The versatile Maye scored from down low and stepped out beyond the arc to display his silky smooth jumper.The lead hovered around 10 for most of the second half until the Tar Heels got their transition game going with eight straight points on run outs - including four by Kenny Williams - to stretch the lead to 18 with 6:24 left.

The Blue Devils lost just two games when phenomenal freshman Zion Williamson played significant minutes - to Gonzaga back on November 21 in the Maui Invitational final and to Syracuse at home - and avenged the loss to the Orange and two regular-season losses to North Carolina in the ACC Tournament. A year after being smacked by the Tar Heels, the Blue Devils were easy winners in the championship match as Christian Laettner scored 25 points in the title game and was named MVP.

Barrett finished with 15 points, eight rebounds and seven assists in a matchup of two heavyweights contending for top seeds in the NCAA Tournament.

Liberty finished their conference schedule with a 14-2 record, and are sixth in the country allowing 60.8 points per game.

Jones continued his recent attacking mentality on offense, but was more efficient than in past games. The Mountain West Conference's player of the year does a little bit of everything, averaging 21 points, 4.2 assists and 3.9 rebounds.

Kabengele added, "I feel like this team is more connected".

He said his team took the wrong offensive approach.

Duke did manage to improve in an area that it has struggled mightily in throughout the season-at the charity stripe. The No. 3 seed Blue Devils beat No. 2 North Carolina 74-73 late Friday.
