In another move, Jake managed to get ahead and intercepted a pa.s.s from the Duke Blue Devils team to get a steal, but this time he didn't advance quickly to the attack and waited for the teammates to advance to the attack and the Duke Blue Devils team managed to organize the defense.
Many had already understood that the Tar Heels team was starting slowly in this game and would start to put more pressure on the attack for the rest of the game, so the team coach Duke Blue Devils asked the team to put pressure on the attack to take advantage of this moment.
But with Jake hitting 4 shots from three points and making some a.s.sists, the Duke Blue Devils team did not get any advantage on the scoreboard, the Tar Heels defense was also very good.
Jake calmly advanced the ball and before pa.s.sing the middle of the court pa.s.sed the ball to Carter on the left, Jake had not made any a.s.sistance to Jamison yet and so only Williams and Carter had scored points in that game.
Carter advanced with the ball and before crossing the three-point line he pa.s.sed the ball to Jamison who was further ahead on the left, Jamison tried to advance to make his first points in the game and failed and pa.s.sed the ball to Williams further back through right.
Williams received the ball with the freedom to attempt the shot from outside, so the defense soon pressed him to try the block, but Williams did not attempt the three-point shot and pa.s.sed the ball to Jake in the middle.
Jake was quick and after catching the ball he made a high pa.s.s to Carter who caught the ball in the air and made a dunk to make 2 more points for the Tar Heels team and complete the alley-oop, this move cheered the crowd even team losing the game.
After almost 10 minutes of play, Jake already thought that they had sufficiently a.n.a.lyzed the Duke Blue Devils team and it was time to start putting pressure on the attack and thus try to finish the 1st half by winning with a good advantage on the scoreboard.
In another play, the Duke Blue Devils team was attacking and Langdon tried to make a three-point shot, Jake was close by and managed to make a block, the ball went to Williams who held the ball and pa.s.sed it to Jake.
Jake moved quickly against what the Duke Blue Devils team's defense expected, the other players on the Tar Heels team had also received Jake's signal and knew it was time for the Tar Heels team to attack.
After pa.s.sing through the middle of the court Jake pa.s.sed the ball to Carter from the left, Carter quickly advanced past the three-point line and pa.s.sed the ball to Jamison, Jamison tried a feint and when he saw that he could not move forward pa.s.sed the ball to Okulaja.
Okulaja held the ball and pa.s.sed it to Jake who came quickly through the middle, Jake surprised his opponents by entering the middle of the defense, receiving the ball he managed to advance on the right and when another defender of the Duke Blue Devils team came to pressure him, Jake pa.s.sed to Jamison.
Jamison received the ball from Jake and made a quick move and managed to make the layup and make 2 more points for the Tar Heels team, it was Jamison's first points in the game and the defense was leaving him a little aside because of that.
So this was the opportunity for the Tar Heels team to take advantage and Jake started to pa.s.s the ball a lot to Jamison and when the Duke Blue Devils defense tried to predict the move Jake pa.s.sed it to Williams and Carter.
In the last minutes of the 1st half, Jake scored only 5 points and only made several a.s.sists for his teammates, but by the end of the 1st half of the game Jamison already had 19 points, and other players like Carter and Williams had also scored almost 10 points each.
In the 1st half of that game Jake played for 20 minutes and made 17 points, 13 a.s.sists, 3 rebounds, 6 steals, and 2 blocks, Jake didn't score as many points because he took advantage of Jamison's excellent game and decided to make more a.s.sists, like this almost all the plays went through Jake's hands.
"What an incredible 1st half we had here in this game, an electrifying game worthy of the two best teams at the ACC conference and that together have 45 games this season and just one defeat, what an exciting game."
"At the beginning of the game, the Duke Blue Devils team seemed to be dominating the game and was almost always in front of the scoreboard, only Jake managed to make some moves that left the Tar Heels team alive in the game.
"But in the last 10 minutes of the game, Jake accelerated the pace of the game and led the Tar Heels team to a major turnaround in the game and managed to turn the game around and ended that game with an incredible 22 point advantage."
