It's likely the biggest night of the season in College Park, as the rival Duke Blue Devils come calling for their annual visit to the Comcast Center. Mike Krzyzewksi's club will be without a couple players, however, as both Quinn Cook and Michael Gbinijie did not travel with the team and remained in Durham because of illness. Cook, along with Tyler Thornton, is a local product who played at DeMatha before transferring to Oak Hill.

It has to be disappointing to miss out as he had to be looking forward to coming home and playing in front of friends and family. But Duke's loss is Maryland's gain, with Cook averaging more than 12 minutes and five points per game at the point guard spot. Gbinijie averages a little more than eight minutes a game.
We'll have plenty more on this game throughout the day, so keep it locked to the Duke Vs. Maryland StoryStream. For more on the Terps, please head over to Testudo Times, and for more on this and every college basketball game, check out the SB Nation college basketball hub.
