Duke Blue Devils
Not only does Duke have an opportunity to continue their ascent in the national rankings, but they can also create some distance in the conference by knocking down an intense rival. The Blue Devils are currently riding a three-game winning streak and will try to remain undefeated in conference play.
The Blue Devils come in ranked #22 in the latest KenPom rankings and #23 in the current AP Top-25 Polls. Duke has scored 112.8 points per 100 possessions for the season and surrendering 92.9 points per 100 possessions this season.
Duke is going to have to play tight defense and force the Hokies into mistakes to be successful on the road. The Blue Devils are currently ranked 65th in the country in turnovers generated on defense with 15.6 per game. Virginia Tech ranks 36th nationally in offensive efficiency on the court, so the Blue Devils are going to need to generate turnovers to stay in this game.
Matthew Hurt has been incredible for Duke in conference play. The sophomore is averaging 20.33 points per game when facing ACC opponents this season and he will need to have another big night for the Devils if they want their first win over a ranked team this season. D.J. Steward comes in as the only other Blue Devil to average double figures this season with 14.0 points per game.
Duke received some big news on Tuesday that their star freshman Jaylen Johnson may be available for the game in Blacksburg, so keep an eye out for if he is playing or not.
Virginia Tech Hokies
Mike Young has his team currently at 4th in the ACC at 3-1 and has a chance to move up a spot with a victory over the Blue Devils on Tuesday.
Junior Keve Aluma has to hold his own against Hurt. The forward is the Hokies leading scorer with 15.5 points per game, also the Hokies need their reserve unit to continue to come up big. Sixth man Jalen Cone has been a revelation for the team coming off the bench as the second-leading scorer this season with 12.9 points.
Mike Young’s team comes into this game ranked #33 in the latest KenPom rankings. VA Tech has scored 111.7 points per 100 possessions for the year while donning an effective field goal percentage of 45.37%.
On the defensive end of the floor, the Hokies will have to do whatever they can to keep Hurt from wrecking the game. He will be the tallest player on the court for either team as Aluma is the closest in size a 6’9. Virginia Tech surrenders 64.9 points per game which is the 64th best mark in CBB.
