Many things can happen in 11 days.
"Missed" is a misnomer. "We missed them out of anxiousness and inexperience being in this position where you have a chance to beat the No. 1 team in the country, whose reputation precedes them as to how good they are defensively, so you tend to rush a little bit".
No, Wednesday was about contending with the Blue Devils' unique personnel.
"We just have to step up", Carter said of playing without Bagley. "That was 40 minutes of good basketball".
Now it has simulated Virginia vs. Miami 10,000 times and came up with some surprising results. "It's tough to do that". That's what elite teams do.
Markets open on a higher note today
On a closing basis, the scrip of PNB closed at Rs 145.80, down by Rs 15.85 or 9.81 per cent from its previous close of Rs 161.65. Besides, a mixed trend in other Asian markets following positive lead from Wall Street buoyed sentiment here.
With guard Grayson Allen turning in his best shooting effort in a while, Duke turned an 8-point halftime lead into an easy 74-52 win against Virginia Tech, which was hoping to knock off another top ACC team following its upset of No. 1 Virginia on Saturday. A lack of defensive rhythm, driven by stellar ball movement from the Hokies, made it hard for the Cavaliers to establish their offense.
Blue Devils faithful certainly weren't as their team moved to 2-0 without Bagley. Virginia shut down the Hurricanes' transition game, and they managed only four fast-break points. By the time Jerome found him cutting to the basket for a thunderous dunk with six minutes to play, the threat of an upset was nearly vanquished. In that one, Miami guard Dejan Vasiljevic put up 17 points.
Over on the Miami side, they're sitting at 18-6 on the year.
ZZ: The Cavaliers' poor offensive performance in the game Saturday against Virginia Tech exposed the flaws in Tony Bennett's style, and especially why it has been unsuccessful in March.
It was Allen's best output in an ACC game after several struggle-filled nights this season.
"He's our leader", said Krzyzewski. Try to give him inside touches on most possessions and encourage him to push the ball and draw fouls. With the ball in his hands, he can make plays, he can call plays, he's in more command. That's what we need to do. "It keeps you active, it keeps us moving and with us so compacted, we clog the lane a lot". Justin Bibbs (15 points) was their lone double-figure scorer, and with Carter snaring 13 rebounds, Duke owned the glass 36-19.
