Singler Shines As Duke Drops Miami

The ACC Tourney has been upside down so far.  All but one of the top four teams had been bounced prior to Saturday's Duke vs. Miami game, luckily Duke came ready to play.

Kyle Singler put Duke on his shoulders several times throughout the game as he carried his Blue Devils into the ACC Tournament Finals on Selection Sunday.

Miami put their best foot forward but was never able to climb over the mountain.  Time and time again they were behind by double digits, only to battle back and make it a close game.  However, Miami was never able to make a run of their own to put them on top.

The Canes did enough to get under the skin of many of the Devils and even pushed Coach K to his first technical foul of the season.  For a stretch of about two minutes it appeared that the refs were wearing green stripes vice there normal black and white ones...

All in all this was a decent game for Duke, not great but not bad either.  Singler scored 27 as he continues to step up and become Duke's go to guy.  The change could be huge in the NCAA as teams could put more pressure on him opening up shots for Smith and Scheyer.

Speaking of them, Smith scored 12 and Scheyer scored 16.  Big Brian Zoubek dropped 7 points and 6 rebounds, with Miles Plumlee adding 7 of his own.

while Duke may not be dominating teams like Kansas or Kentucky, they aren't that far behind them.  They seem to always find a way to win.  a win tomorrow guarantees them a number one seed, and their 9th ACC Tourney title in 12 tries.
