Duke-North Carolina Round 3 did not disappoint.Zion Williamson put his team ahead on a tip-in with a little more than 30 seconds to play and the Blue Devils held on for a 74-73 victory, despite a pair of missed free throws by RJ Barrett down the stretch. Duke star Zion Williamson on ending college career after injury: ‘Thanks, but no thanks’ Johnson finished with 23 points for North Carolina in the losing effort.Here’s three takeaways from Duke’s win:Cam Reddish continues to be inconsistentCam Reddish failed to make an impact for the second straight game.The freshman forward finished with just six points on 3-of-7 shooting in 24 minutes, one day after he tallied seven points in Duke’s win over Syracuse.Reddish, who is averaging 14 points this season, is a threat from behind the 3-point line and adds another element to Duke’s offense when he is playing well. But, he sometimes fails to look for his shot and disappears for large stretches.Duke will be even more dangerous in the NCAA Tournament if Reddish — a projected top-five pick in the 2019 NBA Draft — plays up to his potential.Duke received contributions from unlikely placesCoach Mike Krzyzewski elected to go deep into his bench when the Blue Devils fell behind by double digits midway through the first half and the strategy worked.Krzyzewski sent in backup point guard Jordan Goldwire and seldom used forward Antonio Vrankovic. The pair gave Duke a much-needed energy boost and helped it erase its deficit.Goldwire tallied two points and two rebounds in the first half while Vrankovic added a basket and two assists. Duke ended up closing the period on a 24-11 run to tie the score.Goldwire and Vrankovic — who has appeared in just 16 games this season for the Blue Devils — both started the second half and finished with 27 and 10 minutes, respectively.The committee will have a tough time seeding these twoThe committee will have a difficult time seeding these two teams.North Carolina defeated Duke twice during the regular season, but Williamson was sidelined for both of those games. Meanwhile, the Blue Devils secured a victory Friday when both teams were near full strength. Duke and North Carolina are both in contention for a top spot in the NCAA Tournament and an argument can be made for either.The Blue Devils resume can get better, and they’ll almost certainly clinch a No. 1 seed, with a victory over Florida State in the ACC championship. North Carolina could also receive a prime position in the bracket, even with the loss Friday.

Barrett chipped in 15 points, eight rebounds and seven assists but was five of 15 from the field. Related News
