Zion Williamson puts on a show as Duke nips rival North Carolina

That includes a 13-point win over Louisville-the only other team besides Virginia to beat the Heels in ACC play-in the quarterfinals.

The Wolfpack are leading the Cavaliers, 29-27, after 20 minutes of play. Duke went just 3-3 in those contests, losing twice to Carolina, once to Virginia Tech and narrowly escaping a game at home against a Wake Forest team they had beaten by 22 earlier in the year.

Friday's victory offered an answer of sorts, but not one Williams or the rest of the Tar Heels were ready to affirm with any sense of certainty. The teams entered halftime tied 44-44. Goldwire's defense especially kept Duke in it late in the first half, and coach Mike Krzyzewski rewarded the two with second-half starts. "The physicality increases, and probably the game even slows down some, and so you've got to knock down shots when you get them". Duke trailed by 13 points in the second half but rallied behind Jayson Tatum (24 points) and Luke Kennard (20) for a sixth straight win over UNC in the tournament. After the first, a baseline slam over Brooks, UNC rushed down court and got an open dunk of its own for Johnson. When he returned at the under-four timeout, Duke immediately fed Williamson in the post. The drought was ended by a free throw from Little to shave the Duke lead to one, setting the stage for a tense last few minutes. Moments later, Maye tossed in an and-one of his own, but missed the free throw.

The most notable Duke-UNC game of the season was the regular-season finale, when Duke led 7-0 at the half and won 47-40 as the Tar Heels held the ball.

A potential game-winner for Coby White, a pull-up jumper with just seconds left, rimmed out, and a putback attempt by Little didn't fall, handing UNC its first loss to Duke since March 3 of a year ago.

The year before the heated duel in Atlanta, Ferry was the Duke star, scoring 19 points in the championship game in being named MVP. He brought a raucous Spectrum Center crowd to its feet with several dunks. And his success in the paint overshadowed RJ Barrett's 5-of-15 shooting night.

"They are as fast as any team I've coached against", Louisville head coach Chris Mack said about UNC.

Duke: This tournament has largely been about Williamson's return from the injury that had sidelined him for almost six full games, and what it means for the Blue Devils going forward.

The good news is FSU basketball only executed one of our three keys to victory in the last match up and still managed to win the game.

Seminoles reserve guard David Nichols in particular was able to exploit his matchup against diminutive Virginia guard Kihei Clark, a freshman. "But I'm not going to sit here and say, 'Oh my God, I hope we can play them again.' I'm not starting any extra drama".
