Duke basketball score vs. Georgia Tech: Live updates from vital … – The Fayetteville Observer

It’s no secret that Duke basketball has struggled on the road this season.
The Blue Devils (14-5, 5-4 ACC) are 10-0 at home, 3-2 in neutral site games and 1-4 – nearly 0-5 – in true road games, and travel to Atlanta on Saturday at 3 p.m. for a must-win matchup against a struggling Georgia Tech squad.
The Yellow Jackets (8-12, 1-9 ACC) have lost six in a row, including five of those by 10 points or more. Duke’s most recent road loss, a 78-75 decision to Virginia Tech on Monday, snapped a seven-game losing streak for the Hokies.
Currently, there are eight teams ahead of Duke in the standings with first-place Clemson (17-4, 9-1) holding a 3.5-game lead over the defending regular-season champion Blue Devils. A loss to Georgia Tech would drop them to .500 in league play with a four-game gauntlet of Wake Forest, UNC, No. 20 Miami and No. 7 Virginia next on the schedule.
Saturday’s game will take place at 3 p.m. on ACC Network.
