Justise Winslow beats UtahÂ
HOUSTON — Duke came up with impressive response as they fought an all-out war against Utah Utes in the NCAA South Regional semifinal game at NRG Stadium. This was a tough fight and Utah did everything in their possibility to torpedo Duke in the semifinal match.
Duke actually needed not just determination to move past Utah. They needed a super performance on this very important day. Thankfully Winslow came up with one such performance. There is no denying the fact that he kept the fans spellbound by his impressive performance.
It is needless to say that freshman forward Justise Winslow played his heart out throughout this important match. Had it not been for him, the picture might have been completely different. Winslow came up with a performance of a lifetime when he scored a game-high 21 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. With him in his top gear, top-seeded Duke were somehow able to outlast fifth-seeded Utah 63-57.
Sport is in the genes of Winslow and he is not the first person from his family to make it big in sports. He is the son of Houston Cougar Phi Slama Jama alum Rickie Winslow. Merely a day ago, the teenager celebrated his 19th birthday on Thursday.
The best part about Winslow performance is the fact that when Utah started getting offensive in the second half, Winslow ensured that he put them back on their rightful place. He came up with back-to-back 3-pointers. Again when the Utes cut Duke’s 15-point lead to six, Winslow punched back with a three-point play that broke a Utah run and re-established a nine-point edge.
After winning the match for his side he said, â€œI’m glad to be home, but like I said, it’s a business trip and it’s just about getting Duke two winsâ€¦We got one down tonight and we’ve just got one more on Sunday.â€
