Who was Man of the Match in Duke's 84-77 win over Carolina in Chapel Hill tonight?

Anyone who votes for someone other than Tyus Jones should be banned.

There is only one correct answer here: Tyus Jones. Unbelievable tonight.

Very valuable contributions by Amile tonight but bottom line is Tyus all day and twice on Sunday. Amazing performance.

Voted for Tyus, but wanted to give a partial share to Grayson for his play down the stretch after Justise fouled out.

Jay just gave a shout out for Amile, for the full court defense that changed the game.

Jay Bilas will not steal my thunder! I've been devising this post since the 10 min mark in the second half. Since there is no option for coach K I vote Amile based on his beautiful rendition of the PitinoPress. Brilliant game plan in the second half from K and Amile executed it perfectly. Complete shut down of UNC's half court O and opened up the transition game (again) at a crucial point for us. I'm going to sleep/passing out now. Btw, Tyus Jones is a god and should be worshipped accordingly.

I wanted to vote for Marshall Plumlee, but he's not there so I voted for both Matt Joneses.

FF50 has it right! Tyus was the man tonight.

Or at least "florked" at a minimum. ;)

Gotta give it Tyus for another gutsy performance. Game high 24 points (5-10 FG, 12-12ft) 7 assists, 6 boards, and 3 steals with only 1 turnover. He has just been magical in big games.

Shout to Amile because I don't think we would have won this game without his defensive presence. Tyus willed us to win, but Amile was essential in affecting the overall nature of the game.

Wish there was was an entry for Tyus Cook or Quinn Jones.

Tyus is clearly the prime vote, but one of the most important aspects of the game was staying close (and even taking the lead!) when our premier freshmen were on the bench. After reading the ESPN blog (http://espn.go.com/blog/collegebasketballnation/post/_/id/103940/cooks-presence-allows-duke-to-shine) about the game, I was convinced to add Quinn to list of vote-getters.

It was Cook whose 13 points in the first half against Carolina kept the Blue Devils -- who, minus his contribution, shot 28 percent -- from facing a huge deficit. In the second half with Winslow in foul trouble, Jones suffering back spasms and Okafor on the bench, Cook guided a seldom-used lineup to help Duke take the lead for good
I was quite down on Quinn for three years, and, now, I couldn't be more proud of him.

Ugh. Sorry about that. Autofill took the wrong "M" name, and I didn't catch it. It's fixed now, so if you want to vote for Marshall, you can. But really? That would need some explaining.

Nah, it's just snark. Marshall or Matt? I voted for Tyus Jones.

I went with Winslow. Not a popular choice, and Tyus is the easy and obvious one, but the F1 call on Winslow could have been a game changer in UNC's favor....but Winslow makes up for his mistake with 5 straight points...taking it straight to UNC. That was impressive and took the wind out of what could have been a decisive run for UNC.

Tyus Jones with a shout out to Quinn for his first half and Amile for the work he did on the press.
