ATLANTA - Duke used big games from seniors Seth Curry and Mason Plumlee to turn back a late Kentucky rally for a 75-68 victory in front of 22,847 fans at the Georgia Dome.

Yea didn't realize how much we really need Ryan Harrow to be the point guard for this team until last night. He's a much better defender than Polson or May's and give Duke credit they made a lot of tough shots that if we meet again may not get the same result. We have a long ways to go on both ends but Noel and Proythress both showed why they are probably one and done. WCS however just doesn't get it yet, he looked great in both exhibition games but for some reason he hasn't performed well in the regular season. He keeps trying to block every single shot and still hasn't figured out that defense isn't all about blocking shots or getting steals. He reaches in and doesn't move his feet well but that will change just hope he figures things out sooner rather than later. Think we can reel off eight straight wins if we can win at ND and I think its possible and we also have to stop giving up offensive boards especially off of free throws. I like this team but Calipari knew this was probably going to be his most difficult year since he's been at UK, we shouldn't lose as many games as the Knight team but it wouldn't surprise me if we did. All in all this team will be fine come March they all just have to buy into defense and with Calipari as our coach I don't think that will be a problem.
