Zion Williamson Dents Basketball With Super Strength: Twitter Reacts

Duke climbs back from 23 down, stuns Louisville on eve of Coach K's 72nd birthday

The 23-point comeback over the final 10 minutes of the second half was the largest of Coach K's career - but it wasn't the best. Williamson, as he's been wont to do this season, had a monster game, scoring 27 points and ripping down 12 rebounds against the Cardinals. Well, we learned that he apparently has the grip strength of the average free climber, because this is what happened when he put three fingertips on a basketball. The Blue Devils celebrated loudly as they left the court after completing the second-biggest second-half comeback in program history. "At that point, I may have been telling them a lie". So you're talking positive, but I don't know belief. This result was mostly a credit to the comeback, and how risky Duke can be when it decides to flex its toughness on the defensive end of the court.

It was Coach K who had to help his team deal with the adversity of their flight from Durham to Louisville being delayed by about four hours the night before the game (they did not arrive until after midnight). Their kids never quit, " Louisville coach Chris Mack said.

Reddish scored 16 of his 22 points after halftime and RJ Barrett added 13 for Duke, which won its eighth in a row despite shooting a season-low 37 percent from the field. That's because the Cardinals led by 23 points with 9 minutes, 5 seconds to play, but ended up losing 71-69.

Duke continued its pursuit of the No. 1 spot with a gutsy rally.

After explaining how the team came back to win, Krzyzewski was also asked about sexual assault allegations against a former Blue Devils player.

Funding finalized for new Edmonton mental health centre for children
The Child and Adolescent Mental Health Centre is being built on AHS-owned land just east of the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital. Among the challenges, families are concerned about the stigma of a mental health condition and being able to afford treatment.

Not only did Cam Reddish's game-winning free throws come after a charge call was reviewed and switched to a block when Ryan McMahon was determined to be inside the protected area at the time of contact, but most of the final minutes for Louisville were played with no timeouts.

The loss drops No. 16 Louisville to 17-8.

That didn't seem possible in the first half.

Louisville had a last-second chance to tie things up, but missed the shot.

Up next for the #2 ranked Blue Devils is a home game against NC State on Saturday afternoon, followed by a Wednesday night showdown against hated rival UNC.
