Duke Blue Devils vs Boston College Eagles 2/4/2020
Duke Blue Devils
Duke Blue Devils are on a three-game winning streak and their current record stands at 18-3. Their last two losses were recorded on January 14 and 18 against the Clemson Tigers and Louisville Cardinals respectively. This team is loaded with talent and can boast four to five NBA caliber talents. Vernon Carey leads the pack with 17.8 points and 8.9 rebounds while Jones helps with 15 points, 3.9 rebounds and 6.8 assists. Stanley is another player that they can rely on plus a good bench. This team is set to make some noise post-RJ Barret and Zion Willamson era and never faltered with the amount of talent.
Players to watch: V. Carey Jr. C (21 GP 24.7 MIN 17.8 PTS 8.9 REB 1.1 AST 0.7 STL 1.6 BLK 2 TO 59.7 FG% 60.8 FT% 45.5 3P%), T. Jones G (19 GP 34.1 MIN 15 PTS 3.9 REB 6.8 AST 2 STL 0.4 BLK 2.8 TO 44 FG% 74.7 FT% 36.2 3P%), C. Stanley G (20 GP 25.6 MIN 12.3 PTS 4.4 REB 1.1 AST 0.9 STL 0.8 BLK 1.8 TO 51.5 FG% 72.9 FT% 35.8 3P%).
Boston College Eagles
Boston is battling for consistency with as they won two of their last three games after a four-game losing streak. Their last victory was registered against the North Carolina Tar Heels by just one point and it was an upset win. They hope to carry that momentum heading to this game as the combination of Thornton and Heath will lead the team. 12.8 points, 3 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.3 steals is the average of Thornton while Heath contributes similarly with 12.4 points, 3.1 rebounds, two assists and 1.5 steals. Popovic is the man in the middle for them as he is doing 10 points and five boards per game. In order to win against Duke, this team needs to pull out a rabbit out of the hat but that can come if the bench players manage to play big in this game.
Players to watch: D. Thornton G (20 GP 30.5 MIN 12.8 PTS 3 REB 3.6 AST 1.3 STL 0.3 BLK 3.3 TO 39.1 FG% 75 FT% 24.7 3P%), J. Heath G (21 GP 32 MIN 12.4 PTS 3.1 REB 2 AST 1.5 STL 0 BLK 1.9 TO 42.3 FG% 55.6 FT% 38.2 3P%), N. Popovic F (13 GP 25.8 MIN 10.5 PTS 5.1 REB 1.4 AST 0.6 STL 0.5 BLK 2.1 TO 44 FG% 69.4 FT% 29 3P%).
