Three days after Duke humiliated Kentucky in the Champions Classic, the Blue Devils continue to be the talk of the sport. So, naturally, Matt Norlander and I opened this episode of the Eye on College Basketball Podcast on the team that’s ranked No. 1 in the CBS Sports Top 25 And 1.
- OPEN: Chris Webber and Jalen Rose need to calm down. It’s ludicrous to say Zion Williamson couldn’t start for the Fab Five — and it’s probably wrong to suggest Duke couldn’t beat the Fab Five. Do folks not remember that the First Fab team went 11-7 in the Big Ten? They were a six-seed in the NCAA Tournament!
- 18:30: That said, the Duke-could-beat-an-NBA-team stuff is equally dumb. Duke has, maybe, four or five NBA players on its roster while the worst NBA team has a roster filled with — follow me here — nothing but NBA players. Plus, they’re mostly grown-ass men. So I don’t care if we’re talking about the Cavs or the Suns. Either would beat Duke — or any other college team — by however many points it wanted.
- 21:28: The FBI has given the NCAA the go-ahead to investigate and punish schools connected to its ongoing investigation. What does that mean for Kansas, Louisville, Maryland, etc?
- 24:49: No. 25 Washington is at No. 11 Auburn late Friday. Plus, there’s the Veterans Classic featuring Wichita State-Providence and Maryland-Navy. So we closed with some thoughts on this weekend’s games.
