From a UVA perspective, Mike Scott was really impressive. UVA does a good job of playing solid defense and playing the game at their pace. It's not all that exciting, but it's effective, and it was nearly good enough to win last night.

He stuck around this past summer and fall taking classes during the Lockout (not sure if he completed the fall semester, given the NBA started back up...final exams would have been in early December, and the lockout ended officially Dec 8th...).
Read that Kyrie Irving has a "5 year" agreement with his family to graduate from Duke. We'll see if he can pull it off but it'd be impressive nonetheless. I guess he's planning on taking summer classes and working out with current Duke players every summer.
He needs ~32 classes to graduate (Duke doesn't do credits or hours or anything like that, a class is a class...or more accurately, every class just counts as 1.0 credits). He probably took 8 his first year, another 2-4 in the summer (maybe 2 in the summer before his freshman year as well), and then another 4 this past semester...puts him between 14-18, so about halfway there. If he can take 3 classes a summer the next 4 years (there are two summer sessions, and it's possible to take two classes in each session), he'll be able to finish.

Also, Gary Williams night in College Park, as the court is renamed in his honor:

Ugly, but a win. Mason Plumlee needs to play like a man the rest of the season.
Since the 2 for 10 free throw debacle against UVA, he is 15-18 from the line the last 4 games. May be a small sample size fluke, but even if he could just shoot free throws at a 60% clip the rest of the year, it would be huge.

"To me, it was a loss today for me," Krzyzewski said. "I didn't like today. And if my team doesn't like today, then we'll get better. If my team is OK about today, then we're going to fight a little bit, because I'm not going to change on this."
"We did enough to win, which almost makes me sick to say that," Krzyzewski said. "I hate saying that we did enough to win. I mean, that's not who I am and not who this program is. You don't do `enough to win.' We play really good basketball, and then hopefully we win. But that's the story. ... I'm not pleased with today one bit. One bit."

I think they have shitty decision making in tense moments. That's tough to fix as its now Feb and the freshman are still playing like freshman even after 4 months (including China trip).
The last few losses have been due to lack of focus. That won't be a problem for the UNC game wednesday, so that game should be telling.
