Virginia Tech Hokies in an important ACC basketball game Tuesday night at Cassell Coliseum in Blacksburg, Virginia. Check back here for updates before and during the game with a complete wrap up after it ends. Short bench for Blue Devils Winless in two previous games against ranked teams this season, No 19 Duke will face No.
Arguably the top Duke basketball great currently in the NBA is out for now. Former Duke basketball one-and-done and fourth-year Boston Celtics sensation Jayson Tatum will likely not be in action for 10-14 days from Friday after reportedly testing positive for COVID-19. First and foremost, although the 22-year-old remains asymptomatic, we wish him a speedy recovery.
For the 22nd year in a row, the Duke Blue Devils have beaten the Wake Forest Demon Deacons in Cameron Indoor Stadium, this time by a score of 79-68. Much like the Virginia game earlier this week, the Deacs played a great 30 minutes and were neck and neck with one of the best teams in the ACC on the road, only to come up short in the final fourth of the game. With 10 minutes left in this one, the Deacs trailed Duke by just 3 points, 57-60, but were unable to complete the upset on the road.
