Poll: Who Should Win ACC Freshman of the Year, Ennis or Parker?
With Syracuse and Duke set to face off Saturday at Cameron Indoor, it will mark the second meeting this season between two of the top freshmen in America and the two top rookies in the ACC: Syracuse’s Tyler Ennis and Duke’s Jabari Parker.
No. 1 Syracuse is 25-1, 12-1 in the ACC and is coming off Wednesday’s shocking OT loss to Boston College.
No. 5 Duke is 21-6, 10-4 and is coming off Thursday’s loss to arch-rival North Carolina in which the Tar Heel fans stormed the court after the win.
Whoever loses Saturday’s game will suddenly be riding a two-game losing streak.
