Duke Blue Devils vs. Virginia Cavaliers, 2/9/19 Predictions & Odds

In allowing their most points this season, the Cavaliers were particularly spotty challenging shots from beyond the arc, with the Blue Devils making 13 of 21 while rolling to an 81-71 win.

Virginia has only one flaw on its schedule so far this season. That's the best we shot from the three-point line. Its previous high was eight to Notre Dame on 29 attempts. De'Andre Hunter is leading the team with 14.7 points and 5.4 rebounds per contest.

"I thought we were a little slow to our closeouts", says UVa head coach Tony Bennett. "We tried to keep them out of the lane and jam the lane, and we probably overcorrected in terms of that".

Way back on November 6, when Duke served notice it was a serious national title contender with a 118-84 demolishing of Kentucky, the Blue Devils hit 12 of 26 3-pointers (46.2 percent).

Parts of the eight men's bodies were later found in decorative planters at a home where McArthur worked as a landscaper. Many in the LGBTQ community say it's a slap in the face, a failure to send a clear signal that their lives matter.


Blue Devils coach Mike Krzyzewski said James told him he planned to attend the game, a high-stakes matchup between a pair of powerhouses that might help Duke seal the No. 1 overall seed in the upcoming NCAA tournament.

Kyle Guy and Ty Jerome each scored 16 to lead Virginia (20-2, 8-2), which plays the No. 8 Tar Heels on Monday night.

ESPN's College GameDay will be in Virginia Saturday morning, and the students will have all day to get ready for the game in Charlottesville. The Cavaliers lost to the Blue Devils at John Paul Jones Arena for the third consecutive time. "We did a much better job in the gap, and they didn't get as many driving lanes, but when you hit thirteen three's you're going to be hard to beat".

Durham's Jay Huff hit a 3-pointer for Virginia before zipping a nice pass under the basket for a Braxton Key layin that cut Duke's lead to 54-49.

In what was the only change for India , they swapped their wrist-spinner including Kuldeep Yadav in place of Yuzvendra Chahal. Dinesh Karthik and Krunal Pandya were only able to take 11 runs off it, with Karthik's six from the final ball in vain.


But as had been the case in the first half, just when Virginia had been gaining steam, the Blue Devils answered with a timely three-pointer, this time from staring point guard Tre Jones from the left corner.

Duke: Williamson is the player that everyone seems to focus on in pregame warmups because of his physical gifts, but it's Barrett that leads the Blue Devils in scoring (23 points per game to Williamson's 22 entering the game).

Krzyzewski developed a bond with James when he was the head coach of the US men's national team. "It was really kind of neat to see the kids step up that way". After the break, Reddish connected three times from deep as the Blue Devils pushed the margin to 52-41 in just over four minutes.

Duke Blue Devils freshman phenom Zion Williamson has made his fair share of incredible plays thus far during his first (and surely only) collegiate season.

While reading his sentencing decision, the Quebec Superior Court judge said that "punishment should not be vengeance". Bissonnette, who is only 29-years-old, pleaded guilty to the six counts of first-degree murder in March of last year.


But if any player might supplant Williamson at the top of the draft, it's Barrett. James was dribbling a basketball and laughing as the Blue Devils poured out of the locker room for warm-ups. With Jones in the lineup, Duke leads the country in steal percentage (13.9). He also had seven assists, six rebounds, and two steals.
