Duke is one of college basketball’s biggest ratings draws every year, but the Blue Devils have been dominating ESPN this season. Duke Basketball released this infographic on Facebook today, revealing that three of the top four college basketball games on ESPN this season have featured Duke. Interestingly, two of the top three were the epic Duke-Syracuse match-ups.
If we’ve learned anything from this, it is that the ACC really needs to find a way to match up Syracuse and Duke twice a year. As long as Jim Boeheim and Mike Krzyzewski are on the sidelines, that game is a major draw. It probably won’t ever be bigger than Duke-UNC from a historical standpoint, but if this year is any indication, it may get close.
