Barrett has scored more points through his first five games in college than any freshman in the history of Duke's program.

"Experience plays a big role in this", said Norvell Jr, "We came down the stretch and got some stops. I didn't know we had MVP and stuff so I didn't know and my teammates just started (celebrating)", said Hachimura.

We opened on Gonzaga-Duke.

With the victory, Gonzaga runs its record to 6-0, whereas Duke drops to 5-1 on the season, this early out the gate.

After a timeout, Frazier's trey attempt came up way short with 16 seconds left, Gonzaga's Jeremy Jones sank a pair of free throws, Frazier's 3 was blocked on the other end, and Hachimura slammed home the final points with 1.1 seconds left on the clock.

The 20-year-old junior shot 7-for-14 from the floor and 5-for-9 from the line for a team-high 20 points, and added seven rebounds, five assists and three blocks in the 89-87 win over a No. 1-ranked Duke team featuring several highly touted pro prospects, including likely top National Basketball Association pick Zion Williamson.

The experienced Zags gave them a lesson in ball movement, orchestrating a master class in free-flowing, position-less basketball while building a 14-point first-half lead.

The Canadian sensation took a page out of his teammate's book and put on a dunk show in Duke's 78-72 Maui Invitational win over No. 8 Auburn. The No. 6 Blue Devils won a defensive-minded contest, limiting GU's Derek Raivio to four points, 16 fewer than his average.

Justin Coleman emerged as one of Arizona's top offensive weapons at the Maui Invitational, and his performance didn't go unnoticed.

Gonzaga's Brandon Clarke was the Bulldogs' main point of attack under the basket in the first half.

Coach K's team doesn't look so invincible anymore, though.

Duke trounced San Diego State in their opening-round matchup at the Maui Invitational, and it was more of the same of what we've seen from the Blue Devils this season.

The Zags not only didn't back down, they threw the first punch.

But, it was the Blue Devils' defense which got them back in this championship game.

Josh Perkins, who has won 103 games with the Bulldogs, finished with seven assists and two turnovers.

The same went for Gonzaga on Wednesday.
