The Blue Devils (3-2, 1-0 ACC) have been inactive since beating Notre Dame 75-65 in their lone conference fixture thus far this season due to a combination of Covid-19 positive tests and contract tracing within respective programs.
Duke heads into this game without head coach Mike Krzyzewski after he and his wife were placed into quarantine last Friday because they came in contact with a COVID-19 positive family member. The move is done as a precaution since coach Krzyzewski revealed that he and his wife were both tested negative on Monday.
The Blue Devils will come up against a Boston College side that has lost four of the last five games, including two in a row. The Eagles (2-7, 0-3) went down 76-64 to Louisville last Saturday and has failed to score at least 65 points in three of the past four games.
Wednesday’s game marks the 27th meeting between Duke and Boston College in their overall series, with the Blue Devils leading the head-to-heading meeting 23-3, including an 11-0 record at Cameron Indoor.
