Celebration on Franklin St. as UNC defeats Duke 90-83

Bob Donnan

The Tar Heels are coming off a road loss at Virginia.

Both Grayson Allen - who led the Blue Devils with 25 points in the first matchup against North Carolina and missed Saturday's loss at Miami - and Amile Jefferson were game-time decisions in this week's matchup against Florida State. "It's fitting that the entire tournament is in a different location, I'm on a different team and it's a new experience for me". "As of this morning I wasn't even sure I was going to make it here, but now I'm here and I'm so excited". "We wanted to do something for ourselves, and we wanted to get revenge".

By the end of the night, Berry had the type of game - combined with North Carolina's size in the post - that inspires confidence that the Tar Heels can make a legitimate run at doing what they just barely missed out on past year by winning a national championship. North Carolina has defeated seven top-ranked teams since April 1, 2012, and is 7-3 against top-ranked teams over the past six years. Jackson likely will appear on those lists.

Maye, a sophomore, has played in 26 games, averaging 4.9 points, and 3.8 rebounds helping off the bench. "You're not just going to win it because you're North Carolina".

A layup by Peterson brought the Orange within three points of the Blue Devils in the last minutes of the third, but the Blue Devils took off on a scoring streak that sent them into the fourth quarter with a 51-39 lead. A return to March returned the Tar Heels to that place again; a place where a rival was nearly just an accessory for a larger goal, the latest means to achieving a greater end, in every sense.

Steve Smith ton helps set huge target for India
India's abject surrender can be gauged by the fact that our batsmen played a mere 74 overs in two innings to score 212 runs. But times have changed since the retirement of Ricky Ponting, Shane Warne, Glenn McGrath and Adam Gilchrist.

Berry and Jackson have said in the past that it simply came down to their trust in Williams, who told them the investigation would not affect their playing career. Every once and a while, another guy will step up.

A year after Berry emerged as North Carolina's best player in the postseason, it felt like he was getting a headstart on it this time around. His physicality was unmatched by Duke.

Yet, despite improved defense and continuing dominance in the paint, UNC could not pull away. But Duke's lack of frontcourt development, due in part to injuries, is one of the main factors that has kept a good team from becoming the elite team that most expected to roll through the regular season with far fewer than eight losses. Bradley could be one of the nation's top breakout stars next season.

That was clear during last season's run to the national championship game, with Brice Johnson and Marcus Paige leading the way.

Lexie Brown didn't have a good experience in her first trip to the ACC Tournament back when she played for Maryland as a freshman.
