Duke and Butler will meet again on the hardwood next season, eight months after their classic performance in the national championship game.

The two schools will play December 4 in a highly anticipated, much-publicized regular-season game at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The Blue Devils won their fourth NCAA Title in Indianapolis on April 5 by beating the fan favorite Bulldogs 61-59. as Gordon Hayward’s potential game-winning 3-point shot from halfcourt bounced off the rim.

The Blue Devils have a long, successful history at the arena, going 18-1 and winning five NCAA regional finals there. Butler has never played at the Meadowlands, former home of the New Jersey Nets of the NBA.

Both teams will start the season amongst the favorites to return to the national championship game. The Blue Devils return star players Kyle Singler and Nolan Smith.

Gordon Hayward declared early for the NBA draft but has not signed with a agent and could region Shelvin Mack, Matt Howard and Ronald Nored in the Butler Bulldogs lineup.

Big first quarter fuels Cavaliers in romp over Nets, 111-92

With the Cleveland Cavaliers rolling up a 35-15 first quarter lead Wednesday night against the New Jersey Nets, the fans were thinking any chance they had in the game was disappearing rather quickly. Well their thoughts were right. Cleveland coasted to a 111-92 victory in East Rutherford, N.J.  at the IZOD Center. Cleveland is now 48-14.

The Cavaliers, using their small, quick lineup were so dominating in the first quarter, they shot out to a 20 point lead in ‘no time flat’.

Cavs star LeBron James, had 26 points and 14 rebounds. J.J. Hickson scored 20 points and pulled down 14 rebounds.

Brook Lopez, had 21 points and 14 rebounds for the Nets who creeped back in the game and trailed by 11 points in the fourth quarter but could’nt get any closer.

This was the  Cavs last visit to the Meadowlands complex. New Jersey will soon break ground on their new arena in Brooklyn. In the meantime, they’ll play in the Prudential Center in Newark until the new arena is ready.

As usual LeBron James was approached by reporters from the New York/New Jersey area about him possibly playing for the Nets or the Knicks. As usual, he said nothing about his plans for free agency.
