Duke Basketball: Blue Devils looking for revenge against North Carolina

Zion Williamson Duke Blue Devils

North Carolina struggled shooting the ball from 3-point range in the February 20 matchup making just two of its twenty attempts and if Duke wants to have success on the road, the Blue Devils will have to try and run the Heels off the 3-point line. The injury happened on the Blue Devils' first possession of the game, and UNC went on to an easy win.

No. 3 Duke, led by freshman forward RJ Barrett, faces rivals No. 4 North Carolina, led by freshman guard Coby White, in the final weekend of the ACC regular season at the Dean Smith Center in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, on Saturday, March 9, 2019 (3/9/19) at 6 p.m. eastern.

R.J. Barrett picked up the slack with his classmate out, scoring 131 points over the course of the five games and bumping his season average up to 23.3, surpassing Williamson's 21.6.

According to CBS Sports, Coach K told the media Friday that the freshman phenom was "doubtful" against the Tar Heels as he continues to rehab a sprained knee.

Miela Goodchild hit five 3-pointers and finished with 19 points to help No. 11 seed Duke beat Pittsburgh 86-64 on Wednesday night in the first round of the ACC tournament.

"We're not concerned about that", Krzyzewski said.

When everyone talked about my dismissal, I was talking with the club to plan the team for next season, so I was always relaxed". Sixth-placed Chelsea have 56 points, five behind third-placed Spurs, who they beat 2-0 last Wednesday.

Wade's One Last Dance tour made a stop at Duke's Cameron Indoor Stadium, even though Williamson wasn't on the court. He added that he thinks his star freshman will be back for the postseason - which starts this coming week with the ACC Tournament.

"He's getting more confidence", Krzyzewski said.

Duke narrowly hung on for a 71-70 home victory Tuesday night as Wake Forest missed a shot at the buzzer.

Danielle Garvin led the Panthers (11-20) with 16 points on 8-of-13 shooting. I have to be careful not to push this, to give him a chance to get in game shape.

"His knee is going to be OK", Krzyzewski said.

Williamson also remains the favorite to win National Player of the Year honors, which would make him the first Duke player to do so since JJ Redick in 2006. "You can't put together a well-oiled machine here in a couple practices to play in this conference at a level when you lose a kid like that".