"This game is unexpected and can happen for the Duke Blue Devils team to return well in the 2nd half as it did at the beginning of the game and manage to reverse the score to win the game, but I find it difficult to see that happen.
"Jake, Carter, and Williams are playing very well, but Jamison is incredible and is having his best performance this season and has already scored 19 points and managed 7 rebounds before the 2nd half even started."
"That's right, it's amazing to see Jamison's performance and this is only the second game this season that I see someone on the Tar Heels team finis.h.i.+ng the 1st half with more points than Jake."
"But Jake is certainly the main responsible for this result so far with a great defensive game, in the first minutes he was responsible for keeping the Tar Heels team in the game by making several shots from three points."
"And in this 1st half Jake made 13 a.s.sists, this is much more incredible than the games where Jake had more than 25 points at the end of the 1st half, maybe in this game Jake will break his record for more a.s.sists in a game that is of 21 a.s.sists last season."
Everyone was excited about Jamison's excellent game, who forgot that Jake was also having a great performance as a PG, but this time with a.s.sists and not many points, Jake finished the 1st half ensuring a double-double.
Coach Guthridge was also very pleased with the performance of the team and especially Jake who commanded the team's attack and increased the pace of the game at the right time which allowed them to have such a big advantage at the end of the 1st half.
The coach of the Duke Blue Devils team was very angry because he was seeing that the team was losing the game because the defense was not working very well in that game, in several minutes the players of the Duke Blue Devils team gave Jamison a lot of freedom to make the points.
Defending against Jake he knew it was difficult because he was a very skilled player, but against Jamison, it was possible if the team managed to prevent him from playing, of course, the coach did not know that the Duke Blue Devils players were already trying to do this and Jake used it to attack.
When the defenders of the Duke Blue Devils team focused on Jamison, Jake pa.s.sed it to Carter and Williams or made the points himself, and when the defense didn't try to defend against Jamison, Jake used that moment to pa.s.s the ball to him.
At the beginning of the 2nd half, the Tar Heels attack continued to press and the players were being quick to attack, in another move after the Duke Blue Devils team managed to score 3 points, the Tar Heels team went on the attack.
Jake advanced the ball quickly and after pa.s.sing through the middle of the court pa.s.sed the ball to Williams on the right, Williams advanced quickly and before crossing the three-point line pa.s.sed the ball to Okulaja further ahead.
Okulaja pa.s.sed the ball to Carter who tried to play inside and missed the layup, Jamison went up and caught the rebound and pa.s.sed the ball to Jake who was further behind, Jake received the ball and soon advanced too.
When the first player of the Duke Blue Devils team came to defend Jake he pa.s.sed the ball with a perfect diagonal pa.s.s to Jamison who was coming from behind in the defense of the Duke Blue Devils team and after receiving the ball he made a dunk to liven up the crowd more.
The truth was that in this game the defense of the Duke Blue Devils team was still doing a great job, but with Jamison playing so well, Jake had everything he needed to organize the move and give the Tar Heels team several a.s.sists to score points.
The Tar Heels team made no mistakes in defense and neither in attack with Jake leading the team on the court, the players could miss several attacks and make fouls, but there was no mistake that could give the Duke Blue Devils any chance.
In addition, in this game, Jake was very well in defense and had managed to get some blocks and steals hindering the attacks of the Duke Blue Devils team, with that the Duke Blue Devils team was unable to react and the Tar Heels team won the game with a big advantage.
So the Tar Heels team won the game with 115 points against 66 points for the Duke Blue Devils team, it was an exciting game at the beginning, but the Tar Heels team ended up dominating in the end, Jamison certainly had his best game of the season and made 41 points and got 13 rebounds.
In that 2nd half of the game, Jake played for 20 minutes and made 15 points, 12 a.s.sists, 5 rebounds, 6 steals, and 3 blocks, with another triple-double Jake was the best player in the game and breaking his record for most a.s.sists in a game.
