Look Le Bron James Rajon Rondo spotted watching Zion Williamson at Duke Virginia game

Virginia has 44 turnovers over its past three games despite coming in first nationally in fewest turnovers (9.0).

Over the last five games, freshman Zion Williamson is 50-of-66 (.758) from the field with 118 points. The Blue Devils are 35th in scoring defense and 18th in tempo.

Duke shot 57.8 percent overall - the highest by a Virginia opponent - in winning its seventh in a row to remain in a first-place tie in the conference with No. 8 North Carolina, which hosts the Cavaliers on Monday night.

The No. 3 Cavaliers (20-2, 8-2 ACC) were the last team against which anyone would figure to shake a 3-point funk.

Virginia, on the other hand, has only suffered one loss (Duke) since their opening-round loss in last year's NCAA tournament, when they became the first-ever No. 1 team to lose to a 16 seed in men's basketball history.

In the first half, Blue Devil freshman R.J.

Guy and Ty Jerome each had 16 points to lead Virginia.

A plan to cut off the driving lanes, even if it meant Duke's shooters were wide open, proved a bad idea.

Way back on November 6, when Duke served notice it was a serious national title contender with a 118-84 demolishing of Kentucky, the Blue Devils hit 12 of 26 3-pointers (46.2 percent).

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. But Williamson turned in big plays on both ends for Duke.

In Saturday's second half, James was sitting underneath Duke's basket with Rondo and some of his friends, including his agent, Rich Paul.

The Cavaliers, meanwhile, had been dealing with uncertainty surrounding their starting point guard in Jerome.

Rugged StretchBeginning with Virginia, the Blue Devils are on the road for four of their next six games... Duke's 11 potential Top 25 games would tie Louisville, North Carolina and Virginia as the most in the country this season.

Bennett didn't hold practice Sunday and Monday for rest and recovery and indicated Jerome was moving the in the right direction with regard to his sore back he initially tweaked on January 29 in the early portion of a 66-65 overtime win against North Carolina State in Raleigh. Which team has the edge in this rivalry game? The Cavaliers were ranked No. 4 in the country when they visited top-ranked Duke on January 19.

After Salt missed two free throws, Jones' jump shot put Duke up 72-61 with 3:13 to play.

Duke went to an inside game at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

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. "Wahoos win, but Duke keeps it plenty interesting".
