In all of college basketball, there’s fewer places you’d like to see two top-10 teams matched up with each other with a trophy on the line than Madison Square Garden, and that’s exactly what we’re going to be treated to Friday night. In the finals of the NIT Season Tip-Off Tournament, the sixth-ranked Duke Blue Devils will be taking on the fourth-ranked Arizona Wildcats for the championship.
Duke comes into this one at 6-1 on the season and having defeated the Alabama Crimson Tide on Wednesday night, 84-74. Once again, Duke was led by a tremendous effort from stud freshman Jabari Parker, who finished with 27 points on the night in the semifinal game.
Arizona comes in still undefeated after surviving a big scare from Drexel in their semifinal contest. In the end, though, head coach Sean Miller and his team were able to come away with the win, 66-62.
