North Carolina’s J.P. Tokoto was getting busy vs. Duke.
#15 North Carolina lost to #4 Duke 90-92 in an overtime thriller on Wednesday night, but Tarheels forward J.P. Tokoto managed to put his imprints on this instant classic by throwing down two major jams on the Blue Devils. First Tokoto skied for this putback slam before the end of the 1st half:
Then he flushed an impressive reverse dunk in the 2nd half to give North Carolina their first lead of the game:
Tyus Jones and Quinn Cook both finished with 22 points apiece for Duke, and big man Jahlil Okafor registered a double-double, scoring 12 points and corralling 13 rebounds in the victory. North Carolina will square off against Duke again on March 7th, and that matchup should be epic. Last night’s game was highly entertaining, and wrote another compelling chapter in the storybook that is the UNC-Duke rivalry.
