North Carolina at Duke
By Brad Young

The biggest rivalry in college basketball tips off at Cameron Indoor Stadium Wednesday night when third-ranked North Carolina visits sixth-ranked Duke. The Tar Heels and Blue Devils are currently tied atop the Atlantic Coast Conference standings with 7-2 records. Both schools are also chasing high seeds in the upcoming NCAA Tournament, with North Carolina currently projected as a top seed with Duke listed as a second seed according to various internet sites.

Las Vegas Sports Consultants installed North Carolina as a slight two-point road favorite over Duke, with the total listed at 155. ESPN will provide coverage of this ACC contest beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET.

North Carolina (21-2 straight up, 9-11 against the spread) enters this matchup riding a seven-game SU winning streak. The Tar Heels continued their winning ways after cruising past Virginia Saturday as a decided 25-point home favorite, 76-61. North Carolina is just 1-3 ATS its previous four games.

The Tar Heels dominated the Cavaliers on the boards, 42-29, while shooting 42 percent (28-of-67) from the field. Four starters reached double digits in scoring, led by Wayne Ellington’s 20 points and six rebounds while Tyler Hansbrough added 15 and 13. The bench only provided eight points over a combined 45 minutes.

North Carolina maintains a 10-1 SU and 6-4 ATS road record, winning those affairs by an average score of 92-71. The Tar Heels follow this contest with a road game against the Miami Hurricanes.

Duke (20-3 SU, 12-10 ATS) has alternated SU wins and losses its last five games after slipping past Miami (Fla.) Saturday in overtime as a 14-point home ‘chalk,’ 78-75. The Blue Devils are also just 1-3 ATS their last four outings.

Duke had to dig itself out of a 32-19 halftime deficit, and finished the contest by winning the rebounding battle, 39-35. The Blue Devils prevailed despite shooting just 33 percent (25-of-76) from the field, and 31 percent (12-of-39) from behind the arc. Guard Jon Scheyer paced the offense with 22 points, while Kyle Singler added 17 and 10 rebounds. The bench produced just two points over a combined 49 minutes.

Duke is 15-0 SU and 8-6 ATS on its home court, winning those matchups by an average score of 83-59. The Blue Devils follow this outing with a two-game road trip against Boston College and St. John’s.

North Carolina is 3-1 SU and ATS the previous four meetings with Duke, but this is the first encounter this season. The Tar Heels won their last trek to Cameron Indoor Stadium last March as a one-point road underdog, 76-68. These two teams will meet again in the regular season finale March 8 at North Carolina’s Dean E. Smith Center.

Neither team is reporting any players as ‘probable,’ ‘questionable’ or ‘doubtful’ for this contest.

Game of the day: North Carolina at Duke
By MATT SEVERANCE

North Carolina Tar Heels at Duke Blue Devils (+1.5)

What's at stake:
First place in the ACC, potential NCAA Tournament seeding ramifications and Tobacco Road bragging rights until the rematch on March 8.

Series history: The Heels lead it 128-97, and no current Duke senior has beaten North Carolina at Cameron Indoor Stadium - UNC has won three in a row in Durham. Last year Duke was able to win in Chapel Hill in early February with the Heels down injured point guard Ty Lawson, but Duke fell at home a month later. Carolina, which has won four of the past five meetings overall, hasn't won four straight road games in this series since 1982-85.

"I don't even bring it up," Coach Mike Krzyzewski said of the losing streak to the Winston-Salem Journal. "Kids can't identify with history. They're too young. But they can identify with ‘now.' We've got to talk to them about ‘right now.' “

Since Krzyzewski took over at Duke, only three opposing players — UNC’s Buzz Peterson and Wake Forest’s Tim Duncan and Rusty LaRue — have played at Cameron Indoor Stadium four different times and left with four victories. Tyler Hansbrough and Danny Green can add their names to that list Wednesday night.

Duke lineup update: Senior point guard Greg Paulus will make his second straight start Wednesday night, according to Krzyzewski. Sophomore Nolan Smith, who started 21 of the first 22 games, will come off the bench again.

In the wake of that disaster against Clemson early last week, Paulus was inserted back into the starting lineup Saturday and responded with 18 points in an overtime win against Miami. Paulus, who was averaging less than six points and 20 minutes per game this season, logged 40 minutes in the victory, including all five in overtime.

