Default More Upsets-Virginia over Duke

I watched this game and Virginia really came alive in the fourth period and kicked some butt. Virginina 87-84 over number 3 Duke. Duke is now 25-3 and Virginia is 17-9. Duke's Carlos Boozer had a career high in points tonight-30 plus, but still the Blue Devils struggled in the fourth period and lost. Duke is indeed beatable and they don't have a lock on winning a national championship. Since Shane Battier left and went pro the team lacks a real leader. The real good players like Jason Williams, Boozer and Dunleavy really don't talk up for the team. They could have trouble early in the NCAA Tournament.

Good game by VA. I was able to catch the end of this one. That had to have been an amazing 21-1 run by Virginia. To do that against Duke is really something. They really needed that win, though.

Are you kidding me? Whoa! I watched that game about halfway in the second half and Duke looked like they had the game in the bag. Great win for Virginia! Where was Jason Williams?

Williams had a chance to tie the game late, but missed the free-throw. Then he lost the ball, giving it back to Virginia, who sealed the game. Williams definately did not have one of his best games last night.

Nice! This makes Cinnci's loss meaningless!
