The nation has just two remaining undefeated teams. I'll see one play Saturday in Raleigh, N.C., then wakeup Sunday, fly to Columbus, Ohio, and watch the other. So this is going to be a good and busy weekend. Let's prepare ourselves with the Look Ahead.
Top game: There are matchups that'll feature two higher-ranked teams than the showdown between No. 1 Duke and No. 20 North Carolina State, but Raleigh is still the place to be Saturday because that's where a game will be played between intense rivals with perfect ACC records. The nation's top-ranked team is on the road, at risk and down its third-leading scorer who is (at least statistically) its best 3-pointer shooter, so it'll be interesting to see whether the Blue Devils can beat the Wolfpack without Ryan Kelly. If so, Duke, in what was projected by some as a "down year," will move to 16-0 with victories over the schools currently ranked third, eighth, 16th, 21st and 23rd in the Top 25 (and one). Not bad, Coach K. Not bad at all.
