The Duke Blue Devils are one of the most successful collegiate basketball programs in the world, winning numerous NCAA championships and making multiple Final Four appearances. But as a part of the ACC, they primarily compete against other ACC schools, like Georgia Tech and North Carolina. The Yellow Jackets may have the smaller population, but they are the top winningest college basketball program in the nation having never finished outside the top 10 in adjusted games played.

Fight the power – Duke is the only ACC team ranked among the nation’s top 25 in the Associated Press or Coaches polls as of Monday. Should that hold at the end of the season, the Blue Devils would be Tech’s only game against a ranked opponent in conference this season. The Jackets have never played fewer than three games against top-25 opponents in a season (2012-13 vs. Duke, Miami, NC State).

It took Duke much of the first half to get some separation. Tech only led at 9-7 and 9-8. It was tied at 11-11 and still close at 22-21, with 5:32 left in the half. But Paolo Banchero made five of six foul shots and A.J. Griffin hit a 3 as Duke’s 8-0 run put them up 30-21. After two foul shots by Michael Sturdivant, Duke scored the final five points of the half and went into the locker room, up 35-23. (Source: www.dukebasketballreport.com)
