Josh is not going to have an easy night tonight. He's going to have Matt Jones on him all night. I know Matt's not an NBA prospect but the dude is a damn good college defender.

Really curious on how long K is going to go with Luke and Grayson as the other two guards. I believe Grayson can do okay defensively against Graham but neither have a chance on staying in front of Mason. Frank is the only guy that has a chance, so if he stays out of foul trouble I have a feeling he will get some good minutes tonight. I expect Luke Kennard to lead us in scoring tonight.

Haven't watched the game yet, but Jackson was very efficient last night going 7-9. Beautiful pull up jumper from Frank Mason, but Matt Jones almost fell backwards defending him, not the best job defending the last ISO of the game. You agree with the decision of Jones guarding Mason and Jackson guarding Graham? I know several guys here are extremely high on Frank Jackson , but so far he's having more TO's than assists. Are Luke Kennard and Grayson Allen handling the ball 90% of the time?

I'm fine with the defense on the last play. Mason made a tough shot. I didn't expect Duke to win that game so o was surprised they kept it as close as they did. Jackson was very good last night when he was on the court. He was also guarded by the two worst defenders on Duke with Luke or Grayson the majority of the night. Frank had a rough game last night up until the last 2 minutes. I have complete faith he will grow from this game. Frank is also about 4th right now on the list of guys who bring the ball up. Sadly it's mostly Matt Jones which I think is a mistake. Later on in the season I believe the 3 guys who will be doing most of the ball handling will be Luke, Frank and Tatum.

I didn't. Mostly blowouts. Surprised to see Indiana lose though.
