Duke completed the season sweep of the Virginia Cavaliers with an 81-71 win in Charlottesville.
Duke pulled off the win in an uncharacteristic fashion, shooting lights out from 3-point range.
The Blue Devils — who went 2-for-14 from deep in January’s matchup with Virginia — were 314th in the country with a 30.8 percentage from 3-point range coming into Saturday’s game. They went 13-for-21 (61.9 percent) in the rematch.
That success came mainly from RJ Barrett and Cam Reddish, who were 6-for-10 and 5-for-8 from deep respectively.
Barrett finished with a game-high 26 points, and the freshman quartet for the Blue Devils (Barrett, Reddish, Zion Williamson, and Tre Jones) accounted for 74 of Duke’s 81 points on the night.
