Blue Devils open NCAA play against Virginia Commonwealth

Story body

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -- Duke and national championship have rarely come up in the same sentence this postseason. Instead of being a favorite to reach the Final Four, there's talk of an early exit in the NCAA tournament.

The Blue Devils are a sixth seed heading into the West Regional, where they'll face 11th seed Virginia Commonwealth tomorrow evening in Buffalo. It is Duke's lowest seeding since they went into the NCAA tournament as the eight-seeded team in 1996.

It will be Duke's first game since North Carolina State bounced them from the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament in the opening round.

Virginia Commonwealth won the Colonial Athletic Association title, beating last year's NCAA darling George Mason.

BA Walker leads the Rams at almost 15 points per game, and his 264 career 3-pointers are the most in school history.

Fans should keep an eye on the scoreboard as well. VCU is 21-1 when scoring at least 70 points.

What interests us pr

What interests us primarily in this is the question whether quantum mechanics has, as has often been said, given up the perceptibility of the description of nature, and the causal principle.

No strings here

We are not talking string theory, quantum mechanics or even relativity. Duke simply sucks and that is that. They cannot put the balls through the hoops and maintain the defense to do the job. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure how this is going to turn out.

einstein we aint

Perhaps, but String Theory allows for relativity to enter into the perceptual equation. And Duke is still, according to the laws of nature, still behind UNC.

I have a question....

Uh, what?


Quantum mechanics doesn't directly address physical contact sports, too many variables. Love plays a part and fan voices and home field advantage. Statics is an old science, and you have to be precise, you have no clue. No, we have not percepted the nature of atoms to figure out what we can expect from the neutrons we encounter. Computer mechanix has not advanced that far, not what I will admitt the millitary can do anyway.
