One coach on Mike White: "Really good young coach and has Florida guarding and playing hard," he said. "The question is whether he can recruit at a high-enough level, especially in the SEC -- where a lot of guys aren't exactly playing by the rules these days." Multiple coaches echoed these comments to me. White probably won't get many McDonald's All-Americans, but does have a pair of Top 75 guys committed for next year: Isaiah Stokes (ESPN, No. 60) and DeAundre Ballard (65).

So focused on Duke last night and play of Kennard, Amile, Tatum — was easy to overlook Florida. Mike White done a nice job with this team.

Cubs win Series, and say Northwestern then makes the NCAA tournament. Biblical Chicago karma tells me Duke will lose title game to DePaul.

One potential landing spot I've heard for recently-dismissed Austin Nichols if he leaves Virginia and doesn't go pro: TCU.

NBA scouts have been enamored with Florida State's Jonathan Isaac when he's been healthy this season. 6-10 and long, but they're most impressed by his shooting: 44.4 percent from 3.

Kyrie Irving on this Duke team after watching the Blue Devils last night: "They can be great, but it's going to take some time. They still aren't fully back yet. Harry's special." Irving spent time down in Durham this past offseason and knows the young guys (i.e. Jayson Tatum, Harry Giles) well.

If you extrapolate UNC's Tony Bradley to even 28 minutes/game, his numbers are around 16 points and 10 boards. No. 1 offensive rebounder in the country right now.

Duke's Luke Kennard was playing great in offseason, but with addition of Jayson Tatum and Frank Jackson, there was concern with how many minutes he would get on the court. His father, Mark, admitted he wasn't sure how much he would play this year and Luke said he never would have thought he would be Blue Devils leading scorer at this point. Kennard has also caught eye of NBA guys. "He's definitely not just a shooter," one told me last night.

Duke tops Florida to improve to 9-1

After Luke Kennard steals the ball and takes off towards the basket, the Duke offense uses quick passes to work the ball around before finding Amile Jefferson all alone for the easy dunk.
