When: 9:00 PM ET, Wednesday, February 15, 2017
Where: John Paul Jones Arena, Charlottesville, Virginia

The twelfth-ranked Duke Blue Devils will attempt to maintain their strong play and keep their winning streak alive as they prepare to clash with the fourteenth-ranked Virginia Cavaliers in an Atlantic Coast Conference showdown set to be staged at the John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville, Virginia.

This will be the first and only meeting this season between the two conference rivals. The Blue Devils won the last two games against the Cavaliers but barely, as they won by a combined seven points. Historically though, Duke has had the upper hand prevailing in 11 of its 13 last contests versus Virginia.

Duke is tied with Virginia for 4th place in the ACC a game behind North Carolina who it will meet in its last regular season game. After inexplicably losing 84-82 to NC State as a 16 ½ point favorite, the Blue Devils righted the ship with five straight wins including at Notre Dame and most recently against the Tar Heels at home last Thursday.

Despite winning two games against ranked teams in their past six contests, the Cavaliers still managed to lose three games during that span. In their latest tilt against Virginia Tech, the Cavaliers squandered a 14-point halftime lead to finally lose 80-78 in double-overtime. Virginia had soundly beaten the Hokies by 23 points 10 days before the loss.

BetOnline has the Virginia listed as 4½-point favorites and the game's total is sitting at 131½.
