Proctor is recognized for this, but not for this…why? Is he surprised at how calm and collected Jon Scheyer has been throughout this season, especially with it being his first. Was Steve surprised at that, as well? Do we have a sense of how many of these guys are coming back next year?

I say all the time that there are, like, four St. Louis Cardinals fans that I don't hate. Don't hate, don't hate, don't hate.
Steve Wiseman of the News & Observer is one of them. Baseball season's close. It is.
Gotta pick for the World Baseball Classic. It's like half your team and half my team. I know, so I have to go with my team. Wait a second. That's the United States. That's right.
All right, so we're both rooting for the United States. Aeronautics. Goldsmith. Wainwright.
Wainwright, starting game one. DC 50. Uh.
I don't know who can determine that. Yes. I mean, it might be the only pitcher. Well, you know, I shouldn't say that because the Mets starting rotation has Justin Verlander and Max Scherzer.
So between the two of us, we have AARP cards all over the place. Yes. Tell me the difference. I know you covered Duke.
I should have said that at the very beginning. Tell me the difference between this Duke team today and one month ago. So that they're more connected on both ends of the court. They were always a good defensive team. Every once in a while they get a little leaky, let people in the lane, somebody shoot three corners over top of them.
That's gonna happen. Nobody's perfect, right? But they were a strong defensive team from day one. That was their strength and their rebounding.
Yes. But the offense was a mess. They didn't really have a leader, even though Roach was out there. He was a point guard, sometimes, off-guard, other times.
Tyrese Proctor wasn't really ready early in the year. Right. They struggled with turnovers a lot. Think about the Miami and the Virginia games back-to-back.
Mm. 20-plus turnovers, right? And they still should have won the Virginia game. And they still should have won the Virginia game. And they still should have won the Virginia game.
Yeah, that's a whole other thing. But Tyrese Proctor, while Roach was out in January, became more of the trusted ball-handler. He benefitted by Roach not being there. I think he was kind of in his shadow, naturally. right junior captain all that stuff only return starter he found his footing uh... in the college came up to come in from australia right so those holes just the two so that's been a big difference right arm and so that they're they're movable better off into collecting more since they had or in the year that's the biggest thing i've watched them though and i still see a team that is kind of a mess offensively sure a lot of it because they don't have a consistently good shooter correct whether i mean roach i think is their most capable philip ascii can but he's not shooting a high percentage proctors getting better uh... but that to me is what the the real thing that they're missing somebody here create the space on the floor and that's why likely to get into the next term about this one their just like to go out the first weekend and they are to get you know passes that i mean you know uh... they'll have a they'll have a trusted shooter right leader roach has become more of a driver like he's some of the city and the nc state in a particular he was that way all the time to get a shot sir like he did last march right they can also have a game i think against carolina the issue very well from three and uh... yeah right about so it's not pleasing to the either right and that is a phrase i've used a lot of therapy they're greedy not pretty they but it's true yes i thought that the end i was here it's hard to trust them when you get into a term a situation because you can have one horrible shooting day and you're done and that's that that's always in the back of that's always there yeah that's that's the thing about it is that they also play slow that there's limited possessions i actually joked about it sort of with john shire earlier in the year i said you know this is the same reason ice i spank virginia on the radio time because just no positions in the game uh... i don't think he wants to play like this although the team that won the title with that he was the point guard of in twenty ten they were a slower team they were more of a plotting team i don't think that's his preference but this is what they have to do right now that's right it's what they have and he he realized that we talked and this week about it that uh... he looked at the rostry had he said were really tall mall we can play defense specially the half court this fight is to do to fifty that doesn't force a lot of turnovers get a lot of transition points right again slower pace house to twenty ten right normally duke is a team that gets out runs and and and and live all turnovers yeah that's not that that's why the stories down also is in the middle of that but it is said of the lively phil pass here to seven for his my story lineup about mark mitchell who's it was a long six a guy with a long wingspan you can get the passing lanes uh... are involved defenders like proctor and roach approaches developed his ears go on there but you know that's what he cited this is what