So, yeah, it turns out the Blue Devils missed one of the most dominant college basketball players of the last decade.

North Carolina (27-6) certainly had its chances to win even with Williamson on the court, an opportunity to upend its most hated rival for the third time this season, and a chance to erase the cloud that lingered over its first two victories. This one was different, and it was because of Zion Williamson.

The Blue Devils have recorded two wins in the tournament as well, taking out Syracuse on Thursday and North Carolina in a tight 74-73 win on Friday. He gave everyone the show we hoped for. I'm not going to say he's better than them, but he's a different player. "The rivalry lived up to what it was expected to be".

UNC responded well to a pair of second-half highlight-reel dunks from Williamson. But he quickly diagnosed not only that it would be off but where the rebound would be.

"The way we got back into the game wasn't strategy at all", Jones said.

Williamson helped cover for Cam Reddish, who was minus-11 for the game with five turnovers.

Williamson has been the talk of college basketball all year with his high-flying dunks and athleticism in a nimble 6-foot-7, 285-pound frame. That would be an insult to his uncommonly high basketball IQ that 1) allows him to figure out when and how to conserve his energy and 2) consistently places himself in the right position on both sides of the floor.

Williamson benefitted greatly by Garrison Brooks's second-half foul troubles. DeLaurier got out to a strong start with eight points against North Carolina last Saturday, but ended up being a nonfactor in the second half. Duke managed four points in that stretch to take a 67-65 lead at the under-four timeout.

Williamson - who barely played in one regular-season loss to UNC and not at all in the second because of a knee sprain - finished with 31 points and 11 rebounds in his second game back for the Blue Devils (28-5).

"Those kids gave us energy", Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said. They both looked the part, too - down to Duke's final punch to advance. Carolina had a play drawn up for a three-pointer, but short of needing that, the plan was to attack the basket. Luke Maye scored 14 points and pulled down 13 rebounds, while freshman standout Coby White scored 11 points on a 4-for-14 shooting night.

All that said, UNC won those first two games for a reason. The idea of an asterisk was without merit on February 20 and it still is today. "We played a team that was very good defensively". The Blue Devils had 39 minutes and 24 seconds to adjust to life without Williamson in the first game before getting blown out by 16 at home. Three weeks later, he sat out the regular-season finale in Chapel Hill, and again the Heels dominated. Unprompted, Williams had a response.

"I don't know how many, but we have been to several Final Fours. So our season's not over". The Big East hogged three No. 1 seeds in 2009. It would seem Virginia and Duke have locked up half the top seeds, with UNC, Gonzaga, Kentucky and Michigan State all vying for the final two. "It was all heart, fight and how much we wanted it".

And after Friday's prizefight, it might be that the final decision on which team is better will be made after yet another rematch in the NCAA tournament.

First, Duke is everything everyone anticipated at the beginning of the year when it's at full strength.
