The Blue Devils dive into the big dance tomorrow night with a matchup against a very good Oral Roberts club. The DBR Podcast team went deep into the stats and the videotape to figure out what has allowed ORU to win every game they have played since early January. And at the core of this analysis is two players — scoring guard Max Abmas, a three-point specialist, and 7-5 Connor Vanover, who’s game is different from pretty much any man-mountain you have ever seen.
The podcast crew looks at how Oral Roberts has done against other quality competition and what the matchups will look like when they play Duke. Anyone who thinks this game will be easy is fooling themselves.
After the break, the podcast guys talk about something that has changed about Duke lately — their pace of play. They explain why slowing things down has led to better results.
And before the guys are done with the edition of the most popular Duke podcast around, they also lay out the path for the Duke Devil women as they embark on their own road to the Final Four.
