Based on their recent performances, the Duke Blue Devils are clearly looking to make up for their loss to Gonzaga last month. In the last two games, Coach K’s team has crushed Indiana and Stetson by a combined 85-point margin.
Now staying put at No. 3, Duke needs to keep on winning convincingly in order to keep pace with undefeated Gonzaga and Kansas. Thankfully for Duke, Williamson and R.J. Barrett have been doing plenty of heavy lifting.
Hartford (3-6) seems unlikely to prove any more of a challenge for Zion Williamson and company. The Hawks have lost three of their last five and have only scored 90 points once this year (vs. Western New England).
By contrast, the Blue Devils have scored at least 90 points in more than half of their games, and over 110 points twice.
Here is all of the vital game info you’ll need:
- Time: 7 p.m. ET/ 6 p.m. CT
- TV: ESPN2
- Announcers: Bob Wischusen, LaPhonso Ellis.
Guess what day it is⁉️
