Coach Krzyzfgkjkncsbjdski Respects Wolff, Terriers

There are a few previews out for Monday's game, mostly focusing on Duke launching its national title ambitions. But this one from the Durham Herald-Sun does quite a good job of breaking down the game and giving some good background on our team. The author mentions Wolff's ACC ties (assistant coach at Virginia and Wake Forest) and the fact that he has knocked off former Duke assistant Tommy Amaker's Michigan Wolverines in each of the past two seasons. He also gets Coach K's thoughts on taking on the Terriers:
"Dennis has established a program there," Krzyzewski said. "They've probably won their league half the time. That's pretty good. In leagues around the country, when somebody does that, you have to say, 'Whoa, what's going on there?'

"They're well-coached, and he's always played a very good nonconference schedule, so I know they'll be well-prepared. They've been one of the nation's leaders in field goal-percentage defense and scoring defense. His kids know how to play."

Sure it's the basic lip service he would give to any low- or mid-major team he was about to play, but it's always nice to hear those things from one of the greatest coaches ever.

Oh, still think the outcome of tonight's game is a forgone conclusion? Not so fast, says Dukie Lee Melchionni. From the same article:
"Monday is big. If we lose, that's the end of the tournament, so we're excited and want to get after it. We're looking forward to getting started."

See that? That "IF" means anything is possible. Of course, it also means a 50-point blowout is possible.
