Well Duke survived again against familiar Virginia Tech. The question is whether these results are showing weakness or resilience.
Michigan State seems to be peaking at just the right time to knock off the top seed in the tournament.
Duke Blue Devils
Duke had another close battle beating the Hokies by just two points to advance to the Elite Eight. It was a game most thought would be close and it was.
All season long the Blue Devils have struggled with outside shooting. All of their talent say they should be better in that are but they aren’t.
Virginia Tech used the tried tactic of daring Tre Jones to shoot from beyond the arc. It failed in this one as he nailed five three pointers, but can he keep that up.
Zion was Zion shooting 11 for 14 from the floor with three blocks. RJ Barrett did not shoot well but has 11 assists. Cam Reddish did not play and might not in this one either.
Michigan State Spartans
Michigan State had little problem with LSU in its Sweet Sixteen game winning by 17. They are playing their best ball at the most important time of year.
The interesting thing is how they have changed over the course of the season. After some injury time Nick Ward is coming off the bench, with mixed result. He was their top scorer early.
Cassius Winston is having a great season. No matter the situation he is able to give them exactly what they need whether that is scoring or getting others involved.
Freshman Aaron Henry was just so so during the season but he scored a season high 20 against LSU. He is athletic and will draw a tough assignment in this game defensively.
