Here’s one we missed about Duke’s move to zone and what it’s meant for Duke’s defense and title hopes.
Former UConn assistant Tom Moore, with Rhode Island until a day or two ago and now possibly headed back to UConn with Dan Hurley, said this: “I was in the Big East for 13 years. Syracuse always had big zones, but this team covers a ton...[Wendell Carter has] the same trait that [former UConn center] Emeka [Okafor] had. He’s so big and long and he realizes that he doesn’t need to be quick off his feet. He can let you leave your feet and go up for your shot and he still has time to affect it.”
Syracuse of course will be playing zone as well. Here’s a great headline we wish we had thought of first.
