Following a remarkable offensive performance, the Duke Blue Devils easily dispatched the bottom-dweller of the ACC, the Virginia Tech Hokies, with an 88-56 road victory.

After turning in their largest margin of victory in conference play, Duke (23-3, 10-3 ACC) will return back to the friendly confines of Cameron Indoor Stadium fresh off of a two-game road stand, as they will play host to the upset-minded Boston College Eagles. 

In the first meeting between the two schools, Duke overcame same-day travel and a terrific all-around performance from Boston College (12-14, 4-9 ACC) as they narrowly escaped with a one-point win. 

Can they avoid another down-to-the-wire challenge from the Eagles? 

If so, they will need to follow these five specific keys to ensure themselves of a comfortable triumph over a young but promising Boston College team.
