This season, with Williamson off the floor, Duke has hoisted up 44 percent of its shots from 3-point range. "I can't describe it to you".

The Orange led at halftime and committed just seven turnovers on the night, while forcing Duke into hard situations all game They had chances to extend their lead in the second half, but shot just 34.3% from the field (21.7% from three).

Duke's best player is out with a knee sprain and Jim Boeheim is coaching just days after being involved in a fatal vehicle accident. "It's not going to be better next year".


The game set a record for an on-campus basketball game, eclipsing the mark of 34,446, twice against Duke.

It's a safe bet Williamson will miss the Virginia Tech game, and quite frankly they shouldn't need him to beat Miami (11-14 this season, 3-8 in ACC play).

"First and foremost, to the the Jimenez family, I want them to know how truly devastated I am for my involvement in the loss of their loved one, Jorge Jiminez", Boeheim said. "I recruited these young men to come play at Syracuse University, they needed me to try to do my job tonight, and they understand I did this feeling fully the weight of the tragic accident and its impact on the Jimenez family". Syracuse held a moment of silence before the game in memoriam. "The honoring of the family, the moment of silence, everything was handsome in that environment".


While fans and analysts argue over whether Zion Williamson should walk away from college basketball to prepare for the NBA, the No. 1 Duke Blue Devils will take on Syracuse in the Carrier Dome on Saturday without the top prospect in the country. Barrett kept the Blue Devils in the game with 17 points in the opening period.

"This is something that will be with me for the rest of my life", Boeheim said.
