The Illini (1-4) lost lopsided games against eventual champion Gonzaga and Iowa State to open the Maui Invitational, but held their own in the first half against Xavier.

Zach Norvell Jr. scored 18 points for the Zags.

Quentin Goodin scored 15 points, Elias Harden added 14 and Xavier dominated the second half to beat IL 83-74 in the Maui Invitational seventh-place game on Wednesday night.

The Blue Devils will take on No. 3 Gonzaga in their third top-10 matchup of the season, but with so many different stars to fall back on, Duke could just cruise to a marquee matchup blowout as they did against the then-No.

Taking advantage of Gonzaga big man Brandon Clarke's fourth foul, Duke pulled within a basket as Blue Devils fans sent an natural disaster of noise off the rafters of tiny Lahaina Civic Center.

But 'Zags guard Josh Perkins was careful with the ball, committing only two turnovers. They actually looked inconsistent through their first two games at the Maui Invitational, but they punched Duke in the mouth early on Wednesday and never looked back en route to a 16-point second-half lead.

Like numerous Blue Devils, Reddish struggled in the first half but found his stroke in the second half to finish with 10 points. Barrett, the consensus No. 1 recruit in the 2018 freshman class, took the shot at the end of five possessions in the final minute that would have either tied the game or given Duke the lead, and none fell. The Bulldogs recovered it but were unable to get a shot off before the 30-second clock expired. "They're old and they play their butts off, and Hachimura is the guy you can go to, to get a bucket". Williamson needed a few minutes to adjust to the talent that greeted him inside but ultimately emerged as Duke's emotional engine.

Paradise was clearly not that for the Illini basketball team.

Top-ranked Duke vies for its record sixth Maui title against No. 3 Gonzaga at the Lahaina Civic Center on Wednesday night.

After a timeout, Frazier's trey attempt came up way short with 16 seconds left, Gonzaga's Jeremy Jones sank a pair of free throws, Frazier's 3 was blocked on the other end, and Hachimura slammed home the final points with 1.1 seconds left on the clock.
