Dwyane Wade and Justise Winslow Visit Duke Locker Room After Blue Devils Beat Wake Forest

Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski told reporters after the game that he doesn't expect Williamson to suit up for Saturday's showdown against North Carolina, but that he'd "be surprised" is he's not ready for the ACC Tournament.

Off the court, the Tar Heels and Blue Devils look to be mired in a completely different battle, but not one unlike others they've fought in the past.

Despite what coach Mike Krzyzewski termed "a really good workout" by the freshman on Thursday, Williamson will miss his fifth full game as he continues to recover from a sprained right knee, which he suffered February 20 in the opening minute of Duke's loss to the Tar Heels.

It remains unknown whether the freshman will be ready for Duke's regular-season finale against North Carolina on Saturday.

R.J. Barrett picked up the slack with his classmate out, scoring 131 points over the course of the five games and bumping his season average up to 23.3, surpassing Williamson's 21.6.

Following the win over Wake Forest, the Blue Devils are 26-4 for the season and 14-3 against ACC opponents, one game behind joint-leaders Virginia and North Carolina.

Georgia Tech led for over 20 minutes, holding as large a lead as 10 points, but North Carolina finished with a strong fourth quarter to capture an 80-73 win Thursday in the second round of the ACC Tournament.

Even when Zion Williamson returns to the lineup for Duke, it could be too late.

"Playing with not a full deck has been very hard", he said.

"We've never played this early in a long time, it was new for us" Suggs said.

Pakistan never seriously cracked down militant groups that attack India
But India has itself hesitated to brand Pakistan as one arguing such a designation will come in the way of normalization of ties. The Kartarpur corridor was a good initiative last November by Pakistan, but the Pulawama attack spoiled the goodwill.


On Tuesday night, he sat out Duke's 71-70 win over Wake Forest, in what should have been his final appearance at the Cameron Indoor Stadium. UNC worked its way back, staging a 13-3 run over the next 2:50 of play to knot the game at 33-33.

Will Zion ever play again at Duke?

Freshman point guard Tre Jones also limped to the locker room in the second half after bumping his right knee. You are going to play.' The kid is a victor.
