Last night, Shaka Smart told me this matchup against Duke was "an opportunity." Feels like much more than that now. Texas has a chance to leave Portland with a signifiant win that would help its resume and erase the memory of last year's struggles if the Longhorns can hold on.

For the last 18 months, Texas coaches have been raving about Dylan Osetkowski, saying he was going to be the key to their improvement. Has shown everything besides the 3-point shot so far today: six points, four boards, four assists.

Grayson Allen on the bench with 3 fouls. Duke down by 7. Mohamed Bamba altering shots and challenging everything in the paint. We'll learn a lot about this Duke team in the final minutes of the first half. Mike Krzyzewski talked about his team "responding" in situations like this. In a hole against a tough Texas team.

Surprisingly enough, Mo Bamba never faced Marvin Bagley or Wendell Carter on the Nike EYBL circuit. Bamba missed Memorial Day Weekend 2016, when his @PSACardinals faced Bagley's Phoenix Phamily (and won anyway).

Via @ESPNStatsInfo: Luke Maye is the first UNC player with 100 points and 50 rebounds in the team's first five games since Antawn Jamison in 1996-97.

Four of North Carolina's last five possessions: • Luke Maye layup • Luke Maye jumper • Luke Maye 3-pointer • Garrison Brooks layup, assisted by Luke Maye

Arkansas really missed Daniel Gafford in its halfcourt offense. Two fouls in three minutes. Razorbacks' offense hits another gear when Gafford is getting consistent touches inside. Can score himself or open things up for the guards.

Joel Berry II (2-for-7) can't buy a bucket, but Tar Heels enter the break in control of the game with a double-digit lead. The Tar Heels are just forcing Arkansas into a lot of isolation situations. Razorbacks failing to make the extra pass. Got selfish down the stretch. Have to come out strong after halftime.

Casual 14 and 10 halftime line for Luke Maye. Already his third double-double of the season.

This might be the most balanced matchup of the day. Both Arkansas and North Carolina are led by senior wings. Played a thriller in last year's NCAA tournament. Both entered the game hot, shooting around 40 percent from the 3-point line. This matchup won't warrant the Texas-Duke hype, but it might be a better game.

Arkansas' defense is swarming against North Carolina early. Three blocks and two steals in four-plus minutes, Carolina 0-for-8 from the field.

Here's a shocker: Washington State handed No. 21 Saint Mary's an 84-79 loss in the Wooden Legacy. The Cougars had four players in double digits and got a huge game from sophomore guard Malachi Flynn (26 points) to beat the preseason WCC favorites.

Saint Mary's falls to Washington State in the semifinals of the Wooden Legacy -- despite shooting better than 56 percent from 3-point range.

Chandler Hutchison is on the Wooden Award Preseason Top 50 list. He returned to Boise State for his senior season with an eye towards the NBA next year.

Coming into the season BYU had a 28% chance, according to BPI, to make the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2015. Today BYU plays Alabama (No. 33 in BPI), its hardest non-conference game in Brooklyn.

Probably not the path Villanova expected en route to a Battle 4 Atlantis title, but Wildcats handled their business nonetheless. Jalen Brunson and Mikal Bridges their top two scorers in all three games.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Solid all-around half for Jontay Porter against St. John's. Was good defensively, hit a 3 from the top of the key, put it on the deck a little bit, should've had more than one assist. High IQ.
