Sweet 16 Scores: Derrick Williams, Arizona Shock Duke, Move On In March Madness

Arizona used an incredible second half run to complete a 93-77 upset of top seeded Duke, in what will go down as one more surprising results of the 2011 NCAA Tournament. Not because Arizona had no shot of beating the Blue Devils, but because of just how badly they outplayed them in the second half; outscoring Duke 55-33 in the final frame.

Derrick Williams had 33 points to lead the Wildcats, but as SB Nation reports, his supporting cast really stepped up in that frantic second half.

As good as Williams was, it was his supporting cast that stepped up in the second half. Williams had 25 first-half points, but only seven points after halftime. Instead, it was players like point guard Lamont "Momo" Jones, Solomon Hill and others who really came through. It was a complete team effort that was made possible because Williams willed Arizona to compete in the first half.

Arizona will now face UConn and Kemba Walker, in a matchup of All-Americans and likely lottery picks on Saturday. We'll have more on that game as it approaches.
