The Duke Blue Devils and the Clemson Tigers meet in college basketball action from Littlejohn Coliseum on Tuesday. 

Duke enters this one at 15-1 so far. The Blue Devils are riding a nine-game winning streak right now, beating Winthrop, Michigan State, Virginia Tech, Wofford, Brown, Boston College, Miami, Georgia Tech and Wake Forest in that time. 

In the win over the Deacons, Duke’s lead scorer was Tre Jones with 23 points, five assists and three rebounds. Cassius Stanly added 16 points and four boards there, while Jack White and Joey Baker each had 11 points. 


Over on the Clemson side, they’re 8-7 overall. After falling in consecutive games versus Yale and Miami-FL, the Tigers have won their last two versus NC State and North Carolina. 

In the OT win over the Tar Heels, Clemson’s Aamir Simms posted 20 points with eight rebounds and six assists. Both John Newman and Tevin Mack supplied 17 points there, combining for four assists and 10 rebounds. 

The over is 6-1 in the Tigers’ last seven Tuesday games and they’re 1-4 ATS in their last five Tuesday games. Clemson is 6-1 ATS in their last seven after a straight-up win and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 home games. 

Meanwhile, the Devils are 4-1 ATS in their last five Tuesday games and 4-1 ATS in their last five road games. Duke is 6-2 ATS in their last eight overall and the over is 10-4 in the last 14 Tuesday games. 

Since their lone loss this season to SFA, the Blue Devils have been rolling right along. Duke has put up at least 73 points in each of those nine games, and really hasn’t had much trouble with any team during that time. 

As for Clemson, they’ve been pretty choppy scoring-wise lately (45 versus Yale, 54 versus SC, etc.) but have posted 160 combined points in their last pair. Still, I don’t think Duke will have too many issues here.
