The Bulldogs advance to the second round of the Tournament thanks to a win over Baylor. I know it might not be a shock because the Bears can be wildly inconsistent but I didn’t see it coming.
Now they get Duke and believe it or not this might be a better matchup because this year’s version of the Blue Devils just doesn’t have that kind of inside presence they usually do and Baylor does. Hard to think about.
If they want to keep winning than Makai Mason has to keep playing like he did against Baylor when he scored 31 points. It was a season high but he is averaging 16ppg so it is not completely out of nowhere.
Leading scorer Justin Sears was good with 19 points. He is going to have to figure out how to stay a scorer and defend the Blue Devil’s most versatile player Brandon Ingram.
Duke Blue Devils
Duke advanced but they really should not have been pushed as hard by UNCW. They were actually losing at halftime.
This year’s team is certainly not the juggernaut they were a year ago but they do have some excellent talent in Grayson Allen and Ingram. They combined for 43 points in the opening round win.
The big surprise was that Marshall Plumlee was a scoring factor. He scored 23 points and if he actually gives the Blue Devils an inside presence their ceiling just got a lot higher.
Duke is a brand name so it is often hard to find value with them. These teams faced off back in December and Duke won by 19. Both teams should be a lot better now than they were then.

Free Yale Bulldogs vs. Duke Blue Devils CBB Prediction:
There is going to be no doubting who the crowd will be rooting for in this one. They always root against the Blue Devils and in Ivy darling Yale they have an even better excuse to do so.
Harvard was a threat in the tournament the last couple of season but by comparison I think they are better than this Yale team. One win is pretty impressive though.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Duke -6
Bringing down a Duke takes a team that is ready for the moment because there are those times you get close and have to keep pushing. I haven’t seen much of Yale so it is hard to say they are there.
If this is a battle of perimeter player than the Blue Devils definitely have much more to go to war with. they are not lacking the talent to advance.
