I carefully watched Duke take on Kentucky and win. Then I watched Duke beat Louisville. Basically, Duke has a big mobile guy in mason plumlee, a go-to guy in Seth Curry, and a decent one-time UA recruit PG, in Quinn cook. They also have great team chemistry, and play hard.
To me, they are a top two team (Duke). With the fact that they have played a tough schedule and have won. In my opinion they are better than Indiana.
that said, I look at our team, and feel we are even better! I honestly believe in a head-to-head matchup, we beat duke by at least 6-8 points.
i don't see a single team in the country more balanced, more athletic, deeper, and/or more talented than Arizona this year. Sorry I just don't.
i don't see on paper, how Duke beats Arizona. Maybe a gimmick defense that throws us off, but at the end of the day, man to man, not Duke, not Indiana, not Kentucky, not Louisville.
Which is why I want to point out, that as the season progresses, if we take it one game at a time, keep being focused, physical, smart, and hungry, by Mid January, Arizona will be ranked #1 in the country.
