On Saturday afternoon, the Duke Blue Devils will travel into hostile territory to take on the Louisville Cardinals. This is a must-see event, as these two college basketball powerhouses have very contrasting styles of play. Currently, Duke is 18th in the country in scoring (84.5 points per game), while Louisville is tied for 15th in the country in defense (61.9 points per game). Something’s gotta give in this ACC showdown.
Duke (14-3, 2-2 ACC) started the week ranked #7 in the AP Poll, but they will probably drop a bit after losing to #9 Florida State on the road. The Seminoles pulled off an 88-72 victory on Tuesday night, and it will be interesting to see how the Blue Devils respond to having another tough road game on the docket.
While Duke lost their most recent game, Louisville is coming off two straight wins. The #14 ranked Cardinals (14-3, 2-2 ACC) have beaten Georgia Tech and Pittsburgh the last two times they stepped on the hardwood.
It’s a small sample size, but since Louisville joined the ACC in 2014, Duke has held the upper hand in the series. The Blue Devils have gone 2-1 against the Cardinals in their first three meetings as fellow members of the ACC.
Now that you know a little bit about the matchup, let’s break down all of the ways you can watch the game.
