Louisville vs Duke Preview
This has all the makings of a powerhouse matchup. Duke boasts the best offense in the ACC Conference, averaging 83.1 points a game. Louisville has the second-best defense in the conference, allowing just 61.6 points a game.
Duke is coming off its second loss of the season, a 79-72 road loss to Clemson. The Blue Devils had won nine games straight prior to their most recent defeat, and they’ll be facing a tough challenge in this Louisville team.
The Blue Devils will also a bit banged up entering this one. Wendell Moore Jr. has been out after getting surgery on his hand, and Joey Baker sprained his ankle this week, leaving his status for this game uncertain. The team’s top four scorers should still be good to go, however.
Freshman center Vernon Carey Jr. is leading the team in both points per game (17.6) and rebounds (8.5), and guard Tre Jones is adding 15.1 points while leading the team in assists (6.8 a game). They’ll be joined by guard Cassius Stanley, who is scoring 11.7 points a game, and forward Matthew Hurt, who’s chipping in 10.6 points per contest.
As for the Cardinals, they’ve won three straight after losing back-to-back games to Kentucky and Florida State. Louisville is coming off a 73-68 overtime victory over Pitt. Junior forward Jordan Nwora led the Cardinals in scoring with 14 points, and Nwora is the team’s leading scorer, averaging 20.4 points a game. Center Steven Enoch is second on the team in scoring, averaging 10.8 points a game.
Louisville coach Chris Mack knows how huge a win would be for his team here. He also knows that beating Duke at home is no small feat. “It’s not easy to go on the road in conference play … I don’t care what conference you’re in,” Mack said after his team’s win against Pitt, noting that the Cardinals’ strong finish in that game could “hopefully give us confidence in those moments in the future.”
Duke has faced two ranked opponents (Kansas and Michigan State) on the season, and they’re 2-0 in those games. Louisville has played against three ranked teams this year (Kentucky, Florida State, and Michigan), and the Cardinals are 1-2 in those games.
Both teams are currently 5-1 in conference play, and a win is critical for each of them.
