Had to be Zion for the entire game, but Vrank and especially Jordan saved our butts tonight.

Goldwire shut down Johnson who was beating us single handily.

Goldwire shut the door. You have to have role players so when then do the business above expectations you have to acknowledge it. Zion was brilliant as usual.......

I voted for Zion, because he was the MOTM. But...Jordantonio Vrankwire was my favorite player.

OK. Zion was MOTM, I know that. But I voted for Vrank as a formal tip of the hat. I had such low expectations when he came in, and he played solid. Better than solid. So happy as a senior he played a big part in beating the Heels in the tourney. I also could have voted for Goldwire in this same manner, but Vrank was the complete surprise. Not exactly the Fred Lind game, but from now on whenever someone mentions Vrank to me, I will think of this game.

Yeah this is one MOTM vote that should go to Zion but Goldwire is going to get mine tonight. Heck Zion just got POY and ROY. He won't begrudge giving a little love up to Goldwire or Vrank.

Ok, people took heat from some of us for voting for Goldwire last game, but the kid did an incredible job on Johnson. Without him tonight Cam torches us for 30+.

Tonight, Jordan was much more than the Man of the Moment. In all honesty, he didn't impact the game as much as Zion, but he certainly impacted the game more than some of his more celebrated teammates. His defense on Johnson was crucial - kinda reminded me of the time Chris Carawell defended Tim Duncan. He scored a few points - always a bonus from him. And he moved the ball pretty well on offense. For his outsized contributions to this win, I'm voting for him tonight.

If you had Vrank with an assist on a Goldwire basket during a tight ACC Tourney game with Carolina, you win the Internet.

I bet Zion would vote for Goldwire! We don't with without both of them, that's for sure!

When I watch the replay, I might just watch the last five minutes of the first half then switch over to Spongebob...because until with 40 some seconds to go in the whole game, it doesn't get much better.

Vrank had 2 assists and a block to go along with his 2 points. We needed it all. GoDuke!

I voted for Mt. Zion but have this from our our younger son-in-law from Twitter:

"Jordan GODwire won the game for Duke tonight. And he dropped the L on c*rolina."

I don't get the 2 assists, unless my memory fails me. Hit Goldwire down the lane, lob to Zion and a pass out to Tre for a trey from the corner (or was that Javin?)

You could be right. I got that off ESPN'S box score. Sometimes they don't get it right. You know like; Grayson's a dirty player, the cheats didn't cheat, etc. GoDuke!

Come now. For all the non Zion voters, if anyone else had his stats you would lose your minds. All contributions were needed but please. Williamson - period.

Zion was a beast last night! I voted for Vrank because he went to my high school (Pine Crest)! He now has true important in-game video to include in his senior night video! Could also have voted for Jordan Goldwire, his contributions were also amazing! Zion is a winner, from start to finish! LGD GTHc!

This team is so much fun to watch! LGD GTHc!
