Virginia is a perfect 16–0 and set to become No. 1 in the AP Poll, if it defeats Duke in this game. It’s already No. 1 in the Coach’s Poll and Duke is No. 2, at least for now; the Blue Devils may drop next week following their loss to Syracuse.
The Cavs haven’t even had many close calls yet this season. Their smallest victory was by five at Maryland, which isn’t even that small considering how UVA plays. They’re like a python, squeezing the life out of opposing teams with defense and deliberate offense.
All four of UVA’s ACC wins have come by at least 14 points. Most recently, they defeated Virginia Tech by 22 at John Paul Jones Arena. They’ve got road wins at BC and Clemson, too.
Four guys, all in the top 75 of the 2016 freshman class, lead the way for UVA. Kyle Guy, DeAndre Hunter, Ty Jerome and Braxton Key all do something a little different, while playing great team ball together. They are the core of a team on the ultimate redemption trail after the way last season ended.
Duke Blue Devils
No defense has allowed fewer assists than the 125 Virginia has given up (fewer than eight per game). Duke has decent assist numbers but it’s still more of an isolation offense that gets its assists off of quick-hitters.
Spreading Virginia out and putting their defenders on an island against elite physicality and talent will be Duke’s best chance to win this game. Cam Reddish should be back after an illness caused him to miss the game against Syracuse but Tre Jones won’t play after suffering a shoulder injury.
That’s going to make things interesting. What we basically have here is an elite opponent, in terms of organization, coaching and team synergy, going up against the gold standard of talent in the country, minus its starting point guard.
Reddish, Zion Williamson and RJ Barrett are going to have to wing this one and win it by taking turns making plays. It would help if Virginia didn’t shoot well from outside and Duke could take some of those opportunities to get out in transition.

Free Virginia Cavaliers vs. Duke Blue Devils NCAAB Prediction: Virginia.
The Cavaliers are your new No. 1 after this game. I think the Jones loss will be too much to overcome for Duke, which will rely too much on individual talent to beat a great team like Virginia.
