The North Carolina State Wolfpack played a complete game in downing Syracuse 73-58 on Wednesday as a three point favorite.

DJ Funderbunk gave NC State 12 points in 18 minutes off the bench followed by Wyatt Walker who chipped in with six points and hauled in nine rebounds.

The second ranked Duke Blue Devils have racked up eight straight wins after squeezing by #20 Louisville 71-69 as a 7.5 point road favorite.

Duke didn’t win easily as expected but continue to make key plays at opportune times at both ends of the floor to win close games.

Zion Williamson dominated for the Blue Devils with 27 points and 12 rebounds with Cam Reddish adding 22 points and three yanks.

RJ Barrett gave Duke 13 points, seven boards and four assists followed by Trey Jones who chipped in with six points and five pulls.

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
