Duke's Grayson Allen hasn't been the same since tweaking his ankle against Clemson on Feb. 11. He no longer drives to the basket because of it. He's taken 27 3-pointers the last 4 games, compared to just 12 FG attempts inside the arc. Appears Mike Krzyzewski sitting him down to have him healthier for postseason.


Can Blue Devils sweep Hurricanes?

Duke is 3-4 in road ACC games this season, having finished below .500 in that category only twice in the last 20 seasons. When Miami lost the teams' first meeting in late January, the Hurricanes received no points from reserves. (Saturday, 4 p.m. ET) Preview
