The 2014 NCAA basketball live stream and TV schedule for Sat., Feb. 22 has a March Madness feel to it. Front and center on today’s schedule is a possible Sweet 16 match-up that will take place in Durham, NC when Syracuse and Duke face-off Saturday night.
According to a Sportsline report on Feb. 22, both of these teams are coming into this game off of a loss, and are eager to bounce back into the win column. Syracuse may have gotten caught looking ahead to their rematch with Duke earlier this week when they lost to a bad Boston College team 62-59 in OT.
The loss was just the first on the season for the Cuse, but even after a 25-0 start to the season, CJ Fair and the Orangemen know that today’s game is a big one.
''It's still a big game,'' Syracuse forward C.J. Fair said. ''You don't want to lose two in a row.''
Duke is coming off a loss to rival North Carolina just two days ago. However they know that if they play their style game they can beat Syracuse – something the Blue Devils believe they should have done back on Feb. 1.
The Duke faithful will be up for tonight’s game, and the hometown crowd will definitely motivate the Blue Devils, who need to get over their loss to UNC in a hurry.
''Our nose is bloody right now,'' Duke forward Rodney Hood said. ''We've got to wipe it off and get ready for another fight. We've got to move on from it. (Losing to UNC) is a tough one to swallow, but the reality is we've got a really good team coming in on Saturday.''
Las Vegas odds makers believe the Blue Devils will bounce back. Duke comes into this game as a 6 point favorite with the over/under number set at 134.
