The DBR Podcast crew is here to break down everything you need to know about the big game this weekend with the Tarheels.

Ordinarily, this game is huge because both teams are jockeying for position at the top of the ACC, but this year it is big because one team will walk away from it with an important step forward in the effort to get a NCAA bid and the other will have taken another step backwards.

With that in mind, the guys break down the analytics, the players, and who each team has played so far in this crazy season. And their preview also includes some words from Coach K about the matchup.

The podcast crew reads between the lines to hear some interesting analysis of the psyche of this year’s very young Duke team. We wrap it all up with a deep dive into the NCAA NET rankings to see how Duke’s resume is shaping up and what can be done to improve it
