Last night, #11 Pittsburgh beat #6 Duke in overtime at Madison Square Garden.
Duke struggled with quick Pitt guard Levance Fields and with Pitt's bulky front line. Excluding DeMarcus Nelson and Gerald Henderson, Duke doesn't exactly have the most athletic team. And their big men are tall, but slight.
This may sound trite, but Duke really needs to get stronger and more athletic. Basketball keeps becoming a more physical game. Duke has no shortage of talent, but they're falling behind in terms of the overall physicality of their team.
