The Pick:

  • The Blue Devils average the 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.
  • That will be an interesting battle of unstoppable force meets an immovable object as this Red Raiders team lives and dies with defense. They are the #1 ranked defense in the country by KenPom and also support that with a respectable 64th-most efficient offense in the country.
  • While the Red Raiders do defend well in every facet of the game, they are 63rd in the nation in three-point percentage allowed, so there could be some openings for the Blue Devils to hit from deep.
  • The Red Raiders, however, are not a particularly good shooting team, ranking 288th with a 31.4% mark from downtown. We saw that be an issue in the second round against Notre Dame, when they shot just 26.7% from deep and 35.6% on the game and allowed the Fighting Irish to keep it a close game.
  • The Red Raiders also want to play slow. They are 211th in adjusted tempo, while the Blue Devils come in slightly faster at 167 but neither one of these teams is flying up and down the court, which is also why they are both so efficient on offense.
  • 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. Except that they are 126th in the nation in free-throw percentage, which could be an issue in a tight game.