Coach K praised his leadership, and Paulus is a better perimeter threat than Smith. Krzyzewski said Smith still will have a prominent role even though he was scoreless in seven minutes against the Hurricanes.

Another key in that Miami game was guard Jon Scheyer scoring a team-high 22 points after averaging just 9.5 points over the previous eight games. The Blue Devils are 5-0 this season when Scheyer scores 20 or more.

Forward Kyle Singler is struggling hitting just 5-of-23 from the field on Saturday. The sophomore, who leads the team in scoring and rebounding, totaled just 11 points in Duke's previous two games before Saturday. Singler did have an illness that caused him to miss some practice time nearly two weeks ago, but Coach K says Singler's health is fine.

Gerald Henderson has shared or led the Blue Devils in scoring in seven of the last nine contests and is averaging 17.7 points over his last 15 games.

Duke has not shot 50 percent from the field against North Carolina since March 15, 2003.

Heels on a roll: North Carolina has won seven games in a row and the surge is mainly due to junior Wayne Ellington. He averaged 27 points in the UNC's two wins last week and has scored at least 20 points four times during the winning streak. Only one of those seven wins has been by less than 15 points.

Green is averaging 16.8 points while going 14 of 28 from behind the 3-point arc in the past four games, while Lawson has 15 assists and no turnovers in the past two. All five Carolina starters average double figures in points.  UNC leads the ACC in offense while Duke has the conference's best scoring defense.

The difference Wednesday probably will be Hansbrough (70 points the past three games), because Duke has no inside presence - the Blue Devils attempted a school-record 39 three-pointers Saturday against Miami. Of course, if Duke is hot from behind the arc, it can beat anyone.

UNC freshman center Tyler Zeller, who suffered a broken wrist in a Nov. 18 victory against Kentucky, won't be returning this week or any time soon, according to Heels coach Roy Williams said. He said the 7-foot-1 Zeller has returned to practice but needs a good 10 days to two weeks to be near ready to play.

Tale of the tape: Tar Heels-Blue Devils break down
By DAVE CAREY

Basketball’s premier rivalry finally takes center stage on Wednesday night. Two teams separated by just a handful of miles on Tobacco Road are stocked full of McDonald’s All-Americans and pro prospects — and even better yet, they hate each other. Before we find out which shade of blue is best, take a look at how two of the top teams in the country compare.

GUARDS

Duke:
Senior Greg Paulus (6.1 ppg, 1.6 apg) has emerged as a catalyst on offense for the Blue Devils. This isn’t a good thing, since he couldn’t guard my 85-year-old Nana. Jon Scheyer (13 ppg, 3.8 rpg) is one of the team’s best perimeter scorers, but not as athletic as any of North Carolina’s guards.

UNC: Ty Lawson (15.3 ppg, 6.6 apg) powers the Tar Heels as he is seventh in the country in assists per game and Wayne Ellington (15 ppg, 4.5 rpg, 2.7 apg) is an athletic complement to his fluid play. After this duo, however, the backcourt gets very thin.

Edge: UNC

FORWARDS

Duke:
Kyle Singler (15.8 ppg, 8.2 rpg) is the team’s leading scorer and most consistent player. Gerald Henderson (15.2 ppg, 5 rpg), however, is the Blue Devil’s most dynamic player and easily their most complete.

UNC: Danny Green went from being one of the best sixth men in the country last season to one of the best wing defenders this year. Green (13.5 ppg, 4.5 rpg) averages 1.9 steals and 1.6 blocks per game and is a great complement to national player of the year candidate Tyler Hansbrough (22.1 ppg, 7.8 rpg).

Edge: UNC

BENCH

Duke:
Even with Paulus switching spots with guard Nolan Smith (9.5 ppg, 1.7 apg), the Blue Devil’s reserves aren’t great. Forwards David McClure (2.1 ppg, 4 rpg) and center Brian Zoubek (5.6 ppg, 4.4 rpg) are very soft.

UNC: The Tar Heels lost Tyler Zeller and Marcus Ginyard for the year due to injuries and Will Graves has been suspended for the rest of the season. After the team’s top reserves — Bobby Frasor (2.4 ppg, 1.3 rpg) and Ed Davis (6.7 ppg, 7.4 rpg) — it slim pickings.

