Damn. This cat Zoub just can’t catch a break.
Well, maybe “catch a break” wasn’t the best way to say it, but you know what I mean. I said it before that Duke should go to the small ball express this year because it suits the Duke personnel. At this point, we literally don’t have any other option. Zoubs will probably be back in 6 to 8 weeks, but his fitness may not be back this summer. Remember, we’re talking about a 7-2 guy who is just learning how to get his touches and score the thing on this level.
At any rate, this all but seals Duke’s fake against Balco T and the rest of the Tar Heels.
Duke will fight the good fight, but it’s hard to stop one of the best big men in the country, with solid reserves to boot, with a few 6-8 guys who would rather play on the perimeter anyway.
I guess it’s all up to the curly gangsta, David McClure to try to put that Connecticut thug life on display.
I guess Big Zoub didn’t break it after all. He just aggravated a previous break and will be out 1 to 3 weeks. Good news for the boys in blue.
