Back atop the poll for the first time in two seasons, the Blue Devils play the first of two home games on consecutive nights Wednesday versus Cornell. With final exams finished, Duke (9-0) takes the court for the first time since a 90-67 win over Temple on Dec. 8. The Blue Devils will do so as the nation's top-ranked team after moving up one spot following Indiana's 88-86 overtime loss to Butler on Saturday. More from NBC Sports Fresh off a long break for their exam period, the Blue Devils return to the court to face back-to-back games against Cornell and Elon. Duke will face these next two opponents as the newly ranked top team in the nation. First up will be the Big Red of Cornell. Following a gauntlet of early season match ups against top flight competition, the Blue Devils will end the year with several contests in which the goal will be to improve and refine the system and rotation. Duke ail start that process against a Cornell team that isn't expected to put up much of a fight. Redshirt freshman Marshall Plumlee is expected to make his season debut against the Big Red after battling a foot injury since early October. Additionally, it's likely that Duke will be resting Seth Curry's injured leg over the next two games, which opens minutes on the wing for players such as Amile Jefferson and Alex Murphy.   More from TheDevilsDen.comDukeNameGPMinsPtsAstsRbdsStlsBlksTOsFG%3P%FT%Off Eff Mason Plumlee 9 33.7 19.2 1.4 11.3 0.6 1.7 2.6 61.1 0.0 73.1 62.7 Seth Curry 8 30.6 16.1 1.0 1.9 0.5 0.4 1.4 46.3 40.0 89.7 71.5 Ryan Kelly 9 30.6 13.1 1.7 5.2 0.9 2.1 0.9 46.0 35.7 73.7 72.5 Rasheed Sulaimon  9 31.8 12.3 2.8 4.0 0.8 0.1 1.3 41.9 40.0 81.0 74.3 Quinn Cook 9 31.9 10.9 5.7 3.4 1.6 0.2 2.9 45.7 48.3 80.0 102.3 Amile Jefferson  9 8.8 3.3 0.3 1.7 0.3 0.3 0.2 52.2 0.0 54.5 72.9 Tyler Thornton 9 21.7 3.3 3.0 2.4 2.0 0.1 1.8 39.1 38.1 80.0 120.5 Josh Hairston 9 9.3 1.6 0.2 2.2 0.1 0.2 0.1 46.2 0.0 50.0 68.9 Alex Murphy 7 5.7 2.1 0.0 1.6 0.1 0.3 0.4 42.9 33.3 50.0 45.5 Todd Zafirovski 1 6.0 2.0 0.0 1.0 0.0 1.0 0.0 50.0 0.0 0.0 35.5 Marshall Plumlee00. Andre Dawkins00. Rodney Hood

Expect Some Rust for Duke tonight as they host Cornell

It has been so long since Duke last played a game that I may have to look at a roster to know who exactly is playing on this year’s team. Okay maybe not that long. Duke fans are hoping to get their first real glimpse of Marshall Plumlee in real game action this season. But it has been a number of days since the Blue Devils dispatched the Temple Owls before going on break for...

Duke has begun preparations for the 2012 Belk Bowl which will be played in Charlotte on December 27. After a disappointing November saw the Blue Devils drop all three games they played in...

ACC Bubble Analysis for 12/17

Not a lot of movement this week with the lack of games, but the Duke Blue Devils do move to top of both the AP and Coaches polls after Indiana’s loss. In my ranking system, any RPI top (100) win is a good win and any RPI top (50) obviously worth more. Any losses outside the RPI top (100) is considered a bad loss, and outside the RPI (150) are even more damaging. I’m not counting...
