    I run down Duke's impressive responses to adversity this season, express my lineup abandonment issues against Virginia, and finish up with a bemusement/amusement combo regarding the general response to Duke's zone success vs NC State. Plus there's ACC Tourney seeding scenarios, because nothing gets me amped more than seeding scenarios.
    Also, I'M CALMER THAN YOU ARE ABOUT FACING A 13-17 TEAM WHICH POSES NO THREAT AT ALL TO DUKE NOPE NONE WHATSOEVER.

    I do my best to make sure each DBC episode contains far and away the best Duke MBB analysis you'll find anywhere. I'd love to cover the team full-time, but the only way that happens is if I receive help spreading the word. It's a supply and demand business, and if better coverage isn't demanded and then consistently supported and promoted, nothing will improve. Please rate AND leave reviews. If you've previously left a review, leave another. I pour my heart and soul (and infinite amounts of time) into the DBC pod. If you enjoy, why not take 30 seconds to help me out? By doing so, you'll also be helping other Duke fans receive the best team coverage in the country. Thanks!

    The blown lead sucked, but my concerns about Duke's loss to Wake Forest go well beyond a late-game collapse.
    -95:23- fin
    *I made a point about Duke's struggle against the Wake zone, and want to be clear that point was related to the first half (scored on just 5 of 23 zone possessions ) and not the second half (scored on 7 of 13 possessions before Wake stopped zoning) or overtimes (no zone). Overall, in the halfcourt, WF played zone on 23 of 35 possessions in the first half, 13 of 34 second half possessions, and 0 of 7 overtime possessions. I want to make that clear in case it sounds like my point comes across as Duke struggling against the WF zone for all 50 minutes.

    Contrary to what the internet would have you believe, actual basketball things occured during Duke-NC State beyond mindless groupthink cliches, and I'm still having trouble wrapping my head around one vital aspect as the game.

    Time for a DBC Deep Dive to cover all aspects of a truly epic Duke-UNC game. As Jay Bilas said during the game, it always delivers, and he was right on a higher plane for what we were fortunate enough to witness on Debruary 8, 2020. Every aspect of the game gets deserved attention, so basically it's exactly what makes a DBC Deep Dive great. I'm joined on the episode by Andrew Clark.

Scoppa family ,

Great team

Every episode with both Adam and Ray is easily the most natural conversation, with the deepest analysis of Duke Basketball players and games around.

LouisiAaron ,

5 stars

Easily the best basketball podcast ever on Apple. Tackles analytics and the actual eye tests. Others seem to not be able to do both

Brooks at 3rd ,

Great analytics, equal passion

If you care, REALLY care about basketball beyond personalities and fan gossip, and Duke is a north pole to your south, you'll want to listen regularly here. It's analytics with a heart, from a close observer of
Duke basketball for decades whose insights are much more than tossed-off opinions.
