Stop me if you have heard this before. Number 1 vs. Number 2 on a "neutral" court. The match up has been anticipated since before the season began. Two undefeated and tested teams. Two teams who have survived early season scares to remain at the top of all the polls. Two squads led by National Player of the Year candidates and guided by two respected and experienced coaches. One coach sporting multiple national championship rings and the other still searching for his first.
I am not talking about Texas vs. USC but I could be. No, the hype machine is running full steam ahead for a different Texas game. Duke vs. Texas play in the Meadowlands this Saturday at 12:30 Central. The game will be televised nationally by CBS. There are no college football games this Saturday, so there is no reason not to tune in.
This one is going to be special. Coach K and Coach Barnes. Daniel Gibson and Lamarcus Aldridge vs. JJ Redick and Shelden Williams. Not even Dickie V can throw out enough superlatives for my excitement. Super. Scintillating. Sensational.
A full preview coming tomorrow.
