Second half run pushes Duke past UNC

  Grayson Allen's hot shooting helped push Duke past North Carolina.

When Grayson Allen is shooting the ball well, Duke is a different team. We saw evidence of that tonight.

Duke defeated North Carolina 93-83 and used a spirited second-half run to top the Tar Heels for the sixth time in a row in ACC tournament play. The Blue Devils have a chance to become the first team in ACC tournament history to win the title by winning four games in four days.

Jayson Tatum led the way with 24 points. Allen had 18, while Luke Kennard chipped in 20.  Isaiah Hicks and Kennedy Meeks scored 19 apiece for the Tar Heels.
