    Are you kidding me?

    So, let me get this straight.....so back in November, the LA Tech men blew an 8-point lead with 12:39 to play, and managed to lose a tight game to LSU in Baton Rouge by 7 points. (In fact, the game was tied at 62, with 2:29 remaining.) Then, LSU --who honestly didn't appear to have a team as athletic as LA Tech-- went on to post a 16-2 record in the SEC, and won the SEC regular season mens basketball championship. Meanwhile, Tech struggled to finish somewhere around 8th in CUSA.

    There is a minor detail called coaching mixed in there somewhere.

    Re: Are you kidding me?

    Losing one or two key players can make all the difference. Duke hasn't been the same team since they lost Zion. They're still real good, but certainly no longer the #1 team in the country. With Exavian Christon & Derric Jean I think we would have won more games.

    Ding, ding, ding! Give me any other team in the country who loses their 2 best players for a huge chunk of the season and see if something similar doesn't happen.

    Okay. So, Jean and Christon went out in mid November. That's 4 complete months ago. What's the current status of these 2 guys? Can either Jean and/or Christon return for the CUSA Tournament? I don't know the extent of either guy's injury, but 4 months is a long time. Any info on a possible return to the lineup by either guy?

    To someone else's point on this thread, Duke lost Zion Williamson a month ago, but he's back now.

    HD:

    It appears both will medical redshirt this season.

    And as others have pointed out, the season would likely look a lot different right now had we had a 9-man rotation that included two of our better players. I think we're probably looking at 4 to 6 more wins and in Group 1 heading into the tournament.

    Go back to the Wichita State game. WSU isn't what they've been in past years, but they're still a potential 20-win AAC team that we blew out on the road.

    Well, you could take a look at Baylor -- but it's certainly not the rule.

    So, we’re playing the injury card in basketball too? I haven’t seen many fire Konkol threads.

    No, we aren't playing the injury card in basketball too, but we are looking reality in the face, and recognizing it for what it is.
