In a game from NCAA Basketball, we will see Duke at Wake Forest.
Duke responded to its loss to Gonzaga with 7 consecutive wins. Apart from this game, they looked dominant in any of their other 12 games. The team is also coming off an 87-68 win over Clemson on Saturday. Duke’s top scorer RJ Barrett is having a quiet start to the year and we expect him to burst soon rather sooner than later. Zion Williamson is continuing his development and he is improving with each game played.
Wake Forest is currently 7-6 and it is coming off a rough 92-79 loss on the road to Georgia Tech. The Deacons shot just 40% from the field and we can only highlight Brandon Childress’ performance as he finished with 28 points but none of the other guys on the team helped him much. Wake Forest enjoyed an easy schedule so far in the season and it is 5-2 on their home court.
I expect another convincing win for Duke which is steamrolling past opponents at the moment. It is high RJ Barret had a good game and scored over 20 points again.
