#2 Duke vs. #12 Georgetown
These two teams arent exactly the legendary college teams of old without future hall of fame players like they have had in the past with basketball greats like the Hoyas Allen Iverson and Patrick Ewing or the Blue Devils Grant Hill and Elton Brand, but somehow, someway the Georgetown Hoyas and Duke Blue Devils are always near the top of the Top 25 college basketball teams in the country every year.
This season is no exception for Coach K has his Blue Devil boys playing at a high level once again, not quite #1 in the country just yet, but not far off sitting comfortably at #2 just behind #1 Pittsburgh.
As for the Hoyas, John Thompson Jr. and company have already dropped three Games this season, but that hasnt been easy Schedule or Conference for Georgetown as the Big East is arguably the best Conference in college basketball right now with teams like Pittsburgh (#1), UConn (#4), Syracuse (#8) and Notre Dame (#13) all in the top 15 teams in the country.
Although Georgetown has lost three Games this season, two of which to Pitt and Notre Dame, they are coming off a big 14 point victory over #8 Syracuse which will give them some much needed momentum going into this Game against Duke.
As for Duke, they are on a roll with a 7 Game winning streak. Even though many people will predict Duke taking down Georgetown, if any team in Dukes relatively weak Schedule can beat the Blue Devils it is the Hoyas.

The Hoyas have been tested all season long playing against some of the best teams in the country night in and night out. With that being said they will be more than ready for Duke and have a great chance of pulling off the upset in Coach Ks house.
After the huge win over Syracuse the Hoyas are poised to make a jump into the top ten, maybe top five, if they can beat Duke come Saturday. If the Blue Devils want to hold off the Hoyas from gaining ground in the Top 25 they are going to have to rebound from ugly shooting performance against Georgia Tech. Even though the Duke will be favored in this match up, the final Scorewill look more like a #1 and #2 going head to head. All college basketball fans will be in for a treat when these two teams face off on Saturday.
I would take Georgetown in this match up as the Blue Devils are due for a reality check and the Hoyas are ready to make the jump to the countrys elite in the college basketball ranks.
This is written before the lines are posted, however Duke should be roughly a 7-9 point favorite, in which case we’ll glady take the points here in a Game Georgetown can win outright. Georgetown Plus the points
