Duke Vs. North Carolina Live Stream

Florida State upends No. 2 Virginia 69-59 in ACC semifinals

A faulty shoe starved the college basketball universe of a close fight in the first two bouts, but the return of the 6-7, 285-pound freshman basketball champion of the world - Zion Williamson - finally gave Duke the edge it needed to be able to rumble with North Carolina and avoid another early knockout.

ASSIST-TO-FG RATIO: The Heels have recently used assists to create baskets more often than the Blue Devils. Just when one team appeared destined for a game-ending run, a counter was never far behind. The Blue Devils have just one loss with their full starting five on the court, and that makes a strong case for the NCAA tournament selection committee to put them on the top line and send them to nearby Columbia, South Carolina - just down the road from Williamson's hometown of Spartanburg. Even Williamson, the Blue Devil panacea, started a mortal 2 for 5.

Among the Cavaliers "Big Three" of Guy, Jerome and De'Andre Hunter, only Hunter (team-high 13 points) shot at least 50 percent against the Seminoles, whose size advantage and leaping ability throughout their deep roster helped produce a 35-20 margin in rebounding. 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 second half brought back the superhuman Zion of 24 hours prior.

Cameron Johnson had 23 points for the Tar Heels (27-6), but he also missed a stepback 3-pointer for the lead that set up Barrett's missed free throws.

"That is just my competitive spirit", Williamson said of the tip-in.

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 past year. Coby White launched a contested long jumper against Tre Jones, but the ball bounced out as Nassir Little crashed the glass for a tip attempt as the horn sounded. Little reached behind him to box out the future No. 1 overall pick, but Williamson had stepped inside to the center of the lane for the rebound and a quick put-back on what would be the game victor.

The junior shot 4 of 13 against Florida State, including 2 of 9 from beyond the arc, one game after going 1 for 11 in Thursday's 76-56 win against North Carolina State in the quarterfinals.

The Seminoles are 8-1-2 ATS in their last 11 neutral-site games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 after a straight-up win.

First, Duke is everything everyone anticipated at the beginning of the year when it's at full strength.

Second, UNC is not in any way diminished. Instead, it was his decision to pass up a play designed for him and dish to Williamson for the game's final points that proved decisive.

The Cavaliers loss comes on the same floor where they became the first No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament to lose to a 16 seed in Maryland-Baltimore County previous year. "There's no one really like him", Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim said after the game.

"We grow from this experience", Bennett said.
