The Blue Devils beat the Blue Hose last night 80-49 in the first game of the college basketball season. They take on Georgia Southern tonight to finish off the Durham region of the 2K Sports Classic Benefiting Coaches vs. Cancer tournament. Game time is 8:00pm on ESPNU.
I only watched the first half of this one. The kids seemed to play tight and never seemed to get a good rhythm going offensively. I would blame that on first game jitters and pressing alittle too hard to make a statement. The defense was there as Coach K would demand it be. I don't think we'll get a real sense of what this team will be like until they get a couple of games under their belt, and play more together. Then, we'll see the learning and developing process begin to take place as they grow through the season. I love that about college basketball.
