An opposing coach's view

The big men are multiskilled, but long-range shooting is a question

'Who's going to be happy not being a star? Someone's going to have to do the dirty work....

They might be more athletic inside than in the past, but can they shoot threes as consistently as they have over the last two seasons?...

Chris Duhon is very good with the ball in his hands, but he shot 34% from three-point range last year, and Dahntay Jones shot 23%. They got a lot of good looks, too, because people were keying on Jason Williams and Mike Dunleavy....

Daniel Ewing didn't play a lot of minutes last year, but when he was in, he played well. He could have a great year....

Shelden Williams has the ability to kick your a-inside....

Shavlik Randolph is very skilled for a big man, but can he withstand physical punishment? It's a good year for him to break in because there aren't a lot of older big guys in the ACC.'
