Arizona knocks out defending champs

The top-seeded Duke Blue Devils (32-5) were sent packing from a regional semifinal for the second time in three years. The only thing between Arizona and facing a first-half blowout was Derrick Williams‘ 25 points. As halves go, this had to be the best individual effort of the season, concluding as it did, at the buzzer, with a bomb from, oh, about 30 feet. Williams’ teammates returned the favor in the final 20 minutes with an offensive barrage that stunned the defending national champions. But Williams’ was undoubtedly the star in this game and ended the night with a career-high 32 points of Arizona’s 93-77 victory Thursday night, helping the Wildcats reach the final eight for the first time since 2005.

  1. Duke just ran into a buzzsaw, and they were also fighting history. Arizona has a habit of making deep tourney runs when no one expects them to. Then they usually don’t perform up to expectations in the seasons when they are expected to go deep in the tourney. This team’s run reminds me of the ’97 team that caught everyone by surprise. I feel bad for UConn; I think they have no answer for Arizona’s talent.
