There’s an epic showdown in the ACC on Saturday afternoon. Virginia goes to Duke in a matchup of #2 vs. #4, which is also right where Virginia and Duke stand in the KenPom rankings.
The Cavaliers have killed the KenPom for the last several seasons, racking up big wins in low-scoring, low-possession games. The metrics love Tony Bennett’s system but he hasn’t had as much success in the NCAAs. He hasn’t been a disappointment, either. The Cavaliers just always tend to get bounced by a good team in a tight game.
A sophomore leads this team in scoring. Kyle Guy is around 15 per game as a Joe Harris-type, sniping threes coming off screens in the blocker-mover offensive scheme. You know what you’re going to get from UVA, though: ball security, discipline, good defense and smart basketball. It’s a winning formula.
Duke Blue Devils
Duke will play a flashier brand of basketball. The Blue Devils started the season with a ton of hype. They haven’t done much to lose that hype but, for whatever reason, it seems like they are, somehow, starting to slip just a little under the radar.
Two weeks ago, Grayson Allen only had two points in a double-digit win over Wake Forest. He did have eight rebounds and 12 assists. He’s scoring less than he did in the outset, which is a great sign for Duke because it means he trusts his teammates more.
Duke’s only two losses this season have been on the road against sleepy opponents (BC, NC State). This one is at home and I trust the Devils will be up for it.

I like Duke. I like Duke at home and I think its a much better team than Virginia, at least in terms of NCAA Championship contention. The Cavs could keep this one close, though.
