The Blue Devils and Panthers go at it as both teams look to bolster their resumes and continue to push for better seeds in the ACC Tournament.
Duke currently sits just 2.0 games back, but has 4 teams in front of them to deal with.
Pitt isn’t far behind as they sit in 8th place at 8-7 in the conference, but are 19-8 overall.
Duke Blue Devils
Duke has seen the tough string of the season come and gone as they are now in the zone for the drive toward a championship.
After falling out of the Top 25, Duke has rattled off wins in 6 of 7 games and finds themselves at #15 in the nation and 5th in the conference. Duke has certainly picked up the steam at the right time as they were even winning games by playing just 5 guys because of multiple injuries.
Duke got everyone healthy and back as they took on Florida State at home and the Seminoles stood no chance in a 15 point defeat. Duke opened up a 13 point half time lead and never looked back as their starters got some extra rest thanks to everyone being healthy.
This will be the one and only meeting between these two teams in the regular season, but Duke does come in just 5-3 SU in true road games.
Pittsburgh does come in 19-8 on the season, but the question remains is do they have enough to impress the committee?
The Panthers have not played well as of late, losing 4 of their last 6 and they do not have a win over a ranked opponent this season.
This will be their final chance in the regular season to grab one as they finish with Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech, two teams who won’t get them anything impressive on their resume. Pittsburgh has also been average in the conference at just 8-7, which they also have a chance to fall behind Syracuse, and both Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech pending the outcome of their final 3 games.
It’s important for Pittsburgh to certainly knock off the two Tech schools, but a win over Duke could really be that one that pushes this team over the top.

Free Duke Blue Devils vs. Pitt Panthers CBB Prediction:
The Blue Devils are in the zone right now and you can’t even fault them for their loss at Louisville as they held a 12 point lead, but had so many injuries that it caught up with them.
Pittsburgh knows the importance of this game, but they likely won’t have enough to beat Duke here. The Blue Devils are just too strong and quick here, as they grab a road win and continue their surge toward the top of the ACC.
