These two teams went head to head on December 3rd at Madison Square Garden in the non-conference season with Duke posting the 80-70 victory and covering as a +4 point underdog. The Blue Devils were on fire from the field making 65% of their shots and going 7 of 12 from the three point line. Tyus Jones had 22 points making 7 of 11 shots. Jahill Okafor made 6 of 8 shots for 13 points. Sam Dekker had an off night as he attempted only five shots and made two for five points for the night.

Wisconsin is coming off a monster win in the Final Four as they beat a 38-0 Kentucky Wildcats team 71-64 as a +5 point underdog. Wisconsin is seventeenth in the league shooting hitting 48.1% season to date. One glaring issue in this game is the Wisconsin Badgers team defending the three. They allow 37.6% from beyond the arc ranking 316th in the league. It was a balanced attack in the Badgers win against Kentucky as four of the five starters scored in double digits and the team finished hitting 48% from the floor against one of the best defensive teams in college hoops.

Duke brings in momentum after a 20 point blowout victory against Michigan St in their Final Four win. All eyes will be on the Blue Devils three point shooters as the Badgers weakness is very glaring and one that can be exploited by a Duke team hitting 38.7% from three and ranking 30th in the nation making three pointers. The Blue Devils have defended the three very good this season allowing 31.4% from beyond the arc good for 41st out of nearly 350 division one teams.
