OK, I’m starting to think this Duke being really good without Jalen Johnson thing has some real momentum. Did you see that team out there tonight? They kicked the absolute piss out of a really solid Syracuse team, and just a few nights ago took care of an even better UVA squad. I’m sorry, but this team has to get into the tournament.
Jalen Johnson’s gotta feel like such an asshole watching this, right? Like ‘wow, those dudes really did hate me.” I wonder why they hated him so much? Maybe it’s just the spite factor of wanting to win without your best player. Whatever it is, this hot streak just saved Coach K from about 25 different ‘medical issues.’
