Look Ahead: No. 1 Duke and No. 2 Michigan Are At Risk This Weekend

Top game: There are matchups that’ll feature two higher-ranked teams than the showdown between No. 1 Duke and No. 20 North Carolina State, but Raleigh is still the place to be Saturday because that’s where a game will be played between intense rivals with perfect ACC records.

The nation’s top-ranked team is on the road, at risk and down its third-leading scorer who is (at least statistically) its best 3-pointer shooter, so it’ll be interesting to see whether the Blue Devils can beat the Wolfpack without Ryan Kelly.

If so, Duke, in what was projected by some as a “down year,” will move to 16-0 with victories over the schools currently ranked third, eighth, 16th, 21st and 23rd in the Top 25 (and one). Not bad, Coach K. Not bad at all.

Another interesting matchup: Regardless of what happens Saturday between the Blue Devils and Wolfpack, I’ll be up early Sunday for a 6:35 a.m flight out of RDU (wish me luck) so that I can make it to Value City Arena in time for an afternoon game between No. 2 Michigan and No. 15 Ohio State. Is this where the Wolverines take their first loss?
