Duke built a 13-point lead during that spurt. Joel Berry tallied 13, and Cam Johnson, Kenny Williams and Garrison Brooks all finished with 10. It was his fourth game with at least 30 points and 15 rebounds.
Joe Giglio says UNC held Duke down for 35 minutes and then had to survive the last five minutes.
But when the Blue Devils got hot in the second half, there was no slowing down, with Bagley almost unstoppable in the paint on both ends.
Thats when Duke took control as Bagley and Duval combined for 10 points in a 12-2 spurt that gave the Blue Devils a 53-41 cushion.
Of note:North Carolina playmaker Theo Pinson just picked up his second foul. Allen scored 14 points in a short span including 4 three pointers to help push the Duke lead up to as many as 13.
Coming off a double-bye, the Tigers stumbled out of the gates, converting just two of first their 11 field goal attempts, including one of their first five triples.
In a physical game, the Tar Heels were tested by the No. 3 Hurricanes, but ultimately prevailed behind another strong performance by Theo Pinson.
The Blue Devils' marked improvement on defense makes them hard to beat considering the offensive firepower of ACC Player of the Year Marvin Bagley III and guards Grayson Allen and Wendell Carter Jr.
Officials for the matchup are Mike Eades, Teddy Valentine and Bert Smith.

With a bid to The Big Dance and another victory there this year, the four-year senior trio could set a new standard. "That was a big-time game tonight". "I think it's going to be a testament to the perseverance and relentlessness".
Both teams are on a roll.
For twenty minutes of last Saturday's regular-season-ending contest at Cameron Indoor, a weird pall hung over the proceedings.
Bagley was dominant on both ends the floor, especially in the second half when he scored 23 points and ruined any notion of the kind of comeback Notre Dame staged Wednesday night when it rallied from a 21-point deficit to beat seventh-seeded Virginia Tech, 71-65.
"My first time being here, a lot of the freshmen's first time being here, it's a great experience", Bagley said. "We've got to start games like that". We can't look ahead. We understand we lost the last game, so that's going to get us even more hyped up about it, but at the same time, you can't be bigger than the game.
Colson is a great team defender, but his area of weakness is guarding on the perimeter.
