"We're not at home...but we have to play our brand of ball", James said.
The first game between these two, back on February 11 in Cameron Indoor, came down to the wire with Duke claiming a 64-62 win, and Wednesday was the same. "We didn't do well in the non-conference, everybody was upset, we were upset", Brownell said.
OUR PREDICTION: The Tigers are 4-9-2 against the spread in their last 15 games when taking on an opponent with a winning record and are 2-8-2 at the betting window in their last 12 games versus an opponent with a winning percentage above.600.
The Tigers trailed by as much as 13 in the second half, but cut the lead to just one on a tough three-point play by Marcquise Reed. It's got excellent guard play, depth among role playing big men, has length, creates hard matchups for opposing defense and plays great defense of its own. "I think you'd be right to say it".
Preview: The Fighting Irish enjoyed a six-game win streak before losing at Louisville, 71-64, on Saturday as their ACC regular season schedule lightened up around mid-February (Notre Dame played Boston College twice, as well as North Carolina State and Georgia Tech toward the end of the season). Another one came on Wednesday when, in Duke's 79-72 win over Clemson, he went scoreless for the first time since 2015.
Dwayne Allen traded to New England Patriots
Should Gronkowski miss time, though, it's doubtful Allen would be able to replicate Bennett's production from the 2016 campaign. Allen, 27, is locked up through 2019 and has cap hits of $4.9 million in 2017, $4 million in 2018 and $7.4 million in 2019.
"Our guys made some big-time shots", Krzyzewski said. "It's not like we played a great zone, but it changed, a little, the tempo".
Seth Allen scored 18 points for the seventh-seeded Hokies (22-9), who took over in the second half after a slow start. Blossomgame leads in points with 17.5 while Side Djitte leads in rebounds with 7.5 per game.
"I've always felt he was, from an offensive standpoint, one, two, or three [of the] best players in the country because he really knows how to play the game of basketball", said Pitino, who recruited Kennard in high school. "So I just thought maybe we could just run back there, everybody try to stop them". "To me, I'd rather take the win than have 20 points, so I'm not really celebrating that at all".
"That's just where Coach saw the game going". The Blue Devils will face off against their arch rival and the No. 1 team in the conference in the North Carolina Tar Heels on Friday evening in the semis.
"We wanted to get a No. 1 seed, and we blew that opportunity today", Adel said. "We have all the pieces".
