Saturday Clash Between Virginia Cavaliers And Duke Blue Devils

January 13, 2011

This Saturday, the Virginia Cavaliers will clash with the Duke Blue Devils. To this point in the season, the Blue Devils are currently the top ranked team in the nation and have shown little sign of weakness. The Blue Devils look to keep rolling behind the leadership of Nolan Smith and Kyle Singler as they have already won their first 15 games. On the season, the Cavaliers are currently 10 -6.

For this matchup, in college basketball betting lines, NCAAB Odds have not yet been posted.

When previewing this matchup, the Cavaliers appear to be overmatched. In almost every category, the Blue Devils are one of the top teams in the NCAA. By averaging 88 points a game, the Blue Devils shoot nearly 50 percent from the field. Their great ball movement is the key of their offensive success. In assists per game, the Blue Devils are the 20th best team in the nation.

That does not appear to have any particular feature of the game, what the Cavaliers are proficient at. On 43 percent shooting, the team averages just 64 points per game. At 11.5, they are 279th in the nation in assists per game. The Cavaliers are just 298th in the nation in rebounds per game at 32.1, in spite of being a very poor shooting team.

The Cavaliers did have a win over 17th ranked Minnesota that will give them hope even as they have not looked particularly good this season. Whether the team that beat Minnesota will show up, or if the team that lost to Washington by 43 will show up, is the only question and all signs point towards Duke winning this game.
