This is a match between the ACC vs. Big East. The winner takes on either Pittburgh or Xavier.

Most televisions in America will be on CBS watching the first day of Sweet Sixteen games. Others will be on the computer in hopes to see the Wildcats upset the two seed Bluedevils of Duke.

Both teams are going to leave all the energy on the floor at the TD Banknorth Garden. Even though they won't be playing on the traditional Boston floor, which was torn down and stored away with the championship banners that Gerald Henderson's father won with the Celtics.

From past years the outcome of Duke winning doesn't look good, but after holding on against Texas on Saturday, basketball fans have their pick up in the air.

Duke coming off a 68-74 victory to Texas is fired up. Leading them is the sophomore Kyle Singler.

Singler averages 16.5 points per game and 2.4 ast. per game. He is a team player and is a big key to the bluedevils success.

The only problem I think that Duke will have is Nova guard Scottie Reynolds. This guy averages 15.1 points per game and is shoots 41% from the floor.

In the end though I think Duke will knock down the shots and win with a 84-80 win.  Watch out Motor City the Bluedevils are hungry for a championship trophy.
