NCAA Basketball Look Ahead; Monday, Feb. 7, 2022
We are now nearing the end of the college basketball season as conference tournaments will start to get underway in just over a month.
There is a ton of very good conference matchups this upcoming week, and this is the point where games are going to start deciding whether or not a team can win a conference title.
Losses from here on out are going to be very tough for some programs to overcome if they wish to win a conference title. Below we take a look at five games that will be of impact this week.
Virginia Cavaliers Travels to Durham to Face Duke Blue Devils
The Virginia Cavaliers hit the road for an ACC battle with the Duke Blue Devils in what will be a very good matchup. Virginia is 13-9 on the season and is sitting at 7-5 thus far this year in conference play. Duke is 18-3 this year and is 8-2 in ACC play. Duke is ranked #9 in the country.
Duke is led by Paolo Banchero, who scores 17.8 points per game. Jayden Garnder scores 14.5 points a game for Virginia. Duke scores 80.4 points a game, while Virginia scores 62.9 points per game this season.
Virginia has been great on defense this year, but I give the edge to Duke with their firepower.
