No. 5 Duke braces for unsafe Notre Dame

No. 5 Duke braces for unsafe Notre Dame

The Fighting Irish rank 157th in blocks allowed per game (3.8).

"That felt good. Backboard is there for a reason", said Colson, who shot 1 of 10 in the first half and looked winded much of the night. Senior guard Matt Farrell was 3 for 11, and Pflueger was 1 for 5.

Bagley, the highly touted freshman who just returned from a four-game layoff because of a knee sprain, resumed his role as the Blue Devils' go-to threat by hitting his first four shots.

Allonzo Trier scored 22 points and 15th-rated Arizona went on a 14-0 run in the second half to beat Colorado, 83-67 and advanced to the Pac-12 semifinals. Texas (19-14) is still in position to make the tournament, but the Longhorns will be watching results and looking over their shoulders the next few days.

Top-ranked Virginia was able to breeze into the ACC semifinals with a dominant performance against Louisville.

"Bagley was just the first pick in the draft", Brey said afterward.

"I thought we hung in there defensively and did about as good a job as you can do on Robinson and Bowman", Brownell said.

Right on cue, Clemson knocked down eight-consecutive field goal attempts, rattling off a 23-8 run. Yes, their two worst losses came when they were also at full strength. All five of BC's starters had a hard time closing out on outside shooters, frequently gravitating toward the paint, only to find themselves flailing toward the arc, desperately trying to contest long-range shots. Overall, Tech shot 41.7 percent, significantly lower than their season mark of 49.9 percent. "It's going to be another opportunity for us, and we're excited about it". Just as the game was slipping away from head coach Jim Christian and Co., Jordan Chatman drained back-to-back 3-pointers-a sequence that revitalized BC's offense.

The tide had hardly turned, though. The senior then gave way to Bagley in the second half. Meanwhile, Gabe DeVoe was feasting on the Eagles' increasingly porous defense. Notre Dame suffered a seven-game losing streak in the middle of the season, won just eight regular season games in the ACC and lost to the likes of Ball State and in while at full strength. But he wasn't the only one that had himself a day.

The freshman big man was often the Blue Devils' lone scoring threat in the low post, as Wendell Carter Jr. had one of his most disappointing showings of the season with four points and four fouls in only 17 minutes on the floor.

Following the break in action, the Hokies kept their momentum by finishing the half with scoring 11 of the next 15 points. I think Coach did an outstanding job even keeping them in the mix until those guys got back. But Boston College deserves credit for whittling Clemson's lead, once at 16, down to three points with less than five minutes to play. The second half was a different story. Both times, Clemson answered. Later, Bagley hit a soft jumper over Martinas Geben that lifted Duke to a 72-56 advantage.

And three Quadrant 3 losses.

"He played gingerly tonight, and we'll see about tomorrow", Krzyzewski said.

With a potential NIT berth on the horizon, there's still time for additional growth, both individually and program-wide-at least as far as the fourth-year coach is concerned.

The Hokies have no games on the schedule in the near future, but that'll change this Sunday when the NCAA selection committee places the Hokies in its 68-team bracket.
