Somewhat surprisingly, the Duke Blue Devils are still in control of the 2011 ACC Championship Game. North Carolina's scoring woes have continued into the under four minute media timeout, despite their hard work, especially down low. Surprisingly, Duke's forwards have continued to match UNC and have prevented the Tar Heels front line from making a big impact. However, just before the media timeout, UNC made a big play that could potentially swing momentum. From 40 feet away from the basket, Kendall Marshall threw a spectacular alley-oop pass to John Henson. Henson went up and got the ball, then converted a spectacular lay-up as he was fouled by Kyle Singler. The Tar Heels have a long way to go to get back into the game, but it was the kind of play that could swing momentum.
Nolan Smith has unsurprisingly been Duke's leading scorer, but otherwise, they're doing a great job of spreading the scoring around. A total of seven guys have scored for the Blue Devils, and six of those seven have multiple buckets. They're shooting a stunning 62.5% from the field, and it doesn't look like a fluke.
At the under four minute media timeout, with 3:36 remaining in the first half, Duke leads 35-21.
