LeBron James shows up to Duke-Virginia to see Zion Williamson

Nike Le Bron 16 Duke Blue Devils PE

Cam Reddish #2, RJ Barrett #5 and Zion Williamson #1 of the Duke Blue Devils hug in the second half during a game against the Virginia Cavaliers at John Paul Jones Arena on February 9, 2019 in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Entering the game having made just 30.8 percent of their 3-pointers this season, the Blue Devils made seven of their first eight to build a double-digit lead and hold off every Virginia charge.

Coach K's Blue Devils ranked 13th in the ACC in three-point shooting at 31 percent, but Duke shot the lights out Saturday, making 13 three's.

The rest of the country must accept this reality: When Duke hits 3-pointers, it is almost impossible to beat.

Rugged StretchBeginning with Virginia, the Blue Devils are on the road for four of their next six games... Kyle Guy and Ty Jerome lead Virginia in scoring with 16 points each.

The Blue Devils weren't able to dislodge Tennessee from the top spot but they did cut into the Volunteers' lead.

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

Silva was guaranteed a title shot by White if he defeats Adesanya at UFC 234 at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne this weekend. ESPN's Ariel Helwani does not paint a pretty picture of what occurred that night, with Whittaker now in surgery.

Duke scored more points against the Cavaliers than any other team so far this season, and they did it with a new plan of attack. "But we just tried to keep playing our game".

Williamson is the nation's only player averaging 20.0+ points and shooting.650+ from the field. Saturday's game marks the third consecutive meeting, and fourth in the all-time series, that Duke and Virginia are meeting with each team ranked in the AP top five...

Both teams had trouble finding the bucket from beyond the arc in the the first matchup when Duke stuffed the perimeter and forced bad Cavaliers' shots.

"It's the best we've shot from the three-point, and obviously, it's a huge difference", Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said.

For all its talent, Duke's soft underbelly, its area of exposure, appeared to be its 3-point shooting. It was really kind of neat to see kids step up that way. No. 8 North Carolina comes to Cameron Indoor Stadium on February 20.

Virginia was shorthanded in the 2nd half without Mamadi Diakite, who collided with Hunter in the 1st half, and never returned to the game.

Virginia definitely has been a team that consistently plays Duke tough. "They know their strengths, they play to their strengths, they stay away from their weaknesses and it's a big time team".
