This breathtaking Zion Williamson block shouldn't be possible

Virginia made several pushes only to be rebuffed by the Blue Devils.

Duke's greatest weakness this season has been outside shooting, but the Blue Devils were on fire in Charlottesville. "The quick turnaround is good for us to try to move on".

Rugged StretchBeginning with Virginia, the Blue Devils are on the road for four of their next six games...

Duke made five of its first eight shots after halftime, including three Reddish 3-pointers over the first five minutes, to push its lead back into double-digits.

Given how the two carved out time from their busy schedule to hit up Charlottesville for the game, it's fair to assume they were there scouting Duke star Zion Williamson.

Late in the game, Hunter was open in the left corner and either lost control briefly or took too much time setting up for a 3-pointer.

Kyle Guy and Ty Jerome each scored 16 to lead Virginia (20-2, 8-2), which plays the No. 8 Tar Heels on Monday night.

Tennessee (22-1, 10-0 SEC) moved to the No. 1 spot in the AP poll after Duke (21-2, 9-1 ACC) lost to Syracuse on January 14.

Despite many experts claiming the Blue Devils as the best team in the country, Duke fans will have to wait to see their team climb back to the No. 1 ranking, as they stay steady at No. 2. RJ Barrett and Cam Reddish combined to make 11 threes to maintain a lead throughout the game.

But if the Blue Devils' 3-point shooting stroke is true, everyone could simply be playing for second place.

James is also a well-known friend of Duke Mike Krzyzewski as Coach K coached LeBron for USA Basketball. It was really kind of neat to see kids step up that way.
