Devils earning their dueTaking the name plates off his players' dressing stalls, and pulling photos of the current players off the Duke locker room wall following the Blue Devils' Jan. 6 loss at Florida State, made for interesting reading in North Carolina, I suppose.
Comeback 'CatsThe most eye-popping thing about Oregon's 6-1 start in Pacific-10 Conference play is, without question, its pair of lopsided victories against the University of Arizona. And what's even more impressive about those wins against the Wildcats is that they were able to build and hold onto big leads in both. Because, after all, Arizona has shown very succinctly that it doesn't consider any deficit too big for it to overcome this season. The Wildcats trailed by 21 in Tucson late in the first half of a Pac-10 game with Oregon State in Tucson before pulling it out. But that comeback paled in comparison to the one they slapped on UCLA Saturday. The Bruins built a 73-53 advantage with a little more than 13 minutes to play in the McKale Center before the Wildcats outscored Steve Lavin's lads, 43-13, the rest of the way. Relative to the caliber of opponent, someone is going to have to go a ways to surpass what Arizona did to the Bruins over those final 13 minutes.
