Zion Williamson posted 31 points on 13-of-19 shooting and 11 rebounds—including the game-winning bucket with 31 seconds remaining—as No. 5 Duke beat No. 3 North Carolina 74-73 in the Division I ACC men’s basketball tournament semifinals Friday at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.

UNC had numerous chances down the stretch to take the lead, starting with a Cameron Johnson three-point miss with 17 seconds remaining.

Duke forward RJ Barrett grabbed the rebound and was fouled, but he missed two free throws. The Tar Heels then charged down the court, but a long Coby White two-pointer and a Johnson tip attempt could not connect.
