An UnBelievable mach up has occurred in the First round of the play offs. Duke is riding a current hot streak coming off a blowout victory over North Carolina in Sunday’s ACC Championship game. Nolan Smith looks to me like the leading candidate for National Player of the Year honors. He has done an incredible job leading this team and providing great defense, scoring and taking over as the floor general since freshman sensation, Kyrie Irving went out with an injury.
Then in the other end of the floor, you have Hampton. The Pirates sport a 24-8 record this season, and recently were crowned the tournament champions of the MEAC conference. Honestly, is there that much more you need to know about them?
I wish I could say that this would be a close one, because come March Madness time, there is nothing better than sitting at the edge of your sit and watching a game come down to the final shot. But in the end, this one will be decided in the first five minutes. Sorry Hampton fans, that’s just the way it goes with these 1 vs. 16 match-ups.
I see the Game going Duke 88 Hampton 35
