The Blue Devils did not play last week due to a COVID-19 outbreak. They were forced to postpone games vs. Clemson and Notre Dame, which have not yet been rescheduled.
However, Duke is hoping to return to action on Tuesday night vs. Georgia Tech. According to a report, the Blue Devils expect to have the minimum seven players and one coach available vs. the Yellow Jackets.
Duke was listed as a No. 1 seed on Joe Lunardi’s first Bracketology update of 2022. The Blue Devils are 11-1 on the year and have already secured big wins over Kentucky and Gonzaga.
No other ACC teams received a vote in this week’s poll. However, the conference does seem to be trending in a positive direction — both North Carolina and Virginia Tech are ranked in the top 30 of KenPom.com’s live rankings.
Tipoff vs. Georgia Tech is scheduled for 9:00 p.m. ET on Tuesday.
