The fans at Barclays Center will be treated to a game between the Clemson Tigers and the Duke Blue Devils when they take their seats on Wednesday.

ABOUT CLEMSON (17-14): Mitchell has been a different player over the last eight games – starting with a 23-point effort at Duke – averaging 16.1 over the stretch while shooting 57.7 percent from the field. Blossomgame continues to do his thing in the final games of his collegiate career – scoring at least 16 in six of his last seven contests – and leads the team overall at 17.5, but scored just seven at Duke. Sophomore forward Elijah Thomas (7.7 points), a transfer from Texas A&M, scored 10 on Tuesday and had a season-high 15 on 5-of-7 shooting from the field to go along with nine rebounds at Duke.

ABOUT DUKE (23-8): Junior guard Grayson Allen is fighting through an ankle injury and scored 14 versus North Carolina on Saturday while senior forward Amile Jefferson (foot) had 12 after producing a double-double against Florida State. The Blue Devils are led by sophomore sharpshooter Luke Kennard, a first-team All-ACC pick, who scored 28 on Saturday to push his team-best average to 20.1. Freshman forward Jayson Tatum (16.0 points, 7.3 rebounds) is also a major threat and freshman guard Frank Jackson is averaging 17.7 points the last three games.

Oddsmakers currently have the Blue Devils listed as 6½-point favorites versus the Tigers, while the game’s total is sitting at 144½.

Fifth-seeded Duke begins its quest for a record 20th ACC tournament title after an eventful regular season when it takes on 12th seed Clemson in a second-round game Wednesday at Brooklyn, N.Y. The 14th-ranked Blue Devils lost three – all on the road – of their final four games while hampered by some nagging injuries and coach Mike Krzyzewski told reporters he is hoping they will be at their best in the upcoming NCAA Tournament.

“I think they have been doing a terrific job,” Krzyzewski told the Raleigh News & Observer. “That’s what I told them – keep doing what you are doing. We are right there. All these games are close. All of these teams are so darn good. Just keep trying to win those last few possessions.” For Duke to become the first team to win four games en route to the ACC tournament title, it must first knock off a Clemson team that has been in almost every league game this season despite losing nine times by six points or fewer. Senior forward Jaron Blossomgame and sophomore point guard Shelton Mitchell each scored 22 in the 75-61 victory over North Carolina State on Tuesday in the first round. The Tigers have won three straight contests and gave the Blue Devils all they could handle before succumbing 64-62 in Durham, N.C. on Feb. 11.

Duke was a 90-83 loser in their most recent outing on the road against Tar Heels. They earned a push of the +7-point spread as underdogs.

Last time out for Clemson, they were a 75-61 winner as they battled Wolfpack at home. They covered in the match as a -5.5-point favorite.
