Duke is a young and inexperienced team. The Blue Devils have not won a game against a team with a winning record and they nearly lost to Boston College, coming away with an 83-82 win. The Blue Devils have had at least six games canceled or postponed for Covid reasons. They now must go on the road against a Hokies team with some strong offensive depth and a solid defense. The bench will once again be the difference for Virginia Tech as their second-leading scorer comes off the bench.
