The Blue Devils remain arguably the most talented team in the country, but they could use a big-time win right about now, and a victory over North Carolina, a team that looks like it could make a run to the national champion yet again, would provide said big-time win.While Grayson Allen hasn’t been the same player he was last year, he is still averaging 15.8 points per game in 2016-17. He is still capable of torching any defense in college hoops, and he will do just that by dropping 20-plus points on North Carolina.
The No. 8 North Carolina Tar Heels and the No. 18 Duke Blue Devils meet Thursday night at Duke’s Cameron Indoor Stadium, marking the 143rd consecutive meeting that at least one of the teams is nationally ranked.
Duke has won four of the last five meetings and 11 of the last 15, but North Carolina won last year in Durham to cap an ACC regular-season championship.
This is Duke vs. North Carolina, meaning anything is possible.Four players on the Tar Heels are averaging 12-plus points per game. Meanwhile, five Blue Devils are putting up 10 or more points per contest. What does that mean? Well, it simply means both teams are loaded with players who can put the ball in the hoop at a decent rate. After all, Duke’s Luke Kennard is averaging 19.8 points per game. Justin Jackson is leading North Carolina with 18.6 points per contest. Still, it wouldn’t be a surprise if players like Kennedy Meeks or Jayson Tatum led all scorers.
