Three things to know

▪ Wednesday will mark Coach K’s last game before he takes a leave of absence to have surgery on his lower back. It’ll be his fifth surgery since April 2015.

▪ Duke wants to respond from its bad loss to Virginia Tech, where only one player, Luke Kennard shot over 50 percent.

▪ How the Blue Devils play can help set the tone for their next few ACC games. They opened poorly but could do well against Georgia Tech, which could translate to a good game against Boston College on Saturday.
