THE NUTSHELL

In front of a raucous crowd, Duke clinched the top seed in the ACC tournament by beating arch-rival UNC. The Devils secured their second straight regular season championship and their 10th overall in a game that was a bizarre reverse-image of their loss in Chapel Hill. Duke started fast in that game, went through a slow spell and almost came back to win against an opponent that couldn't hit their free throws. In this game, UNC took an early lead before Duke rallied; the Heels only stayed close because the Devils couldn't hit their foul shots. While the Devils got significant contributions from frosh Haley Peters (6 points, 7 rebounds) & Tricia Liston (7 points) as well as junior Shay Selby (7 points, 3 assists), this day was really all about the seniors. Duke's seniors channeled the swirling emotions of the day into effort, as Karima Christmas had a double-double, Krystal Thomas won the ACC rebounding championship by grabbing 13 boards, and Jasmine Thomas led all scorers with 17 points--11 in the decisive second half. Duke now moves on to Greensboro to try to claim a second straight ACC championship. With six ACC teams in the top 25, the event promises to be a wild shootout.

Top Performers:

  • Jasmine Thomas: 17 points, 5 assists
  • Karima Christmas: 14 points, 10 rebounds, 6 assists
  • Chay Shegog: 14 points, 8 rebounds.
