The matchup between Duke and the Tar Heels on Saturday hardly resembled the 62-57 effort from their previous meeting. The Blue Devils fell 93-84 to the Tar Heels. Duke’s defeat signaled the end of their three-game winning streak.

Despite the defeat, Notre Dame had strong showings from Markus Burton, who scored 17 points along with three steals, and Tae Davis, who scored 16 points. Davis didn’t help Notre Dame’s cause all that much against the Cavaliers on Wednesday but the same can’t be said for this matchup.
