There's really no question UConn is going to win this game, it's just a question of by how much. UConn is not only super talented but gets to play the first two games on its home court.
Duquesne is a very good defensive team that's going to try and control the pace of this game, but we've seen UConn beat the hell out of teams that are better than the Dukes. The Huskies are easily the better team at both ends and it helps that their home crowd is behind them.
UConn wins in another blowout.
