The Duke Blue Devils and the Elon Phoenix will both be gunning for a victory on Wednesday when they meet at Greensboro Coliseum.

ABOUT ELON (7-4): The Phoenix face a tall task in taking on the Blue Devils, and it will be even tougher if senior guard Luke Eddy (11.4 points, 4.3 assists) misses his second straight game with a knee injury. Eddy is one of five players who average double digits in points, with forwards Brian Dawkins (12.5 points, 4.8 rebounds) and Tyler Seibring (12.4, 6.5) leading the way, but Elon doesn’t get much production from its bench. The Phoenix matched a season high with 14 3-pointers against St. Peter’s, as Dawkins and Steven Santa Ana each knocked down four shots from long range.

ABOUT DUKE (11-1): The Blue Devils are one of the most efficient offensive teams in the country, and they just keep adding more weapons. Luke Kennard (20.3 points, 5.8 rebounds) and Grayson Allen (17.2, 4.8, 3.6 assists) lead five players who average double digits in scoring, while Tatum (14.8 points, 7.5 rebounds) has made a major impact in his first four collegiate games. Amile Jefferson (14.3 points, 11.1 rebounds) has been a monster on the boards of late, collecting 10 or more rebounds in three straight contests – including a career-high 18 on Monday.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Blue Devils listed as 26-point favorites versus the Phoenix, while the game’s total is sitting at 152 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40.

Elon was a 68-53 winner in their most recent outing on the road against Peacocks. They covered the +5-point spread as underdogs.

Duke won its last outing, a 65-55 result against Tigers on December 19. They failed to cover in that game as a -28-point favorite.

Duke looks to close out the non-conference portion of its schedule on a positive note when it takes on in-state rival Elon on Wednesday at the Greensboro Coliseum. The fourth-ranked Blue Devils have won seven straight in the series dating to the Phoenix’s last win in 1922, including victories in each of the last four seasons.

It’s a final chance to tune up before the grueling ACC schedule for the Blue Devils and freshman big man Harry Giles, who made his collegiate debut with four scoreless minutes in Monday’s 65-55 win over Tennessee State. The nation’s top-rated recruit, Giles has been sidelined since having arthroscopic knee surgery in the preseason, while fellow freshmen Jayson Tatum and Marques Bolden have played just four games apiece since returning from injuries of their own. “These young guys have to keep learning,” Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski told reporters. “I told someone in the room after one of the last games that we’re in October and not December with our team, and that’s part of our growth process.” The Phoenix snapped their three-game skid with a 68-53 win at St. Peter’s on Sunday.
