North Carolina knocks off Duke in Tobacco Road showdown

Maye is a tweener: while he rebounds like a big man three inches taller, he has built his game around turnaround mid-range jumpers and pop-out threes. Over 32 minutes, Williams drained half of his 12 three-point attempts, three of which came over a 90-second span around the midpoint of the first half. The Blue Devils are 45-40 versus the Tar Heels with Mike Krzyzewski as the head coach.

"Coming out and not winning, that's not going to fly, especially against that team", Bagley said.

"I don't want to be viewed as somebody who is really caring all about their personal endeavors", Maye said in an interview with The Associated Press.

The grade wasn't too far off-Duke had owned the boards against the nation's top rebounding team at the outset, but imploded as the game wore on.

Duke cut the deficit to 74-71 as the Tar Heels missed 13 consecutive shots from the field.

(16) Clemson 72, Pitt 48: Gabe DeVoe matched his career high with 25 points, helping the Tigers beat the Panthers in Clemson, South Carolina.

North Carolina wiped out a 42-33 hole by scoring on 10 of 11 possessions bridging the two halves for a 10-point lead.

"It's all five guys".

February is barely a week old, but it hasn't been kind to the Duke Blue Devils. "We know what we have to do". "They're crashing from the perimeter, so it's all of our responsibility".

It also silenced Duke's players, who could do nothing but look stunned Thursday night.

This one is a little more obvious: North Carolina was outstanding on the glass. "(Brazeau) said, 'You've got a tough stretch.' I said, 'No joke.' But it sounded like something that the league needed to do, so I said OK". But (ACC associate commissioner Paul Brazeau) called and said we've got a stretch for you that's going to be very hard, but we need to do it. But Paul called and said we've got a stretch for you that's going to be very hard but we need to do it. "That was the biggest part of the game". Duke have similarly struggled against the spread this season, but they've been dealing with larger spreads for most of the season. After yielding 49 points in the first half, the UNC defense locked down the Blue Devils to just 29 points over the final 20 minutes.

Luke Maye leads North Carolina in scoring (18.3) and rebounding (10.3). But I'd argue that a game like this, where both teams have been through pretty serious struggles during the season, is much more important.

Duke and North Carolina each entered the 2018 edition of the rivalry in a precarious position. The secondary break pushes the tempo after a defensive rebound or made basket, with a focus on getting the ball inside to a rim-running big man.

ESPN gives Duke a more than 64 percent chance to win the game.

. Carolina responded with a barrage of threes and pulled ahead for good in the second half. He feels the look is something that might work.

North Carolina reserve point guard Seventh Woods played for the first time since November, though he finished scoreless.

The Tar Heels (18-and-7, 7-and-5 ACC) made it a four point game right before halftime. "I definitely don't like that we're the only one doing it". "We have to figure this out".
