Good first half. Terrific game plan by Izzo to pressure Duke...plenty of Duke turnovers leading to several layups for MSU. And MSU has also been crashing the boards quite effectively. Credit Duke for, unlike last week, understanding the defense's emphasis on Reddick and allowing others (Williams, Nelson) to be a priority on offense.

I think the key is the pressure. Duke is a well conditioned team, and they showed that at the end of their last game. But today, they are being pressed and are exerting plenty of effort in bringing the ball up. So if Duke is down with about 7-8 minutes remaining, I don't see them having enough to come back.

Duke is playing completely uninspired basketball.

They have absolutely no flow on offense.

Ewing has been careless with the ball all night.

As of right now, they don't deserve to win.

Daniel Ewing freaking sucks.

He's a freaking ballhog and he can't shoot free throws.

He dominates the damn ball; he's the reason Duke's offense is struggling...he has his head down every time someone gets open.

He had Redick and Melchioni wide open for 3s on back to back plays, and instead of passing to them he just dribbles away from them.

omg, did you see Shelden's dunk?

it went in and out.

literally

the dunk went through the basket and popped back out...

officials are talking about it...it should count.

the refs disallowed the basket...wrong call

the announcers got word from the officials that it was disallowed because the ball must go all the way through the cylinder...from the replay, the ball definitely went completely through the cylinder.

64-60 MSU with 3:51 left in the game.. This should be a dandy from here on out, which it was already!

Big shot by Davis.. 66-60

It's the right call. Just ask Rasheed Wallace earlier this year against the Grizzlies.

The ball must go COMPLETELY THROUGH the net in order for it to count. Not only that, but the ball popped back out since Shelden Williams held onto the rim a little long and pulled it down, forcing it to pop up which made the ball come out. The ball was still in the net before it popped out, therefore the right call was made.

lol @ Duke and scrubs Shelden Williams and J.J. Redick. How is Williams even going to Duke in the first place? He must have people taking his tests for him, because he looks like he's stone cold retarded. It's a real shame that he's had lottery pick discussion. We're talking about a poor man's Etan Thomas, at best. JJ Redick is of course being exposed for what he is, a scrub.

They said on television that the ball must go through the cylinder...it clearly did that.
