Barrett and the decision making and defensive intensity of Tre Jones, but it is the efficiency and play of Cam Reddish that will bring the Duke Blue Devils to the next level.

The No. 2 Blue Devils made 13 3-pointers, hitting at a season-best 61.9 percent accuracy, and never trailed to beat No. 3 Virginia 81-71 in ACC basketball at John Paul Jones Arena. De'Andre Hunter is leading the team with 14.7 points and 5.4 rebounds per contest. "We all can do a mixture of everything and it just depends on who gets found, who's open and it's a simple as that".

The committee named Duke (21-2, 9-1 in ACC) as the No. 1 overall seed. "But it was cool he was here", Krzyzewski said. "Not one guy, but they kind of took turns doing it, like a counterpunch".

Duke's greatest weakness this season has been outside shooting, but the Blue Devils were on fire in Charlottesville. They now share first place with North Carolina and have two games left with the Tar Heels.

Add another one to the Zion Williamson highlight reel.

The rematch between teams with national championship aspirations came three weeks after the Blue Devils held off Virginia at Cameron Indoor Stadium for a 72-70 win, the most points the Cavaliers had allowed this season until Saturday.

And that's because Rick Barnes' team has been rolling since losing a neutral-court game to Kansas the day after Thanksgiving, and I'm simply not going to drop a team that's now on an 18-game winning streak featuring a victory over the Gonzaga team ranked second (that beat the Duke team ranked third). The Jayhawks play TCU and West Virginia.

Durham's Jay Huff hit a 3-pointer for Virginia before zipping a nice pass under the basket for a Braxton Key layin that cut Duke's lead to 54-49.

"There's maybe two people in the world that can make those plays and they both were in our gym", Bennett said in an apparent nod to James' visit. That could kill the Cavaliers' ACC title hopes, but all is not lost.

The Blue Devils are 5-2 against the spread in their last seven road games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Saturday games.

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.
