Zion Williamson just made the most incredible block

Zion Williamson just made the most incredible block

In the most anticipated game of the weekend, No. 3 Virginia plays host to No. 2 Duke tonight at 6PM ET.

The Blue Devils received the top seed in the NCAA Division I Basketball Committee, but the Vols received 40 of 64 first-place votes from a media panel in the AP Top 25 released on Monday. "Duke shot 58.7 percent from the floor - the best percentage against U.Va. since November 2010, when Washington shot 58 percent in the Huskies" 106-63 win in Maui. The 7-foot-1 redshirt sophomore made a three-pointer and delivered a pass into a tight window to Braxton Key for a layup that trimmed the deficit to 54-49 with 12:19 to play.

Well, he was at it again Saturday night.

It's hard to find fault in Bennett's plan, just as it wasn't when Notre Dame's Brey saw the Blue Devils hit nine of 16 while beating his Irish 83-61 back on January 28.

Duke shot 57.8 percent overall. Duke's fourth freshman starter, point guard Tre Jones, scored 13 points and handed out seven assists. The Blue Devils lead the series, 41-34, in Charlottesville (5-3 at John Paul Jones Arena)...

I'll never apologize for having that team No. 1.

The Vols continued winning, stretching their school-record streak to 18 games with wins over Missouri and Florida last week.

The rest of the country must accept this reality: When Duke hits 3-pointers, it is almost impossible to beat. He'd prefer to avoid a reminder, but he and his Virginia teammates will have to try Monday night at North Carolina to elude a skid.

So the Vols remain at the top of the Top 25 And 1. Duke's 5-1 record versus top 15 teams leads the nation...

According to oddsmakers at BetNow.eu, Virginia is the slight favorite at home, as the Cavaliers are getting odds of -1.5 points against Duke.

Gonzaga forward Killian Tillie did not play against the Gaels and is out indefinitely after suffering a torn ligament in his right foot against San Francisco on Thursday.

Balancing Defense & TempoDuke is 35th nationally in scoring defense, yielding 65.2 points per game. Now things have gotten dicey for Bill Self and his team, who now sit at No. 14 following a loss to 19th-ranked Kansas State early last week. Of the 20 fastest teams, Duke is the only team ranked in the top 115 for scoring defense...

It feels like decades ago that Duke thumped Kentucky to open this season at the Champions Classic.
