#12 Duke rallies, tops #14 UVA, 65-55

uva basketball#12 Duke beat #14 UVA at its own game, holding the Cavs to a season-low in a 65-55 win Wednesday night.

The Blue Devils (21-5, 9-4 ACC) have won six straight after a 3-4 start in conference play. Virginia (18-7, 8-5 ACC) have lost three of four to fall back in the pack in the ACC standings.

The difference-maker was Jayson Tatum, who had 26 points on the night, hitting six of his seven shots from three-point range, including five of his six after halftime.

UVA had led 25-21 at the break, but Duke hit its first five shots from the field, taking the lead at 28-27 with 18:24 to go on Tatum’s first three of the half, and never trailed again.

The Cavs couldn’t get anything from its big two – London Perrantes and Marial Shayok were a combined 7-of-22 from the floor.
