MIAMI, FL - JANUARY 07: Braian Angola /

The Miami Hurricanes host number seven Duke Monday night in what should be the biggest game at the Watsco Center this season. Miami has played well at home against Duke over the last few years. They have won three of the last four against the Blue Devils at the Watsco Center.

Sophomore guard Bruce Brown was the star in last season’s 55-50 victory in Coral Gables. He was the only Miami Hurricanes player in double figures. Brown scored 25 points in the Hurricanes victory.

Miami also won 80-69 in 2016 and 90-63 at home in 2013. The Hurricanes split the first two of three straight games against ranked teams. Miami defeated 23rd ranked Florida State 80-74 last Sunday and lost to 19th ranked Clemson on Saturday.

The Blue Devils enter the game having won two in a row and four of their last five. The won their two games against Pittsburgh and Wake Forest last week by a combined 53 points. Duke has wins this season against Michigan State, Florida and Florida State.

The Blue Devils have five players averaging in double figures. All the attention has been on Freshman Center Marvin Bagley III. That has probably helped take a lot of the pressure and attention away from Senior Star Grayson Allen.

Bagley is 14th in the country averaging 22.1 points per game and third in rebounding at 11.7. He will be a challenge for Dewan Huell and Ebuka Izundu inside. Backup center Rodney Miller might see more playing time than usual.

  • Allen’s numbers are up across the board from last season. He is the sole Senior in a starting lineup that is made up of four Freshman. He is averaging 15.6 PPG, 3.8 RPG, 4.5 APG and 1.2 steals.

    Duke has used the same starting five in all 17 games this season. Wendall Carter has given Duke a tough one-two punch inside. He is averaging 13.8 PPG and 8.8 RPG. His classmates Trevon Duval and Gary Trent Jr. make up the Blue Devils backcourt.

    The challenge of going up against the Duke Freshmen, playing in front of their home crowd and facing the Blue Devils, in general, should have the Miami Hurricanes up for the game.

    Brown and Huell were prized Freshmen for the Hurricanes last year and Lonnie Walker and Chris Lykes have been for Miami this season.

    The game also has national importance. ESPN sending Sean McDonough and Dick Vitale to Miami gives it national importance. If it had been a Saturday game we surely would have seen the ESPN Gameday crew come to Coral Gables for the second time this school year.

    The game also takes on added importance for Miami in the RPI. Duke is the top-ranked teams in the RPI and a win against the Blue Devils win significantly help the Hurricanes with their number 20 RPI ranking.
