Miami (FL) Hurricanes at Duke Blue Devils

Projected point spread: Duke -7 to -9

Duke suffered another loss on Thursday night in a slower-paced game at Virginia, despite a combined 50 points from Seth Curry and Quinn Cook. The Blue Devils were outrebounded by a dozen and struggled defensively, particularly in the paint. Those same issues plagued Mike Krzyzewski's squad in the first meeting against Miami, which resulted in a 27-point Hurricanes win.
