Blue Devils Escape

24 Mar 2019

Trailing UCF by three, with the clock winding down on Duke's season, Zion Williamson muscled up a shot--scored--and drew a foul on UCF's Tacko Fall--his fifth. Zion missed the free throw and a chance to tie, but RJ Barrett was there for the put back to give Duke a one point lead. Central Florida's two short shots at the rim with :03 left wouldn't fall and the Blue Devils escaped with a 77-76 win.

On the GridCard, ranvilld12 (42) collected her first GridCard win of the year. ATS losses by Duke and Murray State were ranvilld12's only blemishes. When Liberty stayed close to Virginia Tech, Annabelle (41), Zeke (38), and KLC (31) jumped up the Leaderboard. Four other Gridders earned Qualifying Scores and WPNs for defeating the ProGrid Tour: kjh98 (31), Kevin K (31), mac (29) and TheDust (29).  Playing short-handed, the PGT failed to post a QS for the second straight game.
