Jones made this Duke go-ahead three-pointer to put the Blue Devils up 59-58 and then, um, fell to the floor



This Kaminski drive and spin-move plus the finish made us dizzy, and also got Okafor his fourth foul with nine minutes left. 



We're not sure exactly how Tyus Jones made this shot, but he did. The shot and the ensuing free-throw put Duke within one, 51-50. 



Grayson Allen came alive in the second half, first on this scrappy play to save a ball heading out of bounds...



...and then on this and-one trip down the lane to pull Duke within four. The ensuing free throw closed the margin to three.



With 13 minutes left in the second half, Kaminsky went unchecked down the lane for two points off the inbounds play, putting Wisconsin up by nine



Maybe it's the high, panning camera angle, but this give-and-go wrap around between Tyus Jones and Winslow was electric 



Sam Dekker went full-Tebow on this out-of-bounds play early in the second half. The ball was called as going off Wisconsin.



Just under the 19-minute mark of the second half, Kaminsky took this feed at the elbow and went one-step to the dish for a two



With just under five to play in the first, Frank Kaminsky drove left-handed and made a shot in traffic to tie up the game at 23 apiece - and he got the foul



Traveon Jackson missed a three, but followed his shot, got the rebound and made a lightening-quick pass to Dekker for a quick two



Duke's Amile Jefferson got busy with some #swattage on a Gasser lay-in attempt (hopefully



Sam Dekker missed a running lane shot, but he didn't need to worry: Duje Dukan was there for the clean-up



On the next Duke play, Grayson Allen took the ball on a fast-break and made a roundabout lay-in to give Duke the lead



Jahlil Okafor took a nifty pass from down low by Quinn Cook and slammed it down with authority, drawing Duke within one at the 13-minute mark



The game's earliest star was Josh Gasser's contact, which flew through the air dramatically after he was poked in the eye in the opening minutes of the game.
