Duke Blue Devils
Duke lost as a favorite for the second consecutive weekend. After losing at home against UVA, the Blue Devils fell at St. John’s, 81–77 in a back-and-forth game.
St. John’s was a hungry team, having lost 11 in a row in the conference, and was in the middle of a brutal stretch against three teams that are in the hunt for a #1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
Duke didn’t give this one away as much as St. John’s took it. Shamorie Ponds had been shooting down around 20 percent from three this season but he 4–of–8 and finished with 33 points.
Duke’s starters played all but 20 minutes and scored all but four points in this game. There is certainly top talent on this roster but it doesn’t have the same feel of depth that we’re used to Coach K’s teams of the past having.
This is only the first Duke/UNC game of the regular season with another on deck on in another month in the regular season finale.
North Carolina Tar Heels
But while Duke doesn’t have the depth we’re used to it having, North Carolina is missing the elite talent that it usually has at its disposal, which is more of an omission, especially on the heels of a national championship.
At 6–5 in the ACC, North Carolina is looking up at five teams ahead of it in the standings.
The Heels pasted Pittsburgh by 31 points over the weekend but it stopped a three-game losing skid against Virginia Tech, North Carolina State and Clemson.
Even if this season has been a disappointment for the team at large, Luke Maye has been fantastic. He’s leading the team with over 18 points per game and is shooting close to 49 percent on over three three-point attempts per game.
