Oh, what a day this going to be.  No. 1 Duke is going to play No. 4 Virginia tonight at 6 p.m.  The Blue Devils' Zion Williamson has 25.2 PPG and 9.5 RPG against the ACC.  The Cavaliers have never defeated AP No. 1 team on the road.  Updates to come.

UPDATE:  And then there were none.  Duke edged Virginia, 72-70.  Williamson finished with 27 points and nine rebounds.  The Cavaliers suffered their first loss of the season.

Duke beat Virginia, 81-71.

It is the best rivalry in basketball for a reason.  No. 8 North Carolina is facing No. 1 Duke.  This is the 46th matchup with both as Top 10 teams.  The Blue Devils have won five of the last six home meetings.  The Tar Heels are 6-0 in ACC road games.  Updates to come.

UPDATE:  As much as I loathe the Blue Devils, I would never wish for any injury to be why they lose.  Duke’s Zion Williamson suffered a knee injury less than a minute into tonight’s game against North Carolina and won’t return.

UPDATE 2:  Down go the giants!  Duke was upset, 88-72, by North Carolina as Williamson injured his knee in the first minute.  The Tar Heels’ Luke Maye had 30 points and 15 rebounds.
