Everything you need to know about the Duke vs. VCU online live stream and TV broadcast, as well as game notes and prediction.


The defending champion Duke Blue Devils are ranked No. 5 and coming off a frustrating loss to Kentucky.

Mike Krzyzewski has some talented young guns running the floor in freshmen Derryck Thornton, Brandon Ingram, Luke Kennard and Chase Jeter. He also has Grayson Allen in the backcourt, who should be hungry to prove his off-game against the Wildcats was no more than a fluke.

Virginia Commonwealth is looking for an upset win against the Blue Devils to remain unbeaten in Will Wade’s first season as head coach of the Rams, who are ranked No. 10 in the nation with 30 steals. To have a shot, VCU will need to force quite a few turnovers.
