Virginia Tech vs. Duke Preview and Prediction
The teams play in the Sweet Sixteen portion of the NCAA Tournament. The Duke Blue Devils take on the Virginia Tech Hokies. A dramatic win over UCF on Sunday gave the Blue Devils a second life while the Hokies cruised by Liberty in the second round.
Against Liberty, the Virginia Tech defense held its ground and it literally came down to which team could better impose their will on the defensive end of the floor. The Hokies held all of the Flames’ starters to single-digit scoring and a combined 38.3 field goal shooting percentage. They will need to do that and better to beat Duke. We got some video highlights of the Virginia Tech Hokies Basketball season.
For Duke, the team that everyone picked Duke to win the national championship this year was the verge of falling in a major upset in Sunday’s game against UCF. See some Duke Blue Devils video highlights from that game and this season.
That was until his two stars, Zion Williamson and RJ Barrett, came through in the clutch to save the team from elimination. Speaking of Zion Williamson, check out some of his ridiculous video reel.
Ballers.online is rooting for the Hokies. Wishing to be wrong, our prediction is Duke 76 VT 67 in a game that will feel more lopsided than the its final score.
