Bracketologists, please remove Virginia from the bubble. 

Nation, if you don't know already, introduce yourself to Joe Harris. 

The Wahoos should be in after Thursday night's statement 73-68 win over Duke. Harris, who was averaging 20.9 in his last nine, upped that average. The junior dropped 36 on the Blue Devils, a new career high. 

The game really wasn't as close as the final score indicated. 

Virginia led from start to finish and Ryan Kelly wasn't saving the Devils. Harris took advantage of Duke's undersized guards and kept his team undefeated at home in ACC play.

The Wahoos are also tied for third place in the ACC with North Carolina, both only one game behind Duke in second place.
