    now that most of us are rooting for Kansas tomorrow - what is key to the game?

    Is it as simple as Kansas 3 point shooting must be really on?

    Duke needs to guard the three point line. Kansas needs to keep Duke off the offensive boards.

    Duke needs to get lost on the ride over, and forfeit

    Well let's see here: Dook is the 2nd best (of 351 teams) offensive rebounding team with 487 on the season. We are the 344th in preventing them, allowing 437. I think that qualifies as a key.

    Yeah, KU will be in all kinds of foul trouble early on, look at Syracuse from yesterday - same.

    People in their right mind won't root for Kansas.

    Yep, Duke had 18ft's to Cuse's 2 in 1st half. I went to bed then as I knew Cuse would not be allowed to win.

    Yep

    And even so Cuse pushed puke to the absolute limit

    Kansas has this, too much experience and better guards

    Stay in Trent and Allens face 100% of time. Jack Allens jaw if needed. Root Bagley and Carter off the boards with force and fury. Make them cry if needed. Smack the back of their coaches head for us during handshakes.

    For Duke, stay in Graham, Newman and Mychoziakovocich face 100% of time and it's over.

    Just want to remind Kansas fans that many of us are rooting for you... Many of us DID root for you before 2009.

    It would be nice to receive the favor every once in a while, but I'm sure I'm asking far too much..

    You know, if Kansas takes Duke out.. I'd be sort of OK if they won the title. I'm rooting for Michigan or Villanova, and still will be. But If Kansas wins the title, I'd tip the hat..

    Need Kansas to beat Duke and then Villanova to beat Kansas. After that, don't care what happens.

    Not exactly difficult when you're always a 1 or 2 seed. Kentucky had 3 of 4 Final 4's (2011, 2012 and 2014).. and we did it as a 4-seed, a 1-seed, and an 8-seed...

    Helps that Bagley is allowed to go over the back at will.

    Yep. Because he will dominate the paint and KU has better guards.

    So expect phantom fouls on him every chance

    We'll see that and raise 4 FFs in 5 yrs. Actually, it's 4 straight NCAA appearances, but we have the 2013 NIT in the middle.

    Kansas better make everything and guard the three like crazy.

    Let Bagley get his 30, but don't let Duke go off shooting threes.

    Schwagg is a Kansas state fan. Every post on this board by him is just hating on KU.

    Schwagg can have his moment in the sun since kstate had never beat us and the last time they were relevant was 2010. Btw thanks for wcs. He was going to kstate and changed his mind. Little known fact he played football in highschool like skj did

    I'm a Kansas fan that game and sister Mary all the way. I'd rather see Loyola win than anyone.

    Exactly. Between Kansas and Duke....i will root for Kansas all day every day. At least I can respect their fan base for following their team. They are quite up to UK fan standards but KU fans do try hard.

    Duke might try the Hack a Buike strategy.

    I rarely root against teams, if Kansas loses I pretty much don't care who wins. I used to root hard against Dook but years ago I said "I'm 30 now. Why on earth am I doing this?" So I stopped.

    I normally root for underdogs, so when, say, Gonzaga plays UNC for the title I root for Gonzaga. But I didn't really care much when they lost, didn't affect me.

    We aren’t rooting for Kansas, we are rooting against Duke. There is a distinct difference. The entire country hates duke and is waiting for coach K to choke again with a team that starts 5 players who will be drafted and 4 recruits in the top 10. It will be just like last year. Same song and dance.
