No. 2 Duke regains its shooting touch to torch Notre Dame

The Tar Heels ended the week with a win over the No. 1 team in the county. Tar Heel redshirt senior Paris Kea was a handful for the Irish as she constantly drove the ball inside and either finished or dished it to teammates for layups.

"We're not in Virginia's league right now", he said.

"I like how we competed against this (team) tonight and let's see if that can be a better habit for us". We haven't been in that situation enough, and we obviously need to practice it quite a bit more.

It was the Tar Heels' first win against the Fighting Irish since Notre Dame joined the ACC in the 2013-14 season, along with the program's first win against the nation's top-ranked team since beating Duke in a 1-vs-2 matchup in February 2006.

Bennett couldn't say enough good things about Guy, who cast his lot with Virginia and the ACC over playing in the Big Ten. "We had a great game plan". "We talked a little about that". The only other loss came against No. 2 UConn.

Marina Mabrey had 20 points to lead Notre Dame, which shot 49 percent but had 20 turnovers while the defense was unable to stop Kea.

Brey said he's hopeful that junior center Juwan Durham will be back by Notre Dame's next game. We had no answer for her. Tre Jones (8.0 PPG/ 5.6 APG/ 2.0 SPG), Jack White (5.7 PPG/ 6.2 RPG/ 1.3 BPG), Marques Bolden (5.4 PPG/ 4.6 RPG/ 2.2 BPG) and Alex O'Connell (4.6 PPG/ 0.9 SPG/ 35.6% from 3) chip in as well.

Apple bans Facebook from tech tools for tracking teen browsing habits
Unlike iOS, Android supports sideloading apps, so it doesn't need to use Google's tools to distribute the app. In a statement , Facebook hit back at the reporting.

Williamson had another explosive outing in Monday's 83-61 win over Notre Dame as he logged a game-high 26 points, nine rebounds, four assists and four blocks for Duke. Back home in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, on Sunday, the Heels were looking for their first back-to-back victories since beating UNC Greensboro and Rice on December 14-18. "I don't know, it's just a lack of focus". With the victory, Virginia remains tied atop the ACC standings. But Kea was unstoppable for much of the day, finishing 11 of 17 from the floor and 5 of 8 from behind the arc. They also outrebounded the Tar Heels, and assisted on more baskets.

Mooney hit back-to-back 3-pointers, and D.J. Harvey scored five straight points, the last of those on a 3-pointer, to cut the Irish deficit to 54-42 with 13:32 to play.

The loss snapped a 198-game winning streak by No. 1 teams against unranked teams, according to ESPN.

After the Blue Devils got up 30-14, Notre Dame reeled off a 9-2 run to get back within single-digits.