i have baker defense first in a rebounding what will figure out the offense with were you surprised proctor made all freshmen but he didn't make all defense and they're made look i don't watch every team in the league all the time but proctor is as good on the ball as anybody in the league that i i think shut down to quit the incident on tuesday caleb love out of the game again which i admit sometimes caleb love does that on his own but i don't think it was that was the case on saturday night and i don't know that he's getting the credit he deserves as a defender right in the game before that he shut down her to write absolute who had just tortured two times the upright left two times uh... so again he developed as the year went on and if the if people think back to that first nc state game with the state torch duke yeah that that's what all tires proctor and with all these ports of it you know he gave up like i think so i think i'll get stated kinda like overarching picture of the conference he played poorly in our conference play they get baked in and people think that's where it is all year long that's what i have a tire reason he was kind of under under-appreciated right mark michaels kind of appreciate is a defender to be somebody that shire is comfortable switching one through five i got it if they do in that uh... but you know i thought yes about it this is kind of point of you know lively the big shot blocker in the middle uh... and everybody else you know it's kind of fills in there are the roles the practice really developed well and that he supported two more quick things for steve was one of the news observer covers the blue devils uh... the first is john shire's development this year has as he surprised you with how calm he has stayed even with some situations that called for a rant or a tantrum right i'm not talking about road chair like bobby knight but honestly i don't understand how your column after the virginia decision i'd just i can't uh... and the virginia tech maybe what's the monitor and saw uh... completely inadvertent but it was a punch to the throat and you have to call right it's it's it's you know the option yet they decided whatever when you start hearing those sounds you know spring is coming with the home depot's countdown to spring now is the

were he picked up zero technical files next up all of his first ones that have made it that's him he he wanted to be himself right he's not k mister i'm not i think you know i i i think that i'm sure he has four-letter words though absolutely jerry is that i will say since the virginia game i've noticed of a difference okay and i think that he said then activities i trust of the officials i do what they're doing internet right right they stay screwed up and so the next day and they played little i think and there was a recovery play at the end of the game with the time and he was over the look over their shoulder what do you have to over here like i i i don't trust you anymore and so it's been a little more animated since then but i know not to what we've seen an assistant people get used to the difference in will see if he is more comfortable in what he's doing here goes on as career goes on feels like he's more entitled to be able to act that way final thing as i can't i get asked this question all along all all all year long we have a sense that how many of these kids are coming back for another year because i look at mock drafts and whatnot i don't see all of these guys whitehead is going to go because why everybody knows the town philip ascii seven feet spot super athlete at this point do we have a sense of who we think is going to come back is jeremy gonna come back for another year uh... i think we can tell lively and whitehead going right that's been the case from day one philip ascii's played his way into a tough decision in fact content for my stories of the stories dropping right now had a one-on-one with him couple of them recovery of the what is decision-making process is going to be all excellent is not made this and obviously right but he would have not some insight look on the news observer website saying that i have yeah yeah so he's got a decision to make and a half but he loves duke seriously anyway he's not quite the athlete they want these other point three-point shooter they want correct some you'll take in the first round probably late yeah anyway uh... proctors one i think he's probably coming back but he's because he's a euro behind where should be so wrote i'm not sure about and i think he wants to finish out but they got so much talk about in the back court next year that's the problem well you can play three guards you can and he could be a quick look on a believing char would love it absolutely love he would love to have a keels come back this year yes i think ever killed in hindsight why is it going to be a star for the west as the next day and they wouldn't want to be uh... uh... i don't know the other was just an explain as well as the new york nix another lost the uh... to the heartless that's the look charlotte's giant killers uh... steve wyman from the news and observer check out the story that is it is there was website absolute whatever i just said it i'd made up a word uh... thank you much
