Duke Basketball: Duke needs Tre Jones to be more effective offensively

Duke Basketball: Duke needs Tre Jones to be more effective offensively

With UCF exposing Jones' biggest weakness (even though many already knew), we may see more teams do what UCF did the rest of the tournament, so Jones is either going to need to knock down those wide open shots that he's going to be allowed to take, or he's going to need to drive to the hoop where he's been more effective this season.

No. 12 OR began its run to the Sweet Sixteen for the third time in as many tournament appearances with a 72-54 rout of No. 5 Wisconsin as 1.5-point underdogs, and followed up with a lopsided 73-54 win over No. 13 UC-Irvine on Sunday to remain unbeaten straight up and against the spread in 10 contests ahead of Thursday night's matchup at the KFC Yum!

The Cavaliers hope that playing in a venue they've thrived in helps that quest in Thursday night's South Regional semifinal. "Given the talent and expectations, anything less than a Final Four appearance for Virginia would be seen as a major disappointment". Center, home floor of fellow Atlantic Coast Conference member Louisville. The Cardinals have held their first two opponents to 50 points or below and will hope to do so again on Friday with their matchup against Oregon State. Both should be excellent games!

While those clutch performances might be coincidental for Hunter, he hopes the Cavs can continue their pattern of success.

"I've learned to shoot the ball a ton better since I've gotten here, and I've become a better defender, more versatile", Cam Reddish said.

"This is my friend's bracket [group] that he invited me to, and I nearly didn't fill it out because we were just doing it for fun and I'm in a couple other ones at work and stuff".

We saw Jones do this in the ACC Championship game against Florida State.

NCAA: Correct. As far as we can tell, you're the first person in the history of the tournament to have ever done this. Cam Johnson is shooting 51 percent from the field and 46 percent from 3.

Trump Critic Michael Avenatti Arrested For Extortion and Fraud
In the federal complaint against Avenatti, it notes that he was scheduled to meet with the attorney for the company on Monday. He capitalised on his raised profile by styling himself as a Trump critic and even floated a possible presidential run.

UCF head coach Johnny Dawkins utilized his uniquely skilled center brilliantly, and Fall had a game-high +15 plus/minus. The seeding, however, doesn't intimidate the OR players.

Having four 6-foot-9 starters has helped, though OR coach Dana Altman partly credits the turnaround to having everyone again after a rash of injuries.

"They got a number of guys that can score", said Altman. "Hopefully, we can keep that up". Simply put, Texas Tech has Culver and MI does not.

At halftime, this felt nothing like Iowa's first-round win over Cincinnati, when it rallied from a 13-point first-half hole for a 79-72 win. The Volunteers are back in this round for the first time since 2014, but face a Boilermakers team in the Sweet 16 for the third consecutive year.

Fourth-year coach Rick Barnes got doused with water in the locker room afterward. You're wondering what your players are thinking. No. 5 Auburn: Auburn has won 10 straight, including two against Tennessee and another against Kansas (second round).

There's an old saying: winning leads to fun and more fun leads to more winning.

The Volunteers are 37th overall in total rebounding, grabbing 35 RPG. But as much as everyone loves a Cinderella story, the preponderance of favorites that have advanced to the Sweet Sixteen only seem to have bolstered the tourney's TV ratings.
