“He might not have liked the result of the game, but I’m sure he liked the way both teams played.” said Coach¬†Krzyzewski after Duke beat North Carolina in an OT thriller on Wednesday night.

Quinn Cook and Tyus Jones both had 22 and Jahlil Okafor had his 1oth double-double (12 poitns & 13 rebounds) of the season for the Blue Devils who took over in the final 2 minutes of regulation to erase a 9 point deficit.

J.P Tokoto had 15 points, 8 rebounds, 7 assists, 3 steals and 2 blocks for UNC.

“It’s tough for this game to always live up to the hype,” Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said. “But I think tonight’s game exceeded it.”
