First, the standings:
Today's Hot Potato is:
Picks by 1, my friends.
What Ken Pomeroy says about the Johnnies:
-St. John's isn't too big - their only true post player, Justin Burrell, is 6'8"
-They don't get offensive boards
-They can't shoot from distance
-Teams shoot 2-point field goals pretty well against them
-Teams shoot 3s really well against them
-They can force turnovers
Anyway, the old adage applies here: you don't beat Duke with guards. And their home court will be negligible since all the Duke i-bankers will be flocking from Wall Street. I also hear tell there's a strong Moody Blue contingent. They're bringing chainsaws and rope and shit that makes you immune to tear gas.
82-63. Go Duke.
