Duke NC State Preview

Duke @ NC State
NC State is in dire need of a win having lost their last 6 games. The big
weak spot for the Wolf pack this year has been the PG play. Duke will press NC State the entire game trying to exploit this weakness. Sidney Lowe's club wants to play half court style, but in their last meeting with Duke they got caught in the Blue Devils dribble and drive style allowing Duke 92 points. One area NC State holds an advantage is inside with their three talented forwards. If they can find a way to co-exist and stay out of foul trouble they could give State a shot. However, I like Duke to rebound from their 2-15 three point shooting on Wednesday.
Prediction: Duke

Duke NC State line
A road favorite is always a dicey proposition in the ACC but I would put the Blue Devils at around -700 for this one.

Season: 59-17 (78%)
ACC: 30-10 (75%)
