Looking back at last night’s Duke-N.C. State game in Durham:No Thacker and Packer in sight!
Got to give it up to Duke for the Devils’ win over N.C. State last night in Cameron.
No sign of Jim Thacker and Billy Packer, but plenty of Mason Plumlee and Seth Curry and more really, more than enough of Plumlee and Curry for any State fan’s liking…
I’m not sure if the combined squads of N.C. State and the North Carolina Tar Heels could have beaten Duke in Cameron last night…You go with Tyler Lewis, Richard Howell, James McAdoo, Reggie Bullock and C.J. Leslie and I’m not certain even that five could have held off the Devils last evening….
Duke was playing ‘Lights Out Basketball’, as Dave Glenn likes to say and with Curry lighting it up from outside and Plumlee playing like a man possessed on the inside, how could anybody other than Thacker and Packer, have been able to stop DUKE last night….
Very solid games by Tyler Lewis at the point and by Richard Howell at/in the post for N.C. State and you have to say Howell at the post, more that just Howell in the post, because of the way that Howell was coming out and shooting from the elbow, from both the left and right sides of the lane, last night….
Duke with the win at home and when you can’t get Thacker and Packer, you can’t expect to win at Duke, or in Cameron for that matter….Would it have mattered if they(Thacker and Packer) would have showed up last night? With the way Duke was shooting, it still may have been a long night in Durham and that is coming from a man that knows Durham real good….
