FWIW, no predictions -- I am terrible at predictions.
But while I wouldn't hazard a guess to whether Duke wins or loses, I'd bet my car that the Blue Devils come out paying hard and focused (somerthing that don't always do this year). As DBR noted on the front page, this is the kind of game K lives for.
The hardest thing to guess is how well FSU will play. Yeah, they'll play hard and they'll play good defense, but they are the most erratic offensive team in college basketball. Sometimes they make everything (against UNC and us for example). Sometimes they can't make anything (at home against Clemson and Va Tech; on the road at BC). How well FSU shoots will determine whether this is a classic or a stinker.
One additional thought ... if Duke wins tonight, I expect them to come out lackadaisical and unfocused again Saturday against Virginia Tech at home. Probably not enough to cost them the game, but to make it more of a struggle that it should be. If Duke loses tonight, I don't anticipate the same problem.
