Here’s the sum-up:
Final score: North Carolina 88, Duke 70.
North Carolina had a strong showing on Saturday against their big rival, Duke. The Duke Blue Devils weren’t slaughtered the entire game, though. In the second half, Duke outscored the Tar Heels 46-40, but were outscored in the first half 48-24. A disappointing first half for the Blue Devils dropped them down to second place in the regular season for the ACC conference. It was Senior Night that night, and the cheerful moods were spoiled by a terrible defeat over a tough team.In other college news, Illinois State almost upset the #25 team Creighton in the Missouri Conference Championship, almost gaining a spot in their first NCAA tournament in over twenty years. ISU lost in overtime 83-79
