Zion Williamson just made the most incredible block

  • This breathtaking Zion Williamson block shouldn't be possible

The No. 2 Duke Blue Devils beat the No. 3 Virginia Cavaliers 81-71 behind a 26-point performance by RJ Barrett.

Duke's greatest weakness this season has been outside shooting, but the Blue Devils were on fire in Charlottesville. "When we open up the defense with 3s, it just makes our driving lanes much bigger".

Here's why the shots were open: Since the Blue Devils (21-2, 9-1) scored 46 points in the paint and penetrated at will against them last month, the Cavaliers were obsessed with clogging the paint Saturday.

Krzyzewski developed a bond with James when he was the head coach of the US men's national team.

Virginia definitely has been a team that consistently plays Duke tough. "But it was cool he was here", Krzyzewski said. "That little bit of room - they took advantage of it without any kind of coaching". Ty Jerome, who averages 13 points and 4.9 assists per game for UVA, is questionable to play tonight due to a back injury.

Kangna had expected the same reaction from Alia, but failing to receive the same treatment she came down harsh on her. She slammed Aamir Khan and Alia Bhatt for not answering her calls and not showing support to her film.

But as had been the case in the first half, just when Virginia had been gaining steam, the Blue Devils answered with a timely three-pointer, this time from staring point guard Tre Jones from the left corner.

Long regarded as the most unforgiving defense in the country under Coach Tony Bennett, the Virginia men's basketball team's "pack line" wilted trying to guard No. 2 Duke on Saturday evening. You got to read, 'Ok, when is that guy Ok on the ball?' and leave and be there on the catch. Virginia has 44 turnovers over its past three games despite coming in first nationally in fewest turnovers (9.0).

"There's maybe two people in the world that can make those plays and they both were in our gym", Bennett said in an apparent nod to James' visit.

LeBron James and Rajon Rondo were in attendance to watch Williamson and the Blue Devils before playing the Sixers on the road Sunday. When Barrett and Reddish shoot as well as they did Saturday, Williamson can be a part-time decoy who still manages to do plenty of damage.

"It was one of my poorer performances in the first 15 minutes of the first half", Guy said. They gathered themselves and had several runs that energized the crowd, but a team that's 20-0 against everyone else never could get over the hump against arguably the country's most talented squad. Duke's home games in this stretch are back-to-back rivalry match-ups versus NC State and No. 8 North Carolina...
