The Tar Heels scored two transition points in the second half Wednesday, and had twice as many turnovers (4) as made field goals (2) in transition for the game. North Carolina has not been able to get out on the break during conference play, averaging 5.8 fewer transition opportunities per game compared to non-conference games.
After allowing North Carolina to score 12 points off of 11 first-half turnovers, including its first seven points of the game, the Blue Devils held UNC to four points off of six turnovers in the second half. Entering Wednesday, Duke had averaged 11 turnovers and allowed 10.7 points per game off those turnovers, the second fewest in the ACC.
After a James Michael McAdoo dunk extended the Tarheels' lead to 38-31 with just under 18 minutes to go, Duke went on a 21-9 run over the next six minutes to take the lead for good. During the run, Rasheed Sulaimon scored or assisted on 13 of Duke's 21 points.
