Or something like that. The Orange may finally meet its match, but with Jerami Grant, C.J. Fair and Tyler Ennis, SU has the better variety of offensive weapons. Jabari Parker and Rodney Hood are great, but the Blue Devils will need someone else to have a big game to win.Stephen Bailey: Syracuse 65, Duke 63Devil dodgeSyracuse narrowly edges the Blue Devils in the first of two matchups this season. Tyler Ennis has been too good at the end of games lately, and once the Orange 2-3 adjusts to Duke’s shooters in the second half, the Blue Devils will be in trouble. Trevor Hass: Duke 65, Syracuse 60Blue ballsI think this is the only game Syracuse loses all season – except for maybe Pitt on the road. Last year against Georgetown, with the stakes just as high, SU faltered and couldn’t hit a shot. I think a similar storyline will unfold on Saturday. The best way to beat Syracuse is to hit 3 after 3, and Jabari Parker and Rodney Hood are capable of doing just that. Mike Krzyzewski’s familiarity with Jim Boeheim’s zone will also help the Blue Devils considerably. Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img
