Duke Blue Devils vs Albany Great Danes takes place in the NCAA 2013 tournament second round on Friday. This game will kick off the 16 March Madness match ups scheduled to take place on Friday, and it should be an exciting one. The game is scheduled to tip off at 12.15 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
Duke are the No. 2 seeds in the Midwest region, and will enter this game as big favorites to knock out Albany.
Although the No. 15 seeds Albany will be going all out to try and cause an upset, they will know they will have to halt some great players in the Duke side, as well as be on top of their own offensive game just to compete.
However, Duke will remember losing their first NCAA game last year as No. 2 seeds, when they went out to Leigh 75-70. They will be weary at the favorites tag again this year and that tenseness should ensure they do not slip up to underdogs for a second year in a row.
Albany have not had a fantastic year - they finished fifth in the America East, losing seven games in total in what many analysts consider to be one of the worst Division 1 conferences.
Duke have Ryan Kelly fit and ready to go after being out for much of the regular season, and he will be a big boost in the Blue Devils' quest to take down Albany today.
