Roles reversed for North Carolina Duke in rivalry matchup

Roles reversed for North Carolina Duke in rivalry matchup

Despite what some may say, Grayson Allen isn't the leader of this team. "If I had to grade it, I'd say it was an F".

Duke, who now finds itself in a tie with Miami for third-place in the league, has just a half-game lead on the Tar Heels with seven conference games left.

When the threes started dropping and the crowd started roaring, the Tar Heels had no issue sustaining the effort that they had sometimes questioned in themselves this season.

North Carolina did enter the night leading the nation in rebounding margin, but it's still hard to believe this group of guys out-rebounded that group of guys.

The Tar Heels used the sweet shooting of junior Kenny Williams and senior Cameron Johnson to help them erase the Duke lead. The Tar Heels defeated the Blue Devils at Dean E. Smith Center. "We knew that was one of their strengths, and we failed to even limit it". "We just have to keep working at it". "They're crashing from the perimeter, so it's all of our responsibility".

We had a three-point lead and we missed about 77 shots in a row it seemed like. The good news for the Blue Devils is they won't face an offense as potent as North Carolina's (15 in adjusted offensive efficiency heading into Thursday) before the Big Dance.

"Marques did well", Krzyzewski said.

Perkins got off to a slow start offensively but repeatedly kicked the ball out to open shooters after driving the lane. "That was the biggest part of the game". Plus, other recent Duke teams with shoddy defenses and high-octane offenses suffered early-round exits at the hands of mid-majors (2013-14, No. 14 seed Mercer; 2011-12, No. 15 seed Lehigh).

That fight was enough to knock out Duke during a four-minute span in the second half that had the Blue Devils out of sorts, and for the second straight game, failing to execute what Coach Mike Krzyzewski had drawn up for his team.

This isn't quite to the degree of "You can throw out the record books when these two teams meet" territory but neither team is playing at their best and both teams come in desperately seeking a win. Bagley then rejected a dunk attempt.

Killian Tillie amassed 21 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Bulldogs to a sluggish win over the Tigers in Stockton, Calif.

The Tar Heels had the ball for more than a minute and took five shots.

If anything, Bagley had looked past getting a double-double against North Carolina and instead was working on a triple-double. There were multiple times when players shot the ball without moving the ball around. The Blue Devils are 6-3-1 against UNC over that span, with their most recent meeting coming in the semifinals of the 2017 ACC Tournament.

Jock Landale scored 21 points and Jordan Ford added 20 points and nine rebounds to lead No. 11 Saint Mary's (24-2, 13-0 West Coast Conference) to an 83-62 victory over Loyola Marymount (7-17, 2-11) in Los Angeles. "We got a lot of big rebounds in the second half, it gave us a boost".

Krzyzewski said it was something they worked on in practice with Bolden back.
