The Duke Blue Devils will travel to Miami to take on the Hurricanes to try to keep their hopes alive of making the NCAA tournament.

Miami on the other hand will try to play spoiler as their hopes of a tournament berth are most likely long gone.
Duke Blue Devils
Duke opened ACC play with a 3-0 record, but it lost its next three games to Virginia Tech, Pittsburgh and Louisville. The Blue Devils bounced back with wins over Georgia Tech and Clemson. KenPom still has the Blue Devils as a top 25 team after taking down Clemson this past weekend.
Matthew Hurt leads Duke with 18.7 points and 7.8 rebounds per game. He is hitting an efficient 53.8 percent of his attempts. Hurt is also drilling 44.4 percent of his attempts from beyond the arc.

Jim Larranaga’s squad has struggled with injuries and blowing leads all season. The Hurricanes have missed two of their starting guards for much of the year. They have now lost their last four games, falling to Syracuse, Notre Dame, Florida State, and Wake Forest.
