Duke. . . . . 2. 15-4 Record. . 434. 6-2 in ACC Play

After losing to Pittsburgh in Durham to end last week, the Duke Blue Devils followed that up by picking up victories against Louisville and Clemson.

To address the elephant in the room, yes there were plenty of questions surrounding the end of the Clemson game. I may not make many Tar Heels fans happy by saying this, but Clemson shot itself in the foot by turning the ball over on four consecutive possessions down the stretch.

Blame the referees all ya want, but Clemson essentially handed Duke the opportunity to stay in the game and ultimately win it.

Now, the Blue Devils will focus on the week ahead, as they take trips to Virginia Tech and down the road to Chapel Hill. Can they be the team to give the Tar Heels their first conference loss of the 2023-2024 season?
