The Pick:

  • The Blue Devils averagesthe 8th most points per game in the nation at 80.6 points per game. Much of that comes from inside the arc, as the Blue Devils rank just 153rd in three-point attempts per game despite being 24th in the nation in accuracy, connecting at a 37.6% clip.
  • As with most of Coach K’s teams, this is a well-coached bunch that is 7th in the nation in assists per game and 21st in turnovers allowed, so they’re not going to give away the game.
  • Banchero is certainly the name to watch in this game when it comes to future NBA prospects. The freshman is projected to be a top-five pick in this year’s NBA draft thanks to his tremendous athleticism and mobility for his 6’10” 250-pound frame. He creates his own shots rather easily and has good footwork in the paint, so his only weakness, if there is one, is that he’s not yet a knockdown shooter from outside.
  • We already talked about the Blue Devils’ field goal efficiency, so the only real weaknesses on this squad, which could hurt them in later tournament games, are that they rank 126th in the nation in free-throw percentage and the 75.9 points per game they’ve allowed over their last ten games would rank 321st in the nation based on season-long averages.
