Virginia Tech prepares to play at Duke

It's Friday, so here's some reading to start a big, big weekend.

Virginia Tech plays at No. 6 Duke on Sunday. The Hokies are one of the surprise teams of the Atlantic Coast Conference, thanks in part to the play of guard Malcolm Delaney. He leads the league in scoring at 20.2 points as the Hokies will be looking for their sixth win in a row on Sunday .

Meanwhile, here's a really interesting read in the Chronicle, the Duke student newspaper. Alex Faranoff took to KenPom.com and charted the efficiency margin of every Duke game going back to 2004 and found that Duke teams have a tendency to fade down the stretch in terms of efficiency per possession. Maybe the Hokies will wear them out? We'll see.

Krzyzewskille, the tent village named for Coach Mike Krzyzewski, has been a ghost town this season. But I'd imagine there will be at least some excitement around Cameron Indoor Stadium on Sunday. The Hokies contingent will certainly be excited about the match up.
