In a game from NCAA Basketball, we will see Virginia Tech at Duke.
The Virginia Tech Hokies enter this game after winning a low scoring game against Liberty in the previous round. Virginia Tech scored 67 points while allowing 58. Kerry Blackshear Jr. led the team with 19 points and he also had a team-high of 8 rebounds. As a team, Virginia Tech is averaging 73.6 points per game on 47.3% shooting from the floor. On defense, they are allowing just 61 points per game which is good for 9th in the country.
The Duke Blue Devils escaped with a 77-76 last-second win over UCF in a game where they were favored to win by 13. Zion Williamson shot 50 percent from the field and he finished with 32 points while RJ Barrett, who was relatively quiet for his standards, added 16 points, 8 rebounds, and 4 assists. Duke is one of the highest scoring teams in the country, averaging 83.4 points per game.
Duke is clearly the better side and I expect them to bounce back from the nightmare they had last time out and Barrett should explode against a bigger opponent that can’t defend the three.
