Well the tide has finally turned. I’ve been waiting for these UVA lines to be adjusted (but glad they weren’t vs BC & Cuse) and tonight the overreaction has created a wonderful opportunity as the Cavaliers head down south to take on a talented yet inexperienced Leonard Hamilton coached Florida State team.

Not sure if I mentioned it on this board or another but I’ve been waiting for the overreaction when UVA hits the road. Defense travels in college ball much better than offense (pure effort vs shooting backgrounds, etc) so I expect better ATS performances from Virginia on the road as opposed to at home with such a flawed team. When FSU beat UVA last year they did so with a senior-laden team who was familiar with the UVA defense. This years Seminole squad is loaded with newcomers having their first experience against this defense and it should take some time for them to adjust which gives great value to UVA’s 1H money line of +175 (as well as +3.5 Pts).

Another big factor is receiving 6.5 points in a game that should be in the 50’s or 60’s. Love love love this spot for Virginia. Wa-Hoo!!!!

Methinks Duke going down tonight at Clemson. Would be back to back wins for Clemson against Duke and UNC. Wonder if they’ve ever done that.

Edit: of course they’d easily trade both for a win last night...
Good call!!!

Well I posted with Duke down 9 or so...
Ha! I didn't catch that part.


So our 1H money line was looking good with UVA up 4 with the ball late in the half. Then their last 7 possessions happened......

0-1 FA
6 Turnovers

Down 7 at the half.

DBR is deleting any post regarding Kobe’s shall we say off court legacy. I had replied to a post that said he was a truly nice guy with something along the lines of do you not remember he raped a girl. That and like 3-4 of my subsequent posts were just removed with no explanation. Yay censorship! Fuck that place over and again.

Barf for the unis tonight

They're not even within the rules since they don't have numbers on the front

Seems like both fan bases hate them

Maybe they'll come to their senses and switch in time for tipoff

It’s almost as if Duke has never played against UNC or in the Dean Dome before. Just not close to matching the fight or intensity. Unreal. Heels completely outclassed them in first half.

I know UNC were 7.5 point underdogs, but between leading for 42 minutes, missing 18 missed free throws, and having numerous turnovers, they absolutely should be embarrassed they lost this game.

sheesh, UNC needs a rebuild.

their entire lategame fundamentals (making free throws, getting the ball in, rebounding on missed FTs) just fell apart.

UNC is only three years removed from a natty. Writing Roy Williams obituary seems premature. Just a lost season. But next season is obviously big for Roy.

That was the Capel game that Duke actually won. Almost like the Rivers 3 game. Wow what a game.

The inbound w/under 10 seconds left. A NC guy flashed in front of the passer (sort of under the hoop, but an easy pass) wide open. They didn't pass him the ball. Is the guy who didn't get the ball an awful foul shooter; or did they just plain miss him?

Amazing that an elite program like UNC has to run the table in their league tournament to make it, just like your average one bid conference team does.
