  • They're they're not as worried about the game we're playing right now.

  • Perhaps because those comments came on the heels of Duke losing two of its first four games, including a 15 point loss to Illinois at home, the backlash was swift.

  • Do you think if Coach K and lost the 29 conference games at home if he'd still be saying that?

  • Probably not.

  • Look, I just got my bubbe.

  • After our loss to Louisville, I could.

  • I'm just curious as to what the next step forward here is for the team.

  • As you guys move into another week of basketball, why don't we just evaluate this game?

  • I'm not into what our next step forward is right now.

  • What's your heart is?

  • Class?
