We learned a lot about Syracuse and Duke this week. The Orange remained perfect with a thrilling 91-89 overtime victory over the Blue Devils and are looking good to win an ACC title. However, they do have tough road games against Pitt, Virginia and, of course, Duke left on the schedule. Despite the loss, Coach K and company should feel pretty good. Earlier in the week Duke went to Pittsburgh and handled the Panthers with relative ease. For a team that had just one true win on the road heading into the week, many thought this would be the week that Duke would show their inexperience. But instead they proved to be a tough team that could at least compete in a hostile environment against some of the top teams in the country.
