When I saw Duke had drawn Bo Ryan's Badgers in this year's ACC-Big 10 Challenge I cringed ... then I saw Wisconsin in Maui ... then it became all too apparent ... it would be the first BIG test of Duke's crop of "Bigs" ... something Coach K had not gravitated to since the days we'd all like to forget ... tonight, my fears came true !!!

Bo knows Duke ... and Bo knew he had to neutralize Singler, Scheyer, and maybe even Nolan Smith ... and that the only chance he was taking was that his "Bigs" would be able to handle the previously untested Duke "Bigs" ... he took that gamble and was never behind the whole game !!!

Granted, this was young Mr. Plumlee's first appearance after the hand/wrist ... and Bo DID forget about young Mr. Dawkins, but Bo - one of the last men on earth who can do the "Hand Jive" - prevailed !!!

So, instead of being the guys who'd make is forget the likes of Alaa AbdelNabi and Cherokee Parks, we've been reminded once again what a strange sight "Bigs" @ Duke are ... 

Jeez, I hope I'm wrong !!!
