No. 6 Duke aims to tighten up defense vs. Syracuse

Syracuse and No. 6 Duke are connected in large part because of the long friendship of their Hall of Fame coaches.

The first of two scheduled meetings this season comes Saturday afternoon in Durham, N.C., where Duke's Mike Krzyzewski might be inclined to take a page out of Jim Boeheim's Syracuse playbook.

Although Syracuse, not Duke, is known for playing a zone defense, the Blue Devils used a zone in their last game to help fuel a late rally. Although the result was a 79-78 overtime loss to Florida State on Tuesday night, the zone helped them turn a 9-point deficit into an overtime game.
