DUKE: Duke made an Elite Eight run last season before running into eventual national-champion Louisville on a team led by three seniors: Mason Plumlee, Seth Curry and Ryan Kelly, all of whom are now gone to the NBA. But this season's squad has no shortage of talent, highlighted by incoming freshman Jabari Parker, who will be integral to an offense that fans can expect to be high-paced and resemble head coach Mike Krzyzewski's Olympic teams that opted for smaller and more athletic lineups. Parker, a 6-foot-8 wing, will likely start at the four with sophomore Amile Jefferson (4.0 PPG, 2.9 RPG in 12.7 MPG) at the five. The team's real strength, though, is on the perimeter where it will be bolstered by 6-foot-8 wing Rodney Hood, who will be a key to the offense after sitting out last season while transferring from Mississippi State. He was an All-SEC freshman in 2011-12, averaging 10.3 PPG and 4.8 RPG. Parker and Hood's height and athleticism should help make up for Jefferson not being a true center, while 7-footer Marshall Plumlee will play a reserve role. Also on the perimeter, Rasheed Sulaimon (11.6 PPG, 37% 3-pt FG) should be poised to improve in his sophomore campaign, already having demonstrated he can be an effective breakdown scorer. Quinn Cook (11.7 PPG, 5.3 APG) will run the show again, though he must be more consistent than he was as a sophomore. The final key piece could be Andre Dawkins, who rejoins the team after sitting out last year for personal reasons. He is one of the best 3-point shooters in the nation when he's on his game (40% 3-pt FG in career), though he could be challenged for minutes by both Tyler Thornton and freshman Matt Jones.
SYRACUSE: Despite losing three starters, Jim Boeheim's squad may be the most ready of the three new ACC additions to immediately compete. The losses of Michael Carter-Williams, James Southerland and Brandon Triche will be difficult to adjust to for a team that made a Final Four run, but the team's leading scorer C.J. Fair (14.5 PPG, 7.0 RPG) is a strong weapon on both ends of the floor and should be able to pick up his production more. The team also has some untapped talent in the post in Rakeem Christmas (5.1 PPG, 4.6 RPG in 20.8 MPG) and DaJuan Coleman (4.8 PPG, 4.0 RPG in 12.7 MPG) who both played well in fluctuating minutes throughout the season. Perhaps most important for this team is a strong recruiting class headlined by PG Tyler Ennis, who has the potential to be even better than Carter-Williams if everything breaks right. Sophomores Trevor Cooney (3.4 PPG in 11.2 MPG) and Jerami Grant (3.9 PPG, 3.0 RPG in 14.3 MPG) will play bigger roles at the two and three spots, but Cooney (32% FG, 27% 3-pt FG) needs to find his stroke on a more consistent basis to earn a starting spot over Duke transfer Michael Gbinije. Freshman Ron Patterson should also factor in for minutes in the unproven backcourt, giving Boeheim no shortage of options when crafting his lineups.

*Duke-Syracuse Preview* =======================

By JOHN KEKIS AP Sports Writer

Duke (17-4) at Syracuse (20-0), 6:30 p.m. EDT

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) -- Students have been camped at Boeheimburg outside the Carrier Dome for nearly two weeks in bitter cold, with a few fans having paid for their Syracuse season tickets by making the shrewd financial decision to sell their seats for home game No. 13.

The head coach simply shrugs.

"I've coached 1,000 games. That's too many games to get excited about one game," said Jim Boeheim, head coach of the unbeaten No. 2 Orange. "It's a 31-game regular season and every game is important, every game counts the same, and you have to approach it that way."

Maybe for the coaches, but not the fans. This upstate New York city is abuzz as it awaits the arrival of No. 17 Duke -the new Georgetown on the Syracuse schedule. Yes, the Carrier Dome will be overflowing on Saturday night on the eve of the Super Bowl, and this key Atlantic Coast Conference game is a big deal.

It will feature two Hall of Fame coaches - and two good friends who have twice won Olympic gold together as colleagues - with a combined 1,914 wins: Duke's Mike Krzyzewski (974) and Boeheim (940), the top two all-time in Division I.

