Duke After A Loss

Coach K says he's
proud Duke was almost able to win the game,
because they showed a lot of
heart in coming back, but that the team that should have won did win.

But what a lot of people who don't follow Duke closely will miss is just how
useful a loss is to this program.

Coach K does as good a job as anyone in turning a loss into a learning
tool. His main public criticism was that Georgetown did a better job of
playing as a unit than Duke did. Expect that to be hammered home this
week, and if history is any indication, that it will have a positive impact on
the following game.
