The Duke Blue Devils need a feel good win here after losing three of their last four games.

According Duke, Bagley III suffered a mild right knee sprain Thursday and will be held out against Georgia Tech on Sunday as a precaution.

Bagley has come on as a star for the Blue Devils as a freshman, leading the team with 21.2 points and 11.4 rebounds per game. Marques Bolden, a sophomore center who scored eight points at Carolina, offers another possibility while the Blue Devils could also go with Jack White, a strong, athletic defender who rebounds well. Tech is putting up just 65.6 points per game this season while allowing 65.8 per contest. The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets are shooting 33.2 percent from beyond the arc and 71.5 percent from the free throw line. The Yellow Jackets are 11-13 on the season, 4-7 in the ACC and 10-10 against the spread.

The Yellow Jackets were routed 77-54 on Thursday night by Louisville and sit third-from-bottom in the ACC standings. Contrary to Duke, Yellow Jackets games have a tendency to go under the total (60.0 percent).

Coach Mike Krzyzewski switched up his starting lineup Sunday for the first time in 23 games. Wright had nine points and seven rebounds off the bench. Without Bagley, Allen was a lot more aggressive scoring, even while playing point guard. The Blue Devils had a much better effective field goal percentage (0.671 vs. 0.365) and had a much better offensive rebounding percentage (50.0 vs. 30.4).

Georgia Tech is 7-4 ATS at home with 7 unders and 4 overs.

The Blue Devils pressed and ran different zone defenses for the majority of the game.

The Blue Devils rank 13th in blocks per game (5.4) while the Yellow Jackets rank 90th in blocks allowed per game (3.2).
