college basketball: Duke has dominating team (again)

The early accolades are starting to pour in for the 2005-2006 Duke Blue Devils.

Williams, Redick selected preseason All-Americans

Duke #1 in AP Poll

This year's team should lose about4 games, and should make the Final Four at worst (although anything can happen). The squad's biggest weakness could be pure athleticism at the wings (what I'm trying to say is that we might be too white).

Letter Never Sent Predictions:

MVP: Shelden Williams
ACC Player of the Year: J.J. Redick
X-Factor/Most Improved Player: DeMarcus Nelson
next reviled white Duke player: tie Greg Paulus / Martynas Pocius
ACC surprise team of the year: Maryland (we're calling for a 2nd place finish behind Duke)
possible history: Clemson finally beating UNC @ Chapel Hill (if it doesn't happen this year it may never happen)

more to come...

Josh McRoberts (above right) is Duke's best white big man since Mike Dunleavy.
