Duke vs. Florida State - 3/16/19 College Basketball Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Duke Look Like NCAA Championship Contenders in Zion Williamson's Return

Best team in the country?

He defended. He blocked and altered shots, swiped passes and disrupted all in his considerable wake. He passed, one indelible assist straight from the point-guard playbook.

The Seminoles advance to face the victor of the late Duke vs. UNC semifinal for a chance to win their first ACC title since 2012.

Jones was electric in the second half, reminding fans of his brother Tyus, for how clutch he was late in the season at the end of games.

Duke's run to the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament title with a healthy Zion Williamson was enough to make the Blue Devils the No. 1 overall seed.

Shut it down! Don't risk your National Basketball Association future! "I only care about how our team does".

Coach Mike Krzyzewski was obviously excited to have his big star back on the court for his No. 5-ranked Blue Devils. Surely rust would limit his impact. Duke trailed 73-72 with under a minute to play, but Williamson scored the go-ahead basket, following his own miss off a spin move to the paint. The 68 best college basketball teams of this season will be matched up against each other, and the famous bracket will be revealed. "I thought there was a good chance we'd run out of gas". North Carolina is top-ranked in the Midwest Region.

After the game, Howard denied trying to trip the Duke star on goal. No player in the ACC tournament's 66-year history has ever attempted so many shots without missing.

However, there were a lot of uncharacteristic things that happened in that game that gave me hope the Noles could pull off the upset. I mean, that's part of the journey we're on.

Williamson played 36 minutes against Syracuse.

North Carolina improved to 101-46 all-time in the ACC Tournament and to 46-13 in quarterfinal games.

Whenever we come to this stadium they treat us very well, very grateful and happy for the victory, which was very important. During the week Messi scored twice and provided two assists as Lyon were routed 5-1 at Camp Nou in the Champions League .

Apple labels Spotify anti-competition complaint 'misleading rhetoric'
Van Thillo said: "The dominance of the two main App-stores of Apple and Google is also harming news media providers". In the past, I've argued that the benefits of Apple's approach to the App Store outweigh the downsides.

New York Giants sign WR Golden Tate: Grade, reaction and more
Chris Hogan could be part of the Giants' plan to replace Odell Beckham Jr .'s production. This week, they traded Beckham, which suggests that they're looking to rebuild.

Duke beat Virginia earlier this season when Williamson scored 27 points and grabbed nine rebounds.

North Carolina is now projected to be a No. 2 seed in the NCAA tournament after its 74-73 loss to Duke on Friday, according to ESPN bracket analyst Joe Lunardi's projections early Saturday. "The rivalry lived up to what it was expected to be".

The No. 1 seeded Cavaliers fell hard in the ACC Tournament semifinals on Friday, losing 69-59 to the fourth-seeded Florida State. Kabengele and Christ Koumadji struggled with foul trouble throughout the contest.

Oh, about the aforementioned assist. Roy Williams has his squad back in a top slot again and facing the second easiest path to the Final Four, although No. 2 seed Kentucky would like to have something to say about that, and if things stay chalky through the first few rounds they would face Kansas in Kansas City.

"Honestly, if we match up against them, it'll be a great game", Williamson said. He compared him to Henry Logan, who averaged 30.7 points per game for Western Carolina during the 1960s, and ACC icon Michael Jordan.

"You don't want to lose to a team three times in a row", Williamson said. "But he's making much better decisions". Nevertheless, at least one double-digit seeded team has made the Sweet 16 in 20 of the past 23 tournaments.

Now, ESPN's Joe Lunardi has the Blue Devils at the top of the heap, headed to Columbia, South Carolina, for the first round of the NCAA tournament, a homecoming for Williamson, a Spartanburg, South Carolina, native.

"I remember we cut down the nets in the ACC tournament a year ago and we still didn't like the way our season ended", Jerome said.

"When they're pressuring you have to attack and we didn't attack", Williams said.

Williamson hails from SC and has witnessed from afar Duke cutting down the nets.
