RJ Barrett scored 15 of his 18 points in the second half and also finished with 11 assists as the Blue Devils (31-6) returned to a regional final for the second year in a row.

When he entered the game against Houston, he was just trying to get his game legs back underneath him, but what we saw on the court was nothing short of spectacular. We make our free throws, we defend.
