Carolina 101, Duke 87.

ty-lawsonI think Coach K said it best after the game:

“Carolina played great. And we didn’t play poorly, we played hard. I thought overall we played well, but we’re not as good as they are right now. They’re better than us, and sometimes a team that’s better doesn’t play as well as that, but they played that way too. It’s going to be difficult to beat them. We just have to keep getting better. We’ve come a long away from last Wednesday and we just have to keep improving.”

I don’t have too much more to add…except that I was disappointed one of our guys didn’t step up and keep the game closer. You just can’t go through a scoring drought like we did against a good team like Carolina and expect to win. I thought Gerald had a golden opportunity to assert himself…especially when Danny Green went out in the second half with his third foul. For that matter, I believe that most of our guys (Kyle, Jon, Greg, Nolan) are fully capable of being the aggressor and literally changing the direction of the game.  So all you can hope is that our guys get stronger from this. And next time around, they step up instead of out of the spotlight. Let’s do it all over again in a month, right?
