The second-seeded Duke Blue Devils will attempt to continue the hot hand and reach yet another Sweet Sixteen as they prepare to meet the seventh-seeded South Carolina Gamecocks in an East Region second round showdown set to be staged on Sunday at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, South Carolina.

Although they beat the Marquette Golden Eagles by 20 points, the Gamecocks were forced to rally from a 5-point deficit early in the second half to secure their first first round win since 1973. They also reached the Sweet Sixteen that year and the two years prior to that.

The Blue Devils continued their hot streak in the first round and did their backers proud by covering the numbers in an 87-65 win over the Troy Trojans on Friday. The Blue Devils have now won five straight and three of the victories came against such luminaries as Notre Dame, North Carolina and Louisville.

The five-time Champions and South Carolina are on the complete opposite when it comes to both sides of the ball with Duke capable of lightening up the scoreboard against a Gamecocks squad that specializes on defense. Both teams are ordinary in the rebounding department. The winner will either face USC or Baylor in the Sweet Sixteen. Duke takes it and covers the 7 ½ point spread.

BetOnline has the Duke listed as 7½-point favorites and the game's total is sitting at 142.
