Duke had one last gasp to get back into this Sweet 16 game against Arizona, but it ended quickly. The Blue Devils forced two turnovers and had a chance to cut it to single digits, but Nolan Smith missed a point-blank layup on the break. Arizona turned that into a fast break of their own, and the rout was on.
Solomon Hill got the layup on the break on that play, and after a Kyrie Irving miss, Derrick Williams punctuated his incredible game with another three-pointer, his 33rd point of the game. After two Duke free throws, Lamont "Momo" Jones hit another pull-up jumper, pushing the lead back to 16. A putback by Solomon Hill then pushed the lead to 17 with under three minutes remaining.
Arizona has now scored 48 second-half points, compared to just 25 for Duke. As much as we all love Williams, nobody could have seen this coming.
