Duke 89, UNC 78

Not much you can do when you've lost Ty Lawson and Ellington and Green go a combined 4 for 24 from the field. Playing this Duke team is a lot like being the proverbial frog on a slow boil - which isn't scientifically accurate, by the way - you didn't feel like the were outplaying Carolina, and yet they kept that eight to ten point lead for much of the game. Even with a minute to play and UNC down five, I thought the Heels had the game in hand, but as well as the defense played (Greg Paulus hot hand aside), the shots just didn't fall.

I somehow don't think Duke will fair as well in March.
