Duke Blue Devils vs Creighton Bluejays takes place in the NCAA 2013 tournament on Sunday night in the last of the March Madness third round games. The game is scheduled to tip off at 9.40 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
No. 2 seeded Duke will be looking to avoid an upset against the No. 7 seeded Bluejays. Both teams worked hard to get through to the third round and both will be hopeful now to push on and get to the latter parts of the tournament.
Much will depend on who comes out on top between Doug McDermott and Ryan Kelly and Mason Plumlee.
This should be a high scoring contest with Creighton averaging 75.4 points per game on average, compared to Duke's 78.3 points per game.
Creighton went out in the round of 32 last yea to North Carolina, and they will be hopeful of avoiding a similar fate this year. However, they will have their work cut out against a strong Duke team, and they will have to be at the top of their game if they are to pull off an upset.
Much has been made of the familiarity between some of the players facing off against each other, with Kelly and McDermott reportedly roommates at the Amare Stoudemire Big Man Camp. Also McDermott and Plumlee played on the same team at the LeBron James Skills Academy, according to Bleacher Report.
That should add some more spice to the game today and it should be a close and intriguing match up.
