Duke Vs. Arizona: Wildcats Rally To Tie Game At 53 Early In Second Half

Arizona has started off well in this second half of its Sweet 16 game against Duke, as it finally gets other players involved other than Derrick Williams. Kyle Fogg hit a three-pointer, Solomon Hill hit a layup and two free throws and Jesse Perry scored as well, as the Wildcats have now rallied to tie the game at 53. 

Williams, who starred in the first half, didn't take a shot for Arizona's first couple possessions. But while the Blue Devils have made a couple nice plays, it's been Arizona's supporting cast that stepped up. The Blue Devils responded initially after Arizona cut its lead to 48-47, but Lamont Jones punctuated another Arizona with a transition jumper to tie the game. 

Nolan Smith, who was very quiet in the first half, got off early with a jump shot, as both teams try to get more of their players in the game. Kyrie Irving also hit a jump shot, and Andre Dawkins added a three-pointer, but those have been the only two field goals for the Blue Devils thus far in the second half.
