In a day filled with powerhouse match ups across the board, this might be the best one of them all.
Duke and Florida travel North to Madison Square Garden to match up in a top 25 match up.
This is the first time the two teams have played since 2000 when the Gators beat the Blue Devils 87-78
The Gators have looked impressive so far this season, but have not had many tests yet.
They have played a pretty weak schedule so far besides Gonzaga and Miami. They lost to Gonzaga 77-72, and beat Miami 65-56.
Every game it seems a different player steps up for the Gators. They have four players who average more then 9 points with KeVaughn Allen leading that charge. Allen is averaging 12.4 points, 2.5 rebounds, and 1.4 assists a game.
On the offensive side of the ball the Gators play a fast tempo. They average 77 points and shoot 44 percent from th field. From behind the arc they shoot a low 31.5 percent.
On the defensive end as one might expect for a team that plays a fast pace they give up a lot of points. Opponents are averaging 63.6 points per game and shoot 40.5 percent from the field.
For the Gators to win this game they are going to need their starters to step up, and for one of them to have a huge game.
Duke Blue Devils
Duke is finally getting healthy and even without their stars they have still looked dominant early on.
Freshman Marcques Bolden and Jayson Tatum both returned in Saturday’s win over Maine. It also sounds like Harry Giles will be back soon, so although they will all need to blend in on the team, this Duke team is only going to get better as the season goes on.
Duke’s only loss so far this year has come to Kansas. They have looked dominant in all the other games including a big win over Michigan State.
Duke has won four of their last six games at Madison Square Garden. One of those loses did come last year against the Jayhawks.
