At the Half

April 6th, 2015

well what a half. the teams are tied at 31. As expected, the Badgers are led by Kaminsky and Decker, Duke by Winslow and Okafor, with complimentary scoring by assorted others on both teams. Duke is shooting 50%, Wisconsin only 39%, but the Badgers have made three more "3's" on only 4-11 from outside the arc. Duke has only attempted 4 threes and made only 1 ( remember my keys to the game). Interestingly, Wisconsin has been bad from the line, making only 3 of 7, while Duke is a perfect 4-4( another key). The Badgers are controlling the boards, but Duke has 5 blocks.

So its anybody's game. No real trends in half number one.

But perhaps the big news is that a few minutes into the game, the NCAA tapped me on my shoulder, asked if I was from the Honolulu paper, and moved to a front row courtside seat next to the NY Times. Unbelievable. I am in the corner about 20 feet from the actual playing surface. Only Jim Nance and a few others have a better seat.

    Heh, Jeff . . . ask him about Hawaii men's b-ball's "status,/b>" right now? I mean, we're all in the dark about what's going to happen to them! What's this UH-M will impose their own sanctions? I would say, wait until the NCAA doles their OWN first. Get the scoops, Jeff.

    Duke will/better turn it up in the 2nd half, like how they did against MSU (good to see Izzo get dizzo'd, ha ha!)
