Mike Gminski isn't really breaking new ground when he says that Gerald Henderson is a big loss for Duke. That's pretty obvious. The question is how Duke deals with it. There are some interesting options, and a lot of flexibility in some ways, although with just three guards, not as much as one might like. We do like the defensive potential of Nolan Smith and Elliot Williams, though.
Mike DeCourcy, on the other hand, thinks Duke is a Final Four candidate regardless of Henderson.