Edge: UNC

COACHING

Duke:
Mike Krzyzewski has done a great job with this year’s team by masking their decencies with superb team play. The Blue Devils are struggling to find an offensive identity as conference play winds down and have just made a change at point guard — all bad signs for a team expected to contend for a national title. If the gamble works, he’s even more of a genius, but if it backfires, this team squanders a chance to contend in a wide-open season.

UNC: Roy Williams has the Tar Heels playing their best since the beginning of the season. A win over Duke not only establishes UNC as the top team in the Atlantic Coast Conference, it reaffirms its position as the main title contender. Williams will be forced to juggle a short bench, and the team’s success depends on it.

Edge: Duke

OFFENSE

Duke:
The Blue Devils are 30th in the country, averaging 78.2 points per game, but have surpassed that mark just twice in the past nine games. The team also ranks just 114th in FG percentage (44.9), but 41st in three-point FG percentage (40). If Duke can’t hit threes, it struggles to score.

UNC: The Tar Heels have arguably the best offense in America, averaging 92.3 points per game. And they are efficient in their attack — first in the country with 19.7 assists per game. UNC is a fantastic shooting team, making 48.8 percent of its shots from the floor and 38.8 percent from beyond the arc, both in the top 25 nationally.

Edge: UNC

DEFENSE

Duke:
This unit has been a consistent strength for the team as it is allowing just 61 points per game, 35th-best nationally. Opponents also are shooting a meager 31 percent from beyond the arc and Duke is 24th in the country in rebounding margin at plus-6.1.

UNC: The Tar Heels lone weakness. The team gets so fixated scoring points, it is yielding 71.2 per game, 253rd nationally. UNC, however, is 13th in blocks per game (6) and 23rd in steals (8.9), nationally. The Tar Heels also are a great rebounding team, ranked 10th in the country with a margin of plus-7.5.

Edge: Duke

CLUTCH/INTANGIBLES

Duke:
The Blue Devils have struggled recently against North Carolina, but have experience in closes games this season. Duke is 4-2 in games decided by nine points or less and have put many opponents away late in games to turn close contests into routs.

UNC: The Tar Heels aren’t intimidated by Cameron Indoor Stadium — their seniors, Green and Hansbrough, are trying to go 4-0 there. UNC has rallied since loses to Boston College and Wake Forest to win seven in a row, but are just 1-2 in games decided by seven or fewer points.

Edge: Duke

VERDICT: UNC 4, Duke 3

The Tar Heels have too much athleticism. Duke slows down the talented team from down the road at first, but can’t execute on offense down the stretch, losing 74-62.

(3) North Carolina (21-2, 9-12 ATS) at (6) Duke (20-3, 11-10-1 ATS)

Another chapter in the most intense rivalry in college basketball will be written tonight when North Carolina makes the eight-mile trek down Tobacco Road to Cameron Indoor Stadium for the first of two regular-season meetings with Duke, with first place in the ACC on the line.

The Tar Heels have ripped off seven straight victories, all in ACC play, including Saturday’s 76-61 home win over Virginia, though they came up short as a hefty 24-point home chalk. It was the first time in nine games that North Carolina was held under 80 points, as it shot just 41.8 percent from the field. The Tar Heels have been blowing out opponents all season, with 21 of their 22 victories coming by 15 points or more.

Three days after an embarrassing 74-47 loss at Clemson as a four-point road favorite, Duke returned home and came out flat against Miami, Fla., on Saturday, falling behind 32-19 at halftime. But the Blue Devils rallied and pulled out a 78-75 overtime victory, failing miserably as a 14-point chalk. Duke has followed up a 10-game winning streak (5-3-1 ATS in lined games) by splitting its last four contests (1-3 ATS). Still, 16 of the team’s 20 wins have been by more than 10 points.

Both squads are two games clear of the rest of the field in the ACC standings at 7-2 SU. However, neither has been profitable in conference action, with the Tar Heels going 3-6 ATS (2-2 ATS on the road) and Duke posting a 4-5 ATS mark (3-2 ATS at home).

