This decision clearly comes down to whether or not you're a fan of Duke basketball:
Fan -> NYU.
Hate -> Duke.
Reason being: with McRoberts gone + the general disarray of the team, Duke will be absolutely miserable. This will either be painful to watch or the greatest 3 years of your life.
I disagree. Duke recruited some of the best prospects in the nation. They recruited Kyle Singler (5th ranked player in the nation), Taylor King, and Nolan Smith (who led the point for Oak Hill, best basketball program in the nation). Plus, they still have Scheyer, Paulaus, Nelson, Henderson, and, of course, Coach K. They are actually due for a big turn around, considering last year's disappointment.
Also, McRoberts is a bum. He'll be drafted late 2nd round or not at all.
UNC lost Brendan Wright and UVA lost two of their best guards. So, the ACC shouldn't be as tough this year
NYU has a basketball team? I thought the Dean's Cup and the Knicks were the only source for bball entertainment. (same for Columbia)
