Another bad loss could end up being the final nail in the coffin of their NCAA Tournament chances. They still have games against Virginia, North Carolina and even Louisville to think about. So they can’t afford to drop a home game against the 4-7 Fighting Irish.
Matthew Hurt has to show up in this game to stomp out any hope. He was nowhere to be found in Saturday’s offensive shootout with the North Carolina Tar Heels. All he could muster was seven points and three rebounds in the 91-87 loss.Duke should be in desperation mode.
