LeBron James shows up to Duke-Virginia to see Zion Williamson

LeBron James shows up to Duke-Virginia to see Zion Williamson”

Freshmen RJ Barrett and Cam Reddish did most of the damage, hitting a combined 11 of 19. Zion Williamson added 18 points, making 6 of 8 field goal attempts. He is second in the ACC in scoring at 22.0. The Cavaliers entered the highly anticipated showdown leading the country in three-point field goal shooting defense, allowing just 24.7 percent. That's the best we shot from the three-point line. Defensively, the Blue Devils give up just 65.2 points per game and they have a +11 rebounding advantage average.

The Blue Devils are certainly living up to their ranking.

Duke has recorded a steal on 13.9 percent of opponents' possessions - best percentage in the NCAA. "It's hard to miss [James] when he stands up", Jones said. Duke and Virginia didn't tip off for another five hours or so. The Cavaliers lost to the Blue Devils at John Paul Jones Arena for the third consecutive time. Duke and Virginia are meeting for the first time in the regular with each team having 20+ wins...

No college basketball team in the country would have beaten Duke on Saturday night.

LeBron James is a huge basketball fan and his Los Angeles Lakers are on an Eastern Conference road trip, so he chose to head to Charlottesville, Virginia to watch Zion Williamson and the Duke Blue Devils against the No. 3 ranked Virginia Cavaliers. But Reddish made three 3-pointers in the next two-plus minutes to put Duke back in command.

Bennett didn't hold practice Sunday and Monday for rest and recovery and indicated Jerome was moving the in the right direction with regard to his sore back he initially tweaked on January 29 in the early portion of a 66-65 overtime win against North Carolina State in Raleigh. And, yes, the result of that result has me jumping the Blue Devils above the Cavaliers in Sunday morning's updated CBS Sports Top 25 And 1 daily college basketball rankings. They now share first place with North Carolina and have two games left with the Tar Heels.

Since losing at Duke on January 19, the Cavs have won four straight games.

The committee named Duke (21-2, 9-1 in ACC) as the No. 1 overall seed.

Duke: The Blue Devils remain on the road, playing at No. 16 Louisville on Tuesday night. Duke is 2-1 in those previous games this season, beating Kentucky and Virginia, and falling to Gonzaga...

"They're very talented players, love watching them", Duke center Marques Bolden said.
