Three ACC games on the slate today, but the big one is Duke hosting Miami. The Blue Devils have likely had this one circled since they went to Miami and were taken to the woodshed. There is some talk that Ryan Kelly will play tonight for Duke, which only parallels Reggie Johnson's return when the two teams playing in Coral Gables. Game Sim likes the Blue Devils to win by one point, but it took several hundred sims to move it from a pick'em to deciding a winner. In other words, expect a very close game.
Wake Forest hosts Maryland and Virginia Tech hosts Clemson in the other two matchups today. Check out Game Sim's predictions, previews, links, and more below.

Duke forward Ryan Kelly was in the starting lineup on Saturday night as the third-ranked Blue Devils faced No. 5 Miami.
The 6-foot-11 senior missed the past 13 games with a foot injury. He is averaging 13 points and five rebounds.
Duke spokesman Jon Jackson said before the game that Kelly was set to play against the Hurricanes though it was not known whether he would start.
Ryan Kelly might only have been back for one game, and Duke might only have earned one win on the night, but their recent victory against the Miami Hurricanes proved that the Blue Devils still have what it takes to be a legitimate NCAA title contender. [Continue Reading]
So Duke looks poised to make a run in the ACC Tournament and lock down an NCAA number one seed…. or do they...
Duke's Ryan Kelly sure didn't look like a guy who hadn't played in two months.
The senior scored a career-high 36 points in his return from a foot injury that had sidelined him since January, helping third-ranked Duke beat fifth-ranked Miami 79-76 on Saturday night.
Kelly knocked down 10 of 14 shots -- including 7 of 9 3-pointers -- for the Blue Devils (25-4, 12-4 Atlantic...
Ryan Kelly, meet Kenny Kadji. The Canes forward put the Blue Devils forward on a poster during Saturday night's heavy-weight, ACC showdown.
DURHAM, NC --- The Legend of Ryan Kelly came to life Saturday night.
You couldn't make up what Kelly did against No. 5 Miami even by hiring Hollywood's most creative screen writers.
In his first game back since a foot injury forced him out of the lineup Jan. 8, the Duke senior put on a show nobody could have seen coming. Heck, Kelly said last week his likely return was...
Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski rubbed his magic lamp before Saturday night’s Top 5 encounter with Miami and when the genie appeared, it was easy to see that Krzyzewski’s first wish would be the return to action of 6-11 outside threat Ryan Kelly who had missed the Blue Devils’ previous 13 games with a foot injury. When Krzyzewski’s wish was granted, Kelly stepped up in unbelievable...
Shane Larkin and fifth-ranked Miami stayed shot for shot with third-ranked Duke on its famously hostile home court for most of Saturday night. The Hurricanes just didn't execute well enough in the final minutes to earn a second straight win at Cameron Indoor Stadium.
Larkin had a costly turnover and later missed one of Miami's desperate pair of 3-pointers for the tie on...
If there is one thing that the ACC has been consistent about, its extreme unpredictability (or is it predictability?). A game after Virginia completely dominates Duke in Charlottesville, they go to Boston College and give away the game late. Sounds familiar, right? NC State did it after a big win over Duke. Maryland did it after a big win over Duke. Wake Forest did it...
DURHAM, NC -- Miami didn't beat Duke in Saturday's epic rematch, but the Hurricanes proved they are the best team in the ACC and are a legit threat to win the national championship.
Miami is better not because of the margin differential in the team's two games against each other -- which is plus-24 for the Hurricanes -- nor are they better because they have a two-game...
There has been so much made over the last month and a half about Duke trying to seek some level of revenge against Miami when the two teams meet on Saturday.
Miami comes into Durham confident while the Blue Devils appear unsure of themselves.
Whether it is the fact that Duke lost by 27 points, the fact that the Hurricanes mockingly slapped the floor something that started at...
