Tuesday college hoops has an ACC showdown in the works between the Boston College Eagles (4-15, 2-11 ACC) and Duke Blue Devils (11-11, 9-9 ACC). This matchup kicks off the ACC tournament for both teams and either side will need to find some magic in winning out in order to make the NCAA tournament.
Duke’s had a disappointing season all year and is now in trouble to officially miss March Madness for the first time in 26 years although they were in line not to make it last year either. The Eagles finished dead last in the conference standings and it would be remarkable if they win a game let alone the whole tournament.
Regardless of their record the Eagles only lost by 1 in Cameron Indoor on January 6th and held an 8 point lead at halftime before allowing a Blue Devil comeback in the second half. CJ Felder led the way for Boston College with 24 points and 4 rebounds meanwhile Wendell Moore produced for Duke with a game high 25 points and 4 rebounds.
Boston College Eagles
Boston College was picked to finish second-to-last in the ACC preseason poll, but it wound up in dead last. The Eagles fired their head coach mid-way through the season and only won two games in conference play.
One of their best games this year came at Duke on Jan. 6, where they dropped an 83-82 final. They picked up their two ACC wins over Miami and Notre Dame. Their regular season concluded with losses to Florida State and Miami.
They are led by sophomore guard Jay Heath, who is scoring 15.1 points and is grabbing 3.0 rebounds. He had 10 points, five rebounds and four assists in the first meeting with Duke. Heath poured in 28 points in a loss to Florida State last week.
Duke Blue Devils
Duke went on a four-game winning streak in mid-February, putting the Blue Devils squarely on the NCAA Tournament bubble. They proceeded to drop consecutive overtime games to Louisville and Georgia Tech before getting blown out by North Carolina on Saturday.
Their NCAA Tournament hopes are now fully reliant on winning the ACC Tournament this week. If the Blue Devils get past Boston College, they would face Louisville on Wednesday night.
1st team All-ACC Sophomore forward Matthew Hurt leads Duke with 18.7 points and 6.2 rebounds per game. Hurt scored 17 points in the first meeting with Boston College along with 11 rebounds for a double double. Freshman guard DJ Steward is second on the team in scoring with 13.0 points per game. He is coming off a 16-point performance at North Carolina on Saturday.

Free Boston College Eagles vs. Duke Blue Devils NCAAB Prediction:
Duke might have finished the regular season with three losses, but it has way too much firepower for Boston College to handle in this game. The Eagles lost one of their leading scorers and had to fire their head coach midway through the season. Duke has one of the most experienced head coaches of all-time and understands that it needs to win the ACC Tournament in order to make the Big Dance. Hurt is going to be the best player on the floor on Tuesday afternoon and he heads up a Duke roster that has a height advantage in this matchup.
