UNC Vs. Duke: The Basket Has A Lid On It For The Blue Devils

The Duke Blue Devils are absolutely getting played off of their own floor at the moment. The North Carolina Tar Heels are imposing their pace on Duke and sucking the Blue Devils into a style of basketball that they don't want to play. UNC isn't even shooting the ball that well, but because they're turning this into a track meet, they are controlling the game and extending their lead.

Miles Plumlee made Duke's first two shot attempts of the game and the Blue Devils haven't scored a field goal since. At the under-12 minute media timeout in the first half, they're trailing 22-5. They are 0-7 from behind the arc and have missed their last 13 field goal attempts.

The highlight of the first half thus far is this massive dunk by James Michael McAdoo, who threw down on an offensive rebound following a miss by Harrison Barnes.

And for funsies, here's a gif of the Devil surfing.
