North Carolina to face Miami in ACC tourney

"He had a chance, he had moments, and he took the biggest advantage of it, and we need him to be able to do things like that because it elevates our team".

And shoot he did. Allen finished with 18 points. Each buried trifecta brought louder and louder cheers from the Duke fans, and served to quiet his critics on the other side.

Then on senior night in Chapel Hill, Carolina evened up the season series by getting a big night from senior Isaiah Hicks, 21 points, 9 rebounds and junior point guard Joel Berry II with 28 points going 5-5 from the 3-point line, all in the first half.

As mentioned above, rebounds and three-pointers will be key stats to keep an eye as well as the foul situation.

"I've had people say I don't call timeouts my whole life", Williams said, "but we've won some games, and it's the way we do it". The ACC's expanded footprint has also convinced the league to move its cherished postseason tournament north of the Washington D.C. area for the first time in the league's 64 years, and it will be back in Brooklyn next year.

Krzyzewski praised Allen for his first-half heroics. "You're not stopping them". North Carolina is also nationally ranked at No. 6 in the country, but Duke's comeback pushed them past the Tar Heels.

While Williams was playing it safe, his coaching counterpart Mike Krzyzewski put his team into attack mode at the first scent of blood.

"I don't want to use any excuses", the Hall of Fame coach said. But Allen kept playing and the Blue Devils kept battling, and soon, it was Allen having the last laugh after scoring 18 points, including 5-of-6 from 3-point range. Like the regular season it came in a game against Duke. The Blue Devils rallied from 12 down a day earlier to oust Louisville in the quarterfinals. Then UNC lost its defensive nerve and its offensive rhythm as Duke outscored its rival, 45-22, over the final 13:53.

Swansea's revival under Paul Clement gained more momentum with a 3-2 win over Burnley - the club's fourth victory in six games. You just don't leave your best, world-class player out in major, must-not-lose games.

UNC led 65-63 at that point. "They picked us up a little bit in the backcourt". By the time Berry came back onto the floor 10 minutes and six seconds later, the game was too far gone to salvage. "We're really excited, especially to be in this building". "I didn't know if we had the energy (in the semifinal)".

Duke saw incredible production from their future lottery pick players, as Jayson Tatum went for 25 points and Luke Kennard went for 24 points. Without him, UNC couldn't get anything to go their way. North Carolina shot 33.3 percent from the field, its lowest rate in a game since the 2014-15 season. They had a number of good shots that just wouldn't fall in. "They apply a lot of ball pressure on the perimeter".

This time they clashed up north, and Duke took down Carolina.

"I didn't play my best", Berry said.

This is the team we have been waiting for, the one that looked so good on paper back in October.

"They know how to score from it, and they know how to defend it", Krzyzewski observed.

Quentin Snider had 15 points, three rebounds and five assists for the Cards. The lead only grew in the final care-free minutes, and the Hurricanes were held to 24 points in the second half. Meanwhile the Tar Heel's got 19 a piece from Hicks and Meeks.
