No. 2 Duke shoots its way past No. 3 Virginia

  • Barrett 3s lead No. 2 Duke past No. 3 Virginia 81-71

Virginia guard De'Andre Hunter must have thought he had a wide-open 3-point look from the corner during Saturday's game against Duke, but he was wrong.

LeBron James is a huge basketball fan and his Los Angeles Lakers are on an Eastern Conference road trip, so he made a decision to head to Charlottesville, Virginia to watch Zion Williamson and the Duke Blue Devils against the No. 3 ranked Virginia Cavaliers. With the shot clock ticking under five seconds, the junior drilled a 25-foot-plus 3-pointer to pull the hosts within single digits for the first time in almost six minutes.

In allowing their most points this season, the Cavaliers were particularly spotty challenging shots from beyond the arc, with the Blue Devils making 13 of 21 while rolling to an 81-71 win.

Virginia has only one flaw on its schedule so far this season.

Hunter's 3-pointer left Virginia down 66-61. Its previous high was eight to Notre Dame on 29 attempts.

"It's a little bit deflating when they're banging 3s and you're trying to keep them out of the lane", Virginia coach Tony Bennett said. The Blue Devils struggled with the Virginia defense in the first meeting, but Duke has been improving a lot since that game. R.J. Barrett is leading the team with 23 points and 7.2 rebounds per game while Zion Williamson is adding 22 points and 9.4 rebounds per game.

Duke's Most Top-5 Vs. Top-5 GamesSaturday's game marks the Blue Devils' fourth AP top-5 vs. top-5 game this season - the most played by a Duke team before March 1 in history... Kyle Guy and Ty Jerome scored 16 points apiece for Virginia, who couldn't avenge their 72-70 loss to the Blue Devils on January 19. Virginia has 44 turnovers over its past three games despite coming in first nationally in fewest turnovers (9.0). That win also came without freshman starting point guard Tre Jones, and having him back in the lineup could be a huge boost for the Blue Devils in this matchup on Saturday.

"They're just a good team, and we did what our principles tell us to do", Guy said. "We did a much better job in the gap, and they didn't get as many driving lanes, but when you hit thirteen three's you're going to be hard to beat".

Center Jay Huff came off the bench to provide a lift for the Cavaliers early in the second half.

After a break, it was Reddish who took over from long range, connecting three times as the Blue Devils pushed the margin to 52-41 in just over four minutes.
