Six threes from Barrett lead No. 2 Duke past No. 3 Virginia

He torched Virginia for 30 points last month on an array of drives and making only one 3-pointer.

Blue Devils coach Mike Krzyzewski said James told him he planned to attend the game, a high-stakes matchup between a pair of powerhouses that might help Duke seal the No. 1 overall seed in the upcoming NCAA tournament. Kyle Guy and Ty Jerome scored 16 points apiece for Virginia, who couldn't avenge their 72-70 loss to the Blue Devils on January 19. Redick, 19 games in 2005-06). R.J. Barrett is leading the team with 23 points and 7.2 rebounds per game while Zion Williamson is adding 22 points and 9.4 rebounds per game.

Blue Devils guard Tre Jones said he was more startled to see Rondo, one of his idols, than James.

The Blue Devils are certainly living up to their ranking.

A plan to cut off the driving lanes, even if it meant Duke's shooters were wide open, proved a bad idea.

Despite Duke's blistering start, Virginia was within 41-37 early in the second half.
