Full 2014 Home Victory Over Duke
Tonight the Deacs will host the Duke Blue Devils, who have a very legitimate chance to win the national title this season. Louisville was a very tough test for the Demon Deacons, but tonight's test will be much harder. Duke is slightly worse than Louisville defensively, but the Blue Devils have the highest offensive efficiency in the country.
Duke has also yet to win a game by fewer than 10 points this season and is coming off a 23 point victory over Boston College. They only beat Elon by 13 at home this year, so they aren't perfect, but it's going to take an outstanding effort tonight for the Deacs to emerge victorious. I hope the Deacs can pull it off and extend their winning streak against Duke to two games.
As always, go Deacs!
