This breathtaking Zion Williamson block shouldn't be possible

Williamson replied: "Stop it, bro", in an attempt to douse the media hype surrounding his potential lottery status in the upcoming NBA Draft - whereas teammate Tre Jones, himself a point guard, was damn near fixated that his idol Rajon Rondo was in the stands watching him control the pace.

Long regarded as the most unforgiving defense in the country under Coach Tony Bennett, the Virginia men's basketball team's "pack line" wilted trying to guard No. 2 Duke on Saturday evening.

The Cavaliers trailed by as many as 14 points in the first half, before cutting the deficit to 39-35 at halftime. Notre Dame's Mike Brey had the same wish two weeks ago. The Blue Devils lead the series, 41-34, in Charlottesville (5-3 at John Paul Jones Arena)...

RJ Barrett scored 26 points, Zion Williamson had 18 and No. 2 Duke used an early barrage of 3-pointers to stun No. 3 Virginia and then held off the Cavaliers, 81-71, on Saturday night.

Duke completed a regular-season sweep of Virginia on Saturday to improve to 22-1 overall, 9-1 in the ACC.

A plan to cut off the driving lanes, even if it meant Duke's shooters were wide open, proved a bad idea. "They have some special players in what they can do". Duke will most likely get their points in the paint. James was dribbling a basketball and laughing as the Blue Devils poured out of the locker room for warm-ups. Virginia has 44 turnovers over its past three games despite coming in first nationally in fewest turnovers (9.0). "I practiced off and on all week, and I practiced pretty much the whole time on Friday, and I felt all right". "We all can do a mixture of everything and it just depends on who gets found, who's open and it's a simple as that".

They hit 15 the following game while smashing Army 94-72.

Duke saved its best 3-point shooting night of the season for one of is biggest games on Saturday night.

Mixed in there, along with the 2 of 14 against Virginia, was a 2 of 21 day against Georgia Tech and a 3 of 20 game against Texas Tech.

Thus the very valid idea that Duke's perimeter shooting was a weakness.

Duke scored the first eight points on a pair of 3-pointers by Barrett sandwiching a steal and dunk by Williamson. "We didn't know whether he was going to play or not, but it was definitely a big loss". "We continued to stay with it and keep shooting and trust each other". "I haven't thought about Carolina yet. Wahoos win, but Duke keeps it plenty interesting".

They put that on display the first time that they met this season, but the Blue Devils came out on top. No. 8 North Carolina comes to Cameron Indoor Stadium on February 20. Four of the Blue Devils' final nine games this season are teams ranked in the AP top 15... The ACC and NCAA tournaments follow.
