Duke vs. North Carolina guide Start time stream

The Duke star has officially been ruled out for Saturday night's matchup against rival North Carolina in Chapel Hill, the regular season finale for the two teams. He was hurt in the opening minute of last month's home loss to the Tar Heels, missing the rest of that game and four that followed. Goodchild also set a Duke record for three-pointers in a season by a freshman.

Thanks to their much-hyped frosh trio of the forementioned Williamson, who is widely expected to be the top overall pick in the upcoming 2019 NBA Draft, swingman R.J. Barrett and small forward Cam Reddish, the Duke Blue Devils are listed as 6-1 odds to win their sixth national title according to online betting site, Odds Shark.

The 6-foot-7 freshman forward, sidelined since suffering a sprained knee on February 20, didn't play in No. 4 Duke's 71-70 win over Wake Forest on Tuesday night in its home finale.

Miela Goodchild hit five 3-pointers and finished with 19 points to help No. 11 seed Duke beat Pittsburgh 86-64 on Wednesday night in the first round of the ACC tournament.

"We'll put it out", Krzyzewski said.

Williamson returned to basketball activities on the practice court Tuesday for the first time since his injury. If the Cavaliers defeat the Cardinals, the victor of Duke/UNC finishes runners-up in the ACC regular season and earns the second seed in the conference tournament.

At one point, Wake led by as many as 10, and it was only a pair of misses near the basket at the end that allowed Duke to escape with the win. "I think it bothers him that he hasn't been with us".

UNC coach Roy Williams on Thursday said the Tar Heels (25-5, 15-2) were preparing as if Williamson would play, but "why worry about that part of it?"

"The way it's going, he's not going to be doubtful for the tournament", Krzyzewski said.

Barrett is the only major conference player to score 13 or more points in every game this season. Chanin Scott posted a double-double and was one of three players to finish with double-figure scoring numbers. You are going to play.' The kid is a victor.
