Duke Wins over Baylor!….will be back the Final 4 in the NCAA Mens College Basketball….

[ Duke Players rejoice at the teams win…… which puts them in the Final Four NCAA Mens Basketball Championship…..]
The Dog frankly didn’t think they’d get this far…again…..

But the Dog is tickled pink to be wrong……YES!
Watching the game didn’t make me think it would happen either……Until the last few minutes when Duke did a nice run that took them up 10 points…and sealed the deal……
………while this Duke team is hardly among the Blue Devils’ best, it has Krzyzewski back in the Final Four for the 11th time and his first since 2004. He last won a national title in 2001.

Nolan Smith had 29 points for Duke and Jon Scheyer added 20 in the South Regional final before 47,492 fans in Reliant Stadium. The Blue Devils will play Saturday against second-seeded West Virginia (31-6) in the national semifinals at Lucas Oil Stadium.

“I can’t put it in words,” the Duke senior forward Lance Thomas said.

Playing about 185 miles from Baylor’s campus and in front of the former President George Bush, Duke was booed from the moment it stepped on the court. Trailing by 61-60 with 3 minutes 36 seconds left, the Blue Devils tied the score on a free throw by Smith.

That started a 12-1 run that Duke used to break the game open and put away feisty Baylor, which had been seeking to advance to its first Final Four since 1950. During the spurt, the Bears took poor shots and lacked discipline, the latter of which is a frequent criticism of their coach, Scott Drew, who appeared to be outcoached by Krzyzewski.

Trailing by 3 at halftime, Duke tied the game at 35-35 on the first possession of the second half on a 3-pointer by Scheyer. Baylor then surged to a 5-point lead before the Blue Devils used an 8-2 run to reclaim the lead at 45-44 on a pair of free throws by Smith with 16:15 left.

The Bears briefly retook the lead before Duke scored 4 consecutive points for a 49-46 lead……
