Louisville will have their hands full in taking on the Duke Blue Devils tonight, and with it being on the road it will be an even tougher matchup for the Cardinals.

I am looking for Brandon Huntley-Hatfield to continue his string of dominance against the ACC, and that should be no different against Duke tonight. Hatfield had 20 and 11 against the Blue Devils in January and I would expect him to have a similar type of night against Duke tonight as well.

I also expect the Duke guards to play well offensively tonight against Louisville, as they had thier way in the previous matchup. Tyrese Proctor, Jared McCain, and Jeremy Roach had their way with the Cardinals as Proctor even scored a whopping 24 points and they all combined to hit 8 threes against Louisville in their last matchup as well.

Finally, I am looking for the Louisville guards to have a good game against the Blue Devils tonight. Skyy Clark and Ty-Laur Johnson have been a bright spot for this Louisville team, and they both had a good night against Duke earlier in the season. If Louisville wants any chance at winning this basketball game they will need Clark and Johnson to be on their best play for the road win.
