KEY GAME INFORMATION
DUKE: Leading scorer Austin Rivers may be gone to the NBA, but Duke returns four of its five starters from its squad that averaged 77.3 points per game, but was unceremoniously bounced in the NCAA Tournament's Round of 64 by Lehigh. The key to this season's team will be senior forward Mason Plumlee, who chose not to enter the NBA Draft after a season in which he averaged nearly a double-double (11.1 PPG, 9.2 RPG). He is joined in the frontcourt by senior Ryan Kelly, who can stretch defenses as a long-range shooter (41% threes). The backcourt is led by senior Seth Curry, but with Rivers gone, he will return to his more natural position off the ball, where he thrives with a better than 40% three-point stroke in his Duke career. That will place a lot of pressure on sophomore Quinn Cook to run the point, after the Blue Devils ranked an abysmal 202nd in Division I with 12.4 assists per game last season. Freshman Rasheed Sulaimon joins the backcourt as a premier defender, while redshirt freshman Alex Murphy is expected to start from day one, giving head coach Mike Krzyzewski a vital 6-foot-8 swing player that the team lacked last season, when they often were forced into defensive mismatches with three-guard lineups.
VIRGINIA TECH: Despite three returning starters, this will be a new-look Hokies squad with Seth Greenberg out and James Johnson in as head coach after the team failed to make the Big Dance yet again, going 4-12 in ACC play. Last year's leading scorer Erick Green (15.6 PPG) is back in the fold after he scored nearly a quarter of the team's points last season (65.1 PPG). Jarell Eddie (9.1 PPG, 4.8 RPG) and Cadarian Raines (5.9 PPG, 3.9 RPG) round out the returning starters. But it will take Johnson more than one year to rebuild this program, with no top recruits joining a squad that struggled to compete last season.

*Duke-Virginia Tech Preview* ============================

By TAYLOR BECHTOLD STATS Writer

Duke (22-3) at Virginia Tech (11-14), 9:00 p.m. EDT

While its ACC regular-season title hopes may have all but vanished, Duke still has a great deal to play for moving forward.

A trip to struggling Virginia Tech might be just what the sixth-ranked Blue Devils need.

The top three scorers in the conference will take the court Thursday night when Duke looks to avoid rare back-to-back losses and continue making its case for a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament.

After a difficult stretch of four games in 10 days ended with an 83-81 loss at Maryland on Saturday, the Blue Devils (22-3, 9-3) hope to come out re-energized following a four-day break.

The Terrapins' Seth Allen made two free throws with 2.8 seconds left to stop the Blue Devils' six-game winning streak.

Mason Plumlee, Duke's leading scorer at 17.6 points per game, will try to bounce back after finishing with a season-low four points and three rebounds against Maryland. The senior averaged 22.3 points and 10.3 boards in his previous three contests.

"This has been an exhausting schedule for our team," said coach Mike Krzyzewski, who needs one more win to reach 950 for his career. "We're playing on fumes and I think you could tell that with Mason."

Trailing first-place Miami by 3 1/2 games with six conference contests left, the Blue Devils are likely to fall short in their bid for their first regular-season league title since 2009-10. Duke, however, still has a solid shot at a top seed in the NCAA tournament.

Krzyzewski's club has been resilient in recent years, not losing back-to-back regular-season games since Feb. 11-15, 2009.

Plumlee and Seth Curry (16.9 ppg) rank second and third among ACC scorers, but the Blue Devils on Thursday will get their first look this season at the nation's top point producer.

Erick Green (25.3 ppg) continued his spectacular senior season for Virginia Tech (11-14, 2-10) on Saturday, but his latest big game wasn't enough to end his team's slump. Green had 29 points and eight assists as the Hokies fell 90-86 in overtime at North Carolina State.

Virginia Tech's eight-game skid is its longest since a 10-game losing streak in 2001-02.

Now it's back to Blacksburg, where Green has averaged 30.5 in Virginia Tech's last four defeats. He shot 34.0 percent and averaged 16.3 points in three losses to the Blue Devils last season, though the Hokies took Duke to overtime in Durham and lost by four in the conference tournament.

"This is every kid's dream - to Duke, national TV, prime time and in front of the whole world," Green said. "This is a big moment, not just for myself but for the whole team."

Curry has averaged 20.3 points in his last six games after finishing with a game-high 25 on Saturday, and he had 14 of his 19 after halftime in the overtime victory against the Hokies last February.

Sophomore Quinn Cook has also come on strong lately, scoring 18 in each of his last two games.

Duke's problems don't lie on the perimeter, though. The Blue Devils have a minus-3.3 rebounding margin in the 10 games since Ryan Kelly went down with a foot injury, with Maryland owning a 40-20 edge on the glass Saturday.

Perhaps the Blue Devils can fare better in Blacksburg. Virginia Tech has been outrebounded by 4.6 per game during its skid.

The Hokies had averaged 59.4 points in this slump prior to falling in Raleigh, and if they want to avoid a ninth loss in 10 games against Duke, they'll likely need scoring from someone other than Green.

Jarell Eddie and Marshall Wood combined for 31 against the Wolfpack, just the third time in the last nine games Virginia Tech has had three players score in double figures.
