3 takeaways from Duke’s ACC Tournament win over UNC

Duke Vs. North Carolina Live Stream: Watch ACC Tournament Game Online

Over on the Duke side, they're 28-5 this season. The Tar Heels also went ahead 73-72 on Little's dunk with 48 seconds left, only to see Williamson respond by tipping in his own miss in the paint - battling through a crowd of white jerseys - to go back in front.

The game wasn't decided until the final buzzer, when the White jumper and ensuing putback didn't fall and the Blue Devils held on by a thin margin against their rival.

In Duke's 74-73 win over UNC in the ACC tournament semifinal, in a game that saw four lead changes in the final four minutes, Williamson had a game-high 31 points in 35 minutes.

Goldwire and Vrankovic - who has appeared in just 16 games this season for the Blue Devils - both started the second half and finished with 27 and 10 minutes, respectively.

After freshman RJ Barrett missed two free throws with 12.4 seconds left, UNC pushed downcourt for a final possession.

2 team in the country, won both games against the No. 3 Blue Devils earlier this season, however Duke was without Williamson for almost all of those bouts.

The year before the heated duel in Atlanta, Ferry was the Duke star, scoring 19 points in the championship game in being named MVP.

The good news is FSU basketball only executed one of our three keys to victory in the last match up and still managed to win the game.

Who do they play next?

The Blue Devils have just one loss with their full starting five on the court, and that makes a strong case for the NCAA tournament selection committee to put them on the top line and send them to nearby Columbia, South Carolina - just down the road from Williamson's hometown of Spartanburg. Duke would win its first NCAA title two days later. Three weeks later, he sat out the regular-season finale in Chapel Hill, and again the Heels dominated.

But Carolina has felt a measure of disrespect, something that was surely compounded in the immediate aftermath of the game that would have settled any debate.

"I can go back and many times tell you that we have had injuries that really hurt us and Zion being hurt really hurt Duke, but it was still Duke-North Carolina", Williams said. "I didn't know he was going to dunk that one". We have never won a tournament championship but one time.

UNC: The Tar Heels are headed to the NCAA Tournament, though it's unclear whether they've done enough to secure a No. 1 seed. It's also the same floor where Virginia lost a second-round game as a No. 2 seed to seventh-seeded Michigan State in 2015. Any reasonable observer of Friday night's game would believe there's no way the Tar Heels aren't one of the four best teams in the country, and winning 15 of their last 17 in the best conference in America should be enough proof. In those six games without Zion, those numbers dropped to 101.1 and 98.6, respectively. And you can ask nearly any graduate from either university.

So, yeah, it turns out the Blue Devils missed one of the most dominant college basketball players of the last decade.

The committee will have a hard time seeding these two teams.
