The end result was a 93-77 win, lifting the Wildcats to the Elite Eight and sending the Blue Devils packing.
It was all about the second half for Arizona as the Wildcats took over and dominated out of the break. Arizona outscored Duke 55-33 over the final 20 minutes to snatch the lead and run away with it, embarrassing the Blue Devils in the process.
Williams did his work in the first half, scoring 28 points before the break, including a thunderous put-back dunk. Lamont Jones and Solomon Hill were also in double-figures, scoring 16 and 13 points, respectively.
