Bagley III, No. 5 Duke Roll Over Notre Dame In ACC Tournament

Notre Dame forward Bonzie Colson shoots against Duke guard Gary Trent Jr. during the first half of an NCAA college basketball game in the Atlantic Coast Conference men's tournament Thursday Virginia Tech blows 21-point lead, falls to Notre Dame in ACC Tournament

Before you knew it, the lead was under 10. Joel Berry tallied 13, and Cam Johnson, Kenny Williams and Garrison Brooks all finished with 10. (15.5 ppg, 2.8 rpg, 3.0 apg, 1.0 spg), and Rex Pflueger (8.2 ppg, 4.2 rpg, 3.1 apg, 1.1 spg).

HALF: UNC 36, Duke 31: Both teams struggled early. The Blue Devils led for all but 90 seconds before halftime, when they led 41-37. They went from 6:50 in the second half until 28.6 of the second half without scoring.

Ky Bowman scored 23 points, eight rebounds and four assists. Luke Maye and Joel Berry each have 6 points for the Heels, and Garrison Brooks has 8.

The loss drops BC to 3-3 in its final six games of the regular season-a stretch that Christian believes was the most formative of the season.

Allen is the only senior on the Duke roster.

In order to succeed offensively Duke's best bet is going to have to be getting Marvin Bagley isolated on the perimeter.

"Nobody can guard him, he's a mismatch nightmare and I'm glad he's on our team". "They've got games left to play".

Officials for the matchup are Mike Eades, Teddy Valentine and Bert Smith.

Duke, the defending champion after beating Notre Dame in the title game a year ago, earned its 100th ACC Tournament victory. No. 12 North Carolina (24-9) won the tournament in 2016. The Blue Devils are averaging 8.4 three-pointers per game on 38.0% shooting from beyond the arc.

Trump, Turnbull working on steel tariff exemption agreement
Brazil, which after Canada is the biggest steel supplier to the U.S. market, said it wanted to join the list. Instead, they said, Trump is bolstering domestic industries in violation of worldwide trade rules.

Carolina bounced back from the semifinal loss to Duke in 2017 to win the national championship.

"You're also talking very realistically with our seniors that if it's the NIT we'd be honored and let's come back to The [Madison Garden] Garden", Brey said. "I hope they get in, because I think they can beat anybody".

Duke strengthened its case to be one of the four No. 1 seeds in the NCAA tournament with an impressive 88-70 romp over Notre Dame Thursday night in the ACC tournament quarterfinals at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

"We're definitely on a roll right now", Bagley said.

With a bid to The Big Dance and another victory there this year, the four-year senior trio could set a new standard. "That was a big-time game tonight".

But Clemson wasn't going to get off easy-not on Robinson's watch. "As a coach, I don't know that I would point to offense as a problem".

Wednesday, Bruce Rasmussen, chairman of the NCAA selection committee and athletic director at Creighton, addressed the issues surrounding both teams, sort of, in a conference call. Bagley added 17 rebounds for his 20th double-double of the season.

"My first time being here, a lot of the freshmen's first time being here, it's a great experience", Bagley said.

"I think we really dug in defensively, and that helped us on the offensive end", Farrell said. We can't look ahead. I think all the veterans have played really, really well and so, I mean, we kind of knew that we would have to be patient with this group, with as numerous young kids who are playing and pitching in particular, so we'll continue to be patient.

They're not an explosive team, but their grit, ability to defend and knack for coming up with huge plays in clutch moments would've been a great thing to watch on the big stage this March.
