For all its talent, Duke's soft underbelly, its area of exposure, appeared to be its 3-point shooting.

RJ Barrett did most of the offensive damage for Duke (21-2, 9-1), making a season-high 6 of 10 from beyond the arc to finish with a game-high 26 points and end Virginia's 13-game home winning streak. Duke and Virginia are meeting for the first time in the regular with each team having 20+ wins... Notre Dame's Mike Brey had the same wish two weeks ago.

Virginia discovered as much Saturday at John Paul Jones Arena in an 81-71 loss to No. 2 Duke.

LeBron James is a huge basketball fan and his Los Angeles Lakers are on an Eastern Conference road trip, so he made a decision to head to Charlottesville, Virginia to watch Zion Williamson and the Duke Blue Devils against the No. 3 ranked Virginia Cavaliers.

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. "But we just tried to keep playing our game". "They have some special players in what they can do".

"He and I are really good friends".

The rest of the country must accept this reality: When Duke hits 3-pointers, it is almost impossible to beat.

Despite Duke's blistering start, Virginia was within 41-37 early in the second half. After this win over Virginia, the gap between Duke and the rest of the country is even wider.

Over the last five games, freshman Zion Williamson is 50-of-66 (.758) from the field with 118 points.

It was the largest comeback in the National Basketball Association in the last two seasons and the largest in Clippers history. This is what we're going with. "It's unacceptable what we did tonight for a team of our caliber".

Hey, we don't care if Williamson can or cannot shoot. "So we've practiced it a lot more". "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 Blue Devils led wire-to-wire in the victory at JPJ, and they hit 13-of-21 three-pointers against the Pack Line defense (61.9 percent).

They hit 15 the following game while smashing Army 94-72.

ESPN's College GameDay will be in Virginia Saturday morning, and the students will have all day to get ready for the game in Charlottesville.

Notice, though, the Blue Devils won all of those games. Both these teams were terrible from 3-point range the first time around.

Thus the very valid idea that Duke's perimeter shooting was a weakness.

"I don't think it's anything I did", he said, "but my players felt it".

"It's a little bit deflating when they're banging 3s and you're trying to keep them out of the lane", Virginia coach Tony Bennett said. No. 8 North Carolina comes to Cameron Indoor Stadium on February 20. Four of the Blue Devils' final nine games this season are teams ranked in the AP top 15... The ACC and NCAA tournaments follow. It's just that I simply don't believe Tennessee and Gonzaga have done anything to deserve to drop below the Blue Devils.