North Carolina has taken control of this storied rivalry in recent years, winning four of the last five meetings and cashing in five of the last six, including three consecutive wins and covers at Cameron Indoor Stadium. Last year, Duke took the first clash 89-78 as a 4½-point road underdog, but the Tar Heels got revenge in a 76-68 victory as a 1½-point pup. UNC is 8-2 ATS in its last 10 trips to Cameron Indoor Stadium, the underdog is 12-3 ATS in the last 15 battles overall and the visitor has gotten the money in four of the last five.

From 2004-07, these rivals played seven games decided by a total of 27 points. However, the last three meetings were decided by margins of 14, 11 and eight points.

The Blue Devils average 78.2 ppg on 44.8 percent shooting, including 83 ppg on 46.5 percent shooting at home. More than anything, though, coach Mike Krzyzewski’s team has made its mark on defense this season, holding opponents to 61 ppg (40 percent shooting) overall, including 59 ppg (40 percent shooting) at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

The Tar Heels rank second in the nation in scoring at 92.3 ppg and 10th in field-goal percentage (48.8), and they’re putting up 83 ppg (46.5 percent shooting) on the highway. However, UNC is surrendering 71.2 ppg overall (40 percent) and 70 ppg on the road (40.2 percent).

North Carolina is 6-1 ATS in its last seven games on Wednesday and 5-1 ATS in its last six after a non-cover, but the Heels have failed to cover in nine of their last 12 ACC contests and 10 of their last 13 after an outright victory. Duke is 6-2 ATS in its last eight after a non-cover, but 6-14-1 ATS in its last 21 on Wednesday and 2-5-1 ATS in its last eight after a SU win. Also, in their only game as an underdog this season, the Blue Devils annihilated Purdue 76-60 as a two-point road pup.

North Carolina is on “over” stretches of 4-1 overall (all in conference), 8-2 on Wednesday, 4-1 after a SU win and 17-8 after an ATS setback. On the flip side, Duke is riding “under” streaks of 21-6 overall (10-2 last 12), 18-5 at home (6-2 last eight), 13-3 in ACC play, 35-17 on Wednesday, 19-7 after a SU win and 4-1 after an ATS loss.

Finally, the over is on a 5-1 run in this rivalry.

ATS ADVANTAGE: NORTH CAROLINA and OVER


(14) Xavier (20-3, 12-8-1 ATS) at Dayton (21-3, 8-11 ATS)

Coming off its first conference loss of the season, Xavier will attempt to bounce back when it visits Dayton in a battle of two of the top three teams in the Atlantic 10.

The Musketeers had an 11-game winning streak (8-1-1 ATS in lined games) snapped in Saturday’s 72-68 loss at Duquesne as a five-point road chalk. Xavier, which had scored at least 70 points in nine of its 11 wins during the streak, has struggled on defense lately, allowing 80, 74 and 72 points in its last three contests.

Dayton’s seven-game winning streak went by the wayside Sunday as it fell at Charlotte 79-66 as a two-point road favorite. The Flyers, who are just 4-8 ATS in their last 12 contests, have averaged just 61.3 points per game in their last four outings. Although they’re unbeaten through 14 games at Dayton Arena – holding visitors to 53.4 ppg – the Flyers are just 3-7 ATS in lined home contests.

Xavier still sits alone atop the A-10 standings, a half-game ahead of St. Joseph’s and one game clear of Dayton. The Musketeers are 8-1 SU and 6-1-1 ATS in conference, including 3-1 SU and ATS on the road. Dayton is 7-2 SU and 3-6 ATS in league play, including 4-0 SU but just 1-3 ATS at home.

The Musketeers have dominated this rivalry over the past two seasons, going 6-0 SU and 5-1 ATS, including 2-0 SU and ATS at Dayton Arena. Last year, Xavier won 69-43 as an 11-point home favorite, 57-51 as a 4½-point home chalk and 74-65 in the Atlantic 10 tournament, coming up just short as a 9½-point choice. The favorite is 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings, and the SU winner has cashed in eight of those 10 contests.

Both teams play tremendous defense, with Xavier allowing 63.5 ppg on 38.3 percent shooting and Dayton yielding 59 ppg on 38.1 percent shooting. The Musketeers rate the edge on offense, averaging 74 ppg (47.4 percent), while the Flyers put in 67.1 ppg (42.3 percent).

Xavier is on ATS streaks of 8-2-1 overall, 7-1 on the road, 6-1-1 against teams with a winning record and 4-1 as a favorite of less than five points. The Flyers are in pointspread funks of 3-7 overall, 1-5 at home, 8-17 in A-10 play and 2-6 on Wednesday, but they’ve cashed in both games as an underdog this season.

