Duke Blue Devils
The Duke Blue Devils had their fans panicking midway through the season. Although they were winning games they were close games, Grayson Allen was really struggling, and Coach K was out after having a back surgery.
But all those fears are gone. Duke comes into this game with a record of 22-5 and sit in second place in the ACC. If they finish the season strong they will be a popular pick to win it all.
They come into this game having won seven games in a row, two of those wins being over North Carolina and Virginia.
The Duke Blue Devils are good on both sides of the but their strength is on the offensive side of the ball.
They average 81.9 points per game which is 23rd in the country.
For Duke to have success in this game they need to score early and often. They need to score early to take the crowd out of it, and score often to really run up the score. If this game is played in the 80’s the Blue Devils should be coming out on top.
It looks like the last couple games are really going to hurt the Syracuse Oranges chance to make the NCAA tournament.
They looked to have a good shot to make the NCAA tournament until they lost three games in a row. To have any chance to make the tournament, they need to beat the Duke Blue Devils on Wednesday night, but even that might not be enough.
The Orange come into this game with a 16-12 record and sit in 7th place in the ACC.
The Orange are led by Senior Guard Andrew White. he is averaging 17.9 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game.
For the Orange to win they need to get off to the fast start. If Duke gets off to the fast start they will put them away early, so the Orange need to avoid that.
