Over the past three games, Duke has dominated its competition, winning by an average margin of 38.3 points per contest. Next up, the Blue Devils will host the Yale Bulldogs.
There is no question that Duke will be heavily favored heading into this matchup. However, don’t dismiss the recent success of the Bulldogs.
Yale started the season with an abysmal 1-2 record, but have won three consecutive games, which features victories against Miami and Lehigh.
Tomorrow presents another opportunity for the Blue Devils to gain chemistry before conference play begins. On the other side, it’s a chance for the Bulldogs to stun the college basketball world.

It wasn't as much of a blowout as it may have looked but the Blue Devils move to 8-1 on the year and will host Yale on Saturday

Tipoff is set for 5:30 p.m. ET from Cameron Indoor Stadium.
