After a busy Friday of college hoops, the ACC Tournament takes center stage for the night cap, as the Duke Blue Devils (and their massive fan base) take on the Clemson Tigers to close the evening.
Duke received a bye until the quarterfinals as a result of their top-4 seed, and the Blue Devils are ready and waiting. Coach K’s squad finished with the 2nd-ranked offense in the country on a per-play basis (123.9 points per 100 possessions), and with the duo of Jabari Parker and Rodney Hood involved, few programs can match what Duke puts on the floor on a regular basis.
Clemson has a bit of a tougher road to the quarterfinals, including a late night, overtime victory over Georgia Tech on Thursday evening. Clemson’s top-20 defense (allowing 93.9 points per 100) will receive its biggest test of the season against the Duke offense, but their best chance in an unfriendly atmosphere is to force the Blue Devils into bad shots and collect rebounds to flip the floor.
