Zion Williamson, with his size and his skill, has the potential to do that. The Blue Devils probably will have to do without him entirely for the rematch. I haven't seen him today, we'll see how he is.
But Duke has demonstrated since Williamson's injury that it is dependent on the fortunes of a single player more than any other team in the country. Beyond Jones, no other Blue Devil scored in double figures. The Duke Blue Devils star - who is expected to go first overall in the National Basketball Association draft - broke through his shoe just 30 seconds into their matchup on February 20th.
The Blue Devils - 26-point favorites - trailed by 10 with 16 minutes remaining and never led by more than three until the final three minutes. The good news, Krzyzewski said, is that Williamson was able to do some basketball work during practice, and his return is imminent. Carolina, meanwhile, has won six straight games and has lost just once since January 13.
Williamson ranks second in the league in scoring, averaging 21.6 points. Childress missed a 3-pointer with about two seconds left and the rebound went to Brown, whose short jumper spun around the back of the iron before falling out at the horn.
Andrew Bogut nearing a return to the National Basketball Association from native Australia's NBL
Semifinal - Men's Semifinal Australia v Serbia - Carioca Arena 1 - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil - 19/8/2016. Reports emerged on Monday that the Golden State Warriors were reuniting with center Andrew Bogut .
"We're not concerned about that", Krzyzewski said. "Nope. Just playing video games IN FULL ADIDAS get up", Rovell, the ESPN-turned-Action Network business reporter, tweeted after stumbling upon the video. On paper, it looked like it would be No. 10.
In the first win at Cameron Indoor Stadium, UNC shot an abysmally low 10 percent from behind the arc. But unlike the Georgia Tech and Boston College games - in which they fell behind at halftime before pulling away for convincing victories - they could never shake the pesky Demon Deacons.
With Williamson out, fellow freshmen RJ Barrett has stepped up for Duke, while Carolina has a star freshman of its own leading the charge in Coby White. "But I would be surprised if he wasn't ready by the ACC tournament".
The Jackets called a quick timeout after the Tar Heels opened the second frame with a 4-0 spurt, answering with a 6-0 run fueled by four points from Kondalia Montgomery to reopen a 30-20 lead with 6:00 to play. Since then, the two programs have traveled on far different trajectories.
