Kyle Filipowski (Center) vs. Tramon Mark (Guard)

Duke freshman Kyle Filipowski has burst onto the scene this year, averaging 18.8 points and 8 rebounds per game. The versatile big man is a tough cover with his ability to score inside and out while also protecting the rim on defense. However, he has struggled with turnovers at times. Tramon Mark has led Arkansas in scoring, putting up 18.4 points per contest. The quick guard excels at getting to the rim but will need to knock down outside shots to space the floor against Duke.

This matchup will be intriguing, with Filipowski having a significant size advantage down low but Mark possessing a quickness edge on the perimeter. Whichever player can exploit these edges more effectively could swing the outcome. Expect both coaches to scheme ways to get their stars favorable looks on offense. On defense, Duke may throw some double teams at Mark, while Arkansas looks to force Filipowski into tight spots inside.

Duke Key Players and Stats Analysis for a Formidable Squad

Led by the talented trio of Filipowski, Jeremy Roach, and Dereck Lively II, Duke features one of the most dangerous starting fives in college basketball. Roach runs the offense effectively as a passer and driver, while Lively protects the rim at an elite level. Surrounding their key trio with marksmen like Tyrese Proctor makes this unit even tougher to stop.

On offense, the Blue Devils utilize great spacing with reliable shooters at multiple positions. By involving Filipowski as a scorer and passer, they make it difficult for defenses to key on one option. On defense, Duke has the size and length inside to challenge drives as well as secure rebounds. If Roach and the wings can force difficult perimeter looks, this defense could stifle Arkansas.

Arkansas Strategies for Success Against Duke

Outside of Mark’s scoring prowess, the Razorbacks have several secondary contributors like Anthony Black, Ricky Council IV, and Jordan Walsh. This balance takes pressure off Mark as the lead threat. Defensively, Arkansas utilizes intense ball pressure to speed teams up and force turnovers to spark transition offense.

For the Razorbacks to pull off the upset, they’ll need to knock down outside shots to prevent Duke from packing the paint. Turning Filipowski and other Blue Devil bigs into defenders in space could lead to foul trouble or allow driving lanes to open up. Walsh and Makhi Mitchell must also hold their own on the glass and defensively against Duke’s formidable frontcourt.
