What if Pe Had Played Against Duke?

There are several ways to look at this topic, and the fact that we beat #2 Duke makes the debate far less painful than it might have been otherwise.

We committed 26 turnovers - pretty ugly - and beat the hated Dookies by a duece. Had we been able to keep our turnovers to a still-unacceptable 16, for instance, considering how well we shot - I haven't seen any points per possession numbers - we probably would have blown them away, relatively speaking.

Seth Allen committed eight of those TOs, but also came up clutch down the stretch, with his drives to the hoop, and free throws with less than three seconds left. Had Pe'Shon Howard not been suspended, we may have had fewer TOs, and (possibly) a wider margin of victory. At the same time, though, Seth may not have been as mentally engaged down the stretch.

Had Pe' played, would we have won by a greater margin; or would any improvement in our TO numbers been offset by Pe offering less from a shooting standpoint? Would Seth have been less engaged in the game than he was? Or, has Pe'Shon's presence been a distraction to the team, resulting - in part - to his suspension, and the team's lackluster play against UVA and VT?
