Pitt is the first team since the ACC went to 18 league games three years ago that has had to play back-to-back road games at North Carolina and Duke (in any order). The Panthers are handling the challenge. This won't happen too often now with unbalanced schedules. A number of ACC schools won't play UNC and Duke on the road in the same season, let alone consecutively.

Duke's Jayson Tatum starting to assert himself with their initial 8 second half points after just two attempts in the first half. Tatum shooting 29% from 3 on the second but has made both his shots from behind the arc this half

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Duke shooting just 16 of 57 from 3-point line in its last 3 home games, including just 3-for-13 in first half vs Pitt. In Krzyzewski's last game before his hiatus, Blue Devils made 16 of 31 3s against Georgia Tech

Pitt appears to be using same offensive strategy it used vs Carolina milking the clock to keep total number of possessions low in the game. Panthers didn't attempt a shot until less than three seconds on shot clock on their first four possessions

Dang, Cameron Crazies don't acknowledge Pittsburgh by name on their cheat sheet for the game

Duke's Mike Krzyzewski back and again tweaking his lineup starting freshman Frank Jackson instead of senior Matt Jones. It's the ninth different starting lineup for the Blue Devils this season -- none have been used for more than five games.

Duke heavily favored in Coach K's return

Mike Krzyzewski returns from back surgery for a tune-up before facing rival North Carolina on Thursday. The preseason No. 1 team went just 4-3 in Coach K's absence. Preview

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

With Duke's Mike Krzyzewski returning Saturday keep an eye on what lineup tweaks he makes. When K left, he inserted Giles as a starter and put Allen at point. The past three halves vs Wake Forest & Notre Dame, Duke has looked better with small lineup with Jones, Jefferson, Tatum, Kennard & Allen.
