To the ACC we go tonight for Wednesday's Play of the Day. Duke (20-5, 8-4 ACC) has won 5 straight as they shake off the injury bug. The trio of Luke Kennard, Grayson Allen and Jayson Tatum are leading the way.
Virginia (18-6, 8-4) uses it's nation's best defense (55.1) to rattle opponents, but that will be a tough task vs. a Coach K Blue Devil squad. Further, the Cavaliers have dropped 3 of their last 5 heading into tonight's contest.
Look for Duke to force Virginia into more of an up tempo game than they want. I think it will be close, but I like Duke here and I love them getting 5 points.
Good luck, players!
