Yahoo Sports’ Dan Wetzel and Sports Illustrated’s Pat Forde focus on the Duke Blue Devils in their first season below head coach Jon Scheyer, and debate what followers expectations must be for the Blue Devils in the NCAA Tournament.
PAT FORDE: They’ve rolled after they’ve had their beefy complement of avid gamers. So I could well maybe reveal, glance out for Duke. I feel they personal a huge probability to hasten to the Closing Four. And I feel we will be talking about John Scheyer as a huge name by the discontinuance of this tournament.[AUDIO LOGO]
DAN WETZEL: Jon Scheyer. First 300 and sixty five days coach at Duke. They were 17 and eight. It didn’t glance that huge. Misplaced to Miami, Virginia help-to-help. There became once steady getting things going. And likewise you didn’t know. At any time they hand these jobs off to any individual who’s by no way coached– which is easy an improbable factor– these universities steady hasten with the coach– and or no longer it’s steady nepotism.
Or no longer it’s no longer necessarily household. But in most cases it’s. But it without a doubt’s steady admire, yeah, we’re steady going to give it to my assistant. I mean, or no longer it’s– (LAUGHING) necessary job. Who knows? Anyway, John Scheyer’s won 9 in a row. They’ve won their final 9.
Received the ACC. They’re white-sizzling. They bought avid gamers. They glance steady. I am no longer announcing he has to invent a Closing Four, but he needs an excellent NCAA race.
He does no longer want a notable-round loss. He does no longer need something that appears gruesome. He needs a steady factor to invent of us feel steady about where Duke’s headed and that he’s the fellow. Inspect, or no longer it’ll clutch six years before he proves that he’s the steady guy to apply Krzyzewski.
You may maybe maybe perhaps see that scenario steady over in Chapel Hill. But it without a doubt takes a sustained success. But here’s where it starts. So I feel there’s a little bit of tension on Jon Scheyer to rep popping.
PAT FORDE: Yeah. I feel he is taking part in a little bit with condominium money here. And there are expectations. But you sweep North Carolina, and also you bewitch the ACC tournament to your first 300 and sixty five days? That’s wonderful steady.
DAN WETZEL: I feel or no longer it’s steady–
PAT FORDE: Now, he does want to–
DAN WETZEL: I steady converse of us are wanting to be reassured. He isn’t any longer in any job. He did shapely. He did a genuinely steady job. But yeah. what? Oral Roberts they would well easy beat. And Oral Roberts is correct, but they would well easy beat Oral Roberts.
And I don’t admire Tennessee. I feel they were steady early. A Sweet 16 isn’t any longer too grand to predict out of Duke here.
PAT FORDE: I feel I will decide him to hasten to the Closing Four.
DAN WETZEL: Well, there you hasten.
PAT FORDE: I feel they were criminally below-seeded at a 5. I feel the Oral Roberts sport is upsetting, though. You admire to pray to play that personnel? They went to the Sweet 16 two years ago and they’ve won 30 games! They haven’t misplaced since January ninth!
DAN WETZEL: [INAUDIBLE]
PAT FORDE: I would no longer are wanting to play Oral Roberts! But– so here is the factor. You’re Duke! (LAUGHING) You’re Duke!
DAN WETZEL: I do know! Yeah! what? Teams lose in the tournament! Oral Roberts as a 12 seed is a upsetting, upsetting opponent, I feel. They potentially personal too grand dimension, and they are going to potentially crush Oral Roberts. So they beat– I feel since February on, they’ve been huge.
They thoroughly steady lived on their laurels after they went all the manner down to Miami and acquired housed. That became once steady after they beat North Carolina. They bought screwed against Virginia. They’d well easy personal won that sport in regulation. Terrible name. Cost them an opportunity to shoot free throws for the bewitch late in that sport.
And then they’ve won every varied sport since then. After they’ve had all their avid gamers– because Dariq Whitehead had been wretchedness. After they bought him help, they personal rolled after they’ve had their beefy complement of avid gamers. So I could well maybe reveal, glance out for Duke. I feel they personal a huge probability to hasten to the Closing Four. And I feel we will be talking about John Scheyer as a huge name by the discontinuance of this tournament.
DAN WETZEL: All steady. Here we hasten. Set apart no longer place any extra heat on them. I love what I’ve seen. I love when the personnel’s getting better.
