Now we really have to get the Duke game and the Miami game. We've been in this situation plenty of times, so we're used to it. But this year we've got to get it done. We've come too far as a team and as a staff to let this season slip away like this.

I was pleased overall with the first 35 minutes of the game and holding Duke to 20 points for [the first] half. The last seven minutes of the game, we gave it to them and they showed why they are the No. 2 team in the nation.

If it's 1 vs. 2 or 21 vs. 22, with the Maryland-Duke game for the last 16 years, all that other stuff is meaningless. It's a very, very competitive game.

This thing at Duke isn't going to wake up anything. You'd like to think that it would. You'd like to think this is one of those things that you talk to your kids about at home, that it's a teaching moment. But here's what people want to know about it - that it didn't happen, or that it didn't happen as it was first reported. And that's the unfortunate part - because something wrong happened there.

It looked like the Zach Duke we saw a lot of around the National League last year. That's a very good sign, especially when you start to get short on time in preparing for the regular season. Zach is starting to spearhead his way toward doing the things you want to see a pitcher do at this time of the spring.

We picked up at the start of the second half the way we finished the first. The Duke game was a tough loss. We know we could have won that game. All we could do was watch the tape of it and learn our lesson, not make the same mistakes again and that's what we did against Wake Forest.

My thing with Duke is they are a high percentage team, so I'm real pleased with the fact that we held them to 41 percent shooting. But J.J. is a great player and when the game is on the line your players have to make plays. He knew he was going to try to make a play and he did.