The over is on stretches of 5-2 for Xavier on the road, 13-3 for Xavier after a SU loss, 4-0 for Xavier after a non-cover, 9-3-1 for Dayton in league play and 5-1-1 for Dayton after an ATS setback. However, the under is 4-1 in the last five battles between these rivals at Dayton Arena.

ATS ADVANTAGE: XAVIER


(23) Syracuse (18-6, 9-11 ATS) at (1) Connecticut (22-1, 10-9 ATS)

UConn guns for its 12th consecutive victory when it hosts slumping Syracuse, which has lost five of its last seven games, including four straight Big East road contests.

The Huskies struggled with Michigan in a non-conference home game Saturday, eventually pulling away for a 69-61 victory but coming up way shot as a 16½-point chalk to end a four-game ATS winning streak. UConn has scored between 68 and 71 points in four of its last five games, but defensively, Jim Calhoun’s team remains solid, allowing just 56.6 ppg (35.2 percent shooting) in its last five games and holding nine of its last 11 opponents to 61 points or less.

Syracuse went to Villanova on Saturday and got spanked 102-85 as a 6½-point road underdog, the second time in as many road outings that the Orange surrendered 100 points. Since winning 16 of its first 17 contests, Syracuse is 2-5 SU and ATS, including 0-4 SU and ATS on the road, all in Big East action. Jim Boeheim’s squad yielded 92 ppg in those four road defeats. The SU winner is 9-0 ATS in the Orange’s last nine contests, all in league play.

This has been a competitive rivalry in recent years, with UConn winning six of the last 10 matchups both SU and ATS, including a 63-61 win as a 2½-point road underdog in last year’s lone meeting. The winner has cashed in each of the last 10 series clashes, the favorite is 5-2 ATS in the last seven clashes, and the Huskies are 6-0 ATS in the last six regular-season battles against Syracuse on their home court.

In addition to its ATS slumps of 1-4 overall and 0-4 on the road, Syracuse is 2-5 ATS in its last seven on Wednesday, 1-5 ATS in its last six as an underdog and 1-4 ATS in its last five against winning teams. Also, after starting the year 3-0 SU and ATS against Top 25 teams, the Orange have gone 1-4 SU and ATS in five contests against ranked Big East foes. UConn has cashed in four consecutive Big East games and four of five against winning teams, but it is 2-6 ATS in lined home games this season. The Huskies are 7-1 (6-2 ATS) against Top 25 competition

The under is 10-4 in the last 14 head-to-head battles, including 6-2 in the last eight at Connecticut. Also, UConn is on “under” runs of 4-1 overall, 5-2 in Big East play and 10-4 against winning teams, and the Orange have stayed low in 10 of their last 14 against winning teams. However, the over is 4-1 in Syracuse’s last five on the highway.

ATS ADVANTAGE: UCONN and UNDER


(2) Oklahoma (23-1, 10-8-1 ATS) at Baylor (15-8, 6-9 ATS)

Baylor, which has seen its NCAA Tournament hopes take a big hit this month, can help its resume immensely if it can hand second-ranked Oklahoma its first Big 12 loss of the season.

The Bears fell apart down the stretch at Texas Tech on Saturday, falling 83-76 as a 4½-point road favorite, their fifth consecutive SU and ATS defeat. During the slump, Baylor is 0-2 SU and ATS at home and it is averaging 72.2 ppg on just 38.3 percent shooting while allowing 84 ppg on 50.3 percent shooting. Since starting the season 12-1 (4-1 ATS in lined games), the Bears are 3-7 SU and 2-8 ATS, including 2-3 SU and 1-4 ATS at home.

The Sooners ran their winning streak to 11 with Saturday’s narrow 77-72 victory over Big 12 bottom-feeder Colorado, falling way short of covering as a 19½-point home favorite. Oklahoma has followed up a 5-1-1 ATS run with back-to-back non-covers, and the team’s last four wins have come by an average of 7.3 points per game. However, the Sooners have been filling the bucket lately, pouring in 83 ppg on 49 percent shooting in their last five contests.

