Duke once again takes on a team that has won six of its last seven games when it plays Notre Dame in the ACC tournament semifinals at the Greensboro Coliseum Friday at 9 p.m. Duke fell in South Bend 77-73 on January 28, but it bounced back ten days later to route the Fighting Irish 90-60.

Duke will hope to avenge its Jan. 11 87-75 loss to N.C State from earlier this year when it takes on the Wolfpack in the ACC tournament quarterfinals Thursday at the Greensboro Coliseum.

After Blue Devil freshman Jahlil Okafor departed late in the first half due to an ankle injury, he never returned to top form, but the Tar Heels' stingy second-half defense ran out of steam just in time for Tyus Jones to go on a spurt that sent the game into overtime and put Duke in the driver’s seat for a home win.



Beyond the Arc: Duke basketball vs. Syracuse

(02/15/15 1:11pm)

Call Duke the Grinch, because it shut down Christmas and stole Valentine’s Day from the Orange. Jahlil Okafor led the way, Tyus Jones chipped in six of the Blue Devils' 42 rebounds—10 more than what Syracuse grabbed— and No. 4 Duke overcame a what-could-have-been performance by former Blue Devil Michael Gbinije en route to a 80-72 win against the Orange Saturday night at the Carrier Dome. Although Duke just scraped by for the third straight time against an unranked ACC opponent, the visitors stole the show in the second half for a fifth straight victory.
