This guy is really laying it on coach K like some have done to Cal in the past. I tend to agree with him.

"""Somehow, Duke still couldn’t make the Final Four even with Williamson. Michigan State shocked the world in the Elite Eight, ending the career of the greatest college player in recent memory (and maybe ever) one step before the sport’s biggest stage.

This is how Krzyzewski blew his chance with Williamson.

Duke didn’t recruit enough shooting
It’s pretty incredible to think Krzyzewski can essentially recruit any player he wants, yet he still didn’t recruit any outside shooters.

Duke was one of the worst three-point shooting teams in the country all year. The Blue Devils made 30.8 percent of their threes as a team on the season, which ranked No. 327 out of 351 DI teams. Duke only took 26.5 percent of their field goals from three-point range, which ranked No. 310 in DI."""

This year's Dook team didn't have that typical Grayson Allen-type player. Instead, K went after the best of the best. Well, that doesn't appear to work at Dook just like it doesn't work at Kentucky. Let's see if Coach K goes back to his old style of recruiting.

Agree, College basketball is just becoming a 3 pt shooting contest. If you don't have good shooters you will lose. Too many mid-major teams and others can shoot the three very good.

Coach K blew it because he didn't even get Zion a single shot for 5 of the last 6 minutes of the game. How do you let that happen as a coach. The guys had 24 points and 14 rebounds and the coach doesn't get him but 1 shot in the last 6 minutes of the game. That's unbelievable to me. Even in the VT and UCF game Zion was floating around outside. I just don't understand that when he is almost unstoppable on the inside.

As posted in another thread - guards guards and more guards needed especially in the tourney!!

We didn't have them Duke didn't have them and both teams struggled prior to their defeat in the elite 8..

I'll still be happy with a few super star big men.
