The Duke Blue Devils and Xavier Muskateers face off on Friday in a college basketball showdown at the Moda Center.
Duke comes into this game with a 5-1 record overall but they were really tested on Thursday. Against Oregon State the offense only scored 54 points, and they ended up winning by only three points. Kyle Filipowski was the only real bright spot for Duke finishing with 19 points. In this game Duke needs to find a way to get the offense going, and really put pressure on the Xavier defense. The Blue Devils are averaging 73.2 points while their defense is giving up 52.9 points per game. Kyle Filipowski has been the top player this season averaging 15.6 points while shooting 43.1 percent from the field and 36.4 percent from behind the three point line.
Xavier comes into this game with a 4-1 record overall and they are coming off another big win on Thursday. Xavier’s offense scored 90 points against Florida and that was enough to secure the seven point victory. Colby Jones and Souley Boum both finished 22 points. Xavier this season is averaging 85.8 points while their defense is giving up 73.2 points per game. Xavier wants to push the pace and run up the score, but more important in this game is going to be the defense that is going to need to be good. Forward Jack Nunge had another strong game averaging 17 points while shooting 54.8 percent from the field and 55.6 percent from behind the three point line.
Duke struggled to score on Thursday, but this game is going to be a lot different. Xavier’s defense has been an issue all season, and it’s not going to be any different in this game. Look for Duke and Xavier to both run up the score, and that is going to lead to this game being a shootout. Back the over to cash.
