Duke Favored Heavily Over La Salle in Rebounding Matchup
Duke's matchup against La Salle should be an easier contest than the nail-biter against Bucknell. La Salle's primary scorers are all guards, and their two forwards only average 8.6 and 6.6 points and rebounds, respectively. This leaves the Explorers at 353rd nationally in rebounding. Duke is able to capitalize on this lack of size with their length in the passing lanes and in the paint. Their accurate foul shooting, 26th nationally, is yet another edge that should pay off. In conclusion, Duke's length and size should yield a comfortable victory and a cover of the spread.
