More About Duke

Kody Malstrom: Duke may not be the powerhouse it once appeared to be, but don’t be fooled. The Blue Devils are still far-and-away the No. 1 team in the ACC.

With five weapons on the floor at all times, the Blue Devils have one of the most versatile offensive attacks in the nation.

ACC freshman phenom Paolo Banchero has star ability, and he will look to lead Duke on a run. He averaged 17.1 points, 7.7 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game during the regular season.

Banchero doesn’t have to do it himself, though, as this team is loaded with talent.

Wendell Moore Jr. has been a viable No. 2 all season, scoring 13.1 points per game. Three others are also putting up points in the double digits, including Trevor Keels, Mark Williams and AJ Griffin.

More About Texas Tech

Doug Ziefel: Mark Adams’ crew is not to be taken lightly. The Red Raiders entered the postseason sporting not only the No. 1 defense in the Big 12 (in terms of KenPom’s adjusted defensive efficiency), but in the country.

They finished third in the Big 12 regular-season standings, but took down every conference foe at least once along the way. Their resume is impressive, with two wins against Baylor, a split series against Kansas and a win against Tennessee. They also hung around against Providence and Gonzaga.

The Red Raiders’ suffocating defense — combined with their half-court style of offense — allows them to dictate nearly every matchup and gives them an opportunity to beat anyone.
