A quick turnaround: How to watch, stream Duke vs. Miami ACC men’s basketball on Monday
Duke’s 63-57 win over North Carolina on Saturday gave the improving Blue Devils three consecutive wins, but a challenge to handle if they want to run their winning streak to four.
A game at No. 23 Miami looms just 48 hours later, on Monday at 7 p.m.
“We have a quick turn around here,” Duke coach Jon Scheyer said following the win over UNC. “So we know we have to enjoy this one tonight and learn from it and then move on very quickly.”
Duke (17-6, 8-4 ACC), winner of four of its past five games, already owns a win over Miami at Cameron Indoor Stadium last month. The Blue Devils held on to top the Hurricanes, 68-66, on Jan. 21.
Duke enters Monday’s rematch just behind Miami (18-5, 9-4) and N.C. State (19-5, 9-4) in the ACC standings. The Hurricanes and Wolfpack are tied for fourth place behind Clemson (18-6, 10-3), Virginia (17-4, 9-3) and Pittsburgh (16-7, 9-3).
The last time the schedule called for Duke to play on a Monday after playing two days earlier, Virginia Tech knocked the Blue Devils off, 78-75, in Blacksburg, Virginia, on Jan. 23.
That’s the same night freshman forward Dariq Whitehead suffered an injury to his lower left leg that’s kept him out of uniform during Duke’s three-game winning streak. Scheyer said the 6-7 Whitehead is progressing but experienced some stiffness while practicing on Friday while hoping to be cleared to play against UNC.
His status for Monday night’s game at Miami is yet to be determined.
“He’s got a bright future ahead and we’ve got games to play,” Scheyer said. “I don’t want to make this about one game. I know it’s hard for him sitting and watching. But we’ll get him fully back 100%, whatever that means, in the short term here. Can’t wait to get them out there.”
