Return to the Scheyer. Duke's hobbit-like swingman potted 16 points in the first half and 21 in the game, as No. 7 Duke rolled over Florida State 70-57. OK, Scheyer's skinny frame and crazy facial expressions probably make the whole Lord of the Rings comp a bit of a stretch. But we'll use any excuse to link to cheesecake shots of Rosie Cotton. As for Scheyer, he's emerged as one of the best sixth men/M.O.T.s in the country, after starting last year as a freshman. He's also the author of a famous high school performance, in which he scored 21 points in a span of 75 seconds. Plus Scheyer's creative shot-making last night was almost enough to make you forget about the horrendous charging fouls called on FSU in the first half, the flops by Nolan Smith and Taylor King being the most egregious since...the last time Duke played. (Ed. Note: More on this later today.)
