In the semifinals of the Maui Invitational on Tuesday, the sixth-ranked Duke Blue Devils will put their unbeaten record at the tournament (13-0 all time) on the line when they take on the No. 15 Michigan Wolverines. Duke is 5-0 on the season and picked up their 13th win in the tournament with a 77-67 win over Tennessee on Monday. Michigan just unseated the No. 8 Memphis Tigers on Monday with a 73-61 win, and are looking for their third title in Maui, while Duke is looking for their fifth.
Michigan is also seeking no small amount of revenge from last season's second-round NCAA tournament elimination, where they dropped a 73-71 contest. Michigan never took the lead in that game, but came within one point twice in the final 1:30, rallying from a 15 point deficit. The 4-0 Wolverines will he the first ranked opponent that the Blue Devils will face this year.
The game will be at 7:00 p.m. eastern on ESPN, and the TV announcers will be the usual team of Sean McDonough, Jay Bilas and Bill Raftery. UCLA and the No. 14 ranked Kansas will be on at 9:30 on ESPN to decide the other half of the tournament finals.
