Duke Basketball

Duke and UNC Both Coming off Losses

Duke and North Carolina will end their regular season like always. They will be battling each other and there will be plenty at stake. Tip-off is set for 8:15 pm EST and ESPN will have the telecast.

Oddsmakers have the Blue Devils as 8-point favorites, with a few scattered 7.5’s out there. The total is holding at 160.

Either No. 9 North Carolina or  No. 5 Duke will have a two-game losing streak heading to the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament. Tonight’s meeting at Cameron Indoor Stadium will determine who will have the 2nd seed in the upcoming ACC Tournament.

If the Blue Devils lose they would be the 3rd seed. If North Carolina loses they would fall to anywhere between the 4th-6th seed.

This is the first time since 2007 both teams have losses coming into the season finale.

The Blue Devils suffered a 64-63 crippler at Virginia Tech. They lost on a put-back basket with 4.1 seconds left. North Carolina fell the next night at home to Miami. The loss was a thrilling 91-88 game that Miami won on a 3-pointer at the buzzer.

This loss snapped North Carolina’s season-best six-game winning streak.

Duke has Some Milestones Happening Tonight

Tonight is the final game at Cameron Indoor Stadium for Duke senior guard Grayson Allen. The infamous hothead, bully has scored 931 points in the building. Allen has 1,889 points to rank 18th on Duke’s career scoring list.

North Carolina won the first meeting 82-78 against Duke in a Feb. 8 game in Chapel Hill.

This will be Krzyzewski’s 1,300th game as the Blue Devil’s head coach. 88.8 percent of those game (1,154) have been with the Blue Devils in the national rankings.

Duke is 79-56 under Coach K in games with both teams ranked in the top 10. The Blue Devils are 37-11 in such matchups at home.
