Jackson's huge first half leads UNC to win (0:50)

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Virginia was second in ACC play shooting 39.6% from 3-point range. That's going to take a dip after tonight. Wahoos now sit at 0-15 from behind the arc. If they fail to make one, it would mark the second time this season (missed all 10 against St. Francis-Brooklyn).

play
Hicks' monster dunk has UNC rolling (0:31)

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Surprising thing about this game is North Carolina, which leads the nation in offensive rebound percentage & 2nd chance points (18.4 per game), has only six offensive rebounds and three 2nd chance points, yet lead Virginia by 15

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

To say Justin Jackson is in a rhythm feels like it's understating how well he's playing. Now has 10 of Carolina's 22 points on 3-4 FG -- all 3pointers

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Virginia wasting no time coming with big on big double teams. Carolina's Kennedy Meeks & Isaiah Hicks have handled them so far without turning the ball over, but UVa has accomplished its goal by not allowing them to get comfortable on the blocks

ESPN's BPI

Can UNC hang on to ACC lead?

The Tar Heels will finish their regular season with a tough five-game stretch that includes two outings against No. 14 Virginia. These teams play different styles, but ESPN's BPI concludes No. 10 UNC will win on Saturday. (8:15 p.m. ET on ESPN/WatchESPN)

North Carolina will officially recognize Marcus Paige and Brice Johnson among its 43 honored jerseys in the rafters. They earned it by being named All-America: Johnson was consensus 1st team All-America in 2016. Paige was 2nd-team All-America in 2014. n order to join the eight retired jerseys, you must be national player of the year.

No. 12 Duke fights off No. 14 Virginia 65-55 (1:02)

Jayson Tatum with the dagger shots for Duke. has scored 12 of Blue Devils last 13 points and now has new career high with 26 points. no other Duke player is in double figures scoring

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Tell your friends about Jayson Tatum. That's a grown man right there. Late-game confidence continues to grow. Good timing.

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Duke's Harry Giles quietly having a solid game only 4 points and two rebounds but he's had two steals on entry passes since coming in for Jefferson. Giles has played 15 minutes, which is already his most since playing 18 at Wake Forest on Jan. 28

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Duke now in a tough spot with Amile Jefferson picking up his fourth foul with 15:35 left in the game. He's most valuable as their defensive centerpiece -- especially when paired with the young guys (Giles,Bolden) in the front court -- making sure people are in the right position. Wahoos run to close 1st half came with Jefferson on bench

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Duke can play at this pace. The Blue Devils are 8-0 in games with fewer than 70 possessions this season. But they're just 4-for-13 inside the arc right now. Gotta play more inside-outside in the second half.

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Virginia held Duke without a field goal in final 8:15 of first half. Blue Devils with eight turnovers and scoring just .750 points per possession. Wahoos have held Duke under 70 points in nine of last 10 meetings and looks like its headed in that direction again

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Wahoos methodical approach on offense has backfired with two scot clock violations in last six possessions. Scoring drought now approaching five minutes. Fortunately for Virginia, Duke hasn't capitalized and it still only trails by 3