They're also the only coaches in history to win more than 900 games at one school, with the 69-year-old Boeheim ahead in that category at 940 in 38 years at his alma mater and Krzyzewski at 901 in 34 years at Duke.

When Syracuse faced Connecticut in the 2012 Big East quarterfinals, Boeheim and former Huskies coach Jim Calhoun had a combined 1,760 wins.

"It will be an historic game," Krzyzewski, soon to be 67, said. "The fact that Jim and I, total, have won over 1,900 games, it's never been done. He and I talked about it this summer because we worked together the past 10 years with USA Basketball, that every time we go on the court, it will be something special."

Despite those imposing numbers, the two coaches have squared off against one another just twice, and each has one victory. Duke won the last meeting, 80-67, in the 1998 NCAA tournament's South Regional, and Syracuse won the first, 78-76, in the 1989 ACC-Big East Challenge in Greensboro, N.C.

With Syracuse in the ACC now, the teams will double that total this season in a three-week span when the Orange visit Cameron Indoor Stadium later this month.

"Coaching is such a competitive field," Boeheim said. "You're not going to have a lot of friends in coaching because you're trying to beat each other's brains in for the most part."

These two are different. As the architect of the U.S. Olympic basketball team, Jerry Colangelo has a pretty good idea of why the two teams have played each other only twice in the past 25 years.

"There are a lot of reasons why schools play each other and personalities have something to do with it," Colangelo said. "There is so much respect in this relationship that it probably has a bearing on why they haven't played. They want to do things their own way. Why compete with a friend? Why get involved in your own backyard against one of your best friends?

"They've been friends for a long, long time," Colangelo added. "They're two Hall of Fame coaches, two of the most successful coaches in the history of the game. It's going to be exciting to see them compete against one another in the ACC."

Besides the requisite bragging rights for the fans, there's something at stake for No. 2 Syracuse (20-0, 7-0 ACC). The Orange lead the ACC in their first season in the conference and have matched the school record of 20 straight wins to start a season, set two years ago when they lost only once during the regular season.

Duke (17-4, 6-2) is fresh from an impressive 80-65 win at No. 18 Pitt on Monday night and seems to be hitting its stride with a five-game winning streak. The Blue Devils made 13 of 25 3-point attempts in handing the Panthers their first loss this season in the intimidating Petersen Events Center, putting up the most points the Panthers have allowed all year.

Syracuse beat Wake Forest 67-57 on the road Wednesday night, handing the Demon Deacons their first home loss of the season, but it was a struggle. The Orange shot 36 percent and missed a third of their 33 free throws, but again found a way to win like they have so many other times this season.

"For us, we've been good, and (Syracuse has) been really good," Krzyzewski said. "So a lot of people want to see what happens when two really good programs get together and two guys who have been coaching a long time get together. Hopefully, the game will measure up to the buildup."

A year ago, Syracuse's final Big East home game against heated rival Georgetown drew a Carrier Dome record 35,012, and this game likely will break that mark with a projected attendance of 35,446. This will be the third straight home game attendance of more than 30,000, only the third time that's happened since the Carrier Dome opened in 1980.

"It's exciting," said Duke guard Andre Dawkins, the outside threat that can cause big problems for Boeheim's signature 2-3 zone defense. "As fun as it is to ... play in front of our fans, it's also fun to go into someone else's gym where everyone hates you. It's exciting. It doesn't get old for us."

Overall, the school rivalry stands at 4-4. Syracuse also beat the Blue Devils 74-72 in the ECAC Holiday Festival in New York City in December 1971, when Roy Danforth was the Orange head coach and Boeheim's pro career with Scranton in the old Eastern League was nearing an end.

Coincidentally, Boeheim played in the first game between the schools, a 91-81 Duke victory in the NCAA East Region on March 12, 1966, in Raleigh, N.C. In Boeheim's last college game, he scored 15 points, just above his average of 14.6 his senior year.
