SU’s comeback attempt against North Carolina Wednesday night fell just short, depriving them of the type of win that could cement their status in the NCAA Tournament.
A win on the road against an even higher ranked Duke team tomorrow night would all but assure the Cuse that they’ll be dancing next month.
Following the loss to North Carolina, the Orange have actually dropped 3 of their last 4 home games.
However, fortunately for their NCAA Tournament hopes, they’ve balanced that out by winning 3 of their last 4 on the road.
Cameron Indoor Stadium is an entirely different animal, of course, especially with the Blue Devils having won 4 straight games despite the absence of lottery pick Marvin Bagley.
The Blue Devils’ only home loss came by 2 points to Virginia.
Tip-off is at 6 o’clock on ESPN.
