Duke vs. Syracuse Will Be an Instant Classic
There are plenty of matchups to look for in tonight’s game. On the bench, future Hall of Fame head coaches Mike Krzyzewski of Duke and Jim Boeheim of Syracuse will go down as two of the greatest to ever be patrolling the sidelines.
On the court there are some tremendous matchups as well. First is the matchup in the frontcourt between Duke’s super freshman Jabari Parker and Syracuse’s underrated senior in C.J. Fair. Parker, the likely No. 1 overall pick in the NBA Draft, can do it all for the Blue Devils and is a scoring machine. On the other side, Fair leads the Orange in scoring and is a do everything player on both sides of the court.
In the backcourt, Duke’s Rodney Hood and Syracuse’s freshman sensation Tyler Ennis are the main attractions. Hood, after transferring from Mississippi State, has given the Blue Devils versatility on both sides of the court as he is a dependable shooter from three-point range and can shut down an opponent’s best player. Syracuse has their own star in Ennis, who has averaged 12 points per game and has a three to one assist to turnover ratio.
Syracuse will look to keep their perfect season intact while the Blue Devils will look to get even closer to Syracuse atop the ACC standings.
Prediction: At home in front of 30,000 fans, the Orange find a way to get it done and continue their march toward regular season perfection.
