Six threes from Barrett lead No. 2 Duke past No. 3 Virginia

Six threes from Barrett lead No. 2 Duke past No. 3 Virginia

Moreover, Jones who missed the first Virginia game with a shoulder injury, contributed 13 points, seven assists, six rebounds and two steals as Duke scored the most points in regulation by any team against the Cavaliers since Tennessee's 87 in December 2013. "We really tried to keep them out of the lame, and jam the lane".

Zion Williamson's ridiculous catalog of dunks get all the attention, but the projected No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft is also one of the country's most fearsome shot blockers.

The Blue Devils didn't let the appearance of two National Basketball Association stars or a hostile crowd rattle them Saturday night. Kyle Guy and Ty Jerome scored 16 points apiece for Virginia, who couldn't avenge their 72-70 loss to the Blue Devils on January 19. Virginia began the day first nationally in 3-point defense at 24.7 percent and hadn't allowed more than eight made 3s in a game this season. By the time he got it off, Williamson came flying at him and knocked the shot several rows deep, one of his three blocks. The Cavaliers lost to the Blue Devils at John Paul Jones Arena for the third consecutive time. "It's not just if you're really tight on them, they certainly can beat you off the dribble and get on the glass, but they weren't missing many".

"I didn't notice until probably the second half". The 7-foot-1 redshirt sophomore made a three-pointer and delivered a pass into a tight window to Braxton Key for a layup that trimmed the deficit to 54-49 with 12:19 to play. Jones added two free throws not long after, and Duke led 59-49.

Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski says, "We were fortunate we won".




The momentum of Virginia's rousing finish to the first half failed to carry over coming out of the locker room.

RJ Barrett's six 3-pointers and five more from Reddish on Saturday night at Virginia helped erase that game plan. They have consistently been among the top five teams in the country, even after they met the first time this season.

Duke has recorded a steal on 13.9 percent of opponents' possessions - best percentage in the NCAA. Some loose turnovers that led to the breakaways. Virginia is putting up 72.9 points per game on offense this season while shooting 47.7 percent from the field. The junior was unavailable for the February 2 game against Miami, the first time he has sat out in his career - a span of 89 games.

UVa (20-2, 8-2 ACC) will be back in action at North Carolina on Monday night.

"I didn't know for sure until about Thursday that I was going to play", Jerome said.
