There are five Top 25 teams in action on Tuesday night, but the focus will mostly be in Columbus where the No. 1 Duke Blue Devils take on the Ohio State Buckeyes in another tough matchup for the Mike Krzyzewski on his last tour around college basketball.
Duke (7-0) held off Gonzaga 84-81 in Las Vegas on Friday night in what was the game of the season so far, with freshman Paolo Banchero leading all scorers with 21 points, and Mark Williams adding 17 points and nine rebounds. It was a complete performance, and though the advanced stats still have the Zags as the better team overall, Duke was deservedly voted the best team in the nation on Monday.
Ohio State (4-2) has played three games of consequence so far, beating Seton Hall but losing to Xavier and Florida. E.J. Liddell is the only double-digit scorer on the team, but he’s getting a whopping 22.5 points per game, and leading the team with 6.2 rebounds per contest as well. This will be a battle of pace, as the Buckeyes look to take their time at just over 67 possessions per game. Duke will want to speed them up and run as much as possible.
