Zion Williamson Puts on a Show in Classic Duke-UNC Rivalry Game

Zion Williamson Puts on a Show in Classic Duke-UNC Rivalry Game

Duke went just 3-3 in those contests, losing twice to Carolina, once to Virginia Tech and narrowly escaping a game at home against a Wake Forest team they had beaten by 22 earlier in the year.

UNC: The Tar Heels had claimed their first regular-season sweep of the Blue Devils since 2009, a year that ended with Roy Williams claiming his second NCAA championship.

Who do they play next?

Duke trailed by 13 points in the second half but rallied behind Jayson Tatum (24 points) and Luke Kennard (20) for a sixth straight win over UNC in the tournament. DeLaurier may not be a factor in the second half this time either after picking up three first-half fouls.

Goldwire tallied two points and two rebounds in the first half while Vrankovic added a basket and two assists. Duke managed four points in that stretch to take a 67-65 lead at the under-four timeout.

Duke: This tournament has largely been about Williamson's return from the injury that had sidelined him for almost six full games, and what it means for the Blue Devils going forward.

UNC went 14-4 to finish first in the regular season while the Blue Devils were 11-7 and seeded fifth in the ACC tournament, but the Blue Devils won the semifinal matchup at the Barclays Center.

For what it's worth, the last single-season three-game sweep in this rivalry came in 2002, with Duke easily winning all three. Duke started a mere 3-for-10 and missed its first seven triples while the Tar Heels drained nine of their first 16 shot attempts and took control of the pace, but the Blue Devils fought their way back into it with a quick 10-1 run and tied it on a Williamson 3-pointer in the final minute.

New Zealand mosque gunman published manifesto, livestreamed shooting
British tabloid newspapers such as The Daily Mail and The Sun posted screenshots and video snippets on their websites. Peneha, who lives next door to the mosque, said after the gunman drove away, he went into the mosque to try and help.

A potential game-winner for Coby White, a pull-up jumper with just seconds left, rimmed out, and a putback attempt by Little didn't fall, handing UNC its first loss to Duke since March 3 of past year.

The Florida State Seminoles and the Duke Blue Devils will match up in college basketball action from the ACC Tournament on Saturday.

"These two guys have an wonderful will to win", Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said of Williamson and Barrett, "and it makes us coaches look a lot better".

"I don't know how many, but we have been to several Final Fours".

Which leads to two ideas now: The first is whether Carolina gets a No. 1 seed on Selection Sunday. It's also the same floor where Virginia lost a second-round game as a No. 2 seed to seventh-seeded Michigan State in 2015.

North Carolina did not shoot the ball well from beyond the arc (4-for-27), and instead of winning battles inside like it did in the two wins against Duke, the Tar Heels were outscored 50-38 in the paint. "We had some chances to win the game". The Blue Devils later made it back-to-back national championships.

The committee will have a hard time seeding these two teams.
