Barry Jacobs On John Calipari And Drawing Charges

Barry Jacobs has a great column up on the Duke-Kentucky bash and John Calipari's whining about flopping. The salient point here: "Little foresight was necessary to anticipate that, with a number of Wildcats still learning to control their offensive forays about the court, strategic defensive positioning could turn their athleticism and aggressiveness from strengths into a bit of a weakness. Veteran players, such as those predominating in Duke’s starting lineup, are apt to be proficient at drawing charges, their experience working to their advantage. That’s something Calipari can only envy with his one-and-done system."

I was just glad to find a magazine about Duke basketball. I thoroughly enjoyed the magazine. It was well written and very informative. A must read for any diehard Duke fan.Camille H
"I get excited enough about basketball season as it is, but this Guide has been on my screen for weeks now and I'm more excited than ever. Not just about Duke, but the whole league. There are some truly unique and remarkable stats in this book, enough to make you just itch for the games to begin and see how the players do this year. I think my favorite article is the one on athletes and social media, though. I've read it three times already! Great photos, great writing, and lots of both. This is essential. " PlanBee
