Duke Blue Devils
Since its narrow, two-point win over Virginia three weeks ago, Duke has reeled off five double-digit wins in a row, including the last three by at least 22.
The four freshman, including Tre Jones, all average at least two assists per game, which I find to be most impressive about this Coach K team. Everybody loves to share the ball and just win.
Last time Duke played Virginia, it was without Jones, who leads the nation in assist-to-turnover ratio (better than 5:1). The Blue Devils played more iso-ball and leaned heavily on Zion Williamson and RJ Barrett, who combined for 57 of Duke’s 70 points as a team.
That two-point loss on the road to, at the time, No. 1 Duke remains Virginia’s lone blemish on the season. The Cavaliers had a close call at NC State a week ago but, otherwise, have since breezed through their schedule, as Duke has.
Ty Jerome was named a finalist for the Bob Cousy award for the nation’s top point guard and he deserves it. The junior is averaging 13 points per game with nearly five rebounds and five assists to just over one turnover per game.
But he missed Virginia’s last game on Saturday with a back problem and is questionable for this game. Virginia relies on its half-court sets even more than Duke does so I would argue Jerome is more indispensable to the Cavaliers than Jones is to the Blue Devils, though both are terrific players. Luckily, it’s had a full week off to get him healthy.

Free Duke Blue Devils vs. Virginia Cavaliers NCAAB Prediction: Duke.
Jerome sounds really iffy, though he’s a gamer and will probably play. If he isn’t at full strength, though, Duke will take advantage. I just think this team is ready to take off.
