No. 14 Duke, No. 22 Notre Dame vie for ACC title

Since 2012, four teams from outside the state of North Carolina have won the ACC Championship: Florida State, Miami, Virginia and Notre Dame. We really needed a spark off the bench, and I didn't think I did a good job of that in the first game (Clemson). "If it's a 10-round fight, try to win six of them". The Blue Devils are just 7-17-1 against the spread in their last 25 conference games and are 2-5-2 against the number in their last nine games as an underdog despite covering yesterday as a dog. Giles finished with 6 points, 7 rebound and 4 blocks.

"The theme this year was going in there and playing our butts off because last year we didn't get that opportunity", sophomore guard Donovan Mitchell told the New York Post. "I wanted to be a little spark plug coming off the bench and just give us the momentum and get us going. I thought it was hilarious".

North Carolina: Fell short in its attempt to become the first team to repeat as ACC Tournament champion since Duke (2009-11).

Furthermore, in remembrance of the game of Durham, the refs called a lot of fouls for the Blue Devils. "I've been able to do that the last two days, and I want to continue to do that". However, over the course of the game - and especially in the second half with Berry out - Duke turned the tables on the Tar Heels by spreading the floor and showing why this team still has championship upside. The Tar Heels were outscored by 15 points over a 10-minute stretch, as the Blue Devils doubled their opponent's shooting percentage, 59.1 to 28.6, in the second half.

"He was just saying, you know, just keep my head up, keep my head into the game and when I go back in, just be a big time player". That was in huge part to the work of Carolina's front court. Once Jackson's 3-pointer went through the net, Barclays Center in Brooklyn might as well have been Greensboro, N.C. Duke quickly got the ball back in transition, and Allen found Harry Giles for an alley-oop to push the lead to 77-70. The Seminoles led that game by 11 at the half and later by 19, covering easily as 8-point favorites at home.

Instead of dumping the ball off to Isaiah Hicks and Kennedy Meeks down low, something the Tar Heels did easily in the first half, North Carolina looked to its top-scoring threat in Jackson, who failed to deliver. "We're two of the great programs", Krzyzewski said afterward. "And that made a difference in our offense". The Blue Devils may be gassed and slowing Carolina down and forcing them to shoot three-point shots seems like a win-win scenario for Duke. Once Berry came over and sat down, Williams said a few words to him. Meeks scored eight of the Tar Heels' first 10 points and powered his team to an early 21-13 lead. UNC did outbound Duke in this one and held Duke to just 6 made three-pointers, both of which will be key stats in this third meeting.
