Bare KnucksAnalyst IFebruary 11, 2009

Rasheed Wallace and Jerry Stackhouse look to knockout a struggling Duke team tonight. The unranked Duke Blue Devils lost Coach K earlier in the season when he took a leave of absence. Coach Gaudet has taken over the squad and so far, has been struggling. Coach Dean Smith has lauded Duke as being a “national championship contender” despite their lack of a Top 25 Ranking.

UNC looks to get another win tonight to improve to 7-1 in the ACC which would give them a first-place tie with Maryland. However, Duke is playing for their first ACC win this season.

Cherokee Parks is expected to have his hands full guarding a potential NBA player, Rasheed Wallace.
