Charlottesville, Va. – This ACC match-up was so big,  College Gameday from ESPN was there. The number four ranked Duke Blue Devils visited the number two ranked Virginia Cavaliers in a sold out John Paul Jones arena.

Virginia started the second half with a 16 to 4 run and led by 11 with just under 11 minutes to play before some ill-advised shots, poor turnovers and Duke’s shooting turned the tables.

Tyus Jones scored 17 points and made a game clinching three pointer for Duke with about ten seconds remaining Saturday night as Duke ended Virginia’s 21 game home winning streak and handed them their first loss of the season.

Duke wins this one 69 to 63.
