What channel is the Syracuse basketball game on? (at Duke)

Syracuse basketball (18-10 overall, 7-8 ACC) looks for a big upset road win to give its NCAA bubble chances a jolt when it visits the Duke Blue Devils (23-5, 11-4) on Saturday evening.

The game tips off at 6:15 p.m. at Cameron Indoor Stadium in Durham, North Carolina and will be televised on ESPN and the Watch ESPN app.

Syracuse enters the contest fresh off a 78-74 loss to the North Carolina Tar Heels Wednesday night at the Carrier Dome, before a crowd of 27,165 — the highest attendance for an on-campus college basketball game this season.

A loss would drop Syracuse two games under .500 in ACC play and probably make the Cuse’s last two games of the regular season (at Boston College, and home vs. Clemson) must wins for its NCAA bid hopes.

The Orange have won their last two meetings with the Blue Devils (64-62 in 2016 and 78-75 last year). Both times, Syracuse was also on the bubble and in need of a win.
