Duke led 44-34 at halftime, but they were outscored 33-32 in the second half but still muscles out a win. The Blue Devils shot 46.4% from the field and made 10 three pointers in that area game. Duke has also beat Wake Forest, Boston College, and Notre Dame during this winning streak.

Kyle Filipowski is a monster for this Duke program! He is averaging 17 points per game, 8.3 rebounds per game, and 2.7 assists per game. Duke is shooting 48% from the field, 72.8% on free throws, and 37.6% on three pointers this season. Can they pull off a big win here or will their streak end tonight??

Miami was tied at 41 at halftime, but then they allowed 44 second-half points and ultimately took the loss. The Hurricanes shot a solid 52.9% from the field and made 13 three-pointers in the game.

The talent is there and this team has experience! I'm not sure why they're a tough team to back this season but it's getting down to “Now or Never” type ball for this Miami team.

💎 MIAMI +5 -105

  • This is a game that I absolutely can't wait to watch tonight! I'm a big Miami Guy but I also love Duke! This will be a great game and it will come down to the wire! We have two teams simply heading in different directions! Miami is to much of a competitive program to stay down long and I know these boys could really use a big win here. The Hurricanes have dropped four games in a row and they have allowed 85, 77, and 75 points in their last three games, while Duke is on a four game winning streak. The Blue Devils are fighting with Virginia and North Carolina for first in the ACC and they have been very strong defensively in recent games. Miami has a good amount of talent on their team, but they have not been able to figure it out so far this season. The Hurricanes need to string some wins together to get back into the tournament discussion and I think we are going to see one of their best performances of the year in this game tonight! With that being said, Give me Miami and the points at home and we will be looking for Miami to pull of a upset here!!
