    Anyone still want Jefferson and Giles in at the same time?

    Very good win!

    Great defense, and frankly, great offense, too, in the second half, led by Mr. Tatum and the PNR scheme we ran.

    Jayson. Tatum.

    The guy guarding Jayson is going to be on the ACC's all defensive team, btw. And could be DPOY.

    Good game guys! Ugly game to watch as expected but Tatum was sensational tonight. We had no answer for him. As I mentioned in another thread, Duke is a very bad matchup for us and we're a very flawed team. Predicted a 5 point Duke win. I was a little off lol. Good luck the rest of the way.

    Great win! Jayson was awesome on both ends. Also, we need a triple bonus after the 12th foul. The end was insufferable.

    Jayson was not defendable in the 2nd half. Those 3s...they could not have been better defended...and Jayson just crushed those shots.

    Delighted with the win, but I guess any game against UVa, win or loss, will be ugly.

    As Jay Bilas would say, "What a game by Jayson Tatum! What a game!"

    Jayson... I never doubted your game but I did doubt your 3-pt shot. For this I am sorry!

    Jayson obviously played a heck of a game but props to Harry Giles as well. He made some nice plays and showed some defensive quickness. It's certainly been baby steps but they are baby steps in the right direction!

    Let's keep this momentum going!

    Tatum - Stud
    Matt - shut down Perrantes
    Solid game for most
    Great minutes from Harry and Bolden. Harry looked best I've seen yet. Moving much better, getting quicker.

    Starting to look pretty good!

    Great win. I'd put it alongside carolina as the biggest of the season. The defense was fantastic tonight...kept us in a typical grinder with the 'Hoos. But the offense was also sneaky good in the second half. I'll be interested to see points per possession for the 2nd half...I'd be willing to bet it was quite good.
    Obviously, Jayson Tatum was sensational. Good minutes from Giles as well. There's lots to be encouraged about tonight.
    I can't deny that there are some shades of 2015 in tonight's performance...

    This is an impressive post from a guy whose team just lost a tough game. Thanks for being gracious.

    Great win. Solid defense for most of the 2nd half (until the last couple minutes when they were just avoiding fouls) and some solid efforts out of most everyone. Also awesome - cut down the turnovers in the 2nd and hit a vast majority of the FTs down the stretch in a physical game.

    Would have liked to see Duke keep UVA off the offensive boards better (how did UVA outperform UNC on the offensive glass against Duke??) but that, and Allen's off night, were really the only negatives from that game.

    Getting closer to the top 10 and 1st place in ACC!

    The gentlemen played really solid defense with only a few lapses. After getting abused for years (it seems) by the PNR, love that we've started to run it and take advantage of our mobility.

    Do not piss off Jayson - he will make you pay.

    Harry is starting to look like a player. May he continue to improve.

    Rest. Especially Grayson. Get more healthy.

    Finish the year out strong.

    Agreed. D was great all game. Switching the PNR attack scheme at half to have the big roll hard and have the ball handler stop and come back the other way was a great move. When UVa made a couple of shots and put some game pressure on us Tatum took over.

    Shout out to Harry for his best game as a Dukie as well.
