On Feb. 21 at 9:00 p.m. ET, the Duke Blue Devils will travel to play the Virginia Tech Hokies. This is a battle of polar opposites in the standings, but the star power is certainly present.

So what must Duke do to avoid a second consecutive upset?

Point guard Erick Green not only leads the Hokies, but he's first in the nation at 25.3 points per game. On the other end, Duke is led by National Player of the Year front-runner Mason Plumlee.

Star power.

As for the rest of the respective teams, Duke is 22-3 and 9-3 in ACC play. They're also coming off an 83-81 upset loss against the Maryland Terrapins.

Virginia Tech, meanwhile, is 11-14 overall and 2-10 in the ACC. They're coming off of an overtime loss at North Carolina State.

Fortunately for the Blue Devils, there is a formula to avoid yet another upset.
