Duke beats UNC in OT at buzzer

Projecting the NCAA tournament field



Selection Sunday on March 15 is looming and teams around the country have less and less time to make their mark.

Another competitive slate of men’s college basketball gave viewers great insight into which teams are trending upward and those that are falling flat, all emphasized by the CBS March Madness preview that named the top-16 seeds in the tournament as of Feb. 7. 

One team that won’t be participating in March Madness barring a win in its conference tournament is North Carolina. 

A miserable season for the Tar Heels got worse Saturday as they blew a 13-point lead over rival Duke with 4½ minutes to go en route to a crushing 98-96 overtime loss at the buzzer in Chapel Hill. 

The No. 7 Blue Devils trailed 84-81 with just 4 seconds to go with guard Tre Jones at the free-throw line. Jones hit his first shot, then, with Duke down two, intentionally missed the second. He was able to secure the rebound and drained the game-tying basket to force overtime as time expired.
