We’ve got a clash of the titans on tap for this afternoon, as the #14 Duke Blue Devils will take on the #10 Louisville Cardinals. This is only the quarterfinal round of the ACC Tournament, which shows just how insanely deep the conference was this year.
This is Louisville’s first game of the ACC Tournament, as they earned a double bye with a 12-6 record in conference play. The Cardinals were tied for second place in the regular season, but they ended up getting the #4 seed in the ACC Tournament due to tiebreakers.
Duke earned a single bye in the tournament after finishing tied with Virginia for fifth place in the ACC with a 11-7 record in conference play. The Blue Devils were awarded the #5 seed in the ACC Tournament, as they went 1-0 against Virginia in the regular season. To advance to the quarterfinals, Duke beat #12 Clemson 79-72 in the second round.
Louisville and Duke only met once during the regular season, and the Cards were able to emerge victorious in front of a raucous home crowd. On January 14, Louisville defeated Duke 78-69, backed by Anas Mahmoud’s monster double-double of 17 points and 15 rebounds.
Now that you know a little bit about the matchup, let’s breakdown all of the ways you can watch the game.
