Current Records: NC State 9-8; Duke 13-2
What to Know
The NC State Wolfpack's road trip will continue as they head to Cameron Indoor Stadium at 2 p.m. ET Saturday to face off against the #8 Duke Blue Devils. The Wolfpack aren't expected to win, but seeing as the odds didn't stop them last game, maybe the squad has another upset up their sleeve.
NC State strolled past the Louisville Cardinals with points to spare on Wednesday, taking the matchup 79-63. Guard Terquavion Smith was the offensive standout of the contest for NC State, shooting 6-for-9 from beyond the arc and finishing with 24 points and five rebounds.
Meanwhile, while not quite a landslide, the game between the Blue Devils and the Wake Forest Demon Deacons on Wednesday was still a pretty decisive one as Duke wrapped it up with a 76-64 victory on the road. Duke's forward AJ Griffin was one of the most active players for the team, picking up 22 points.
NC State is expected to win this handily, but they should have beaten the Wright State Raiders Dec. 21 easily too and instead slipped up with an 84-70. In other words, don't count Duke out just yet.
