The total is set at 158 points.

Ranked as the top team in college basketball, the Duke Blue Devils have been near impossible to stop this season.

Williamson's latest aerial act came in the second half of the Blue Devils' 87-68 thumping of the Tigers on Saturday at Cameron Indoor Stadium in Durham, N.C.

Zion Williamson missed a dunk against Wake Forest on Tuesday night, but he did just about everything else in another dominant Duke win.

Guy tallied career highs in points (30), rebounds (8) and 3-pointers (7) against Marshall.

But in addition to the scoring, Williamson had 10 rebounds, 5 assists, 4 steals and a blocked shot, while dominating the paint on both ends of the court. Marques Bolden accounted for 11 points plus five caroms as a reserve.

Guy averaged 25.5 points and 6.5 rebounds as No. 4 Virginia posted wins against Marshall (100-64) and No. 9 Florida State (65-52). Now they are getting into ACC play, which includes going for a true road game the first time this season, facing the Wake Forest Demon Deacons. The Demon Deacons were outscored 59-51 in the second half as the hosts pulled away. Wake Forest shot 27-of-68 from the floor, 9-of-22 from 3-point distance and 16-of-22 from the free throw line. Brandon Childress and Sharone Wright Jr. chipped in 12 points apiece. He also dished out three assists. Chaundee Brown added 10 points plus six boards and two steals. "Overall, he was good, but he has to keep learning, as we are only fourteen games in". Duke is 6-1 ATS in its last seven Tuesday games.

On the surface, it appears that Duke is far more talented than Wake Forest in this matchup.

Wake Forest has only one top-100 victory this season, that being a 67-63 home triumph over Davidson back on December 17.
