  • In a clash of the last two ACC champions, No. 1 Duke hosts No. 4 Virginia Saturday night at Cameron Indoor Stadium.
  • With the Blue Devils ranked No. 1 in the AP poll and the Cavaliers No. 1 in the Coaches poll, the game is just the fourth No. 1 vs. No. 1 in NCAA history.
  • Cameron Indoor Stadium is hosting its 16th top five vs. top five game and 50th top 10 vs. top 10 — both figures are the most by any venue in college basketball history. Duke is 11-4 in top five games at Cameron and 38-11 in top 10 games.
  • Duke and Virginia are the only teams in the top five in both offensive efficiency and defensive efficiency.
  • The game marks Duke’s sixth versus an AP top 15 opponent — the most nationally this season, and the Blue Devils are 4-1 in those games. The first five were played away from home.
  • Zion Williamson broke Duke’s single-game freshman scoring record with 35 points in the Syracuse game. He is second in the ACC in scoring (21.2) and is the nation’s only player averaging 20+ points and shooting .600+ from the field.
  • Freshman R.J. Barrett continues to lead the ACC in scoring at 23.4 points per game — 12th nationally and third among NCAA freshmen. He scored 32 last Saturday at FSU.
  • Barrett and Williamson are the only pair of teammates in the NCAA each averaging 20+ points per game.
  • Junior Javin DeLaurier has made 19 consecutive field goals — one shy of tying the ACC record set by Duke’s Alaa Abdelnaby during the 1988-89 season (20).
