Today's game

March 13, 2005|By Don Markus


No. 3 seed Duke (24-5) vs. No. 5 seed Georgia Tech (19-10)

Time: 1 p.m.

Where: MCI Center, Washington

Key matchup: Duke's J.J. Redick and Georgia Tech's Will Bynum likely won't guard each other, but it will be interesting to see how they back up their 35-point performances yesterday. Redick is a shooter, and Bynum, generously listed at 6 feet, is a scorer who jumps over defenses. Daniel Ewing probably will guard Bynum, and several Yellow Jackets will be looking to slow Redick.

Outlook: This is familiar territory for the Blue Devils, who will be playing in their eighth straight ACC championship game, meaning Ewing has played in three, and Redick and Shelden Williams each have played in two. But the setting can't be that intimidating for Georgia Tech after most of its players reached the NCAA title game last season.
