Goodchild, Duke women beat Pitt 86-64 in ACC tourney

The Blue Devils got back on track with a resounding victory at home on Saturday against Miami and should do the same to Wake Forest without Zion. North Carolina, but he offered his most fervent assurance that the freshman and possible player of the year will return to action soon.

After the final regular season game against the Tar Heels on Saturday, Duke will have a few days to get Williamson back in the fold before the start of the ACC Tournament.

"I know RJ's beating himself up" for his free-throw shooting, Krzyzewski said, "but he played a great game, and without him, forget it". Coach K said he'd "be surprised if he wasn't ready by the ACC Tournament".

"We're still preparing like Zion is going to play", Williams said.

Krzyzewski downplayed more specifics, but Tuesday was his most emphatic assurance that Williamson would, in fact, return to the Duke lineup.

"We're not as good as we are with him-that's the first thing", Krzyzewski explained.

Duke's injury list grew beyond Williamson on Tuesday night during the Wake Forest game.

Will Zion ever play again at Duke?

After the Duke win, the Heat guards were pictured smiling and laughing with Barrett, a freshman who will likely be a top-three pick in this year's National Basketball Association draft.

"I thought we needed it", Reddish said. Heading into the season, we projected nine ACC teams to make regionals but regarded 10 teams as legitimate postseason contenders. "I don't think he'll be ready for Saturday". "He'll be in some basketball workouts now".

Williamson was injured after just 36 seconds of Duke's 88-72 loss against North Carolina on February 20, but the team have won three of the four games he's missed.
