The Duke basketball team might be facing an uphill battle if they want to end their losing streak against Florida State on Tuesday.
Coming off losses to Syracuse and Miami, the Blue Devils might be without their two upperclassmen — Grayson Allen and Amile Jefferson — for an important ACC matchup against the Seminoles. Coach Mike Krzyzewski said they will both be game-time decisions.
Allen was unavailable for Duke’s game against Miami, and the Blue Devils suffered as a result, falling to the Hurricanes 55-50.
Jefferson, meanwhile, has missed two games in January with a foot injury and has been playing through lingering pain since returning. Without these two players on the floor on Tuesday, the Blue Devils are likely in for a long night against a talented and physical Seminoles team.
Allen is the teams leading scorer, while Jefferson leads the team in rebounding. They’ll need both if they want to knock off the No. 15 Seminoles in front of a national audience on ESPN 2.
Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. ET at Cameron Indoor.
