Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski is returning to the sidelines for this game, which should have the Cameron Indoor faithful fired up and ready to go. The game is on national television as well, which always features the Blue Devils in a good spot. Getting Coach K back on the sidelines should be a definite positive for a young Blue Devils team that looks to be rounding into form at this point in the season.
Pittsburgh, on the other hand, is having a tough year. The Panthers are just 12-10 overall and have gone 1-8 in ACC games to this point in the season, they've dropped seven in a row but still have some respectable computer numbers. Pitt has played one of the tougher schedules in the country to date and have played to a 2-3 record against Top 25 RPI teams, beating both Maryland and Virginia already this season. The Panthers can be gritty, but defensively they are terrible and it has shown this season.
Duke finds itself at just 5-4 in ACC play and they have a lot of work to do in order to catch the teams at the top of the conference. Henry Giles and Jayson Tatum both look to be playing better and getting Amille Jefferson back on the floor will make a difference as well.
This game could get away from Pitt early. The Panthers give up more than 77 points per game, which ranks 293rd in the country. With Duke getting Coach K back and playing at home, they pull away for the win here.
