It's a big Saturday in college basketball, and No. 1 Duke at No. 20 NC State (noon ET on ESPN) is one of Saturday's featured matchups. Here are some pregame thoughts:

Duke (15-0) is 2 wins shy of matching record for most consecutive wins to start season under Couch K. Tough one At NC State today noon ESPN

Tremendous opportunity for Duke freshman Jefferson and Murphy. In CBB you need to be ready when your number is called. Tough match up.