Oklahoma is the only Big 12 team unbeaten in conference play at 9-0 (5-3-1 ATS), including 4-0 (3-0-1 ATS) at home. Baylor is now just 3-6 (2-7 ATS) in the Big 12, including 2-2 (1-3 ATS) at home.

This has been a lopsided series in favor of Oklahoma, which has won 29 consecutive meetings since 1997 and is 34-5 all-time against Baylor. Back on Jan. 24 in Norman, Okla., the Sooners cruised to a 95-76 victory as a seven-point home chalk, a result that started the Bears’ current five-game SU and ATS slide. Oklahoma is 6-1-1 ATS in the last eight meetings overall and 6-1-1 ATS in its last eight trips to Waco, including a 77-71 upset win as a 4½-point road favorite last year.

Oklahoma is on ATS streaks of 5-2-1 on the road, 5-2-1 against winning teams, 8-3 on Wednesday and 4-0 as a favorite of less than five points, but it is 19-40-3 ATS in its last 62 road games versus teams with a winning home mark. Baylor carries negative ATS trends of 0-5 overall, 1-4 at home and 0-4 against winning squads, but the Bears have cashed in all three games as an underdog of less than five points.

Seven of the last eight series clashes in this rivalry have topped the total. Also, Baylor is on “over” streaks of 24-8-1 overall, 11-5 at home, 39-17-1 in Big 12 play, 7-1 versus winning teams, 11-3-1 after a SU defeat and 21-6-1 after a non-cover, while the Sooners have topped the total in six consecutive games (all against league foes). However, the under is 9-4-1 in Oklahoma’s last 14 on the highway.

ATS ADVANTAGE: OKLAHOMA and OVER

Re: NCAAB News and Notes Wednesday 2/11

Tips and Trends

#22 Syracuse at #1 Connecticut


Syracuse: The Orange will be looking to end a four-game road losing streak in a place where they have never won. They are 0-3 all-time at Gampel Pavilion and will also be counting on their ailing center to defend arguably the best big man in the country in UConn's Hasheem Thabeet. Arinze Onuaku is dealing with a nagging knee injury, which has slowed him down dramatically. Onuaku is averaging just 5.4 points in his last five games, less than half of his season average.

Syracuse is 1-4 ATS in its last 5 games overall.
The UNDER is 10-4 in the last 14 meetings.

Key Injuries - NONE

PROJECTED SCORE: 65 (UNDER - Total Play of the Day)

UConn (-12, O/U 148): The Huskies have won 12 straight games but have surprisingly lost to Syracuse two of the last three times they were ranked #1. They held Michigan to only 38.6 percent shooting in a 69-61 win on Saturday thanks to Thabeet, who totaled 17 points, 12 rebounds and six blocks. “He changes the game completely for us,” UConn guard A.J. Price said. “I don’t know where we’d be without him.”

UConn is 4-1 ATS in its last 5 games overall.
The UNDER is 6-2 in UConn's last 8 games overall.

Key Injuries - NONE

PROJECTED SCORE: 77


#3 North Carolina at #5 Duke

North Carolina (-1.5, O/U 157): Tyler Hansbrough and Danny Green can become just the second pair of teammates ever to win all four visits to Cameron Indoor Stadium by earning another victory there on Wednesday. Tim Duncan and Rusty LaRue of Wake Forest were the first teammates to accomplish the feat and remain the only two players to go 4-for-4 at Cameron. “You said it right there - it’s winning,” Hansbrough said. “Any time you beat them, here or there, it means a lot.”

North Carolina is 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings at Duke.
The OVER is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.

Key Injuries - G Marcus Ginyard (foot) is OUT.

PROJECTED SCORE: 81 (Side Play of the Day)

Duke: There is obviously a lot on the line in this game, including first place in the ACC, which could eventually translate into the top seed in the conference tournament and a potential #1 seed in the Big Dance. However, the last national championship teams for each school lost the first meeting before going on to cut down the nets. “It usually takes 40 minutes to beat us here,” Blue Devils guard Jon Scheyer said. “That’s something we take pride in - especially at home, with our crowd as good as they are, especially against Carolina. It’s going to take 40 minutes of effort and playing sharp.”

Underdog is 12-3 ATS in the last 15 meetings.
The UNDER is 21-6 in Duke's last 27 games overall.

Key Injuries - NONE

PROJECTED SCORE: 76
