#FakeNunes previews the Syracuse Orange vs Duke Blue Devils

Well at least we don’t have to see Grayson Allen

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Midwest Regional-Syracuse vs Duke Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Look a loss isn’t going to stop the #jokesandgarbage around these parts so let’s get right to it

Opponent: Duke Blue Devils

Location: Durham, NC

Students: 15,892 students who somehow are also all Yankees, Cowboys and Lakers fans. Weird.

The 2019 Fake Nunes Equation of Tumult (#FNET)

You wanted something more ridiculous than RPI well the NCAA gave you NET and we give you the FNET

Head Coach Bench Attire:

This isn’t going to be the game that makes the fashion world tune in but honestly Coach K and Boeheim both dress the part of older HOF coaches.

NCAA Basketball: Duke at Florida State Melina Myers-USA TODAY Sports

Advantage: Duke because Coach K’s probably not going to be as angry on Monday night

NBA 2K Playability:

Talk about no-contest. Zion Williamson, RJ Barrett and Cam Reddish. Look you probably are fighting your friend if they pick only Duke in a video game

Advantage: Duke

Basketball Program Hashtag:

#CuseMode vs #HereComesDuke

It’s nice of the folks from Durham to warn us that they are coming. As for #CuseMode, apparently after all this time we might have determined that it stands for missing lots of 3-pt shots

Advantage: Duke

ACC Social Media Favorites:

Syracuse is going to struggle to win this category all year and honestly with Zion’s dunks it’s understandable for this match-up.

Advantage: Duke

Boeheim Jacket Toss Meter

9.95/10 Boeheim’s jacket hasn’t been able to tap into the magic the last two times it’s been tossed aside. If Zion gets a couple of wide-open dunks it’s probably going to end up hanging out in Chapel Hill before halftime.


Well we got the three Buddy Boeheim 3s prediction right on Saturday, but that was it. This one has the makings of being over early so plan accordingly. Duke 84 Syracuse 65
