What's real, what's fake, and why Virginia's still full of title potential

Another wild week calls for another round of What's Real and What's Fake in college basketball:

What's real: Virginia's effort on Saturday proof of their national title potential

Tony Bennett's team put together an exemplary effort against Duke on Saturday in their 81-71 loss. The highlights (Duke's 61 percent clip from the 3-point line, Zion Williamson's wild block) rightfully led to additional adoration for a Blue Devils team that looks the part of a national champion.

But Virginia's strategy limited Duke's opportunities around the rim. The Cavaliers forced turnovers on nearly one-fourth of Duke's possessions.
