit. I just can't be at BW's today. I feel like I'll end up getting into a fistfight with a Duke fan if I were to do that. Have fun over there, and GO SEAHAWKS!

No you are not and it doesnt always have to be money either. I was more just pointing something out. I do like your chances today. Hopefully your guys come out ready to go and not timid.

Yeah it will be interesting how they call or dont call push offs on the offensive end. Either way UNCW needs to be aggressive to the basket and see how Duke responds. Looks like the refs are happy to call fouls, so give them reasons to in your favor.
